The first person to help us there was very rude and unhelpful. Felt like we were being spoken to like dogs. The location is not bad but was also over priced and the rooms were not even that nice. Sorry to say guys, but if you want to compete, you should pull up your socks.

This hostel is really hard to find. Room are a bit outdate. Because its in the centre of the city its charges to much for what the room is really worth. Al the rooms are triples, so they charge you for 3 persons. I won't recommend this hostal, aldough is has friendly staff.

Family group of seven stayed 26/12/15 to 2/1/16. For a hostel the provided a kitchen and place to store breakfast food items. Manager and staff were very attentive to matters needing attention. Matilde always a smile. Highly recommend. Remember you get what you paid for. A returning customer with family.

I have been there for only one night. It is way more exensive than any other hostal around (I paid 70.000 COP per night) and I am pretty sure they gave me the most expensie room (single room) although I asked for a dorm (which was definetly available). The AC worked fine but the fan which was also installed in... More

The location is good in the city centre, but very very noisy. The staff is helpful, relax and nice; but the rooms are really bad with high level of humidity and dark (no windows) and the bathroom is private, but in pretty bad state. Internet is working in the garden and in the rooms ar least in the one close... More

If you are looking for atmosphere, location and value, this is the place to stay. Is it as luxurious as the expensive hotels that surround it? No, but it also doesn't cost over $100/night. This is the third place I've stayed in Cartagena and the first one I've really enjoyed. The owner and staff are friendly and attentive. The location... More

We read the mixed reviews but booked in and stayed 5 nights! Loved it here, very relaxed, good breakfast. Andrés and his family are all lovely, helpful, and made us feel at home. They have been running the hostal for just one year and made many improvements and are working really hard to continue improving everything. The entrance and courtyard... More

They don't charge much but you can do much better. Stay in Getsamani and walk to Old City. I have stayed in cheap hostals but not one this depressing. The inner courtyard is nice but the mosquitos drive you to bed early, then the morning staff disavows the availability of the promised breakfast.

Big disappointment. Very dark rooms without a windows. It is in a nice street, but for the price it is really not a place where to stay. The staff was also quite relaxed and it give us time to convince them to stop watching TV and show us the rooms..

I stayed at the santo domingo during my trip to cartagena. The hotel is simple, nothing fancy or posh but was a good priced option to avoid a dorm style hostal room. I found the staff to be lovely and helpful, the location central, the advice of the receptionists was always stellar. Not fancy but does the trick
