    I absolutely loved this hostel. The privacy screen was great. The atmosphere was super. And the location is superb!!! Staff are helpful and nice. I booked a tour through them. I had taken an Uber from the airport to get here, but the staff called a cab to take me back a few days later and it turned out to be cheaper than Uber!!

    The staff generally young, sociable, and really made an effort to make my stay more enjoyable. A few even went out with us some nights. The pool, though small, was a huge plus in the heat. The cubicle-style beds with privacy blinds and outlets were a godsend. There is a tradeoff in location being in the heart of the historic district in that you need to walk a bit (about 15 minutes) to get to Getsemani and most of the nightlife. There are other bars within walking distance, though.

    Nice hostel, great location, good facilities and friendly staff. My only comment would be to ditch the sensor light / have way dimmer lights and maybe set the AC to a less aggressive mode at night as it was quite loud. I really like the concept of the blinds to each bed. Would stay again.

    Location is great and the staff are extremely helpful. They’ll assist transportation, plans in Cartagena, and give you advice for things to do all around the country. Also the 50% deals at the bourbon restaurant are a huge perk for some cheap, convenient and good food. The WiFi was pretty slow and unreliable and presented a challenge at times.

    Best bed I’ve had in months. Beds are spacious with plugs, a light and a privacy blind. Breakfast was great. Was a tad put off that there isn’t doors to the dorms, and there weren’t enough bathrooms for the number of guests. Wifi very slow and could rarely get a signal in the dorm. Overall very clean and comfortable.

    Cartagena is a cross between Bogota, Las Vegas and Disney Land. That being said, Bourbon St fits right in. The location is centrally located in the old city, so do expect to be absolutely mobbed by beggars, hawkers, drug dealers, and prostitutes immediately after leaving the hostel's door. And it never lets up. That being said, Bourbon St is an excellent hostel and you should visit Cartagena, but do yourself a favor and only stay 2 nights.

    Great staff, Octavio was a great guy and really helpful. Good location in the walled city but would actually recommend staying In Getsemani instead - better atmosphere, more space and cheaper plus it’s only a short 5-10 min walk to the walled city. Not “proper” capsules as the lockers are small and away from the beds. You can’t fit a big rucksack in them so you have to keep your rucksack in a The bed with you. I didn’t find this a problem. Front gate doesn’t lock and security only at night.

    The highlight were the staff, they were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was also great! The location is a little draining, Id prefer to be just outside the Centro. The atmosphere is much more for people on 1 week holidays than longer 'backpacking' trips, so it didn't suit us as much. Overall, an 'OK' hostel.

    PARTY HOSTEL ALERT! Front dorm is noisy (nightclub above) & humid (could feel the sheets humidity on my skin in a sec). Slept 5-6 hours in total for 2 nights. I asked to be changed dorm (I saw some free beds) in the early evening but the owner told the receptionist that it was impossible since the cleaning staff were gone for the day (while he was sitting his ass in the pool, pretty drunk...). Other than that: place is very clean and has amazing showers, Enrique (reception) is just AMAZING!
