    Great location! And I felt very safe. They always have the gate locked and check to make sure you are supposed to be there. They also have lockers in the dorm. Free breakfast was good but not a lot of food. AC only runs from 8pm-11am so leave by 11 bc it gets hot. Staff was very friendly and helpful. One negative though is that I had to constantly ask for soap for the bathroom. But overall a great value and would definitely stay there again!

    This is a basic hostel that is one of the cheapest in Cartagena. Some days it was cleaner than others but most of the time I had to ask for more soap and toilet paper. The location is amazing though - nearby Old City and in Getsemani. The wifi was good at times and terrible at others. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast is good (eggs, toast, fruit and juice). Kitchen is pretty well stocked but no spices or anything to use. Not a social hostel either but I don’t mind that so much.

    I recommend this hostel to others for the price and location. However I had some issues. The staff were mostly nice and helpful, except when the air conditioning stopped working at night and upon reporting it, was given a lecture in English and Spanish about how I should not unplug it... at 1:30am in a room full of people sleeping (I obviously did not do it). Facilities are basic but comfortable but need soap in the bathrooms. The floor gets wet and slippery which is a hazard.

    Do not stay here. The only thing it has going for it is its location and you can get a much nicer place in the same location. The wifi was non existent. The dorms door and lockers were broken and were crawling with bugs. The bathrooms were disgusting, had no toilet paper, shower heads or soap. Bugs everywhere. There was a scary looking dog kept in a kennel all day outside the dorm that barked when you used the bathroom. Staff were rude and breakfast was basic. Not even worth the cheap price.

    dorms were very tiny, there were only two bathrooms upstairs and they were a disaster because they work for 40 people.
