Nice hostel, was quiet during my 3 day stay. Good sturdy beds with large lockers at the head of the bed which I personally liked. Beds also had a curtain which gave your own space. Air conditioning was a welcome luxury in the heat of Cartagena. Overall good stay and staff went out of their way to help in any... More

I had heard great things about Casa Nativa, but was disappointed with my stay there. The hostel was dirty and cluttered, which could have been easily addressed by the cleaning staff they had there each day. The rooms were fine and the lockers were a good addition. The hostel was also expensive compared to others I had stayed at, but... More

I have travelled since March 2013 and when I was travelling in Colombia, I came back to Cartagena and Casa Nativa 3 times! The hostel is located in one of the best areas in old town. Love the curtains around the beds and lockers attached to the bed. But most of all loved the home like athmosphere in the hostel!... More

Nestled in the heart of the old city of Cartagena. The dorm beds were comfortable and had curtains for privacy, adequate size lockers to store your backpack. Bathrooms were average, but a lovely African Colombian lady would clean it at least twice a day. AC was turned on at certain times of the day but that did not bother me... More

The Casa Nativa Hostal is a very small hostal consisting only of 2 8-bed dorms. Beds are ok and there is airco in the dorms, which you'll like to havein Cartagena! The dorms are a bit cramped and lockers are uneasy to use though. The kitchen and bathrooms were not that clean during our first stay here. When we came... More

The hostel is in a great, safe location a block from the Plaza San Diego. The dorm rooms were very clean and the curtains for each bunk was a huge plus. The curtains provided privacy, plus allowed me to use my headlamp, without worrying about the light being bothersome to others. The built in locker in each bunk was nice,... More
