    Great hostel to meet people and to stay in the city centre. Nice vibes at the hostel as well. Beds were also pretty comfy.

    Nice building and room with a central location and a small pool. Friendly staff. We had a private double room. Room in itself was nice but situated above the bar. Therefore it was noisy with music until 23.00. So don’t expect to sleep before that in the manga double room.

    The rooms are nice, with AC and curtains for privacy, however the staff were not overly friendly and the bathroom walls were a little dirty with many locks broken on the toilet doors. Not a huge social atmosphere but it makes a quiet place to sleep. Location is very good

    It's a really big hostel so sense of community can be hard to find. Also keep on eye your staff. However the atmosphere was good, rooms were clean and breakfast was tasty.

    Pool and bar are great but not much of an atmosphere. Does get fairly loud in the private rooms as music is playing from breakfast until the bar closes fairly late. Air-conditioning in the private rooms is a awesome but overall, it's fairly pricey. I'd say you'd be better off getting a hotel and coming to hang at the bar to be honest.

    Not my favourite hostel but does the job, has a good location in the walled city, great air conditioning and front desk staff were nice but about as far as the compliments go. Most things in the hostel were broken, nearly all the chairs and the pool was dirty and missing half its (sharp) tiles. The atmosphere at this hostel was also very commercial and not that welcoming for example your own drinks are banned and the “buffet” breakfast is automatically added to the bill. Okay but wouldn’t return

    An okish hostel. Excellent location is probably the best thing here. Feels like the place is too big though. What astounded me though was the way the front desk people handled the price of my room. I have never seen such complication. Was overcharged for 1 night and told 'Cartagena was expensive'. This was refunded to me by someone at a later date. They could never seemingly decide on the correct price for a night, when booking at front desk. Really need to get ontop of that. Quite bizarre.

    Didn't do it for me at all. Showers were SUPER dirty, atmosphere was so weird (party hostel so people went to the bar in the evening but it was really cliquey and not really that social). Music playing loudly until late in the night. Staff pretty rude. Didn't have a towel for me to rent/borrow so I had to use clothes to dry myself. Ants in bed. Cute kittens and breakfast were the main plus, but I cancelled my second night before I had even checked in after scoping the hostel out.

    Awful. Not allowed alcohol from outside, but not stated on the website, only on paper you sign when u get there. But reservation is not refundable, so not much choice. Guy confiscated my beer, felt like a 14 year old with his dad not allowing him to drink. I would not buy your overpriced beer at your lousy bar anyway. Bathroom locks broken, no toilet paper all day, loud music until midnight. Avoid and avoid. Signs not to feed the skinny dying cats. How cold can you be? Enjoy my beer.
