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

    Lovely little hostel 5 minutes walk from the airport, nice looking bar and brilliant pool area and bicycle hire which is great as the beach is about 100 meters away, perfect for people using the airport

    Lovely place! Is very helpful to be that near of the airport and when you get there you'll be totally in the mood thanks to the lovely staff. Awesome bar, quite funny and enjoying even if you're not booked in the place

    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.

    The staff is truly where this hostel shines. Everyone was pleasant and very helpful. During our stay, it was quite empty (outside of some locals that came to enjoy the pool) but we made it work. Music plays from 10:00am to 12:00am so don't expect to take naps. The breakfast is your typical South American hostel breakfast. In walking distance from the airport which is great. Rooms can get a little hot even when they do decide to turn the AC but it's Cartagena remember? Great Hostel!

    All in all great hostel. Simple, but clean and offers some things to do. Only a 5 minutes walk from the airport. Wouldn't recommend staying longer than 1-2 nights though, there's not much to do in the area.

    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!

    There was no party atmosphere but more like a zombie apocalypse had wiped out the scene. The “staff” was just two teenagers who didn’t speak any English. Weird layout but not filthy or unsafe.

    Staff Honestly and security is low here. I forgot something of value to me under my pillow when I checked out, and when I called to ask if I could come pick it up they said they didn’t have anything. I have the exact date and time I left, know that it was one of the staff cleaning crew who stripped my bed, yet the hostel has now gone radio silent with me and I have been left with a horrible feeling about this hostel. As well, air con turns off at 8am so everyone in the rooms are awake by 8:15

    Unfortunately probably the worst hostel I stayed in during travelling. The photos must be from about 10 years ago. It’s completely run down and dirty. Absolutely no atmosphere or events happening whilst I was there. Overall it was a complete let down and we ended up avoiding being at the hostel if we could. Breakfast is also very questionable.
