“Won't find better in Cartagena!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I loved this place but would hardly call it a hostel. This place is like a private villa! Super cool staff made our stay even better. Wi-fi is fast, nice kitchen, air conditioning and a small swimming pool made this hostel better than the bigger hostels in the area and it's still located in the old town. Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: 12 bed dorm, 4 bed and some privates.
