    The location of Hostel 1811 is absolutely ideal. Very close proximity to both the walled city and Getsemani! The street out front is quite busy, but I couldn't hear anything from my room. The staff was friendly and welcoming.

    Exactly what I wanted — a quiet room to myself for a reasonable price (sans windows but with perfectly functioning AC/facilities). Appreciate that the place itself is not a party environment but situated in a busy area where the action is just down the street if you wanted to partake. The staff were always very patient with my terrible español and helped make sure I got to the airport and took advantage of the cool roof and breakfast that they had to offer. Muchas gracias!

    The pictures don't do this hostel justice. The room was beautiful and had a lovely balcony to sit on in the evening. The breakfast was tasty and served directly at my table. This was not a party hostel which made it even better for us. If I ever return to Cartagena, I would stay here again.

    Good place close to everything. I had rooftop 4 bed dorm but the internet on the roof is not so good. If in lobby level the internet is fine. Not many people staying in thos hostel during my time. The 4 bed dorm room is not ensuite bathroom but actually shared to note.

    The hostel was clean and quiet. There weren’t a lot of people staying there but it was conveniently located in a great spot downtown. The free breakfast was great. Only complaint is that they advertise AC but then make you pay more for it upon check-in. This should be advertised in the price upfront, rather than be a hidden cost that you learn about on arrival.

    I liked the location of the hostel, not inside the fortified city but a walking distance. Close to night-life and castillo San Felipe. I think the breakfast area was kind of small. Some times we had to wait to get sited.

    The staff made my first solo trip and hostel experience bearable. They were very pleasant, patient, kind and helpful...breakfast was delicious, but it was the same every day. The kitchen lady was super sweet. The Female dorm room was extremely hot. There were 3 fans and we opened the windows, but it was still uncomfortably hot. This place really needs a pool.

    It was all OK, and the location is great. Friendly staff. However, a single room with no windows and poor shower (just drizzling) is not what you expect.

    I chose this hotel because of the private rooms. Good location between the old city and getsemani. But there was no AC, no pool etc and it was roasting in Cartagena! No atmosphere because there really were no other trackers there. Generally clean and tidy though
