    Life is good at life is good! The hostel is so clean, the rooftop view is beautiful and the staff are incredibly friendly and I felt so welcome and comfortable as soon as I walked in. I also recommend taking the cooking class run by the chef there. It was so much fun!

    The staff are very welcoming. They gave great recommendations on where to eat and what places were good to visit. I only had a small amount of time but I feel like I was able to see everything I wanted to. Breakfast was amazing.

    Super clean hostel with amazing staff in a great location. Breakfast is also fantastic as are the rooms with AC and comfy, private beds. We read reviews saying it can be hard to meet people here but we might other very nice guests we spent time with. Nothing negative for us! :)

    Really an amazing hostel with great location. Stagg is amazing, breakfast is so good and they change it so you get to try different Colombian specialties. The bed was probably the best one I’ve had in a dorm so far. Aircon worked perfectly fine. More like a hotel vibe than a hostel but people were very nice and outgoing in the dorm so would still say it’s very social. Easy to meet people in the pool at the rooftop too. Loved this place and highly recommend!

    I really enjoyed my stay and made great friends with the staff. I see why people love the staff there because they were really awesome and made my stay in Cartagena. I enjoyed the cooking class and was blown away by the private room on my last night. I advise Everyone to purchase room with ac cause you will die in Cartagena without it! 🤣

    It is a hotel with bunk beds, but still very fun! The staff is really friendly and the cook makes great dishes. You can walk to the city center and to Getsemani very easily. It is a little pricey tho aaaaand they have TWO jaccuzis on the rooftop. Really cool.

    A little more expensive than other hostels but so worth it for a few days… The beds are comfortable and have curtains. Good shower. 3 different options for breakfast each morning. Free towels. Water foundation and free coffee (and cake/ biscuits some days). The staff are lovely too. I was big fan of the roof top- it has a jacuzzis. This hostel was a perfect place to chill after a few days of partying in other hostels

    Great location, very good air-conditioning in rooms, breakfast is amazing and kind of makes the more expensive price of the hostel worth it. Wifi is good all over even in the roof top. The only thing lacking is a decent chill out area as it rains alot and when the rooftop is not useable there is no where to socialise which kills the vibe of the whole place.

    The hostel is very clean, the breakfast area and rooftop are great . The breakfast was also really good! The main con would be the room. The 4-person room is very small, with only bunk beds and lockers and no table or bedside tables. Makes talking to the roommates uncomfortable as there is very little room to stand and chat. Also, rooms facing the inner patio make it hard to sleep past 7am as you hear everything from downstairs. Also, people kept to themselves a lot and no one was hanging out.

    Warning this hostel has bed bugs! My friend was bitten to shreds on our first night. We were subsequently moved rooms but are not convinced this solved the problem. We were also made to pay to wash our clothes which seemed ridiculous seeing as it was their issue. I do not recommend this hostel.
