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.


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!

    Great place to stay! It’s a short walk to every great part of the city and the staff are really helpful at answering questions. I had any easy time making friends here, especially because there are good social activities at night. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and WiFi was good.

    Good location in the old town, rooms have aircon (super important in Cartagena!), staff are super friendly and helpful! Bar never seemed to be busy which made it hard to meet people as a solo traveller

    Great location, many amenities, very friendly staff, fun atmosphere at night, tiny safes available, air conditioning in rooms at night, kitchen for cooking & storing food, great day trips offered at front desk ! Only cons: can be very noisy at night since the rooms border the social areas. Not enough padlocks available to lock up my luggage (mine was too big). A woman had her wallet stolen from our room, so functioning lockers are necessary. Female dorm door very creaky. But overall, fantastic!

    Overall really enjoyed my stay. For security I didn't like that there weren't full lockers for a backpack, only small security lockers for cash or cellphones/cameras. This mean my laptop wasn't secure when I left the room and that made me uneasy. Lastly, there are no fans - I'm ok without AC but fans would be idea. Thanks!

    Dorm rooms don't lock. A bit pricey for a hostel. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Decent breakfast for what you pay.

    This is a good hostel, unfortunately our private room had bedbugs! I couldn’t sleep because I was scratching all night. Beds are comfortable, and it’s a complete room. Staff is kind, hostel is very chill. We would recommend more security with the luggage room, we left one bag for like 30 min and we thought it was lost and the staff instead of helping us were blaming us for leaving valuable things on it :( We wouldn’t stay again because bed bugs are the worst.

    My experience was fine but there were a few things that really could have made it better. For starters the beds are metal with locked storage underneath. So whenever someone got something out it made SO MUCH NOISE! There is also a safe which beeps very loudly. There should be a bigger kitchen for the amount of people trying to cook. The beds were pretty firm so I woke up sore each night during my stay. The showers are inconveniently placed and often dirty (so were the rooms) Great location.

    No swimmingpool, but staff was overall friendly. At the reception the employees could speak english, bit not at the bar. The mango tree in the middle of the terrace is quite dangerous with the mangos falling out of it. Facilities could use an upgrade, they're old. Carlos Andres was 1 of the best employees there and definitely the most helpful and friendly.
