We stayed in Cartagena for 2 nights. We were very happy to choose this Boutique Hostel , due to its great location. Our room was quite big and we enjoyed the colonial style and architecture of the building and interior. There was no hot water-...More

The hostal was full of surprises. The only disadvantage was the lack of elevator since we were staying on the 3rd floor. But apart for like the place was very good. Simple, clean, traditional decorating and perfect location. Excellent value for money.

Nice room, view and position. But..... No hot water in the hotel. No lift. There is a disco attached to the hotel, terrible and high noice. Be aware that you cannot sleep until 4am......it is pity. There is big space for improvement.

Thank Sergio S

Our room was private. I can't think where you could get a garden view. There is a rooftop balcony with some plants and a view of the water afar off, but no rooms opened unto that. I'd ask for a picture. That is the only... More

A short inexpensive cab ride to really good beaches. Not a walkout-and-you're-there location.
