It's already the 4th time i'm staying here - and one of my favorite hostels on the caribbean colombian coast! My favorite room is the (only) one with balcony. Big, a lot of air and light coming in, and if u want it to b more dark just close the door. If u prefer something more quiet choose one of... More

We came to La Espanola after arriving in Cartagena with nowhere to stay, and were grateful to find somewhere at a reasonable price that actually had a private room for us. For those whinging about it - it's a budget place. You pay for what you get. The chap working there was very accommodating, and despite quite a severe language... More

Cable TV, book exchange, wifi, laptops available to use, balcony with chairs and table overlooking calle media luna. Kitchen had a bit of a problem with ants, our food was stolen from fridge but that's not necessarily the owners fault. Some staff members very helpful. Can book bus tickets for you and store bags. Great location in Getsemani, few minutes... More

This hotel was the worst hotel I've ever been in, I kid you not. Dirty rooms, bad smell all over, terrible service and just nasty behavior by the owners. Whatever request, big or small, was answered with total disregard. If you value your trip, stay away from La Espanola. Please.
