Honestly I never met any management.. I don't even think they are needed because these employees are awesome!! Day crew, night crew, bar crew... You are all amazing!! It's very clean, and ac is on all day!! Noise is minimal as they have a no socializing right outside the dorms policy. Excellent place to lay your head and meet some... More

Good location, service, rooms, showers and friendly staff. They also just opened another hostel in Rincon del Mar, which is awesome!!! Right on the beach in a little piece of paradise. Perfect for a relaxing tropical holiday on a budget.

Busy hostel with loads of people around and lots going on. Staff were very helpful when we had some questions, there's plenty of place to sit and and there's a load of books to swap if needed. The pancakes for breakfast were decent as well. We had a private room which was nice, comfortable and clean. After we stayed in... More

We were at another hostel before we came here to book our boat. Dee was so nice and friendly we decided to change hostels. The rooms are a good size and the air conditioning is left on all the time which is a big plus in Cartagena. You have a bathroom in the room but there are other bathrooms to... More

We spent four nights in Mamallena and loved it! We had both a private room and a dorm and both were really comfortable, clean and spacious. The AC works fantastically which is a must for Cartagena! Great social courtyard and super helpful staff who were able to book us buses, excursions to the Mud Volcano/Playa Blanca at good prices. Right... More

This is a better than average hostel located in the Getsemani area. It's outside the Old City, but only a 5-8 minute walk from it. The staff is very friendly and helpful and overall, the place had a pretty chill vibe. They also have an on-site tour agency and everyone was very helpful with providing information and helping set up... More

The staff was so nice and helpfull, and all in all the vibe is just good. Book in advance. *Make sure you visit the new Mamallena at Rincon del Mar -... More
