Beautiful place and the perfect location to walk about and really get to know “La ciudad amurallada”! Easy walk to most important plazas, shops, supermarkets.. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Cartagena. Most importantly I should highlight the hotel staff!! Nancy, you are truly an angel! Your warm welcome, your knowledge and professionalism is amazing; you truly made our stay a memorable one, you go above and beyond to make one feel at home and that makes all the difference. Thank you so much Nancy and we hope the owners know that with people like you in their team, it does make a difference. I want to also thank Edward and Luis which were always so helpful and kind even during late hours. The entire staff at Maloka was always gracious, customer service oriented and helpful from the moment you walk in the door. Thank you all so much for making our stay in Cartagena a wonderful one. Kind regards, Juan Veras Pola, New Orleans, LA.

We booked and paid for a double en suite room before heading to do Ciudad Perdida hike. Returned and checked in, only to find they hadn't kept an ensuite room for us! The guy we booked with really didn't care and we were offered no apology or discount. We found the whole experience disappointing and not sure how Maloka has such a good rating. Ended up finding a much nicer place and better value, so look around before booking Maloka.

We stayed in the Maloka while visiting Cartagena. The rooms are quiet and cool. There is a nice inner court where the complimentary breakfast is served and a roof top terrace for watching sunsets. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

We came across Maloka cafe and decided to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee. Needless to say the coffee was delicious but the cafe set up was also very nice. Order your beverage and enjoy it in their elegant and peaceful setting.

My friend and I weren’t even staying at Maloka hostel originally. We walked in to ask about Rosario islands excursions. Maria at the front desk was extremely helpful in explaining all the islands, booked it for us, gave us her number, and never stopped checking up with us to make sure everything was going well. She really went above and beyond for customer service. So we decided to stay at their hostel without looking up the reviews (they had one in Medellin on Hostelworld with high reviews so I assumed it would be the same in Cartagena). The beds were the best beds I’ve slept in a hostel. It was actually comfy and not super hard. The room and bathroom were very clean. The carrot cake is a must try there!! So delicious! Location was perfect. I wish we could’ve stayed longer. Thank you Maria for all your help!
