    This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It's the perfect location within the walled city. All staff were helpful and available at all times. The breakfast was tasty (not huge but enough) with good coffee. There are only 2 women's bathrooms but I rarely had to wait and the showers had good pressure with HOT water (definitely rare on the coast). I was in the 6 bed dorm with great AC. I loved the pod ideas as I had so much privacy. I wanted a quiet hostel and this definitely was!

    This is hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in (and I've been in well over 20). It felt like a beautiful oasis in the centre of a busy tourist city. It is stunningly gorgeous: the doors and windows are beautiful, and my private room had stained glass windows. I also stayed in the dorms for one night and they are some of the best designed dorms I've seen – quiet, private, and comfy. The staff are so lovely and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. I loved it and would stay again.

    Great place inside the historical walls. I loved relaxing in the pool during the hot afternoons. This is the first place I noticed staff consistently cleaning the bathrooms throughout the entire day. I was able to meet other travelers upstairs on the patio. The capsules with curtain allow for privacy.

    Fantastic place - would thoroughly recommend - definitely coming back again - all the staff work so hard to make sure you have everything you need on your stay. You’re close to everything in Cartagena, as well as having a great rooftop jacuzzi and bar to chill out on when you want to relax too.

    Our stay at The Icon Capsule Hostel was amazing! The beds/bed area was great as it gave a lot more privacy than most regular hostel rooms. The rooms were also air conditioned, which was much needed! Both the pool and the jacuzzi (room temperature water - trust me, you don't want hot!) were both excellent, and the breakfast was delicious. The staff were attentive and tried to give us any recommendations. Overall great stay and would definitely recommend!

    I stayed in the private room upstairs while I was in Cartagena for a wedding. It was perfect. Very comfortable and Great value. I had all I needed for my stay. The private room was on the roof with the jacuzzi and bar. So, Perfect! This isn’t really a party hostel I didn’t see a lot of people using the bar. The pool is very nice for cooling down and the staff is helpful and polite.

    Beautiful little hostel in the heart of the walled city. Beds were comfortable, showers had good water pressure, and even with only two woman’s restrooms there never seemed much of a wait. Breakfast was included and was perfectly adequate, and came with a very nice strong coffee and fresh fruit. There is a lovely pool downstairs which was perfect to cool down in after walking around all morning. My only recommendation is that you request a bottom bunk, you’ll understand why.

    The hostel is in a great location, and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Exceptionally clean with a lovely bathroom and very comfortable beds (we were in a 8 bed dorm). The pool doesn’t get sun but is great for dipping, and there is a fantastic roof terrace with another little plunge pool there as well.
