    Highly Recommend!!!! Awesome staff and very welcoming and helpful. We rented a private room which had a great ambiance and ice cold ac which was wonderful after a hot day out in Cartagena. Carlos was a great help at helping us book tours and excursions with super ease. I can’t wait to come back and stay here again.

    I just wanted to say thank you to all the staff of Viajero Cartagena. It was really truly an amazing experience to be able to have a place to stay that represents the city of Cartagena. Everyone was more than helpful with all the questions I asked. Also a special shout-out to Carlos for going above and beyond accommodating my needs. Thank you once again and do yourself a favor and choose this place while you discover Cartagena.. you won’t regret it.

    Cartagena is hot as hell. Thankfully, the A/C in my room was great. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They made me feel comfortable and safe. And they spoke English which was a plus. I only stayed a night, but will be coming back to this hostel after my lost city trek. Great location in the old quarter too.

    We stayed there a couple nights. More expensive than other non advertized locally-run hostels but overall a very good one with nice helpful staff.

    Enjoyed my stay here, when was clean and the staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. It’s very close to the center, and lots of places nearby to eat and drink. Would stay again.

    Very Good

    Overall the hostel was nice. The private room was very spacious and included a free towel. There was a tv in the room but no minibar/small fridge. The shared showers were clean and there was free soap to use for everyone. Not sure how to explain but the hostel has no roof were the dorms and singles are so it can get pretty hot in the communal areas. Lucky my private had airconditioning. The kitchen is very small and doesn’t looks the cleanest but does the job.. apart from that it’s a fun hostel

    Very Good

    Comparing this to other hostels that I’ve stayed at in the world, I feel like that if I came to Cartagena again, I would use a different hostel. When I checked in, it was a rush to get to me to my room. Nothing was presented to me as far as excursions could be made through them. I woke up early one morning for a possible excursion only to be told that they already left. I had no idea.
