Returned after a trip to Santa Marta before flying out, best hostel in Cartagena

Staff very unfriendly and unhelpful but a great place to meet other travellers, will be hard to get a good sleep as the place is quite noisy but this is partly down to the bar being open late even though the bar is very good a well priced

Friendly staff. Willing to help out and show tourists where key tourism places are located. Happy hour and salsa lessons are great. The atmosphere is welcoming. Easy to get to know other tourists.

El Viajero has a great courtyard and lively bar which is great for meeting people. Lockable safes in the dorm which is great. Staff aren't friendly and no towels provided but great if you fancy more of a party atmosphere.

Very solid hostel. Everything you could want including a bar and aircon. Breakfast is simple but free and the wifi is strong.

Well located. Friendly and helpful staff. Room and hostel itself are ok but nothing special. Bed was comfortable and all rooms have aircon, thankfully.

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 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.

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!
