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!

    Viajero Cartagena is one of the coolest hostels I have been to! Location is within arms reach of all nightlife, as well as the majority of daytime activities. There's a ton of friendly travelers as well as staff here, all of which are happy to chat and guide you through your desired experience in Cartagena. The bar/patio area is always a very fun time, where events are held that vary from salsa classes to live bands. And to Carlos, thank you for being a great host and friend! Un abrazo hermano

    Great location in the old town, comfy beds, clean, AC being on in the dorms at night is sooo good. Fairly big hostel, but seemed (for me at least) to put solo travellers in dorms together, rather than as an add on to big groups, which made it easier to meet people to hang out with. Music in bar is loud so going to sleep before midnight is a challenge in the rooms that open onto the bar. But hey, you're in Cartagena - you're supposed to go out until after midnight!

    Best bits: 1. Great location, in the beautiful old town. You step straight out onto a gorgeous colourful street. 2. Air conditioned rooms. Cartagena is HOT. 3. The breakfast was good with plenty of options (we got it free with private rooms although I think you pay if you’re in a dorm) Not-so-good bits: 1. Our room and particularly bathroom was a bit grubby eg. Towels not properly clean 2. Rooms right next to bar/kitchen. Loud at night but worse at 6am with kitchen staff preparing breakfast

    Showers long way from rooms have to walk past people on deck chairs in your boxers. Aircon leaked. Lockers didn't work. No atmosphere at night. Kept sending us to this same s***** club. But yeah good hostel! Redeeming feature was the TV room that doubled up as storage and genuine proximity to the old town (it was in it)

    Comfy beds, great showers with liquid soap, friendly staff but they don’t include breakfast and they don’t have a swimming pool, so I would say is a little pricey.
