This hostal is clean, in a nice location in the Getsemani area. but it is not economic considering the other choices. Anyway you got everything you need here: internet, 24h service, a nice patio to rest after your Cartegena's tours. Nevertheless, next time I will pick something else

The good: -Value for the money was there, getting a private ensuite double in a good location for C$100K. -Room was clean and well taken care of. -Air conditioning was cold. -Location in Gestemani is good with lots of budget restaurants and bars nearby. -Quiet. Not much outside noise, partying, and couldn't hear the street. -Felt safe. Neighborhood was decent.... More

We stayed 8 nights in a private double en-suite room after the Air BnB accommodation a few blocks away in Getsemani turned out to be a total nightmare. Casona's location is pretty good, right in the heart of Getsemani, close to lots of cheap and fairly good restaurants and bars. The standard wasn't amazingly great, but was the best of... More

You can get air conditioned dorms for 25000 pesos, which is a great price in Cartagena. The staff is friendly and there is a cute patio where they serve a complimentary fruit, bread, juice, and coffee breakfast. I've stayed here and many other hostels in Cartagena and this one is, by far, my favorite!

Location great as its in the heart of gestsemani. Staff super friendly but there were stinky sewer works and our ac broke on the second night. Decent rooms and a good communal area.breakfast is average just fruit and bread with coffee.

Stayed in a different hostal for one night, but it charged additional $COP 20,000 for AC which you will need in Cartagena, so we moved to La Casona. I found it was reasonably priced, it was three of us, so we opted for a private room. Rooms were small, but clean. Very basic hostel, but adequate and a short walk... More

A private room cost us COP$68,000 (without aircon - it was 79k with aircon, but we did not need it). I thought this was overprced for what the place was. The rooms were clean enough, a little small though. All of the rooms overlook the courtyard, which means that if there are party people staying and sitting outside, then it... More

The location just outside old town in the backpackers area is great but thats where the positive stuff ends. Rooms are small and noisy on some levels. Courtyard looks cool but does not invite to hang out in and they are really missing the trick with the roof terrace they have (so much potential). This in combination with being heavily... More

We were here over new year and it was the only room we could get at short notice. The price they charged was 3 times the listed price and more than we have paid for any other room in South America, may be due to holiday season though. The room was tiny and musty and I was bitten in the... More
