    This hostel is more like a hotel. The staff is helpful and attentive, they even let me check in an hour early and upgraded my room. Very clean, comfortable beds, AC is very good and lockers are spacious. Don’t forget to bring your own lock! Would recommend this to anyone coming to Cartagena!

    I couldn't rate this hostel more highly. The most wonderful, helpful and welcoming staff that make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. Thank you for taking the time to help me with my spanish. The hostel is super clean with a great breakfast and friendly atmosphere - you always end up meeting other travellers on the terrace and in your room, so i found it great as a solo traveller. Well located for everything Cartagena has to offer!

    A really great, more relaxed option in Cartagena. If you aren't necessarily looking to party, but rather explore the city and general area, then this hostel will be perfect. The staff are great and very knowledgeable and having a little chilled dining area with air conditioning was great. Rooftop also very recommended.

    Fantastic hostel -- great atmosphere, great location, great facilities. Best staff I have encountered at any hostel I've stayed at. Only nit was the bathrooms -- it looked like some stuff had collected at the corners of the showers and the bath mat needed washing. Even so it was still cleaner than most hostel bathrooms.

    This was my first time staying in a hostel, so I was a bit nervous. I found the place to be really great. The workers very friendly and always helpful, and the breakfast was fantastic. The only thing that disappointed me was the fact that I was not able to find the time to take the cooking class. I guess I am just going to have to stay here again.

    Wow! This is the nicest hostel I’ve ever stayed in! Almost like a hotel. Friendly staff, clean facilities, tasty breakfast, great AC and showers, and sweet rooftop area. Overall great location too. Would definitely recommend staying here if you’re traveling for work or don’t want to pay hotel prices yet want a quality place to stay.

    More like a hotel than a hostel. Super clean. Very professional staff. I think it’s a bit more expensive than some of the other hostels, but the quality is great.

    I had a great time! The staff are the highlight, because they seem to truly care about the guests. They will go out of their way to ensure their guests are comfortable, and of course the amenities are great. The only downsides are that the showers weren't actually warm (although advertised to be) and the hostel itself doesn't have a social vibe at all. But great for relaxation and recuperation!
