    What an amazing experience we had. The location was prime, yet the street was still quiet. We were walking distance to everything. The staff was incredible- very personable, friendly and truly did go above and beyond.

    Of all the hostels i stayed in Cartagena, this one was by far the best! The facilities are extremely clean, the dorm beds are so comfortable and the service by the staff can not be matched by anywhere else. Thankyou so much Jose and George for looking after me, next time i’m back this is where i’ll definately be staying!

    This is a beautiful hostel with a beautiful rooftop to relax on and strong air con in the dorm rooms. But the real gem of the place are the people working here! Miguel, Matthieu, Oscar, and everyone else went out of their way to make my stay in Cartagena wonderful. Every morning they greeted me by name, it felt like home! They also arranged a cooking class for me on a day that they had not planned on having one and had someone there to translate. I recommend this hostel (and the cooking class!)

    Very good location if you don't want to stay in the historic centre. Lots of restaurants around. Breakfast is restaurant quality. Beautiful rooftop terrace with pool. Rooms are very clean with some privacy. Staff is very friendly. A little expensive but that's Cartagena for you.

    Clean and very comfortable place to stay with biggish dorm beds, black out curtains and AC. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooftop space is well kept with nice furniture. Breakfast is good with numerous options. Would be nice if there was a vegan option for breakfast or if you could swap eggs for double the fruit. Definitely would recommend this hostel to other travellers.

    The staff here was amazing and very friendly, rooms were clean and well kept and the area on the rooftop was nice. However the food at the restaurant was delicious but would take a very long time to get to us, also we never received our 15% discount on any of the meals. The last night we were there they had a power outage due to construction and the AC went out so our room was too hot to handle so we were happy to get a hotel afterwards. Would recommend but would book a private room next time.

    This is a very tranquil hostel. I went with a friend but I could tell that solo travelers where having trouble engaging in conversation with others. It is a very small hostel and has no proper “social” besides their restaurant. I think it is perfect for the people who just want to chill and are not interested in being social. The rooms are spacious and smell great a plus for that, but anyone basically can come in the room as there are no keys for the room.
