Property Description

Cartagena's walled city is the pride of Colombia, this is where you will find Viajero Cartagena. Located in a unique colonial house in a colorful street full of flowers, balconies and near nature-filled plazas a couple blocks away.

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!

    Great hostel in a good area in town, facilities were a bit dated and could do with being updated a bit. Staff were very friendly and were always happy to help.

    Great location. While it was 89 degrees, the air conditioning did not work that well. Evening social activities were not what was on website. Bed was clean and comfortable.

    Beds were cramped together, my head was right next to someone's feet. Location was really nice in the old town but not near enough the square where most things are happening in the evening. Found a female receptionist to be a bit rude, although other staff we interacted with were nice. Woke up to do yoga one morning and then they said it wasn't going to happen for another hour so we didn't end up doing it. Seemed unorganised. The only drinking water available was the tap and it was warm. Vry avg

    Place is quite rundown and not very nice, facilities are lacking, no lock on the dorm door and I was in a room right next to the bar area (quite a lot are) where it was very loud until 12 at night, ran out of bottles of water at the desk for days, staff weren’t very friendly, no pool and facilities and chill-out areas were lacking, covered in bites to my ankles and feet after staying here - stayed in republica a couple of minutes away before here which was way nicer - rooms are cold is main +

    Terrible experience. Dorm doors don't lock so anyone can walk into your dorm. No hand soap and no paper towels in the bathrooms. No towels available to rent because they were at capacity. Just a poorly organized hostel in a great location.

    probably the worst hostel i've stayed at. design is terrible. rooms 18 and 19 should not exist as they'r directly outside of the kitchen and it's all you can hear. Most staff cant speak english, but they were nice people. But mostly the problem is the layout of the hostel. really bad.
