Very good hostel right in the center of Cartagena. Cheap, friendly with very useful stuff that does speak english. Wifi is free and all the transportation option are available.

Located within the Walled City, this beautiful hostel in Cartagena is a stone throw away from all Cartagena's main attraction. Only 30 minutes cab drive to the airport and 10 min walking distance from the docks where you can take a boat to the Rosario's island. A plethora of bars and restaurant with some of the best seafood and Caribbean dishes you'll find in Colombia. The property is clean, safe and the guys working at the receptions are going the extra miles to help you settling down. There is a pool, a rooftop a place to safely store your luggage. They have both dorms and private rooms which are lange and have air-con, private bathroom and TV. Strongly recommended!

ok, nothing spectacular. Fair for the price I guess. The location is good, that was the only bright-side. The reception guy ordered a taxi for me on my last day and it was pretty much a scamm. Payed 50 thousand colombian pesos for a 10 mins ride that costed me 15 when I myself got a cab from the airport to the hostel. One of the days they ran out of towels so I had to purchase one near.

Basic room. Great location and staff
Room looks simple but that's not an issue. Bed is comfy, the pool is really refreshing after a day out exploring and really good wifi which has been rare in my experience. Best part is the staff. All the staff I spoke with with were really friendly and helpful, if it was asking about directions to any other queries I had.

Too basic
This is definitely a hostel and not a hotel! The location is great, centrally located inside the walled city. The rooms are very basic, concrete beds, a tv and no other furniture. The bed is a bit hard and linens not clean. The entire hostel seems quite worn down and in need of refurbishment. Our room was not very clean either, the bathroom walls filled with spots and even some litter from previous guests on the bathroom shelves. There is also signs of mold. Even the bedsheets had some stains on them. They advertise a pool, but I did not feel comfortable using it, it did not seem very clean and is very small. If you are a young backpacker looking for a centrally located, decent priced hostel this is an ok option. I would not stay here again, but in my younger partying days I'm sure I wouldn't mind staying here.

Une bonne auberge à recommander
Une auberge type auberge de jeunesse, avec des chambres doubles et des dortoirs. Pas le grand luxe mais tout à fait correct par rapport à nos attentes et au budget économique. Service très agréable, souriant et attentionné. Un plus pour la petite piscine très apprécié.
