We were a group of five members. Only one night we had to sleep in a separate bedroom. Each bed has a locker, that is really big: all my belongings could fit perfectly. You have to bring you own locker, or buy one at reception. The dorms don't have a key, so you could enter freely in any dorm you want (that was kind of insecure in my opinion. You only have 2 power outlets for all the room

VEry clean, nice hostel, without sounding lame the music spekers should only be in the bar as difficult to sleep before an early flight. But otherwise lovely lovely staff helpful, friendly, nuce bar, great atmosphere in perfect location to explore the old city. Loved it here and have already reccommended it to others,.

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.

The hostel was fine, there is just no atmosphere. But that was due to the insane amount of argentinean groups staying there. I have no problem with argentinean people, but when they are a group of 10 people they stay inside their group and, for this reason, it wasnt easy to meet people there. Even at the bar. Despite that, the hostel was good, best value for money in Cartagena probably.

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.

Party hostel

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.
