    Superb

    My favourite hostel in Cartagena for the great ambiance, decoration and location. The Private rooms at Republica feel like you're at a really good hotel, very spacious and well decoorated, would really recommend if you can afford it as they are very pricey. The shared bedrooms are great, really private and cozy. The bathroom facilities were good but can be improved on, as they weren't very private at all and had some technical issues.

    Great hostel, excellent location, awesome staff; and really clean. The bar was full of nonguests (they weren't wearing a face mask), and they were partying until 2 AM. As a suggestion, the bar should be only for guests and their friends. Having a bar open to everyone damages the experience, and is not clever during a pandemic.

    Rooms are great, everything works, little bit cold due to AC at night. The pool in Republica Cartagena was overload of clorox literally

    Pro: - nice beds in cubes (there were ants though, but I don't care) - nice hostel - good location Cons: - no hostel made for cooking for yourself. We never take breakfast in hostels, as it is never enough for us. Here the kitchen is closed until 10 am for payed breakfast, so we had to wait until then. S**t cooking facilities, no place to put stuff. - hostel is like a business place, not like a personal home. Strange rules are applied.

    The hostel itself was cute, I love the cube design beds with the curtains. I didn't like soo much the shared bathrooms. They weren't very clean, the paper was piling up at the top of the trash can. And they smelled like pee.

    I had a really bad experience at this hostel. Even though I got a private bedroom, you could hear everything between the walls. The music starts at 6pm until 3-4 in the morning so you will not get any sleep, especially if you haven't slept due to early flights from the US. We are in the middle of a pandemic as well, but people were not taking any precautions or social distancing at the pool etc. I would not recommend due to the loud music. I could not relax here.

    I rented the private room. It overlooked the pool. The noise from the pool area was incessant, beginning with breakfast dishes clattering at 6:00 am and finally tapering off when the regatton stopped blasting at 11 pm, 2 pm on weekends. Here’s the thing. If you want to party, there are 100+ places to drink, dance, talk in Old Town. Management should be more considerate of those trying to sleep by MANAGING the noise. I wasted my money here. It ain’t cheap if you can’t sleep.

    I had paid for 3 nights in a 4 person room for me and my friend. After paying, I was told we were in different rooms until the second nigh. I was going to be in a 6 person and my friend was in a 4 person, all while being charged the regular 4 person room price. On top of that, it meant I had to check out of my room the next day at 12 and couldn’t check into my new room until 3 pm. There was no discount or apology. maids often left doors open and none of the advertised activities ran.
