So many activities on offer at Empedrado. We did empanada making class and wine tasting class, it was really fun! We also did the wine tour through the hostel, it was a great day. Very sociable hostel, met some great people. Just don't book the two bed mixed dorm if you want space... it's a dogbox!!!
We loved La Chimba! Great hostel if you want a fun party, right in the heart of Bella Vista. We had a great queen sized bed which was really comfy. Only recommendations to the hostel would be put more utensils in the kitchen and PLEASE clean the shared bathrooms more regularly. Some bathrooms didn't even have working lights!
Great view of the mountains! Yummy and big breakfast, comfortable beds and (mainly) hot showers. Good location, about a 5 minute walk to the old town. Not a huge atmosphere for meeting others, but we're a couple so it didn't bother us.
Me & my partner stayed here for a pleasant night. Great staff very helpful. Safe neighborhood. Awesome breakfast, comfy bed & hot shower. We recommend if you would like to chill out.
Best place we stayed in all of Colombia! Don't even hesitate booking this place, it's amazing. Pool, movie room, ping pong table, bar, AWESOME STAFF, heaps of activities to do. Plus you're staying in an ex-cartel mansion, do the free house tour while you're there, it's great! We miss this place so much, it became a home away from home. Will definitely be back!
We stayed in a 4 bed dorm, which was basically like a sweat box. If you're wanting to stay at this hostel you really must book airconditioned rooms... Cartegena is HOT! There really isn't anywhere to escape the heat in this hostel. Despite the family/staff at the hostel all the time the place was very dirty.. it wouldn't hurt if someone picked up a broom every now and then.

Not the best location, unless you want to just stay in the clubbing area. About a 20 minute walk from public transport. Staff weren't super friendly, didn't really seem interested in their jobs. Beds were comfortable, hot showers, good breakfast.
The Hostel had big rooms alot of space, great chillout balcony in the common area. only a 5 minute walk to the central plaza but far enough to be quite. Great staff very helpful ordered pizza on our behalf. If you are in this area stay at Kolibri Hostle :)
If you're looking for a secure hostel and a decent nights sleep DO NOT STAY HERE. Wouldn't recommend this property to anyone. The 'private' rooms are not private, the walls don't reach the ceilings so you hear slamming doors and loud inconsiderate others at all times of the morning/night. If your neighbour turns their light on your room is lit up like a Christmas tree. I had clothing taken from my room after the cleaners changed the sheets and never to be seen again. Spend your money elsewhere.

Cool Bungalow fan room ok in low season wouldn't like to know how hot it would get in the high season.. Great staff, easy access to the beach. Music should have been cut off at 3am not 5am.
Great hostel, clean & the staff were friendly. The Bungalows with private bathroom are a treat nice place to relax especially by the pool. Only a short walk to the Seafood & Crab Market or even borrow one of their bikes an easy ride. Don't forget to have dinner at the Crab Market beautiful sunsets.
