    Amazing hostel in a fantastic location. We stayed in the newer hostel that is still under refurbishment but the rooms were sizeable, very clean and the hostel had all the amenities that one needs. Fantastic place to stay :)

    Really good atmosphere, specially in the rooftop. The staff took their time to respond, even in the front desk. The location is good, even though it’s not in the walled city, it’s a 5 minutes walk from there

    Beautiful hostel with great facilities - the pool is amazing in the heat of Cartagena! Shout out to Walter for helping me with all the admin I had to do for starting a job! Otherwise staff were rude and unhelpful.

    Some+/- things about Selina in Cartagena:+they have pools on the rooftop which is awesome. Lot’s of activities. Great parties at night. -what was terrible is the check in/out (@Manager/owner, check-in/out is the only employee/customer contact we have, so better make it smooth for the customers. Is it really slow what means there is a need of another or two more employees. Beggers at night who somehow have a wristbands (lock the doors for safety). Don’t let anything laying around, it will be gone!

    As previous comments mentioned the reception staff here aren't great. They're slow and pretty rude (took at least 15 minutes for someone to acknowledge me whilst waiting to check in). Food is over priced. However as all Selinas, it's clean and has comfy beds/ good amenities. Roof top pool is a plus also.

    The pool and communal spaces are nice and the atmosphere is good during the evenings. But our twin room was tiny and with a box window that was too high to see out of it was claustrophobic / smelled of damp because of lack of ventilation. Also the music from the roof top is very loud and went on until 12 every night which you can hear loudly from the rooms.

    Unfortunately a big disappointment for the rather high price you pay. The location is great and so are the facilities but our room hardly fitted a double bed (equiped with a single sheet!) let alone a backpack and smelled moisty the entire time with no option to ventilate. The shared bathroom was dirty and had the same awful smell. The rooms aren’t isolated at all and the hall echoes any sound from any floor. During the weekend the parties went on to 3 am and the light was kept on all night.

    Atmosphere was unwelcoming, staff were unfriendly, people were rude and generally unkind and not a community aspect. Kitchen had one broken knife and not stocked with the essentials. One of the worst hostels we’ve ever stayed at.

    This is literally the worst hostel in the world. They are pretty much a hotel with zero customer service and no value for money. They try to throw a party and its always lame
