We were 3 males in our 40s and were looking for somewhere well located and with the non-backpacker crowd. Hostel Santo Domingo certainly fits the bill! Excellent location, very close to all the main sites in the city. The room we had was quite basic, but had air-con and was lovely and cool. It is a very quiet place and had a good mix of Colombian, Latin American and overseas tourists. The hosts were extremely attentive and very friendly. They made us feel most welcome. We discussed places to eat with Andres, the owner, who offered to cook us an evening meal of two courses for COP 15,000 - extremely good value for the old city of Cartagena. We were treated to what was probably the best food we had during our 3 weeks in Colombia! It was so good that we opted for a meal there again the next night! The likes of a mixed seafood in pesto sauce starter followed by enormous avocados stuffed with prawns in a chilli sauce were offered and made at our request. It was also so refreshing to be served freshly made, piping hot patacones as an accompaniment! We ate it all along with fantastic fresh juices! Plus, their maracuya mojitos are to die for! The service was that of a top restaurant with great attention. We ate outside on the patio area. The breakfasts (included) were also the best we had during our trip. Would recommend the place without any hesitation.
