    Outstanding! Our room was perfectly clean, super comfortable & the AC worked great! The breakfast was delicious & they even offer different options every day. Relaxing on the beautiful rooftop also made our stay more memorable. & last but not least - Staff was brilliant! Miguel did everything he could to make our stay as pleasant as possible - i.e. organized breakfast for us even though we had to leave at 4 in the morning! Similar to the rest, everyone always was in a good mood & super helpful.

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in worldwide. I’ve stayed 3 times and won’t look anywhere else in Cartagena. Just outside the super touristy walled city, this neighborhood has much more character for a much smaller price. The staff is amazing (shout out Gustavo) and there is always cold beer and hot coffee waiting

    Absolutely fantastic place. This one is one of my favorite hostels in the world. The staff is excellent and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and taken care of. They facilitate everything you need, from tours, laundry, taxi's, etc... The food is authentic and delicious, and the rooftop is cool for drinks and sunset. Gracias Diana, Matthew, Miguel y Jose! Gracias a las buenísimas chefs por la rica comida y a todas las que mantienen un alto nivel de limpieza.

    Loved my stay! A secure and clean hostel with a low key vibe. It is beautiful, well maintained and the beds give you privacy with your own outlet and light. The AC works and can get frigid. Breakfast included and made to order! The staff were kind and patient. Both José and Mathew went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed their time in the city. Not a party hostel and you will have to be outgoing if traveling alone. Seemed most had their own group of travelers. Terrace is great too!

    The best is hostel we have been so far! Its really nice, spacious, very clean and the staff is super friendly. Free breakfast, water, tea and coffee every day. And you get 15% discount on any other food you order. The rooftop is nice to hang out. The beds are nice and you have your own light, charging spot and curtains. Would totally recommend this hostel :).

    Loved the staff. They were helpful and always ready to answer questions. We booked a Chiva tour one night through them, had a blast. The location is in the Getsamani neighborhood right outside of the walled city. It is a fun neighborhood. Staying here forced us to explore an area of Cartagena we might have otherwise neglected - which to us is always a good thing. Great breakfast of the day! Only complaint was no hot water, but with how hot Cartagena is, it was never too bad.

    I had a great stay here. The front desk staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. My bed was comfortable with a ledge to keep some of my stuff, power outlet, individual light and a curtain for privacy. Be sure to bring your own lock for the lockers they provide. The location is great. It is near many cool places and a short walk to the walled city. I would stay here again! One tip- don't do the airport transfer. They over-charge you. The cab ride from the airport should be $15,000 pesos.

    Great place to stay whilst in Cartegena. Friendly helpful staff, comfortable rooms, great hot showers and quiet at night allowing you to get a good night's sleep. Efficient laundry service, good breakfast and a restaurant that served tasty food; nothing to not like really. Would definitely stay again if in the area. I would recommend this hostel.
