Location: It located in a brilliant part of the old city. Price: great price for what you get. Amenities: Everything that you need. General - whilst the rooms and bathrooms are a little tired they are completely functional and are comfortable. The staff/ owners are welcoming and full of great information including local eateries, transport etc. The pool and common...

I was very happy with my choice in Cartagena. There are not a lot of truly budget options, but this is a good one. It is right in the walled, old city and is walking distance to everything (everything is walking distance to everything, really). The hostel itself is very nice; all blue and white with two small courtyard pools...

I loved this hostel and stayed during two different visits to Cartagena. The location is perfect - right in the old town but not too close to the noisiest areas and within walking distance of everything. The staff were lovely and friendly, the dorm is comfortable and the living area is cozy. Not for those who want to party but...

Stayed here for 2 nights in February 2013. Apparently the budget accommodation in Cartagena is generally pretty poor and this is one of the best of a bad bunch. For Cartagena it's probably quite a good option, but compared to hostels in other parts of Colombia it's overpriced and not very good, which is why we moved on after only...

We really enjoyed our time at Chicheria. It can be hard to figure out the room configurations when using booking websites so here's the deal: you can stay in a mixed-gender dorm, a private room without its own bathroom (i.e., you share the hall bath with people staying in the dorm), or a private room with private bathroom. There are...

Was slightly hesitant to stay in a hostel, as usually stick to hotels. It was a really good choice and enhanced my stay in Cartagena as I met so many really interesting travelers. Clean, cheap, safe and a good location. I stayed in the dorm but they do have a couple of private rooms.

Cartagena is hot, really hot. So, if you're a budget traveller, you'll appreciate the a/c in the hostel's 9-bed (plus loft) dorm. You'll also appreciate the friendly English-speaking staff, which are willing to go above and beyond to find information for you on Cartagena and other spots in Colombia. The small pool -- perfect for a quick dip or sitting...

“We had the double ensuite room that opens onto the pool. IMO, that's the best one.”

“Dorm beds are of the three-story variety. They seem quite stable, but if you're nervous about sleeping that high, you might want to confirm that you can have a lower bed upon making your reservation.”
