We stayed in cartagena for four nights over new year. We booked this place after finding out that media Luna was full. It was a great decision. The hostel was very clean, spotless really. The rooms were a little small, but normal for Colombian standard. We had a private bathroom.
This place is very affordable, centrally located and also has the benefit of not being two rowdy. If you are looking for a party scene, this is not your spot. If you are looking for a place to get a good night sleep, this is definitely for you. The best part is that you can have the wild nightlife down the street and then come home to a peaceful atmosphere.
One thing...the bathrooms are a little odd (all of the bathrooms where we stayed were a little odd). The shower was a stall shower, but there was no separation on the floor. Water would spread all of the bathroom floor. I saw this in a couple of places we stayed. I'm a bit of a neat freak so it annoyed me a bit, but each day when we returned the bathroom was spotless again.
