This place felt more like a hotel than a hostel - room was spacious but other than that not great - staff were friendly.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2011

when we woke up in the middle of the night covered in bed bug bites the staff told us "all the beds have them"!! he was aggressive and rude and moved us to a room where we were bitten even more. in the morning the manager said we were lying even though we showed him a bug that we caught and our bites

the mattress "protectors" were stained and dirty

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and had a very comfortable stay. My room had air conditioning which worked very well and was a great relief from the heat in Cartegena. The staff was amazing and were happy to help me with all my needs.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2011

The Good:
The lobby is very nice and charming. Beautiful courtyard with arched brick doorways. Nice seating area and small kitchen to use. THey have free wifi throughout which is nice too.
The price is good for small hotel.

The Bad:
They did not 'have' my reservation that i made through their very own website. I was happy to stay in one place for 3 nites and not move my bags. But they had to put me in their cheaper hotel around the corner where I had a tiny room that smelled like it needed airing out w/ no a/c. The owner promised the next day to give me a nice and quiet room on the 2nd floor of the Casa Hotel. When i returned after a day out, they only gave me a first floor room right across from the reception desk! It was always noisy wiht people coming and going. Plus the only window looked straight at the desk so for privacy i had to keep the curtains drawn. After their reservation mistake, i hoped they would redeem themselves, but they did not. Also my a/c in that room only seemed to have one temperature: freezing.
Also...keep in mind they have no hot water.


Mostly a nice place...Hopefully they will fix their reservation system for future. Just make sure you confirm with them!
