    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.

    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.

    We stayed here for one night with plans to go to Isla Grande the next morning, staff were super helpful and organised a transfer for us to the island, including a taxi to the port. The location was great, within walking distance to bars/restaurants within the old town. The decor inside is fresh. The room was clean, beds were comfy and the towels in the room were a nice touch. We had no toilet paper in the bathroom upon arrival, and the breakfast was just ok. However, overall still a great stay

    Fantastic location. Our room faced out onto a very noisy road, other privates have no windows. Good AC and nice balcony in room. Helpful staff for booking tours. Good WiFi decent breakfast. Poor shower - cold with minimal water pressure. Didn't meet many other travellers but would recommend for central location

    Claustrophobic, windowless cell of a room. Booked for 3 nights stayed one The last place you’d want to stay in a blisteringly hot and humid city like Cartagena. Plenty better to be had
