Disappointing. Staff stuffed up bookings which meant they came into the rooms at 2am talking loudly and switching on the lights. No apology. Aircon is only on at night but this isn't mentioned until you get there. Staff were rude, I got given only half a cup of tea at breakfast, and the rooms were tiny. Basically just trying to cram in as many people as possible and cutting costs at guests expense. I won't be staying here again.

The place is only few minutes from the tourist city, they offer a god quality of breakfast that aren't the same everyday. The hostel is safe, but the man of the street of cartagena simply doens't respect woman, so you may feel unsafe. I did not like the arrangement of beds, are bunk beds, but is like if they had added on more bed in the middle, so tere are not much space for the legs, I myself hurt badly my knee.

Only stayed for one night, lady who who first greeted us was extremely rude and unhappy. If you get put in a 3 bed bunk those are extremely awkwardly placed, but it won't be bad if you're on the shorter end. Locations was very clean and in a great location. Other than the first lady who greeted us the rest of the staff seemed nice and helpful

A cozy and homely hostel, with comfortable common areas - both outdoors... and a nicely designed lounge area, with an open-window looking out to the street. Great for chilling out after a day under the hot Cartagena sun. Excellent location, steps away from a main plaza full of life and activity in the evenings... and plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. The staff although polite and professional, don't really hang out with the guests... which is why the only low score was for this.

A great, chilled out hostel. Super friendly and helpful staff. Comfy beds and great facilities. Super fast laundry service is also awesome. Located a short walk to the historic district and about a half hour walk to the beach/resort area of Cartagena. No complaints here.

We had a good stay at the hostel. Just one night! It is small, even the rooms but was sufficient. The neighbourhood is amazing, you are right at the plaza! And we had an included breakfast (not common for Colombia)

Vibrant common room, although they had it booked as an overflow bedroom for a guest so couldn't really spend time there. Bunks are quite close quartered, but you do get a key for a locked space in your room which was nice. Located near many other hostels and right by a lively square where the local youth also hang out, so it's a pretty chill scene.
