Overview

Get a feel for old-school Cartagena at Viajero Cartagena Hostel, set inside a revamped 19th-century house in the walled city. Start every day with our free breakfast before strolling into the historic centre to take in churches and museums, cool coffee shops and local handicrafts. Right outside our door, rainbow-painted colonial buildings line the streets and flowers cascade from our neighbours' balconies. Snap some shots to share with friends back home and then send them using our free Wi-Fi.

Location

We're just 10 minutes by taxi from Rafael Núñez International Airport – don't be afraid to get into some friendly haggling with your driver over the price! Or you can hop on a local bus and be with us in 25 minutes. Once you're here, the historic city centre is just a 10-minute walk away. You can easily reach major attractions like the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas (15 minutes on foot), or stick around the walled city for local hangouts like Plaza Fernandez Madrid.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll get free linen and air con whether you go for a dorm or a private room. Lockable chests keep your valuables safe while you sleep and when you're out on the town. For extra luxury, book a private double or a large dorm with an en-suite bathroom. Women have the choice of bunking with the guys in a mixed dorm or taking one of our female-only rooms instead.

Extras and activities

Grab a drink at our outdoor, on-site bar or flop down in front of a box set in our comfy TV room. There's no better place for an afternoon nap than a hammock on one of the two patios – and the outdoor terrace is also where you'll find local dance lessons (think: salsa, bachata, champeta), open mic nights and games of beer pong. Give your favourite T-shirts a well needed wash with our laundry service so you can keep wearing them every day!

    I loved the staff so much! They answered all my random questions, took care of printing something for me, and let me get my covid test in the TV room! I'd 1000% come back! I also felt safe and my room was really comfortable!

    One of the staff who didn’t speak English (or pretended not to?) gave me a hard time and wouldn’t help me find a bus out of the City when I asked three times to help translate the Spanish and get me the number for the neighboring hostel in the same country.

    The staff are so great at this place. I couldn't have been more impressed. I thought the facilities were okay. They were clean but pretty old and run down. Most people there thought it was super nice so maybe take my review with a grain of salt. Overall, I enjoyed the people I met but I wouldn't stay again.

    Super great staff! The facilities were fairly old and the atmosphere was quiet (I’m sure because of covid) location was good

    The dorm rooms don’t have doors that lock which makes no sense considering every other viajero I’ve stayed in does have locking doors for it’s rooms. The lockers are too small to fit a standard travel backpack and the space for locking does not accommodate a standard locker lock. Luckily it’s in a beautiful neighborhood and boy too pricy. The events were also pretty fun.

    Worst layout for a hostel I’ve ever seen. The bathrooms were under construction/ far from the rooms so you have to walk half naked through the hostel. A/C is shut down from 11am-6pm Then you have to ask for them to turn on, meanwhile you sweat in rooms. They don’t give us the remote to the AC. During the evening it’s warmer so the AC is lower but you have no way of changing it yourself so in the middle of the night they ask you get out of bed walk to the front desk and ask them to turn it up.
