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!

    Our stay at the hostel was amazing. Both Larry and his family were of great help; They helped us find activities to do and cheap local food. In addition, they were beyond accomodating. All the comments regarding breakfast are true; The best breakfast I've had in Colombia.

    Great hostel, breakfast is AMAZING. Beds were really comfy and the privacy of the little capsules was nice. I only stayed two nights but met some nice people (the breakfast area makes meeting people very easy). After 5 days on a boat from Panama, it was a perfect place to relax and explore Cartagena. Also it was very close to both the marina and all the action, which meant I could walk everywhere easily.

    Great hostel!! Right in Getsemani and close to the main things in the city. Very clean, comfy beds and a great atmosphere. Larry and his family are running the hostel and all of them are so nice!! Larry knows everything about this city and gives you really good recommendations. The breakfast is the BEST breakfast I've ever had in a hostel, they put so much love in this, it's really amazing. Everyday something different and all SO good! I can't wait to come back to this place :)

    The owner is amazing person. He knows the city so well, that can hive tiny details about every corner. His recommendations were just great. Every day he prepared a different breakfast and those have been the best I have ever had in a hostel. Also, the privcacy provided by sleeping in capsules is very valuable. Highly recommended.

    Larry was very helpful with local logistics and knowledge and is a native English speaker. Air-con was very good in the bedrooms, foyer and the Mexican restaurant. 3rd tier of the beds may be a bit warm for some. Social area is open-air so the odd mozzie around. Mexican restaurant was very nice food and good value; decent breakfast as well! Overall, a relaxed atmosphere. No organised events/parties but a good place to stay if you want a bit of peace after the Cartagena heat/Street vendors!

    Great little hostel. The owner and the other staff were all great. Super helpful and welcoming. The hostel itself is a nice unique place. He’s upgrading a lot of stuff right now so it will be even better. Location is nice within walking distance of almost everything. Thanks for the good place.
