    ICON was a lovely hostel. It’s clean, the staff is friendly and so wonderful with anything you need. The staff speaks English as well. The breakfast was pretty good. The bathrooms were great and the pods are nice for privacy. They have a pool and a not so hot hot tub (water temp was great) on the roof. It’s located in a great area within walking distance to the main plaza, restaurants and bars. Only con for me is the walls are thin so you can Hear everything and it can get loud at times.

    Very chill hostel, with not too much space to hang, but I came to relax between trips to the islands. And for that, this place was perfect. I love the capsule style!

    Has a real "boutique" feel to it with swimming pool on ground floor and jacuzzi on the roof. Great location in the old town. There's no storage in the single room, not even hooks or shelves, so everything stays on the floor.

    Mostly of the hostel is good. The only thing I complain is the 6 bed room dorm and the bathroom. The dorm is tiny, if you are on the bed of the top is annoying that you have the locker at the bottom of the bed, due the fact you have to climb to your bed with your luggage, the lockers should be out of the bunks. Also, the bathroom is so stretch. If you are tall and you have to poop, you will hit your knees with the door, is so uncomfortable, btw, inside the bathrooms there is no ventilation.

    Perfect location for sightseeing in the Old Town. The 24 a/c in the bedrooms was a life saver. Too bad there wasn’t more of a common area with air con- but the pool and free breakfast made up for it. My favourite part was the huge ensuite bathrooms and pod style beds! Highly recommend.

    There wasn’t many people there when we stayed so it’s hard to rate on atmosphere but the bar seemed to have limited options. Bathroom facilities are really clean and modern for Cartagena hostel standards. We moved over to Getsamani after a few nights and preferred that area over Old Town.

    Very Good

    The Icon is in a perfect location in Cartagena, the staff and facilities are very good as well. My only issue was loud music been played from the AM till late night. It gets annoying if you want to read, relax, take a nap, or sleep in early., since there is no quiet time ever. Great if you don't mind the noise, other than that everything was fine and I enjoyed my stay.

    After staying at this hostel for a few days, I would say it is average to below average in terms of quality. The staff at most times seemed totally disinterested and at worst, a bit rude, the open smoking throughout the hostel was quite gross and the lack of lock on the doors wasn't ideal. The breakfast was also quite bad. The location was great, but the atmosphere wasn't ideal. The male bathrooms were also mostly unusable due to space but the women's ones were fine.
