We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and it was a really nice hostel experience. Located in getsemani, it is close to where all the party goes on at night and right next to the walled city. The rooms are rustical, but the AC is worth gold considering the hot temperatures in cartagena. The huge kitchen is a plus,... More

Omg... This hostel was such a headache to me. I've been traveling through south America for 8 months and this hostel is BY FAR the WORST! Rooms: no outlets, only 2!!!! Everything in the room is so dirty and so nasty, it looks like an abandoned house. Small lockers. Wifi is awful. No breakfast. Expensive hostel. Disgusting swimming pool. The... More

To put things into perspective a room without aircon and no breakfast cost 35 k. A room across the road at mamallena with aircon and free breakfast is 10 k less. I am not sure what the hype is about. . .

The location, rooftop patio and bar were awesome. The rooms kind of looked like prison cells and needed more fans, or AC. The one fan our room had was very high up because of the high ceilings and did very little to cool us down. The bathrooms could be cleaned more as well. Kind of a loud party atmosphere but... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and didn't really get too sleep, since there was a lot going on. Location of the hostel is great, the staff is very friendly, helpful and they will provide you with anything you may need for any excursion.

I would like to thank the whole Media Luna Hostel Team, they are truly hard-working and honest people, and can bring you a friendly and complete host service for young tourists visiting Cartagena for holidays or work. Special thanks to Mariane. It was great to swim in the pool every morning.

Good location in the center of Getsamani . The check in is 24h/24h wich is great if you need to find a place open at 3 in the morning after a long bus ride overnight. Not so good if you stay in the dorms and want to get some sleep. I was going to spend another night but decided to... More

This hostel is overpriced and survives purely from past reputation. The 30 mil pesos that you pay doesn't even include breakfast. The showers are invariably dirty, although inexplicably they close one level of bathrooms for 'cleaning' during peak hours (ie between 8 and 10 am when most people are trying to get ready for the day). There's also no real... More

Where to start? It is overpriced. The pool is filthy and uninviting. The rooms are beyond basic. The fridge NEVER had water to sell to customers. There were two computers for the whole hostel, which I imagine can hold over 60 people. The TV room was dreadfully maintained. The staff were rude, unhelpful, uninterested, or a mixture of all three.... More
