Property Description

Media Luna Hostel is a unique combination of chill-out backpacker vibes and the historical feel of Cartagena. The old colonial building sheds a magical setting for enjoying a cold beer with your fellow travelers, sun-bathing at the lush patio or dipping into the refreshing pool to escape the heat of the Caribbean.
Media Luna is located in the area of Getsemani, which forms the artistic heart of the city's urban culture. Several well-known landmarks like the San Felipe Fort and the romantic historical center, as well as the trendiest bars and local restaurants, are all within a few minutes walk. If you wish to explore further you can also rent bikes at the hostel!
In the open-air kitchen you can prepare your own food or cook a group dinner for your new mates. In addition , the breakfast is included ,there is a free Wi-Fi in the hostel area, computers, tv-room, laundry, luggage storage and lockers. You can also book excursions or a bus to the next destination of your adventure.
The sunny patio forms the heart of the hostel during the day time, but at the night time the center of the action is at the roof top bar and terrace with cold drinks and a spectacular view over the city. Don't miss the famous Media Luna Mega Party on Wednesdays it flies you over the moon!
In the Hostel we have private rooms and shared dormitories with air conditioning and fan, locker which must bring its own padlock.
We also have a Hostel on Barú Island which is located on a private beach, which you can change one night of your stay here from the Hostel in Cartagena to the Hostel in Barú.

I want to start this review on a positive note. The location is great and the hostel is huge. The breakfast, which was included, was nice but rather small so if you’re a hungry person it might not be enough. Otherwise we joined the free salsa class which was nice and most of the staff was amazing. Now to the unfortunate part… The AirPods of our friend got stolen, by an employee. The concerning part is that none of the other employees were “shocked”, so make sure to lock all your stuff in.

Overall a really good hostel, mainly due to the location, rooms were good but none of our beds had a curtain and other rooms did, the hostels atmosphere was a bit dead but so close to bars and cool streets for drinks on a night time so wasn’t too bothered, facilities seemed a bit run down and derelict in places but this hostel as so much potential and the staff were really lovely as well so overall would recommended.

Really nice hostel and a great location! Great common space and easy to meet fellow travelers. Friendly staff. Clean enough i would say. Lock up your cash and belongings. Heard multiple stories about theft from rooms. Owner didnt want to be believe it is most likely one of his staff. Also, have to pay for water refills. Breakfast is nice
