    This is the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. The sense of community was fantastic. The price may seem a tad higher than others, but the beds, kitchen, staff, amenities and other perks MORE than made up for it. The beds are built in solidly to the wall, so you can come and go as you please and never disturb anyone. Kitchen was great. Staff was fantastic and always extremely helpful. Location was great. And you get 1/2 off discounts to a fantastic restaurant just by staying there. A+++

Very nice helpful people, food was great upstairs in the restaurant at night and super cheap with the discount of the hostel, rooms were amazing and super private and from where we were you could get around pretty well ! Really nothing bad to say about the place ! 😊

    Nice little hostel. Wonderful location in a nice part of the old city. Very clean with excellent bed privacy with the blackout curtains. plenty of hot water for showers. Staff (Camilo) did a good job of getting a bunch of solo travelers together for a night out.

    Amazing and very private shared room with plenty of space and blackout curtains. Would recommend if you want a bit of calm and a good night's sleep and to shower in a nice, private and fully equipped bathroom.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in terms of quality. The beds have an individual blackout and some space for your stuff. The AC is always working strong, which is a must in Cartagena. The three bad things: the hostel was not so propicious to meet new people. Besides, their breakfast is not for free, although, when I searched here, I put the free breakfast filter. And one day they woke me up thinking I was someone else, which is a bit of disorganization.

    I like the most the AC, the beds and the design of the hostel. Moreover, it’s in a very good location. I’ve been to three hostels in Cartagena. I think in cleanness bourbon is the best, but for the atmosphere I dont think so. Overall I enjoyed my stay, thanks to the staff Pedro and Camili.

    The pics of this property are WILDY different than in person. They either haven't updated their images in a very long time, or just did some incredible Photoshop work. For example, the pictures show beautiful hardwood floors, a clean plunge pool, and nice ambiance. In person it's all dirty looking tile, a gross pond-looking box of water, and bleak lighting. The sleeping situation doesn't allow any room to put your luggage comfortably. Great for very low-maintenance, low expectation backpackers.

    These folks didn't have the room advertised in the website site. Not being able to honor their booking, they allowed us to keep the bags at the lobby and were rather helpful, but the fact remains that a cash transaction might have gotten our room rented internally, as it happens often in these places.
