Myself and my girlfriend (mid-twenties), stayed here for 3 nights recently after finding it on hostelworld. Perfect for a short stay in Cartagena, located a 5-10 min taxi ride down the road from the historic centre in the upmarket Bocagrande area. The staff are outstanding; probably the most helpful and knowledgable we've come across after travelling around Colombia for a...

The hotel is very nice. The staff is extraordinary friendly and the breakfast is outstanding. The couple who runs the place is very kind. The hotel is colorful and has a caribbean vibe. To get to the beach you only have to cross the street. We loved staying here. Thank you very much for everything. Martin & Lisa

I was planning to stay in Cartagena for 2 months. Upon landing I wanted to have a safe, clean, well located, budget friendly hotel, while I looked for an apartment.

I was staying in Cartagena at the hotel pueblito playa for one week. Since it was recommended by a friend I already knew what to expect and didn't got disappointed, in fact the mere opposite.

We couldn't love this place any more. We originally booked for two nights then ended up extending it to five nights because we loved it so much. The location is perfect, smack bang between two beaches with one of them only 30m away and the other 500m away, the rooms are so nice and always cleaned so well, and the...

We absolutely loved our stay here. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The air conditioner and wifi worked very well.

If you're traveling to Cartagena, you probably won't find anything better than this place. It has AC and Internet and a fabulous complementary breakfast fixed for you by the proprietor himself. It's generally clean and quiet and almost on the beach.

We enjoyed our stay here. The location is great, right next to the beach. The breakfast changed everyday and was on par with top hotels. The week before we had been in the Hilton in Quito and Brian's breakfast was twice as good. Our room face the road which was a little loud but it's fine considering the cost. The...
