Stay in shared dorms (some are female only) or, if you prefer, in private bedrooms. Start your day like any Colombian would, enjoying a hot cup of coffee with fresh fruit and more. Wander through the city, discover great restaurants in a laid-back town, and keep in mind, our bar opens at four, and our FREE DAILY ACTIVITIES such as salsa and dance lessons, or live music, start shortly after that! Join the fun, get ready to go dancing to authentic Latino clubs or to bars with electronic music!

    I had an enjoyable stay at El Viajero. The staff was very friendly, the environment was very relaxed and people all hanging out together outside. I know other hostels provide free breakfast, so that would've been nice instead of having to pay for it. The single rooms are right near the bar so is tough to sleep at night. But everything else went smoothly and so glad there was A/C! Great location, cute coffee shops nearby and Exito the huge market to buy anything you need.

    I stayed in every type of room here because I decided to come earlier than my reservation , at the last minute. Every room type Was fun. The group room was unlocked but you had a lock box with a plug inside to charge your phone inside. The double bed private was cozy and the double twin was big enough for us to move around in. The staff is enthusiastic and caring. They checked on me when I became violently ill one night and offered to arrange for ambulance if needed.

    Great little hostel that's clean and well maintained. A perfect home base as you explore Cartagena, and plenty of other travelers to quickly make friends. Lots of shade or sun depending on what you are in the mood for when lounging outside. AC worked the whole time I was there.

    El Viajero is an awesome stay. Staff is super helpful and will always give you recommendations or help you with your plans! Depending on where you room is, it may be a little noisy at night but that is expected, as the hostel does activities to bring all guests together! I recommend staying!

    To borrow a towel had to pay money which is a first to me in hostel world. Staff also didn’t come off as friendly. Only slept here so not much more to add.

    The staff made us feel like they were doing us a favor by answering our questions that were also not so helpful. AND THE WORST WAS we askes to extend for 2 nights and we got a positive answer. At 22:00 we came to pay and a different staff member helped us, we were told were ONLY booked for 1 more night and there is no room in the hostel and we had to find a hostel FAST. When i checked the app i saw THEY DO HAVE SPACE but in different rooms and the staff tried to justify their stupidity. WE LEFT

    Good location but not much really going on each night. My first night there was only 4 of us in the entire hostel that went out, 2nd night there was 6. The bar staff take forever to serve you even when there is no queue. Reception staff were very nice.
