    Overall the hostel is really nice and the breakfast is AMAZING (it's not included in the price but totally worth it). The facilities need a bit of improvement. There should be space in the room for the luggage (a locker under the bed or something), my dorm was small and everyone's luggage was just on the floor. The bathrooms are good, but the showers could have some hooks for your stuff when you shower, same as the toilet stalls. Minor things that would make it an amazing hostel.

    Best WiFi in any hostel in Colombia. Didn’t try pool but would have if stayed longer. Rooms are maybe too cold but that’s quite nice as Cartegena is boiling. Showers are great as are toilets. Shower was luke warm which was best it got in Colombia. Music was too loud from the bar. No point in creating an atmosphere when there were better places to go so those there are trying to sleep. Also slightly dangerous climbing up to top bunk in mixed dorm. Sheets weren’t brilliantly clean.

    Booked a 4 bed dorm but was upgrade to a private room for our first night which was great. Pool was nice but area for sun beds and lounges would have been nice. Bathrooms were clean but sheets did look a little bit dirty. Only problem was there was no private area in the bathrooms to get changed after a shower as the shower cubicles were quite small and the space outside the showers was open to hallways. Otherwise location was great and would recommend.

    Hostel is in a good location if you want to be slightly out of the craziness of the streets of Cartagena! Only a 5 min walk away so quieter. Staff nice and really helpful and the free breakfast is a great addition. It is also very clean and good air con. It is not the most social or liveliest so maybe not great if you intend to meet lots of people or party.

    Very Good

    Overall, an okay stay. Good location, close to walled city. We were in a private room with no windows. All a bit shabby and dirty looking particularly shared bathrooms and pool (when a floating used condom was found it was removed but the pool wasnt then cleaned). Breakfast was very good, with big portion sizes!
