It was great. Super friendly staff. Clean rooms. Overall just a great time.
This was a wonderful hostel inside the walled city. Close to restaurants and historic sites. The other backpackers were friendly and the hostel bar provides for a fun evening. My favorite part was Ronald behind the desk. He is so funny and friendly. I recommend this place.
This hostel is nice, but not very clean. Also staff wasn't helpful with some simple questions and acted as if they were being bothered if you asked them for advice.
Great location and cool place to hang out. Very friendly staff.
Great time. Very good staff who helped me and recommend for things to do. Also they have great activities in the hostel. The area is good to walk by day but don't go at night near the walls.

Good hostel in the old city! Close to everything! Breakfast included, but pretty basic.
Great staff and location. Made amazing friends!
Loved this hostel... Atmosphere was lovely, staff lovely and other travellers lovely also. In a very good location. Really good if you are travelling solo because it's easy to meet people. Always something to do in the evenings.
A big hostel near to a great restaurantes, market and banks. Nice atmosphere and easy to meet people! Not a party hostel, but the bar is great and a lot of people stay there at night. The AC helps a lot, but the bathroom inside the room could be better! I recommend and my stay there was awesome!
Always clean, friendly atmosphere and in a great spot, El Viajero was the perfect base for our 6 night stay in Cartagena. Staff were helpful with organising day trips and the free breakfast is basic but does the job - supermarkets really close if you want to make it more exciting! Be sure to head to Media Luna hostel on Wednesday night for a party and check out gelateria Tramonti for real ice cream on those hot afternoons. Would definitely stay here again if I found myself back In Cartagena.
Noisy at night with music so if you want quiet might not be the best place.But great atmosphere and so helpful
This is a good hostel with comfortable beds, excellent wifi and good A/C when its on. Location is brilliant, in a very safe area and next to a supermarket. I vividly recommend it! Bad news 1: While in the hostel we must to use a red bracelet to control the entrance of the guests, but I didn´t feel it safe... at the end I felt like anyone could get into the hostel, guests or not. Bad news 2: no keys to close rooms door.
I went with my best friends and what a nice experience we had in Cartagena thanks to the amazing staff in the hostel, thank you Alvaro for all the 411 and your welcoming attitude
What a great hostel in Cartagena, AC in the rooms, daily activities in the bar, they have an agency in the reception so they help you with all of the tours, breakfast could use a little help and the staff is very welcoming and helpful with all you need, specially Avaro
LOVED this hostel, I initially stayed for 1 night, but it is sooo good I decided to stay longer, the staff is awesome and it truly is one of the best I came across, Alvaro thank you for all the info and for being so patient hahaha
The location of this hostel is good. There is also many common areas. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. There is many tours/activities help at this hostel.
