We had a great time in Cartagena. The staff at Mama waldy was very polite and helpful at all times.


Rachel and Lorenza that worked there are amazing. Friendliest chicas and really made me feel at home! (along with everyone else that worked there as well)

Thank you for all the help! Staff (specially the blond girl and the guys who speak like Cubans) are super nice. They helped me to arrange one more night and also to get one day tourits vists. The place is located super close to the heart of Cartagena. The environment is nice, with music and people having fun.


Absolutely tremendous staff, but the dorms were a litle too small for the amout of people & the bathroom was always wet and quite dirty. Also, breakfast was average at best.


This hostel was friendly and clean and there was a WONDERFUL girl working there who was extremely helpful called Rachael!
