    We had a great experience at Life is Good. The staff (especially Gustavo) was so helpful. He gave us restaurant recommendations, let us check in a bit early and even printed our boarding passes for us. Our room was very clean, the air conditioning was nice and cool and the breakfast was plenty filling. I would 10/10 stay here if I came back to Cartagena!

    Great Hostel, very clean, great facilities, staff were really friendly and helpful and great free breakfast. Pretty chilled vibe with a rooftop spa but no real bar but plenty of places near by. Would definitely stay here again.

    I have stayed in many hostels all over the world and I’ve got to say this is in my top three favorite now!! Miguel helped us coordinate our bus for the next morning and even though it was too early for breakfast time they packed us a breakfast and lunch to go!! No extra cost, they really just want you to have the best experience. Very clean, the breakfast that is included is absolutely amazing, best hostel breakfast hands down. Made me feel like I was in a fancy hotel. Would 100% stay again!!

    I’ve stayed in over 30 hostels on four different continents, and I have say with full confidence Life Is a Good hostel is the greatest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The rooms feel more like a hotel, they are nice, clean wood rooms with comfortable beds. The staff is the nicest I’ve ever met. They remembered it was my birthday and everyone said happy birthday to me. 10/10 can’t wait to visit Cartagena again and stay at this hostel, felt like a home away from home. Every guest said the same thing!

    Great hostel in a great location! The staff is so kind and friendly! They will go out if their way to get to know you and help you! Rooms are nice and the AC is a definite plus. Breakfast is great every morning and they always give you a number of options to choose from. WiFi works well all over and facilities are cleaned daily. They have a bar and jacuzzis on the roof, but not a big party scene here. Their tourism section next door is very helpful as well!

    This hostel is amazing. The staff are so friendly & helpful. The building itself if beautiful- more like a boutique hotel. The air con dorms are a life saver and the location is also great. It’s quite a chilled hostel so if you’re looking to meet people for a night out there might be better options but i would 100% recommend staying here. Also the 10 man dorm doesn’t feel like a big dorm because it’s kinda split into 2 rooms so it’s pretty spacious. Also Matthew is so attentive and great.

    I found bed bugs on my bed and when I told the front desk person he asked me if I killed them?! Once he realized his question was absurd he quickly upgraded me to another room. I ended up staying for the night since I was traveling all day and I was tired. It’s definitely not worth the money with a nonexistent atmosphere. The location is a plus but there are many other affordable hostels in that same area.
