WiFi is surprisingly really good especially considering everyone is just sitting around on their phones in the lawn chairs. It's nice that they have real safes with chargers in them but they are really small and no bedside light / bedside outlet. The lockers are big but loud and inconvenient to have the person from the top bunk milling about waking the bottom bunker. AC is really cold in rooms if you like that kind of thing.

Nice hostel in great location. Carlos is the best staff! He explained to me all the cool places to go in Cartegena and around. He helped me book taxi and catch my bus on time as well. If you get the chance to meet Carlos during your stay, that is awesome! :). Thank you Carlos for making my stay a nice one.

Fun for your traveling partier. However, on night we had a flight to catch the next morning, there was loud music and drinking right outside the rooms and showers til 1am. Then loud cleaning staff around 6:45am the next morning.

Great hostel in Cartagena in an amazing location! Rooms are clean, common areas nice. The only minus for no pool (Cartagena gets hot!).

At best the staff treats you like you're ruining their day whenever you have a question. At worst they steal from guests in plain sight! The management is sh*t and won't deal with this. Also they make you make your own bed which is so fun when you show up at 12am and have to fumble around in the dark to make your top bunk and wake the entire room. On the bright side other travelers staying there were great and the salsa class was fun.
