    Great location. Beds are comfy and they have pull down curtain for privacy which is lowkey a great addition. I personally found it very social as a solo traveler. People at the front desk are very accommodating and helpful.

David was great and Alvaro gave me some of the best tips. Everyone was so happy and welcoming. Book this place! I’ll be back for sure! Fisher

    The hostel is located inside the old city, which makes it close to all the good restaurants and clubs. Everything is within walking distance. The place is super cute, the facilities are super clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you get there before check in time, you can leave your bag with them until your bed is assigned. They have lockers at the end of each room of you wish to leave your items of value. Recommended to bring your own luck and towel.

    Bourbon St Hostel Boutique made for a fantastic place to stay during our visit in Cartegena. The location is perfect if you want to be right in the middle of the Walled City. The rooms are filled with nice "pod style" beds, accompanied with a locker and 2 private bathrooms. The included breakfast wasn't anything special, but made for a hearty meal to fuel up with before exploring. The staff was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful when we had questions. Would stay again!

    This was one of the better hostels I’ve stayed in. Especially since they run the AC all the time and have hot water in the showers, neither of which seem to be common in Cartagena. The privacy shades for the beds are nice. Bathrooms were clean. Breakfast was decent (although you have to pay for it). Location is perfect if you want to be in the Old City.

    I was only here for one night but thought it lacked atmosphere. Ended up going to Mamalena to meet people! Pods are fantastic, feels like your own private room. Big lockers. Clean bathrooms. Great place if you need a good sleep!

    Hostel has a great location, but isn’t very social. AC was ice cold but very loud - put in noise cancelling headphones before sleeping! Bathrooms were clean and showers were nice.

    Very Good

    Loved the beds here (the shades are nice), as well as the location within the walled city. Staff were helpful when I had to run out for a tour and needed breakfast to go. Downside was that staff weren't very organized with arranging my tour, and generally gave pretty terrible directions to anywhere. (Vague, no landmarks or names). Travel fell during national holiday and they didn't seem to have any advice on how to navigate this. Would stay here again though, made a good base for the city

    Very Good

    Hostel was clean and beds were large and very private. Not much atmosphere at all, I shortened my stay by a night as there was nothing really going on. Staff on check in weren't particularly helpful or interested. Not a sociable atmosphere but good if you're just looking for a good night's sleep.
