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!

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!

    Awesome hostel in a great location with friendly and helpful staff! Also really easy to meet other travellers with the events they run daily and bar happy hours. And a special shout out to Carlos at the reception for being a massive help and Emanuelle for being a fun host!

    Had such a great stay at this hostel! Location was ideal - very central but the perfect distance from the busy touristy streets so not too loud! Bed was comfy and the 10 bed dorm was spacious. Good aircon too! Nice breakfast, kitchen and big bar area. The staff were so nice and helpful. They arranged a door to door minibus to take us to Taganga, our next destination, which was great. Lots of beach/ boat tours offered by the hostel too. A pool at the hostel would have made it perfect.

    My second time in this hostel. I highly recommend it. The atmosphere was really poor this last time, but I guess that wasn't the hostel's fault, just the people who happened to be there. Breakfast it's great, they have salsa lessons, happy hour, and can hook you up with very convenient tours.

    The AC in the dorms and TV room was really nice, the bunk beds were comfy and clean. There were good areas to hang out and meet people, and the dancing and soccer events were fun. Showers and bathrooms were clean as well. Sometimes was loud at night but nothing too bad. Friendly and helpful staff and good location. Overall lovely place, would stay again.

    Viajero offered a ton of fun activities that created a great environment! Facilities are clean, breakfast is decent, and the staff is great. It has a bit of a motel feel - a courtyard and then the rooms all around it. Security could be better, the individual hostel rooms cannot be locked and anyone can buzz in to the hostel itself (hard to tell if staff checks people entering). Plugs are all by the door, not by the beds.

    Very Good

    The hostel had a great atmosphere, but location was not perfect. I also don’t think the bathroom in the private rooms was that great. The room was quite expensive also for the value for money in terms of room. It was also quite a dull bathroom

    I really sisnt like the hostel the moment i got in took them 40 mins to check us in and forgot to give us the bracelet we got two days with breakfest we paid good money and last day told us to pay extra for breakfest and wont let us. They had a change of policy without letting anyone know, mistaken us for other who added a day it was really bad experience.
