    Gloria who checked us in at the front desk is wonderful. She even brought me a birthday cupcake for my birthday while we stayed at the hotel. She was very helpful with travel and bus info too. This was a lovely place to relax and stay. The hotel food is excellent too. Thank you, Gina

    Posada Kalea is the best beach hostel in Cartagena, room was amaizing, very clean, with a great sea view balcony and very comfortable bed. The staff is outstanding, always there to help you and trying to make your stay the best in Cartagena. When going downtown it’s really easy, you can take a collective taxi for 1usd. There is a bar, restaurant and a Kite school that are diferent business from the hostel, but they also offer very good service. I will definitely reccomend this place!!!

    Amazing place and people. Especially Gloria, Ken and John, as they all made my stay incredible! They have many water sports available and it’s great for having a PROPER local experience. It’s not exactly the kind of place you go out at night but they are extremely helpful and came with me to get food and to the shops. Day time is incredible!!! It’s a great place to escape the city, and they are up for hanging out with you if you want to chill having a beer and stuff. I didn’t want to leave!!!!!

    This is kiteboarding world. I didn’t do it, but just lounged around for an evening before a flight the next day. It’s not an especially pretty beach, however it is quiet, convenient and peaceful to listen to the ocean. It is a nice dorm room with comfy beds and a clean bathroom. Recommend for some tranquility!

    Getting there was kind of scary, it is far from the main Cartagena area, the street there is not paved and taxi drivers had a hard time finding the place. The room (6 bed dorm) wasnt that clean, there were a few bugs on our pillow :( and a dead roach on the floor, so that was unpleasant. The staff was amazing, they helped us get a taxi since its far from everything else (so be prepared to pay what you save on taxis). One of my friends saw a rat, which was apparently normal to them.

    The place felt deserted and somewhat unsafe. While there was a restaurant and bar advertised, neither was open. The check-in process was proloned and disorganized and there was lots of back-and-forth, which was challenging because I needed to take a phone call right after checking in. I arranged for an early breakfast my day of departure, but the employee responsible for this either misunderstood or simply decided not to show up for this, so I never got breakfast. Paid to much for a mediocre.
