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!

    It was so easy to meet a lot of other solo travelers here...which is important to me as a solo traveler myself! The hostel also did their best to have activities and events outside of the big Wednesday party that’d bring us together (e.g., salsa lessons, pizza night, karaoke, etc). To top it off, the volunteers and staff are pretty damn great; because of Media Luna, I had an excellent time in Cartagena!

    I came here after a long flight, as it's a party hostel, it wasn't ideal for sleeping purposes when jet lagged. There were only small lockers near the only two plug sockets in the room of 8. Also there were only 2 toilets and 2 showers to share between the room of 8 I was in and another room of 8 and 3 rooms of 6. Staff were friendly and approachable. Breakfast want included but was only $7.000, it was good.

    Security is super high which is nice however they don’t allow any guests. Staff is quite rude at the front desk and for the club. Atmosphere isn’t the greatest as there isn’t a bar for the hostel. Just the nightclub only certain days of the week.

    The pool is what makes this place and the rooms are nice and cool and well air conditioned. Unfortunately there is no bar, only a fridge which serves up warm beers. You can't get any spirit mixers. Also most times we went to buy a beer we were told come back later. Would be nice to see a proper bar or let guests bring their own alcohol in to help the atomoshere.

    Great location and beautiful building but old and moisty. Our bathroom still had sand and hairs from a previous guest and both sink and shower were broken. Towels or a door lock are available when paying a deposit. Nice atmosphere among the guests. The staff was very friendly but overall we found it an expensive hostel compared to others for the quality we got in return. The place is very charming but could definitely use a refurbishment.

    The only thing that we liked about the hostel was the facilities and the free breakfast.

    Good location and nice small swimming pool. Reception staff are not friendly but will help with enquiries if asked. The rooms are in a nice courtyard setting but this also make them noisey, especially on Wednesday (party) nights. There are better quality hostels in the area that are better value for money.

    The aircon was a massive plus in the bedrooms but other than that this hostel didn't have much to write home about, was expensive for what it was and the drink prices where through the roof 20 mil for a beer at the bar and they wouldn't serve the 6 mil beers from behind the desk when the bar was open which is not great considering I didn't want to party on the roof just wanted a beer!

    Staff not very helpful. Building needs refurbishment. Loud music blasts all day even though communal areas lack any social vibe. Air con between 7pm-9am so very very hot during daytime. Good location

    No bar so had to queue for beers at reception involving long waits. Neither bathroom nor showers had locks in share rooms. Very empty apart from the Wednesday party where they over doubled the cost of drinks.
