    Stayed here for one night in a private room. The room was huge, spotless and had strong air con. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. Great WiFi. Good location close to Getsemani and old town. Afraid we really can’t comment on the social atmosphere as it was such a fleeting visit!

    We had a great stay here. We were greated so warmly. We had a long coach journey to get here and must have seemed very tired and stressed as the staff got us 2 beers straight away! The private room with ensuite was fantastic, the air con was great and it felt more like a hotel room than a hostel room. The breakfast was great as you could choose from different things and the outdoor area with jacuzzi was great to cool off after a day in the heat. The staff were so friendly and helpful

    Stayed in the private room with AC, so it was great! VERY clean room/bedding with VERY clean bathroom and towels. Nice area and secure. Friendly young man at the desk that was very attentive. Lovely lady serving breakfast that helped me find a specific gift! The only downside was the kitchen was outside and fairly unkept.

    Great location in Getsemani. Private room was amazing with own bathroom and it was very quiet. Staff that work there are lovely, however when I was there not many people staying to socialise with but can’t be helped. Courtyard is handy to sit outside when you can’t be bothered walking around in the heat of Cartagena! Stayed for 2 extra nights so would recommend.

    This is a lovely hostel with super friendly staff. We stayed in a private room with AC - well worth the money in Cartagena! The communal bathrooms were always clean and the outdoor showers nice at night! The kitchen felt dirty but the separate kitchen they cook breakfast in looked clean & the breakfast was good and had a few options. Good for getting washing done, and they’ll book your next bus for you!

    Located on a quiet street but really close to bars and restaurants. The rooms were really clean but hot tub was really dirty and the outdoor showers smelt like urine. There was no atmosphere whatsoever, I only briefly saw other guests at breakfast which was good. The front door was always locked throughout day making it slightly inconvenient to come and go. The WiFi and A/C were really good, private rooms were really good value and spacious.

    We found this place to be practical base for exploring Cartagena, great location and clean facilities. Not much in the way of atmosphere and we had an issue with our laundry not being done when we had asked for it specifically to be ready for the following morning as we were leaving, we came to find it hadn’t even been washed - the hostel had run out of detergent but failed to let us know, when they had our contact details and room number to inform us, so communication could have been better!

    A good basic hostel. Stayed for 1 night and left early, so missed breakfast. Spacious 10 bed dorm, nice bathrooms and patio area. WiFi was extremely fast! Staff could have been a little more welcoming. Front door is always locked and you have to wait for staff to let you in or out 24/7, which was annoying!

    No atmosphere at all, not for solo backpackers. But the breakfast is good and it’s a great location! Just one block from the main streets of Getsemani. The breakfast was also pretty good. But like I said definitely not for solo travelers or to meet people. Great quiet place if that’s what you’re looking for

    Our private twin bunk room got quite hot during the day and into the early evening because there was no AC or windows (there was a fan, thankfully). Lots of mosquitos in the room and much of the hostel felt like it had questionable cleanliness. The hostel was in a good location with respect to the Exito, Old City, Castillo de San Felipe, and the rest of Getsemani. Not the worst hostel, but not the best either.
