Property Description

Experience the real Cartagena in Wonderland. Located in the best neighborhood with everything you need in walking distance…airport, beaches, park with bike trails & skateboarding, supermarkets, ATM’s, restaurants. And when you want to be a tourist, it’s only a few minutes by taxi or bus, then you can come back and cool down with the ocean breeze in the pool and drinks at the bar.
Wonderland is a party hostel, but not 24/7. We have special events with local artists and DJ’s, and costeños (people from Cartagena) who come to hang out with us. Party days can get crazy, so be ready to join in and have fun!! There’s music every day, but we take requests so generally it’s an eclectic international mix. Quiet hours are midnight to 7am. If you want to continue the party, we have free entrances to the best local clubs.
Surprise activities are always happening as well. Our staff organizes activities based on what you want…a visit to the local market, ping-pong tournaments (or beer pong depending on the day!), bike tours, soccer matches, cooking lessons, food tours, or learn to dance to the most popular music in Cartagena (Champeta) local style.
During the day the pool and bar are open. The kitchen is available if you prefer to cook your own meals. Or if the heat is too much, you can chill (literally) in the Netflix room.
We can help with tours and recommendations, and tips and tricks to make sure you get the best prices instead of the tourist version. Luggage storage is also available if you decide to take a short trip to the islands.
Check out social media for more details or if you have questions prior to arrival, your Wonderland family is happy to help! View House Rules

    After doing 6 months in SA, I can confidently say this is the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The vibes are great. Activities are fun and ran by the most lovely human being Kris. The staff is awesome. Pool is amazing. Walking distance to airport, restaurants etc. Cheap cab to the centre. Handful of beaches a short walk away. Hostel owner Jess is LOVELY! Cannot sing high enough praises for this place I would stay forever if I could have. Thank you so much wonderland. Until we meet again!

    I can’t say enough good thing about the staff here, they are absolutely amazing. Such nice people. They were so helpful and answered any and all questions we had. They booked us in for tours as well. Keep in mind that this is a party hostel so the only downside is the music until playing until late. Would definitely stay here again. No hot water though which is to be expected and it is out of downtown so you will have to take a cab to get into the city.

    Stayed here twice!! Since it’s not in the center you are close to cheap eats, an almost empty beach and a massive swimming pool! The staff was great! Beto at the front desk was extremely helpful!

    Nice hostel but not really a party hostel. When I was there, there weren't a lot of people. (End of april) Improvement could be some more sunbeds at the pool and some comfortable couches in the airconditioned netflix room. Overall a nice and good hostel!

    This hostel was very affordable and friendly. Very accommodating and hard working staff. Beds are simple but clean and comfortable. Washrooms are clean. Cartagena is very hot so it’s nice that the hostel has a pool to cool off in. Surrounding areas aren’t too exciting and the only thing that was disappointing was the location of the hostel. Otherwise this place was great!

    The only good thing about this was the location to the airport. Especially if you have a early departure. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom/shower are good. The pool seems like it needs a good cleaning. You can’t bring your own alcohol. But they have bar with Happy hour menu. But there are great nearby places to eat/drink for cheap. I’ve meet some really cool travellers at this hostel tho!

    The only good thing about this hostel was the proximity to the airport. It’s a 5 minute walk which was great for our 8 am flight. The rest of our stay was horrible though. The front desk guy was very rude the whole time, the bathrooms were really dirty, our room smelled, the beds were uncomfortable, the dorms were hot and the music was so extremely loud until about 2 am. I would never stay here again nor recommend this hostel to anyone. Worst hostel stay I’ve ever experienced.
