Casa Nativa is in the San Diego neighborhood, close to city walls along the Caribbean. This is a more desirable area than Getsemani, where most Cartagena hostels are located.The owner is fluent in English, very welcoming and helpful.
The sleeping area, two 8-bed dorms, is a stroke of genius. Each bunk bed has a locker built into the headboard; the keychain has an LCD flashlight for late-night access without turning on the overhead light. Each bunk has curtains providing privacy. A quiet wall air conditioner keeps it cool for sleeping. And the dorms have no windows, meaning they stay dark in the morning, another blessing.
Apart from the dorms, the only facility on offer is a tiny kitchen which doubles as a laundry room. However, there are no tables or chairs to sit at and eat...just a futon chair on the floor.
So Casa Nativa is a great and secure place to sleep, but it doesn´t offer the usual hostel amenities--common rooms; places to sit, eat, and drink, etc.
(Vegetarians rejoice: Cartagena`s two vegetarian restaurants are down the street from Casa Nativa!)
