Beautiful boutique hostel in a great location in Cartagena, easy to walk from the hostel to the main areas. The breakfast in the morning was lovely and the staff were so attentive and always helpful and polite. The hostel is very small so it’s perfect if you want a quieter environment, however it’s not the place if you want to socialise and meet others. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and it was perfect for what we were after!

I stayed for the better part of a week in the 4 bed dorm. Facilities are more like a hotel than hostel. Everything is very clean, staff are pleasant and the free breakfast is fantastic.

This is a good hostel but I think I had very high expectations after reading the reviews. It's a good hostel, but it's no better than many other hotels I've stayed in that were cheaper. I'd say it's a fairly standard hostel. The staff are nice, the beds are comfortable and the breakfast is good but there was nothing that I thought was amazing. It did get a bit annoying always having to have someone open the door for you but I guess that's the price for decent security.
