    There was construction while I was there, so the hostel was not at full capacity. The hostel was still great and I recommend it to anyone visiting Cartagena.

    Amazing staff, great social. This is without a doubt one of the most caring and helpful hostels I have stayed at in my life. The staff are absolutely amazing and nothing is too much. I had so much trouble with a parcel stuck in customs and they were available 24hrs a day without question. The hostel itself is an amazing space, perfect size and great facilities, they also appear to be cleaning constantly so everything is spotless! A/C is on whenever you want which is a saviour in Cartagena.

    Really nice place in the old town close to all the places you want to visit in Cartagena. The rooms are spacious with a locker to store your stuff. The bathrooms are clean and have enough space. Overall, good place to stay.

    Not much of a social atmosphere (but maybe that’s just when I was there). Clean rooms and very nicely airconned. Staff were helpful but not particularly friendly.

    Very Good

    Has its pros and fine. The staff is super nice and friendly. The included breakfast for the private rooms was mediocre at best. The private rooms were clean and comfortable. AC was great. My biggest issue was the common area wasn’t very large and they didn’t really have any events going on so if you’re solo traveling looking to meet new people I’d probably recommend staying somewhere else but this is a good spot for couples or groups.

    Overall, the hostel is good. Take care with the Friday night pub crawl, because they promise you free alcohol (which you get, but limited). However, they take you to bars where they rip you off for up to USD 8$ for a shot and USD 4$ for a beer, having nothing to do with Colombian prices but is about ripping off tourists.

    When I’ve got there they told me they don’t have any place even though they confirmed my reservation. So they helped me find another place to stay.

    The Location was very good, close to all the interesting districts in cartagena. The beds were also very comfortable. What I was not happy about was the staff of the hostel. Only a few were helpful and friendly. They recommended us a very bad bus company and the help for our broken safe and door lock was very minimal. After we checked in they started renovating the hostel and told us on the day they started. Because of the construction work it was loud and we couldnt hang in the common area.

    The hostel was a building site when we we there’s so there wasn’t many people there. Was only told a few days before that this was the case. Also some of the staff were rude and don’t give accurate information. It does potential though and the location is great in the old town
