Clean and convenient
Great place to stay if traveling alone. This was my first stay at a hostel.I rented a private room. Room was clean, linens too. The check in was quick, and the breakfast is tasty. The room included a flat screen tv and English speaking cable stations. Easy to find and close to a local supermarket in case you need to pick a few last minute toiletries. Cabs are available right outside the doorstep. You're only a few streets away from the main attractions. I would stay here again.

Cute and comfortable
Very friendly and helpful front staff that spoke english which was great for my boyfriend and I. You keep a running tab on your room from the coffeeshop/ bar which was convenient.The bed was firm but comfortable. Small bathroom but okay for our short stay. Overall pleasant budget option in old walled town.

Solid, comfortable stay but bring toiletries
It was a small room but comfortable. Temperature very easy to control on shower, which led to a better shower experience here than other places we stayed during our trip in Colombia. A/C was great, instantly cooled off the room, which is a big plus in Cartagena. Location is good, but really anywhere you stay within the walled city should be a good location because it's a 10 minute walk anywhere. Breakfast was decent, which included eggs, toast, fruit, juice and coffee or tea. If you have an ensuite bathroom, bring your own shampoo and body soap as it isn't provided. Also, room 206 has two windows but one is part of the door and the other faces a wall so perhaps another room has better views. We didn't mind though and enjoyed our stay.

Great location and service in Walled City
The hostel was in a great location for walking through the Walled City. The receptionist, Nancy was very nice and the breakfast was good too, especially the fresh fruit juices! Great value for the price.

Exceptional 10.0
Hotel staff all spoke English and were very helpful. There are lots of places to eat within walking distance (4-5 minutes) and a grocery store on the corner. It's easy to walk to all the sites within the walled city in 8-10 minute walk from hotel. Hotel is clean and safe and serves a different fresh, homemade juice every morning--delicious. It's a $5 cab ride from airport to hotel (just follow signs to taxi at airport). It's a standard rate so you don't have to negotiate a price at the airport. Wifi worked well.
