    Probably one of the best hostels i have ever been in. Party is awesome when needed and there are ways to get some peace with the rooftop and the pool when you feel like recovering alone. Don’t agree with some reviews saying rooms are small, the beds are really bigger than elsewhere and it made up for it for me. Lovely staff and organization too.

    This is a cool hostel, their amenities are good enough that usually the crew doesn’t go out of the hostel to party until really late which is good and bad in my opinion.

    Pros- beautiful hostel, really social atmosphere, the pool is great for the hot days. The staff is very friendly especially the bartenders. Dorm beds are pod-style with curtains for privacy and facilities are generally clean. Cons- Breakfast isn’t free, but it is good. Drinks are overpriced (but that’s everywhere in Cartagena). I would highly recommend República for solo travelers looking for a fun experience! I had an amazing stay, would definitely return.

    Stayed here as a solo traveller, have also stayed in Selina in cartagena which has better rooftops but republica overall had nicer dorms Pros: Spacious beds, plenty of room in the dorms, own light switch plugs and privacy Nice rooftop Great location Staying here gets you free entry to a great rooftop club for a night out Cons: A/c is not on in the day time so no escaping the heat in the day time Would be nice if coffee was more easily available rather that paying for breakfast

    For me this was the wrong hostel at the wrong time. I arrived having not been well and there was a pool party so it was super noisy. All rooms seem to overlook the courtyard so it’s impossible to get some peace. My room had nice beds but no privacy curtains. My bed opened out to the main door which meant zero privacy, based on this I decided to move. Great location though and seemed social

    Honestly dont really understand the hype around this hostel. Toilets were not clean, pool is very small (there are other hostels with much better pools), staff is very absent and not interested, rooms are small with too little storage space resulting in complete chaos. Also no AC in common areas which makes it very humid and hot. And furthermore, breakfast is totally not worth the money! Would not stay again, there are many better options in Cartagena.
