    Wow, what an amazing stay. Upon arrival we couldn’t believe the building was even a hostel and were happily surprised when we discovered it was. Once entering we were greeted with a smile by a pleasant young lady and given all the necessary information to navigate the area and sorrounding spots. Manuel and Hennessy were a dream and had us chatting and laughing all morning with a delicious breakfast! Overall our stay was great and we recommend this hostel to everyone looking for a good stay!

    Really cool setting and really nice staff - very helpful and kind. We stayed in a double bedroom just across the courtyard, the room was spacious and had air con. There's also a cute bar just in front of the rooms with drinks and food, but doesn't close too late so won't disturb you

    The house itself and the beds which were really big and had curtains were really nice but the strange thing about the hostel was that there were absolutely no people beside me and my friend. Also the Location wasn’t the best but it was okay to walk into the city center

    Building is wonderful, good breakfast. The ‘private’ room we were given wasn’t private as the walls did not meet the ceiling therefore any light or noise from the other rooms could be seen and heard. The air conditioning unit was also shared between these three rooms and had to be requested to turn on - awkward when you’re not sure whether your neighbours want it on or not and that you have to go back and forth if you want it on only for a short time. Completely impractical. Cleanliness good

    I booked two beds in a shared room but when we arrived notice they were matresses into wooden cubicles. The air conditioners had to cover a very great area, so first i thought was that the cubicles would became very hot to sleep, a kind of tiny sauna. There no were security lockers. The staff kindly offered to keep our belongings in a safe place but i prefered to move to a private room. The only available was for 4 people. It was really basic. It did not worth the 50 dollars we paid.

    there is virtually no hostel atmosphere, no 24h reception, which means you always have to look around for the staff. you are not able to control your own AC (always have to find the staff), if you come back you need to ring in order to get someone to open the door. if you’re late (12am in our case) you may need to wait some time as they first need to get up. no one speaks english. our room was dirty, after telling them, still no one would clean it. same for the bathroom. unfriendly staff too.

    INFESTED WITH BEDBUGS. Didn't sleep for the whole night, asked for a refund because I change 3 times my room and it was the same problem in each one. Nothing had been done and when I asked to get the owner number they wouldn't give it to me even if I had proves (videos and photos for the 3 rooms). On simple words : nightmare in Cartagena.
