My experience at casa hobo was wonderful. It really felt like home for the week and the staff was extremely sweet. The beauty of the house was what made it feel like I was living in a dream. If I ever visit again, this will be my first choice.
Great location in the old city, very safe and accessible. The house was beautiful and the staff was always so nice and helpful. 10/10 stay!
Please do not stay in a generic hotel if you visit Cartagena! Stay in a historic home in the old city and get a real feel for the history and aesthetic that is this magical place. I stayed at Casa Del Hobo with four friends for a week. The house is amazing! Absolutely stunning! Wonderful pool right off the kitchen that was perfect on those hot summer days to cool off before having lunch. The rooms were tastefully decorated and had air conditioning which was a must considering how hot Cartagena can get. There is enough space for quite a large group to all fit comfortably (fits about 8 people) and since the house has wifi we did not feel the need to get data plans for our phones. The roof top terrace is a perfect hang out spot with lounge chairs, a grill and a relaxing jacuzzi. The help at the house were so welcoming and helpful. Iris cooked for us the entire week and the food was definitely 5 star. We paid her for her labor, gave her money for groceries and she took care of all the rest! The house has such a great location in the Old City! We could basically walk everywhere we wanted to go. Lots of restaurants, activities, museums, grocery stores, parks, etcs nearby. Getsemani was maybe a 17 min walk from the house, Café del Mar was maybe 6 mins away, and the main Clocktower plaza was a 10 min walk. We loved it! I have no complaints.
