    Stayed at Life is Good for 3 nights and was blown away with their service. Everyone was extremely attentive and receptive to questions. Staff was friendly, accommodating, and most of all, concerned with the well being of all during this time of uncertainty. I had to leave early due to the Coronavirus outbreaks but would have loved to spend more time here!

    Very nice, clean and perfectly located. Given these troublesome times (COVID-19), the staff were very understanding and could not have been more helpful. If I am ever back in Cartagena, there is no doubt where I will stay.

    Absolutely OUTSTANDING experience at this hostel. Incredible service, best I have ever experienced in any hostel and I’ve been travelling for a while! Brilliant staff who remember all individuals names, very nice dorms and breakfast included. Staff members stand out as fantastic members of staff - my friend and I had a nightmare with trying to get back home due to coronavirus and they both went out of their way to do everything they could to help us - could not be happier with the service!

    This was such a fantastic hostel. My husband and I stayed here for two nights but seriously wish we would have stayed longer. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, food in the restaurant is amazing (get the carbonara pasta!!) Miguel and Michael were the two we dealt the most with and they’re awesome. Highly recommend!

    Staff are absolutely incredible at this hostel. Literally everyone from the managers, those on reception to the restaurant staff and cleaners were amazing. Can be a bit of a challenge to meet people here if solo but the roof terrace and nearby walking tours help. Slightly more of a hotel vibe. Only suggestion for improvement was more vegetarian options on the restaurant menu. Thanks again all!

    I really enjoyed staying at Life is Good, and the staff here are really great. On my second day, my phone fell into the jacuzzi, and the man at the front desk spent several hours trying to help me. He tried everything to fix my phone, he watched videos of how to fix, and even asked the kitchen staff for a bag of rice to dry my phone. I don't remember his name but he was incredibly kind and helpful. Thank you to all who helped me while I was there. The rooms are comfortable too. Overall great!!

    This hostel has more of a hotel feel. Definitely a chill vibe and not a party hostel by any means. That being said, I had no problem meeting other travelers. The accommodations are very clean, secure, and in a great location. What really makes this place shine though is the staff. They are absolutely stellar! I adored Wendy, Matthew, and Diana. They are seriously the nicest people ever and each one of them goes out of their way to ensure you have the best stay possible.

    The 4-bed dorm I stayed in was a little small and the road is very noisy, but otherwise the hostel was great. The facilities are excellent, the free breakfast was always tasty, and the staff are all very friendly and helpful - especially Wendy, who was a ray of sunshine every morning!

    We had a good stay here. The location is convenient to exploring the historic city center. The staff were pretty helpful, especially around breakfast time. There weren’t many books/games for a low-key rest day. There wasn’t much common space for mingling with other guests. There also weren’t many resources for recommendations on restaurants, cafes, bars, activities so we ended up wandering around a lot. The rooftop is great for happy hour.
