    Enjoyed my stay at Icon Capsule. It was really hot in Cartagena (end of July) so we would come back and dip in the pool. Very clean room with AC, bathrooms and common areas. High recommend!

    Loved the hostel, stayed here 2 extra nights than planned. Only shame was that the people staying at the same time were not the most sociable. Staff super helpful and lovely. Smallest of the rooms has very little floor space so would try get a bigger room.

    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.

    This was a very good hostel. Location was perfect, it was clean, and had good air conditioning. However there really wasn't much of an atmosphere if you're solo and looking to meet other people. Would stay here again.

    Great hostel! The location and the staff were awesome, the beds very private and the room with good air conditioner. The only thing is that the showers in the first floor are not very good, cause there is very little water. All in all its a cool hostel :)

    The location is what makes this place stand out. Located on quiet street in the Walled City &close to everything. Breakfast was good, Great AC & the capsules feel private. That being said, the dorms were tiny. Barely any room for backpacks/bags. There’s only two women’s bathrooms (1 shower, 1 toilet in each) so there were lines for showers. I only took ONE hot shower bc there was never hot water. Atmosphere was meh & there was no bartender on staff. If it was cheaper, I’d give it a 9.

    A typical basic noisy hostel, with a kind of disappointing breakfast, full of inconsiderate smoking 20-somethings. Really only suitable for them, not someone who wants a place to relax and sleep. Noisy layout around a courtyard. Loud bad music all afternoon until late. Capsules are too hot, despite the aircon. Towels cost extra. BYO padlock for the lockers. Location is good but better value and nicer environment to be found elsewhere. But hey, you get what you pay for.

    arrived at the hostel, checked in and after a few hours had to check out as it was so horrid. We then went to Casa Bohemia which was just down the road and if you’re sharing a bed it’s the same price as a hostel.

    First bad review I've really ever felt the need to leave. But this place straight up turned us away...we had a reservation for a private room and they wouldn't allow us (my girlfriend and I) to stay. Not sure I fully understand what a "private room" entails at this place. What's worse is that they were very rude throughout the entire process from the moment we even tried to check in it was like we were inconveniencing them or interrupting their conversation. Poor service - do NOT recommend :(
