Liked: The hostel is in a nice area.

Disliked: Staff was impersonal and the ambiance was far too noisy, far too late. Overall gave off the feeling of me being just another asshole in town for a day, gone the next, let's try and see how much of our services we can jam down their throat. The layout of the place makes it way too noisy at night. It's too expensive for what it is. The overall high rating of the place is misleading,

Liked: Big hostel, chilled. When the AC works from 6pm in the rooms it's great.

Disliked: Always dirty showers, most staff are rude and lazy. Everything seems effort to do for them or answer. I'm not sure if It's their natural tone or if they don't mean to but often they come across as rude even if not indented. I think it's overpriced and there is not a vibe. I hoped for a party atmosphere staying at the weekend. It was pretty dry with no atmosphere. It's not a party hostel for sure. Also had to wait one day to get a pillow sheet and wasn't impressed at having to put our own sheets on the bed especially when this is one of the most costly hostels.

Liked: Only stayed one night so didn't really get to know the place. Appreciate free breakfast, good wifi, good common areas, seemed to be a lot happening.

Disliked: Would have been nice with another cereal option, not just the sugar coated ones but not really a complaint since it's included.

Liked: Private rooms were in a separate quiet building across the street. Mine was the largest I think and with ahuge window ooverlooking the street. Very close to the sights and also one of the more quiet beaches.

Disliked: Everything was satisfactory

Liked: Great location, strong aircon in the rooms was appreciated! Safes in the rooms are a great idea. There was a good breakfast too and overall a nice chilled atmosphere!

Disliked: The staff could have been a lot more helpful. Its also cheaper to book the hostelOnline than it is to book at the desk. Given that it's quite expensive you want to get the best deal that you can so this makes a bit of an unnecessary chore out of extending your stay!

Liked: Cool place. Price is a bit higher than the rest of Colombian places but I guess that this is Cartagena.

Disliked: Would have been nice if the where electricity sockets near each bed and not just two for the whole dorm room.
