Property Description

Media Luna Hostel is a unique combination of chill-out backpacker vibes and the historical feel of Cartagena. The old colonial building sheds a magical setting for enjoying a cold beer with your fellow travelers, sun-bathing at the lush patio or dipping into the refreshing pool to escape the heat of the Caribbean.
Media Luna is located in the area of Getsemani, which forms the artistic heart of the city's urban culture. Several well-known landmarks like the San Felipe Fort and the romantic historical center, as well as the trendiest bars and local restaurants, are all within a few minutes walk. If you wish to explore further you can also rent bikes at the hostel!
In the open-air kitchen you can prepare your own breakfast or cook a group dinner for your new mates. In addition there is a free Wi-Fi in the hostel area, computers, tv-room, laundry, luggage storage and lockers. You can also book excursions or a bus to the next destination of your adventure.
The sunny patio forms the heart of the hostel during the day time, but at the night time the center of the action is at the roof top bar and terrace with cold drinks and a spectacular view over the city. Don't miss the famous Media Luna Mega Party on Wednesdays it flies you over the moon!
In the Hostel we have private rooms and shared dormitories, all with air conditioning and locker which must bring its own padlock, and breakfast is included in all rates.
We also have a Hostel on Barú Island which is located on a private beach, which you can change one night of your stay here from the Hostel in Cartagena to the Hostel in Barú.

    LOVE IT! Our first stop in Colombia. Soooo friendly and warm welcome and took such good care of my friend when she hit her head, couldn't have dealt with the situation without them. Dorms were super clean and comfy. Really fun atmosphere, great people and yummy breakfast! Have recommended it to lots of people we've met on our travels!

    A great place to stay outside the city walls! It is very close to a street with tons of restaurants and snacks. The rooms were clean and the AC was great for sleeping at night. No hot water but you don't need any given the heat of Cartagena.

    Very clean and spacious with a good breakfast and good facilities. Only downside is the top bunks were very high which meant it was awkward to pack or store items qnd get up and down when we both got given top bunks. Good overall atmosphere.

    Lovely open space with nice rooms, but bedding in our dorm was not that clean & the walls were quite grimy. Nice atmosphere in the day but mixed at night - booming Spanish karaoke on one night - and everything is audible in every room as they surround the courtyard & the bar (which is more of a table selling limited drinks).

    Very good hostel! Staff were really nice and helpful! Centrally located in a safe place! It does tend to get loud at night though but not past 1 am. I’d stay again :)

    La onda del hostel es buena y los espacios comunes están lindos las habitaciones no. Las literas están re altas y las escaleras son muy incómodas y no tienen tomacorrientes individual había 4 en una pieza de 6 y 2 no andaban. A la noche el aire acondicionado estaba a 14 y solo tenía 1 sábana. El baño y la habitación en general no estaban del todo limpios. el desayuno es escaso. Y los lockers no son para nada buenos ni seguros, sin mencionar q en mi habitación estaban fuera de funcionamiento.

    Only one power socket for a room of four people which is incredibly inconvenient. Staff were quite unfriendly but were helpful in changing my dates for me. Breakfast was good and bathrooms were clean. This is a party hostel - my only issue with this is that they will blare loud music to a completely atmosphereless anti social courtyard.

    I didn't enjoy my time at all, in fact I changed hostels because I couldn't stand another night. Music plays very loudly and it's all party music, nothing chill for the daytime. The rooftop club thumps it's music until 4am and the doors and windows of the rooms don't close properly so no hope of sleeping. There's no PowerPoint in your bed, A/C is freezing at night and fan doesn't work during the day. No tables to work on a computer except the closed in tv room, where the wifi doesn't reach.
