    Great location is Getsemani. Cold showers, but in the heat/humidity or CTG, hot water was NOT necessary. Has filtered water and AC. Although power went out for 6-8 hours one morning. It's normal in this part of the city, but if it lasted longer than the morning, it would've been too hot to sleep and no way to charge phone. Super friendly staff. Overall would recommend

    Good: The staff truly makes this place. Cristian is a gem and he went beyond to help us with absolutely everything we needed and gave us great prices for tours around the city and Islas del Rosario. Paola at the front desk is lovely and incredibly helpful as well. The location is perfect for anybody that wants to have the full walled city experience. Bad: I stayed at a private room (probably the cheapest you can find at a hostal in Cartagena) and the walls were extremely dirty so they can really use some

    This was my first time staying at a hostel but please read: It's in a great part of Cartagena and walking distance to anything you want to do in the walled city or down the street in the church square (buzzing with people every night and street food vendors, highly recommend the corner store for beer its very cheap). Only thing I wish it had was water in the jacuzzi and a better way to display the events it was putting on, I ended up at another hostel in the evenings to meet people and party.

    Lovely hostel with a resident tortoise! Loud at night which wasn’t to our liking. Unfortunately the electric went out every day for about 4 hours and the fridge didn’t work even when the electric was on. We asked about this and basically got shrug of shoulders and told to use the freezer instead… but this was also warm. Room was lovely and would still recommend but we had to throw out food everyday which isn’t ideal.

    This hostel is in a very convenient location. The air conditioning in the rooms is key. My only complaint is that it is very loud due to the street noise and the music in the lobby. Great if you're into partying, though!

    Nothing works at this place!! Refrigerator, chimney, fans, room hangers, curtains, literally everything was broken. This hostel is in a great location, which is why it attracts tourists. We complained about the broken stuff and since they could not shift us to a different room, they refund 25% of our total amount. But still, i would not book it again. The only good thing was the air conditioner in the room, which was badly needed in Cartagena heat.

    Location is the best thing about this hostel, its very close to bars and restaurants in Getsemani and a quick walk to the historic town. Facilities aren't great, e.g. no forks in the kitchen, no water in the hot tub, quite dirty. Found it difficult to get information about what to do in Cartagena. Felt expensive for what it was, but think that's normal for Cartagena!

    Had to vote low for all items as there is no option to vote the costumer service from upper management. We were out of electricity (AC) in a room with no window (hence no breathable air), deadly for the city's humid and hot weather . We asked to be moved to a room with a window the coming morning. Since without electricity nor wifi, we were made to wait there for the room, assured was blocked for us. At the time of checking in, suddenly "the system" had it booked elsewhere! Waste! Found cockroac
