We stayed in the private room for our last night in Cartagena and could not have been happier with this lovely little hotel. The room is tastefully decorated, and the huge balcony was a pleasant surprise! The bathroom was also amazing. I would love to return to Cartagena and stay there again. Great room for a great price in a...

After staying here four nights, I feel like there are some core management issues at this hotel. One of the main issue is that there is no one “on duty” at the hotel until 12PM. That is a long time to have the hotel run on auto pilot, especially if you don’t inform the guests that this is happening. It’s...

I stayed there for 2 nights in the dorm back in March 2013. The dorm may seem very basic and the hostel lacks a common area for guests to hang out with each other. However my dorm has a tiny balcony where I can sit, chill, drink, and people watch. Because of that it was a very relaxing stay for...

For just a few extra bucks you can get the best room in the hotel, which is sort of like a normal hotel room; and very luxurious if you're used to hostels like me. The bed was comfortable and the balcony is a big bonus. The place is clean, and the AC works. The best thing about my stay here...

The bathroom is dirty, roaches crawling on the floor. In the middle of the night our toilet started gushing water and flooded our room. Then our electricity went out. We spoke to the owner, who blamed all of these things on the city. Not once did she apologize or try to make our stay more comfortable. After all this we...

The hostel has a great location, good beds, but the dorm room is very makeshift. The bathroom is dirty, and there is no shower head, so there is just a stream of water coming out of the wall. The dormitory also seems unsafe as it is outside the main building. there isn't really any communal space either.

The staff will organize trips to Playa Blanca, and are generally great, but not overly...

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at the Blue House Hotel for three nights in April 2014. We stayed in two different rooms and paid $88 a night. The Junior Suite was spacious. It had a small balcony and private bathroom. It was a nice room except for the many minor details - broken slats on the door, loose bathroom...

We experienced the hotel as unsafe, with unhelpful and untrustworthy staff when it comes to problems. We had a problem with a theft in the room and the staff accused us of faking the incident instead of helping us. We were treated very badly. Overall it was a very unpleasant and unfriendly experience.

Small, nice hostel at a great location. Especially the dorms where very good. Enough space with a little balcony, windows (for fresh air, which is not very common) a few central areas to sit down or relax, good internet connection (in general) and simple but ok breakfast. The staff was very service minded and helpful, which is an important thing...
