    Great hostel in the beautiful Getsemani district, walking distance to the main square/old city walls. Cool bars/restaurants/cafes on the same street! About a 30min walk to Bocagrande Beach. Staff were really helpful with advice around good beaches, island day trips and sunset spots. Modern amenities, air con in the bedrooms, good WiFi and cool outdoor area with spa which was nice for relaxing/socializing. Breakfast included too!!! Highly recommend, thanks for the stay!

    Got a dorm for a quick stop over in Cartagena. The 10bed dorm is spacious and clean. The bunks are sturdy and the facilities are fantastic. There's a small private toilet and shower or there's the larger shared bathrooms in the courtyard. The shared showers are outdoor booths -completely private- but you can see the stars as you shower. Breakfast is included and there's a nice outdoor space with hot tub for detant The staff are also very friendly and helpful.

    Great place and value for money, hangout area in the back is cozy. They take reviews seriously, a lot of the issues mentioned in earlier reviews have been fixed - beds have privacy curtains, showers have an entry stall and hangers to put your stuff, more trash bins, and the staff were super friendly and helpful. Rooms have lots of beds, could be noisy depending on your roommates, but the curtains do help. Would recommend!

    Location is perfect and the staff is really helpful and very friendly. We stayed in a private room which was amazing, best bed we had in entire Colombia. The dorms looked very good as well. The free breakfast is simple but good! The atmosphere could be better however I think they are currently building a bar which will help as well it will be busier when the high season will start. Would definitely recommend staying here :)

    I highly enjoyed my stay here. All staff were friendly and helpful. Front desk staff spoke English and Spanish well. We had a private room near the entrance to the hostel and found it clean, AC working great, and good showers/plumbing. Next time I’m in Cartagena I would definitely stay here again.

    We had an unusual stay at Espiritu mainly because the building was undergoing renovation. The staff - and cat - were incredibly friendly and helpful with everything, including storing our bags overnight when we went island hopping. We had asked for a double private and ended up staying in an entire dorm room to ourselves due to the renovation. The breakfast was a bit plain, but nice. The location is excellent - close to a few craft beer bars and an amazing tapas restaurant.

    Great location directly between Castillo de San Felipe and Old Town. Getsemani is a great place to check out too. The only problems we had were that they only ran their AC from 7 PM to 8 AM and for Cartagena in May it was way too hot. The lockers they had only really could hold your most valuable stuff, not all your stuff if that’s important to you. Jacuzzi is kinda gross. Overall a good place.

    Pretty good hostel, rooms are big and beds are comfortable. They turn the air con off for the whole day though so it’s super hot in the rooms. Location is close to everything and outside showers are nice.

    Pro: Great location for the hostel, breakfast included. Con: We ended up getting room 6 which was a dorm with bunk beds that was next to the outdoor common area and the frustrating bird sounds pierce your ears in the early morning. The bed is uncomfortable, the room is noisy with people coming in and leaving every hour. Additionally, there was no consideration for people sleeping in the early morning and would disrupt us with noises between 3-8am. One of the worst sleep and accommodation so far.
