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

    Had a great 3 days at Wonderland hostel with some mates! The hostel was conveniently located bear the hospital and a 10/10 sushi/pizza shop just next door with a supermarket nearby for those days you are feeling a bit cheaper! You can choose whether to include breakfast or not for those days you know you aren't making it out of bed early! The staff were 10/10 helpful and friendly, especially Gelder who was our man at the bar on his own birthday! Overall it was am amazing fee days at Wonderland!

    Great place to stay, very close to the airport, but too far from the main places to visit in Cartagena, like old city and Getsêmani.

    Perfect for me as I arrived late to Cartagena and was leaving early in the morning. 5 min walk from the airport. Only thing I would was is that the old town in Cartagena is amazing and would recommend to stay there as there is so much going on.

    Pros: can walk from airport, staff are friendly and spoke English, the pool area is great, drinks are reasonably priced, the beach is close and quiet. Unfortunately, it wants to be a party hostel but due to location it relies on people not going into town, which everyone does, hence no party atmosphere. It would be ideal as an airport pit stop for early flights but the loud music until 12am does not allow that either. It has potential but not how it is currently marketed. We cut our stay short.

    The people who work here are SO nice.. but this hostel was bad. The location is terrible. It's near the airport but far from everywhere else. The people staying at the hostel when I was there (on a weekday) were insanely loud & didn't follow basic hostel courtesy rules (being quiet / not turning the lights on after a certain hour). I've heard the vibe here is better on the weekends.. maybe i caught it at a bad time / bad ppl. Nice pool. No A/C. There are much better places to stay in Cartagena

    Hostel is very far from main city but walking distance to airport. Speaker was right outside our room and was extremely loud. Had to pay for luggage storage for a few days.

    The big plus is that it is within a short walking distance from the airport. The place is very noisy with music blasting until midnight. You can not hear yourself think. It is a party place, I understand, but some of us just wanted to get to the airport on time. The rooms are air conditioned at night, but no one closes the door to the outside or to the bathroom where is an open window. There are no outlets in sleeping boxes to recharge your phone. Staff was very pleasant.

    Really not a party hostel in any way, that definitely needs to be taken out of the name of this place to avoid disappointment. On a Saturday night listening to advertising while the staff watch the soccer with the tv taking up the bar, blasting through the sound system kills any fun vibes this place could have... air conditioner was on from 8pm to 8am in our room. Definitely no sleep in if you were to go into town to party, it is incredibly hot in the rooms during the day.
