Property Description

The hostel is located in the heart of Getsemaní, one of the most popular neighbourhoods for travellers, just a few meters from the majority of the tourist attractions, 10’ from the airport and a short walk from the beach. We have different areas to chill and hang out with other travellers, such as a hammock area, TV room, a complete kitchen for our guests or a rooftop bar where you can rest after a busy day visiting our beautiful city. We are also available to assist you and organize any kind of activity you are interested in, we have many around Cartagena and all are worth it!

Because we are also travellers and we know how much you love a GOOD BREAKFAST, we focus on having the best breakfast in all Cartagena and we think we did it well!! Como to delight our delicious BUFFET BREAKFAST and enjoy as much as you want of our variety of fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, cereals, colombian coffee, natural juice, toasts… we promise you’ll love it!


The house is one of the most historic in the neighborhood with renovated installations and offers good service. We have private and shared rooms with cable TV and bathroom inside, which is an added bonus for the comfort of our guests. And yes, we know our bathrooms are small (due to the charming antiquity of the infrastructure) but we still think we prefer a bathroom inside instead of going out to find one in the middle of the night :)

Marlin Hostel is the ideal place for travelers who want to truly explore Cartagena de Indias. You will enjoy an excellent location for any kind of activity you’d like to partake in. It’s a friendly, warm and interesting ambiance where you’ll meet people from all over the world and be able to share and hear travel stories, learn languages, make friends and grab some drinks while the laughter and good vibes permeate throughout the common areas

    We booked a private room here because we filtered on Air Conditioning but the rooms don’t have AC. They moved us to a linked property around the corner which was lovely and has AC though so we were still really happy.

    Marlin hostel is in the perfect location just outside the old town. The rooms are small but that is because it is built in an old colonial style house. Our room did not have air con, just a ceiling fan, and so we struggled with the heat a little bit during the night. The cold shower in the morning helped (we were unable to get hot water in our shower). The staff were really friendly and helpful, and stored our bags after check out. The free breakfast was nice.

    We enjoyed our stay at Marlin, it’s in a great location close to bars, restaurants and the historic old town. The British guy (sorry we didn’t get his name!) was really helpful as was Nanjo, we loved our free salsa lesson. It’s worth noting that we did our laundry here and it was given back to us very damp, missing numerous pieces of clothing and covered in washing powder. We also were given several pieces of clothing that weren’t ours. We’d recommend staying here but going elsewhere for laundry

    Great location in the Getsemani neighborhood. So close to a lot of the bars and restaurants I wanted to check out while here. Close walk to Plaza Trinidad which has something going on pretty much every night. The staff were so great from the moment I entered and got to check in until my departure. I had a small error with my bill and when I flagged it with the manager they fixed it right away and were so kind throughout my stay. Definitely a place I would recommend to others and stay again.

    Positives: good location, 5 min to town centre, close to San Felipe Castle and in the middle of a party area. Very good breakfast, though somewhat inconvenient setting. Negatives: the rooms are small and half don't have a window, just an aperture to the corridor. Party area means noisy nights. The staff were very young and inexperienced.

    Worst hostel so far. There was NO buffet breakfast. We got the choice between eggs and yoghurt (mixed with tap water in front of our eyes) with granola, both included toast (toasted until black and hard) and a tiny bit of fruit. The double room we booked for three nights was so tiny we couldn't even fit our backpacks in and still walk into the bathroom. The room itself had a really old and rotten smell, and it didn't have any windows. Their was no cleaning service for three days we were there.

    Bar didn't open at the advertised time, and closed at midnight, poorly stocked (only beer and rum and enough gin for 1 shot - no tonic water). The bartender was lovely though. Reception staff not friendly or helpful, except the receptionist from New York - she was really genuine and friendly. A group of 5 of us stayed in 3 private rooms, but airconditioners only worked in two rooms, bathrooms were so small you could barely use the toilet, not very clean. Included breakfast was average.
