Mamallena had a very good vibe. All of the staff was friendly and I loved that we were able to book and coordinate different trips right at the hostel. I loved the open common area where we could meet other travelers. The restaurant and happy hour at the bar; I loved the mojitos! Overall, a agreta experience. Thank you! Air conditioning was definitely a plus!

Great hostel, really helpful staff, they can help you get to your next destination and book it all! Great location, only a few minutes from the old town, supermarkets etc. Very clean, has a basic kitchen and the food at the restaurant is a little pricey but really good. The only downside is the aircon is only on from 9-9. So if your planning to stay in your room hungover all day-don't even think about it.


Great location in the old city. The pancake breakfast was pretty good too!


Great location, just outside the old town with lots of little restaurants and bars to choose from nearby. Very social hostel and lots of fun, but not the best if you want to go to bed early, all rooms overlook the courtyard, which they shut down at midnight I think, which is reasonable. They offer lots of info and bookings for Playa Blanca, Santa Marta, Panama San Blas Islands, and more. Very convinient for lazy people.


Great location. Basic room but all ok. Definitely recommend.


Great hostel! Staff super friendly and helpful! Air conditioning is a god send in Cartagena. Love the hostel animals as well!

And they all loved you right back :) Staff included!!


Nice hostel in a good location - Getsemani. Private room had air con and a pancake breakfast. A little noisy at night as the rooms surround the central courtyard. Helpful and friendly staff, and a direct shuttle organised for Playa Blanca and transfers to Santa Marta/Parque Tayrona. All in all - a good hostel.
