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 (Yes, breakfast is included!). Wander through the city, discover great restaurants in a laid-back town, and keep in mind, our bar opens at six, and dance lessons start shortly after that!

    Amazing atmosphere, so much to do and get involved in! Very clean hostel and staff always do their best to help! Would be nice if there was more activities going on around the bar earlier in the evening but the salsa and live music that is on offer is really great! Highly recommend!

    Good hostel. Nice location. The drinks are a bit expensive and just small plastic cups. This hostel is missing a pool. But nice people and helpful staff and an amazing breakfast.

    This was my first ever hostel experience so I didn’t know what to expect. My stay here was great and I made some great friends over my 4 day stay. One thing to note is some rooms air cons are cold and others are not. I had to ask to get it fixed a few times but it didn’t really change the temperature. The bar is a great place to meet people and the town is pretty cool. They offer free entry to bars with their connections. I’d deffo recommend this place for someone traveling solo

    Had a great stay at El Viajero! Great atmosphere, lots of activities going on and very knowledgable and friendly staff to help plan your day. Perfect location in old Cartagena. Dorms are standard, with AC which is key in Cartagena heat. Overall, a great stay!

    Great location with a good atmosphere. Very safe and clean. AC in the rooms at night. Bar area is always fun at night. Offers excursions through the hostel for single days, often not a great price though.

    Good location in centro and nice that air con could be on whenever you wanted it. The breakfast was a bit basic but overall was a good night's sleep. Dislike that they don't provide free drinking water for bottle refills.
