Certificate of Excellence
A total of thirteen kilometers of stone walls, hundreds of colorful colonial houses, balconies, churches, flowers and nature filled-plazas. This is Cartagena’s walled city (also referred to as the old town), and this is where you will find el Viajero Cartagena, right where you want it to be. Start your day like any Colombian would, enjoying a hot cup of coffee with fresh fruit and more (Yes, breakfast is included!) and enjoy our free wifi to catch up with friends. Wander through the city, discover great restaurants in a laid-back town, and keep in mind, our bar opens at six, dance lessons start shortly after that! Join the fun, meet people from all over the world, get ready to go dancing to authentic latin clubs or rather bars with electronic music, and don’t forget to leave your things in the locker or safeboxes for extra security! Enjoy this vibrant city in a unique colonial house, home to travelers from all over the world. Cartagena awaits, start booking now!

We stayed in a private room in the hostel. The hostel has 2 parts -- the dorm area and then the private rooms which are located in an annex down the street. In the annex, only the people who were in private rooms had access and there was a separate breakfast area over there. This meant that the annex was very quiet and peaceful. Hostel was very clean and well cared for. The wifi in the annex was out for part of the trip, but we could easily use it in the main area of the hostel. In the main part of the hostel, there is a nice bar and hang out area. Definitely would recommend.

Great place to stay, really nice location in a quiet and pretty street but very close to nice restaurants, Exito supermarket. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a private double with shared bathroom which is in a second building, a few doors down. Nice room with AC, bathrooms were clean but only 2 between quite a few rooms. The kitchen looked awesome, well-stocked and clean but unfortunately we didn’t stay long enough to use the kitchen, or make use of the included breakfast which sounded good.

Evidently the air conditionning was not working at all as we were suffocating in the rooms. We expected that at leat rooms and bathrooms would be correct but frankly sheets were not cleaned and we had to accommodate them ourselves. In my opinion the rooms were overcrowed. Predictably roomies used to go in and out specially by night making a lot of noise and avoiding people to rest. Tipycally there were very loud parties every night.
