My husband and I stayed there recently in a private. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Note that their English is quite limited so held to have a bit of Spanish knowledge when dealing with them. The location is great, it's near everything however note there is a bit of street noise if you have a room in the...

The good: price,location, friendly staff, breakfast is included juice and eggs w toast, breezy, safety boxes, clean. The not-so-good: if reception isnt around to stop them, anyone can get in off the street(but this seems typical for hostals), staff is friendly but not necessarily helpful (they couldn't tell me how to get to Santa Marta. They asked me to clear...

This is perfectly located in Getsamany (the historical center) but 10 minutes walking from the walled city. For less than 10 dolars/day (what is very cheap for Cartagena's average prices) we stayed in a 6 bed dormitory and had a good breakfast of scrambled eggs with toasts and coffee. Nonetheless, it seemed a little insecure once there is no key...

Good location on busy colourful street in getsemani - easy walk to old town. Characterful courtyard where you have breakfast ( really tasty scrambled egg with onions, peppers etc, toast and coffee). Rooms a reasonable size with good aircon. Bed and bedding comfortable and clean, but room itself could have been cleaner. Things generally a bit scruffy, but what lets...

Cheap, well located but loud and smelly. The wifi internet was insufficient to even check mail. The street out front was smelly of sewage. However the dorm bed mattress was comfy. Barely worth $9us. I checked out early and moved to Hostal Escalones which was MUCH BETTER

Hostel was cheap compared to rest of Cartagena. Staff were very helpful. Kitchen was okay but breakfast was good. We had the room without windows which wasn't great but the a/c was a treat. Don't think dorms have a/c.

This place is more expensive than most but worth it if you can afford it! The rooms are pleasant and have aircon and fans some private bathrooms. Also located really well in the tourist district within walking distant to most areas. Was a fun stay thank you to all the staff 😊
