Great place, loads of fun. Very easy to make friends and find traveling partners and trips.There is constant movement of guests in and out of the hostel. So much that you can easily end up without a bed if you don't make your reservations right! (I saw that happen!) If you go you can save a lot of money with a HI card. Although there is little shade in the patio in the day (watch out! Cartagena is hot!), and the beer is a bit expensive, there are tons of activities that make up for it, not to mention all the cool installations like chargers and free lockers in the dorms. The workers like the cleaning ladies and the maintenance guys are easy to approach and make you feel welcome there. The front desk staff are usually kept busy, but are very helpful and have a great smile to help in what ever need or question you have. Lots of them have great advice on inside country traveling, too.
