This hostel is in a great location on one of the prettiest streets in Cartagena, in between 2 popular plazas with lots of shops, restaurants and bars, and very close to the wall. The staff are so friendly and helpful- I was there over my birthday, Andres brought me a beer and a cake More

Great location and really nice chilled atmosphere. It's not a party hostel but easy to meet people to party with if you want. Comfy dorm beds with lockers. Quiet :-) Andres on reception is so helpful, informative and lovely. Breakfast is just toast and cereal. Could use more power points More

Good hostel, the safes available in the dorms are awesome especially in this town and the Netflix on the tv with air con in the tv room is a great touch for a Sunday hangover More

El Viajero is a nice hotel inside Cartagena's Old town walls. It has nice facilities and is clean but it's very impersonnel: the person at the front desk shows you through the video surveillance where the facilities are and give you your sheets, that's all. You have to do your bed. I More

After a really long journey to cartagena we were really disapoointed in the room, I came with my dad and specifically booked a twin room, to find it was a double but we wouldn't have booked it if we'd known that. They said they'd tried to change it but it wouldn't let them, however they More

It was fine, but there was no atmosphere and the Staff couldn't keep track of who was there so they asked me multiple times who I was and what I was doing there which doesn't really make you feel welcome. More

It is a lovely chill out place in the center of Cartagena. There are two big supermarkets located nearly and the staff is really helpful. In addition is a clean hostel with a nice terrace and space to relax. You can meet chilled travelers from all over the world. Last but not least the More

Great location, it is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Cartagena. It's a more traditional and tranquil part of the city, away from the craziness of tourist bars. There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. More

Good points are the location, the air con in the rooms ( but only switched on at night), the staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. Not so great things, the showers have hardly any space to change, no hooks, dorms very cramped, lockers on top bunks really hard to access/ More

booked 2 hostels online for 2nd & 3rd night in Cartagena because hostals I new about were fully booked. Still needed a hostel for that first night in Cartagena and found one after a suggestion from a charming lady street vendor. The suggestion from the lady was the best and once I More

Very disappointed in this hostel: -- we booked two beds in an 8 bed dorm, when we arrived, they gave us two beds in a 10 bed dorm and charged us the same amount. -- every recommendation they gave us proved to be incorrect: restaurants that had closed, buses that didn't service that More
