The hostel was great! The receptionists were extremely helpful and kind especially John. The hostel’s shuttle to playa Blanca also included a boat ride to playa tranquila to their private restaurant for free! It was fantastic for its price and vendors were not allowed to be in the restaurant so you could leave your stuff upstairs. Not the best looking place, but it was right in the middle of all the cool spots and great way to make friends at night to go out with. Totally recommend!

My husband and I stayed at Hostel Mamallena for the second half of our week in Cartagena and wished we had known to stay here for the entire time! The staff was super helpful and friendly, we loved the convenience of the bar up at the front, and the back yard area provided the perfect atmosphere for hanging out with other travelers. Plus, everything was very well priced. I don't think our trip would have been quite as enjoyable if we didn't stay here, so if we're ever back in Cartagena, this will absolutely be the go-to place to stay.

I have stayed here at least 3 times over the last few years. It is my go to hostel in Cartagena! The staff are fantastic, the vibe is great, it's very social but not a massive party. Always people to meet and go out with if you're keen. Rooms are clean and comfy. Location is perfect. I had a last minute change of plans the other night and had to cancel my 2nd night there. They allowed me to with zero penalty after a bit of back and forth. The owner stuart is a gem! Great guy, great practices. I'll be back soon!

Super chilled hostel, looked really cool and the staff were lovely and would cook your breakfast. WiFi was good as well. The bar was really relaxing to have a beer in and play pool. Hanging in a hammock and chatting with people was nice. The private twin room was spacious, really clean, and pretty comfy. Really good location close to some shops and in a pretty safe area.
