As at all the places in Cartagena, the price/quality balance is off at this place. Furthermore it's a nice hotel. The room had a/c and a small, shared balcony. The breakfast was good and served at the nice rooftop terrace. The place is nicely located and decorated as well.

Nicely decorated hostel, nice staff and quite a good location. The breakfast is simple, but nice and everything is clean. All the private rooms are at the first floor, where there is only one, very spacious, bathroom. Not a real problem since there are 5 more showers at ground level, but a bit unhandy at times. Our private room was very tiny, but had a fan. The hostel lacked atmosphere and interaction at our time of stay, but that could've been us or the mix of people there at that time.

Great place if you go for great scenery, well designed places and good food. We had a glamping tent and the view was spectacular. The food is good as well and the staff is nice. It is a bit quiet though and the reception closes at nine, leaving you unable to get drinks. Also be aware that it's a 25 minute walk to town. However, for us it was a perfect getaway. (Don't go if you don't like Dutch people, there are loads of them :))

Nicely decorated hostel in a great location, near the park. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the room we had was spacious and clean. The hostel has a couple of patios in which you can hang out, but during our stay it was very quiet most of the time. Breakfast is good as well.

A good hostel, good quality for price and cleanliness for Paris standards. If I had to think of some negative points it would be: the strange Wi-Fi system, the unfriendly cleaning staff and the small rooms. But to be honest those are all no real problems at all.

Especially when it's your first stay in Istanbul, this is the perfect hostel. Close to all the main sights and near the port/bridge so it's also easy to cross the golden horn/Bosphorus. But also if you've already been to Instanbul it's a great place to stay. Great rooms (no bunks + en suite bathroom), great roof terrace, great staff! Mahmood and Achmed make shure you have a good time with BBQ, shisa, games, tips and parties.

Chelsea Hostel is oké, great and safe location, good prices, but the 'hostel-atmosphere' isn't really there. Small dorms, shakey and limited wi-fi and common rooms that close at 22:00 don't help. Still I would recommend this hostel, it's easy to get around from there and see wonderful NYC!

This is a great hostel, the staff is sweet, helpfull and like to party. They organise great activities and help you find the cheapest and best tours during the day! The hostel is clean and situated perfectly in the main street of Reykjavik. Only negative point I can call is the small roomsize and little ventilation in the room.

A very nice hostel, nice staff, perfect location if you're in for a prty, and a little sightseeing it will suit you. Must say the common area was a bit empty, so not too good for meeting people.

Small but nice hostel, nice staff, perfect location. Guadi's Casa Batlo is around the corner! Almost every night the staff plans trips out so you'll meet people easily.

This is a strange hostel, rooms without windows or fresh air, no charachter at all, staff is unable to handle the most simple taskes and showers with no privacy. To illustrate: the staff hung up posters saying that no alcohol could be used in the hostel, while we were drinking some beers. Their explanation was that it was not allowed, but it was allowed...right..
