“Great budget option”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

I stayed in the hostel for new years, booked it a couple of weeks before and was lucky enough there was availability, there were really helpful in making the reservation since I abroad. The room although it was not spacious it was cleaned every day and included breakfast. The location is perfect for going out and walking the old city and Getsemani we were late every night and always felt safe to walk to the hotel.

Room Tip: Would pick the rooms in the upper floors.

I spent a night here in a private room with bathroom on the ground floor. Rooms are basic, and somewhat clean, but they could certainly be kept better. Front desk people are nice and helpful enough, breakfast is not good - the fruit was frozen! - and in general there is little atmosphere for solo or hostel-type travelers. It is an ok place to crash for one night, but nothing that calls for me to return.

Room Tip: A room on the second floor may be better. I think no rooms have real light, only windows on the inte...

Hotel prices for a poorly run hostel. The location is good but the rooms were cramped, noisy and dirty (don't be fooled by the overpowering smell of cleaning products). Staff were unhelpful. There are plenty of better options in the amazing city of Cartagena.

We looked a round a bit at cartagena hostals/basic hotels and we thought this was the best deal we could find when we were there.

Positives:
- Ours room and sheets were clean (and was cleaned every day)
- Location was good for walking old town
- a/c worked well and didn't feel excessively noisey
- Good price
- room didn't have a really damp smell, as did many of the rooms we saw in cartagena

Negatives
- we had room on ground floor and early morning this could get a bit noisey
- there are no blinds/just windows with sticky stuff to make them not see through (questionable how well this worked!) - this means that some light comes through in morning.
- water in shower was quite cold (as with all budget places in cartagena)
- not a hostel atmosphere, it was more of a hotel. ie. no common area to hang and meet people as such, apart from reception area which isn't very loungy.

Overall- if we were in cartagena and looking for a cheap base to sleep and do trips from we would stay here again for the right price

The rooms are small, a bit dirty, and the bed sheets quite stained. There was one towel for 2 people, and no hot wAter. Very basic room. Great location though. Staff are ok, not very friendly or particularly helpful. We had no idea when to check out. Bring mozzie spray for the room.

Stayed there for two nights. It's comfortable, quiet, the staff is friendly and the location is quite good, but it's not a place to hang out and meet fellow travelers.

Probably a good option for business travelers on a budget.

Room Tip: The only way to go up is through a tight spiral staircase, so I recommend staying in the first or se...

Great location! A block from cafe Havana! And walking distance to the wall! This place was clean, updated and wonderful! The staff did not know English so Spanish is a must. My room was impeccable and comfortable. The one gripe (and I am picky about this) was that the window was frosted white without a shade, so the hallway lights made it so the room didn't get very dark at night. The staff were lovely and the fresh fruit in the morning was a nice touch. Also, the roof patio was relaxing.
