I have been in two different hostels in Cartagena and i completely recommend EL VIAJERO. Incredible people, incredible atmosphere and incredible location. It was in the most beautiful part of Cartagena. You get to meet lot of people from different places. And you have the opoortunity of doing different activities durning the day and night. At night the hostel has a great bar with great free activities for you to meet other people I tottaly recommend this place.

If you want to relax and go to bed early this is not the hostel for you. Lots of people up late... good for socialising. Cold showers are refreshing. Dorm beds comfortable and air con realllllly cools you down in the room. Lockers under the beds can be a little frustrating to access. Laundry service seems to charge 14,000 regardless of the size of the load. Count your items before and after. Breakfast is sugary cereal, white bread with jam and juice. Internet good. Staff pretty good.

Security is non-existent. After moving to a different hostel I realised I had forgotten a t-shirt on the clothesline here. 2 days after I had checked out, I just walked in, took my T-shirt and walked out again without anybody stopping or questioning me (the people at reception could not have recognised/remembered me). Only 1 power outlet in dorm and that was under dripping a/c so we could not use it fearing a short circuit.

The hostel is amazing with great atmosphere, and the staff is very simpatic and eficient. The breakfast is Simple but is good (cofee, Milk, juice, fruits, bread, butter,, corn flakes) The location is the best as possible, with good security and easy acces to al places in cartagena. One of the best hostels ever.

Nice Hostel to stay, it was just a bit overprice at the time we were there, but thats the disadvantage if u travel at the high season. But the Hostel was very clean and they organize almost every evening something, so its as well a very nice hostel to travel alone.

A good place to stay

Location is ideal, you definitely want to be in historical district. Free breakfast in the morning. AC at night is adequate. Overall cleanliness was great (this isn't a hotel). I would definitely stay here again. The bar area is a very nice, turns to a social meeting ground at night. More than adequate.

Big party hostel indeed. Lots of travelers. Basic free breakfast. Close to the supermarkets. Clean hostels since it seems there's always someone mopping the floors and bathrooms.

This was a great stay for a party hostel. The roommates were rather respectful and the bathrooms were clean. There was no hot water and the shower pressure was low.

Was only able to book a private room ahead of time. Did not realize I would be in an "annex" as they called it. Heard the hostel was great socially, but being in this annex was very isolating, or else you had to walk down about half a block to the main hostel, but very annoying to have all your stuff half a block away.
