This is a great hostel for backpackers. It is very clean. It has excellent common spaces including a bar, outdoor patio, movie room, lounge, and dining area. It's in a great location next to a lot of restaurants and bars. Most people are up late here so do not plan on it being quiet before midnight. The common spaces are great places to meet fellow travelers. There's AC in every room and the beds were comfy.

The only issue we had was the water was off for 2 days while we stayed. The notices said this was a city issue and El Viajero wasn't the only one effected. El Viajero did provide two 2-hour windows to shower each day during this time, so it wasn't that big of a deal.

It is clean. Has some good trips you can book. They offer a wide range of different parties. But I never struggled to find sleep.
Good kitchen area and the free breakfast isn't too bad either.
Yoli, the girl at the reception did a great job. She helped me booking trips to santa Marta and was just always nice and helpful. Keep it up.
Gracias por todos.

Very good and clean hostel. A small breakfast is offered and there are many areas to chill out and escape the midday heat of Cartagena. A/C in all dorms or rooms makes the hostel even better. Only negative point might be that it is a bit pricier than most hostels (31000 for 8 bed dorm without bathroom). However, since staff is nice as well, a definite recommendation!

Hostel was pretty average, didn't love it but didn't hate it. the breakfast included was white bread, cornflakes, and fruit, with coffee milk and juice. They offer fun salsa classes on Friday nights for free in the hostel, and have activities you can sign up for through the hostel such as going to the mud volcanos. As well they offer bus services to places such as santa marta, but i found that it was nearly double the price than just going to the bus terminal and getting a ticket there. Rooms were fine, air conditioned at night which is nice with the heat. My main complaint was the staff, who were quite rude to us on more than one occasion, were overall not very friendly, and pretty incompetent.
