Location is perfect, can't be any better, right near San Diego Plaza and just a short walk to everything in the walled city. Staff is able to help with the basics but its probably better to research a little before going there. Breakfast is included in the suite and was a perfect way to start our day. Room was very...

Well, I've booked me a place at the 8-bed dorm for 30,000 COP, which was quite cheap. And for what I"ve paid it was decent, but far from being great. Location is superb, inside the walled city, but staff seemed quite lost sometimes when I asked for a few tips about Cartagena. The dorm was decent, but it was so...

If you want a huge dorm room with mainly non-bunk beds, with balconies that open out onto one of the beautiful plazas in Cartagena one side and to an ancient cathedral the other then stay here. They also have plush private rooms and breakfast is included. The people running it are very sweet and it's not over run with sweaty...

Based on the reviews, we stayed in this hotel in Cartagena. However, we were a bit disappointed. The room is OK, the service it OK, but not more than that. The location is very good though, and there is a very good Italian restaurant close by which served good pizzas.

I loved the Blue House and actually moved there from El Viajero Hostel Cartagena, a block away, after figuring out that too many party nights, traffic, noise everyday along with bad smells was not going to cut it for me. El Viajero were happy to provide a recommendation for Blue house down the block. This was probably the best decision...

If you want to be woken by a church service at 6 a.m. and at night by people drinking at the hotel that don't actually stay there this is the one for you. Breakfast was delicious but we had to go to the kitchen to request it. Room was lovely. Reception area boiling and alive with mosquitoes. They probably come...

The Blue House Hostel is pretty much right in the middle of The Old City within the walls, it is located just near San Diego Plaza, close to heaps of restaurants and cafe's. The Vaults (The Markets) are a 5 minute walk away, great way to spend a couple of hours wondering through the market stalls seeing what they have...
