Hostel is short walk to the city center. The lounge area is big and they have a full kitchen for its guests to use. Edith and Alex are extremely friendly and were understanding when we had to change our reservations. The last night we had an encounter with a flying cockroach in our room.


Stayed here my first 2 nights in Cartagena, it was great. I made the mistake of booking the 5-bed room online in advance, without knowing that this is the only room without AC. Lucikiy, there was space in the 6- and 10 bed rooms which both have AC. Pay a few bucks more for it, it's worth it here. Wifi was super fast and worked in the common area and in the dorm rooms. Bring a small lock to keep valuables in the available lockers.... big enough for an ipad mini and the rest of my gadgets.
