Dorms are clean and very large. Showers are average but do the trick. Very quiet during the day but it picks up at night. Downstairs bar get quite noisy until the AM so don't plan on going to bed before midnight.

Hostel in the heart of Getsemani. Neighborhood felt very safe. Perfectly located for exploring an incredible city. A short walk to most of the city sights. Excellent drink specials. Great staff - Stuart was incredibly helpful.

Mamallena is definitely a party hostel. I thought our room there was not as good value as other hostels we stayed at in Colombia, but that is Cartagena in general. The 24hr AC is great, and everyone who works there is super nice and helpful! The day trip to Isla Baru was great.

Its a great hostel. Nice staff, lively when you want, quiet when you want, but a few things let it down. The wifi is ok at best. The laundry is a travesty, getting back broken or ripped clothes. But the hostel prices are reasonable for dorms (40000). Good beds, and 24hr AC. Also situated 5min from the old town.

The hostel was nice, right in the city center of Cartagena, I meet some interesting people there for to go out. The night life in the city is really exciting. Would stay there again. The baths were a little dirty but it's normal in a hostel.

Great location - in amongst all the bars and close to the clubs. We slept well here - the rooms were really cool and air con worked v well. The free breakfast is only pancakes, not massive portions, but you can add extras for a low fee. The communal areas are always busy and friendly - but you are made...
