Only one shared shower & toilet for 10-bed dorm and then staff usher you to the ensuite in the 6-bed regardless of time of day. Staff clean from 7am and it's not ideal when you are sleeping... Internet is decent and it's central location is good.

Great hostel. Fantastic location right in the heart of the old town (can be a quite noisy with live music going on in the square outside at the weekend!) Staff were super friendly and made us feel at home. Bloody hot in Cartagena: we had a dorm without air con but tbh it was fine. If you are staying here on a Sunday make sure you check out the republic hostel which is a few doors down. It has a free pool party (usually charges) good way to cool down from the horrendous humidity levels! Enjoy

Great location, with friendly and helpful staff. The hang-out room has air-con, a necessity in Cartagena. Has lockers, but they are very small, and only the upper ones (barely) fit a computer. Rooms and bathroom are clean'ish. Few bathrooms, so some would use the one bathroom in our dorm. Not a problem, just a bit weird. Kitchen is basic. Not a very social hostel, or perhaps I was just unlucky.

A really good location, perfect for exploring Cartagena. In comparison to other hostels in the area, this seemed the best value for money. Common area was next to all the rooms so at night got a bit loud. Kitchen was better than other hostels and staff were really friendly and helpful.

This was a really great place to spend 5 days in Cartagena, the location couldn't be more central. The kitchen is very big and lots of people make their own food so it's great for solo travellers. Air conditioned common room during the day was good for the Cartagena heat. Would recommend to any budget travellers looking to meet people. Main complaint was the one bathroom (which had both the shower and toilet) for 10 people

While the location is great, the place itself is pretty run-down. We booked a private room which costs about the same as other private dorms in the city, but the bed was completely run down, towels were dirty and door barely opened because of a broken lock. The kitchen and bathroom are right next to the room so it doesnt feel quite like a private room at all. Not great to be honest, zero atmosphere and pretty dingy.

What an amazing place. Treated us like kings! Coffee every morning, super nice and extremely helpful staff. Luz, the receptionist made it all even better by offering her services whenever we needed anything. We stayed here a week, and came back for another 5 days once opportunity arose. The location is incredible. Literally in the centre of all the shows and attractions. Highly recommended! Definitely check this place out!

This place was great! Good wifi, comfortable beds, nice kitchen and lounge areas. It's right on a little lively plaza. There's a cool balcony to overlook the street performers outside every night. The rooms have A/C too!

Great little spot in the middle of the old town overlooking a plaza, and great value (for Cartagena). Staff were very welcoming, kitchen good but needs more than the one bathroom! Good common areas, really nice atmosphere with lots of people when I stayed.
