My girlfriend & I stayed here for nearly a week. We stayed in the dorm because the private room was twice as expensive, COP100,000! We didn't have a problem because we met a lot of great people so it was nice to stay in a dorm for a change. Dorms are a bit like a white wash prison cell but otherwise all was good.
That's an awesome air conditioned tv room which was a great place to relax if the blaring Cartagena heat gets to much for you.
The pool was nice except ok our 3rd day they decided to start blaring out music all day long.
It wasn't necessary because everybody is normally really sociable so then you couldn't hear anybody. The music would be fine in the upstairs bar (if it were open any other day than Wednesday).
The "legendary" Wednesday night party was actually pretty awesome & we had a really great time but there weren't any other activities any other day of the week... odd for the biggest party hostel in Cartagena, the only sense of this you get is the amount of people trying to sell you Charlie (cocaine) on the street.
This sounds like a lot of criticism & there definitely is a bit of a confusion about what this place is trying to be but we did have a great time here & it was really nice just being able to chill out by the pool.
Recommended but doesn't live up to expectations
