    Pros: Amazing locatio in the walled city, super safe. AC! Great staff! Nice, and kept the place super clean. Free breakfast of some fruit and eggs. Great outdoor pool in a courtyard. Free storage for your bags in a locked room once you check out! Medium size lockers in the dorm if you have your own locks. Cons: No towel/soap/shampoo; the motion sensor lights in the showers shut off all the time when showering, which sucks; dorm door isn't locked; loud on the rooftop til midnight. Loved it!!!

    Okay so my partner and I loved this hostel and that is mainly due to the privacy and comfort of the dorm rooms. The pods are super private, spacey and comfortable. These are up there with the best dorms I have stayed in during my 6 months in South America. Aircon is also great and a must in cartegana. Hostel is trendy and has a cool vibe. Amazing location in the heart of old town. Restaurant is a little exy but plenty of food around and a kitchen if you want cheaper options.

    A pretty great place, especially with the big pods with curtains in the dorms. Perfect location and nice to have a pool. As others have mentioned though the staff have a bad attitude. We were told we weren't allowed to drink a soft drink we had bought in the common eating area. The place was empty apart from one other guy... Staff are telling guests different things about whether the tap water is safe to drink or not, generally unfriendly vibe. Minor things. We had a good time though.

    Staff weren’t helpful when there was building work which meant I was unable to sleep for a whole 24 hours. I messaged the manager about this issue three days ago as I was advised and I’m still waiting for even an acknowledgement let alone a response. This was not as sociable a hostel as others I’ve stayed in. The beds and rooms were nice. The breakfast was decent

    Beautiful venue, comfy rooms, and cute furnishings, but the staff were rude, unwelcoming and unhelpful (something every other person staying there during my time commented on). It also wasn’t a very social hostel as there aren’t many comfy common areas for people to gather. Lots of potential, but my experience was really dampened by the staff and bad vibes.

    This place is cute and very instagrammable, but not conducive to meeting new folks. The rooftop bar only has small two-seat tables and doesn't open until after 5, and the downstairs restaurant tables are seated far apart. It's like a hostel for people who are scared of hostels. No events or social activities from what I gathered, and pretty expensive (though the location is lovely). My bunk was nice and comfortable, but the shower clogged almost immediately every time it was used.

    Great location and pretty hostel. However, the staff were quite uninterested in helping - seemed rude at times. We stayed in the large dorm. The pods were really great and spacious, but the dorm only had 2 bathrooms for 18 people (and there is one common bathroom in the entire hostel). The dorm didn’t lock and with a constant open door and not that attentive staff it sometimes felt a bit unsafe. The free breakfast included is nothing to write home about….
