Property Description

The hostel is situated in a 400 year old house which is located in Getsemani, Cartagena, a few block away from Plaza de la Trinidad, Getsemani's main meet-up place. We are also easy walking distance to all of the centro historic sites. Our dorms are spacious, clean and each has its own bathroom. We also have additional enclosed showers and bathrooms. Also, we have a cool jacuzzi so you can cool off on those hot Cartagena days!

We delight in delighting our guests, and most who stay with us wind up extending for more days. We are family owned and operated and are accustomed to giving great personal service. Our mattresses are top quality and very comfortable and the privacy of our capsule style beds gives our guests a measure of privacy in their own space.

We are knowledgeable about the area's attractions, plus tours and activities, and can book many of them directly for you.

We have four great social areas: the patio and jacuzzi; the sundeck; the library and the air conditioned restaurant/workaway space.

We have great, fast WiFi throughout the hostel, plus you can ask Alexa to play your favorite music in our patio.

We hope you come and stay with us. We offer for free many amenities that other hostels charge for.

Hasta Pronto!

    A wonderful home in Cartagena! Little details really make the experience--fresh towel daily and coffee all day, and very present staff who are always around to answer questions or get to know you. A nice big breakfast is included and different every day. Great location in easy walking distance of the old walled city, docks, etc.

    If you're looking for something low key and relaxing, this is the place for you. We loved it here and stayed here several nights because it was quiet and the staff were so nice and helpful to us throughout our stay. The spaces are designed nicely and mindfully including the bedrooms (they are box bunks so it feels like you have your own private space even though it's a shared room). In addition, the breakfasts are different everyday and are so good that it feels like you're at a restaurant.

    This was a nice, clean place to stay and well situated in Getsemani. It’s probably best for couples/families/groups as the capsule set up means that it’s a little less social. The doorbell situation was less than ideal, however, as you could hear it in my room whenever anyone needed to be let inside.

    Good hostel, great varying breakfast. The dorms can feel claustrophobic at first but the curtain gives you actually a lot of provacy.

    great location, very pretty hostel and beds were super comfy with privacy curtain and individual plug and light for each bed. Big lockers per person and nice bathroom and showers. The kitchen wasn't the cleanest and is tiny so if you're cooking in just be aware of this! overall enjoyed our stay here a lot - is definitely more of a base for exploring Cartagena than somewhere to hang out all the time and meet lots of people.

    Cute hostel - comfy beds, ladders to bunks easier than they looked, breakfast is good but takes time, Larry who works there is very sweet and made us popcorn one night. Towel provided. Jacuzzi wasn't warm. Some of the lockers in the dorms are way up above the bunk beds which is weird - I'd hate to have to put my stuff up there. Didn't love that I had to ring a bell to get in at night - sometimes I waited 5-10 min. If more people stayed here, atmosphere would be better.

    My friend got her bag full of cloths (that was right next to her traveling bag) trow in the trash by one of the staff (she didn’t even looked in the bag to see what is in there,(have it on camera).The owners did little to nothing to resolve the problem saying how it was her fault because it wasn’t in the locker!So you better lock all of your cloths in the locker because otherwise they might go right in the trash!I’m socked by the unprofessional treatment that we got For something that they did!

    This hostel is clearly below average compared to all the other ones we used in Colombia. The "patio" - the place to chill out and have breakfast - is very small and contains a jacuzzi, showers & toilets (the latter two didn't even have real walls) : an interesting mix from a hygiene and sound point of view. One day breakfast was announced at 9.30am (already very late), and we received ours only at 10.30am ! Room was dirty and filthy; carpet tiles moved around; there were hairs in one of the beds
