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 to the historic center, then you can come back and cool down with the ocean breeze in the pool and drinks at the bar.

We have special events with local artists and DJs, and costeños (people from Cartagena) who come to hang out with us. 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!), 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 to cool off from the hot Cartagena weather. Our onsite restaurant offers snacks and meals all day with options for every budget and diet...if you have food allergies or prefer vegetarian or vegan options, our staff can help even if it's not on the menu.

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

    Perfect hostel if you're waiting for a flight. Only criticism: the water was off for almost a full day (it was off when I arrived and they said this was the case since the day before). It came back on in the early evening though so didn't affect me too much.

    Very beautiful hostel, the common areas were all very pleasant to be but note that THERE ISN'T A KITCHEN that guests can use. Although they say this in the description, they say that only staff can use and guests can buy the (costly) meals. The rooms are clean, AC works well, but is quite enclosed, and there's no power outlet or light in each bed, which can make it hard for charging your stuff over night

    As described by other reviews. Loud party oriented hostel that is close to the airport and beach. Overall what I expected.

    Nice enough to stay a night at the airport but no vibes, staff can’t speak English, and genuinely felt like I was the only person there! Do not stay here to actually enjoy Cartagena this is not a party hostel it was DEAD. But facilities were nice for a hostel close to the airport. It was only a 5 min walk which was great

    While this hostel is nice in that it's only a 5 minute WALK from the airport, that is also a bit of a negative as it's far away from the downtown of Cartagena where everything interesting is. Maybe it was just the time that I was there but the atmosphere was really dead... I actually thought I might be the only one staying at the hostel until I saw someone leaving a room. Also, they play music ALL DAY in the common area, which is extremely loud and I could hear it in my room till Ten PM.

    English is spoken here and staff are friendly. It's a very nice facility with large areas and a swimming pool. But, very few guests stay here because of the AC which is ON during evenings only. Cartagena, during the day, is burning hot. So, we cannot stay in bed after the AC gets cut off around 7:30 in the morning. Where can we go? Well, the beach is nearby but it's not a good beach. There is not whole lot else around this area except the airport. Very boring.

    I thought the bed was quite uncomfortable, as well as the pillow was not even a pillow, it was a sheet of paper. The price for the bed was really expensive for what it was, when there is a hotel that is nicer down the street that is double the price of a bed here. So if you are a couple I'd stay at the hotel not here. Also the wifi didn't work well from the room, there was only one bathroom with one toilet for 14 people, you can imagine how dirty and gross that bathroom got in the morning.

    THE WORST HOSTEL WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN! Do not go there - the pictures are nothing like reality. Upon arrival we were shown up to a dark, dirty room. The sheets had strange and gross yellow and brown spots on them, and the room was filthy. Nothing like the pictures - it is false advertisement! The bathrooms lacked toilet paper and none of the toilets had a toiletseats. Also there was no space for our lugage, so when it says, they have lugage storages that is a lie. Stay away from this place!
