I've stayed in a couple of other hostels in Cartagena and this is the better one. Staff is always friendly and helpful, clean kitchen, nice change with pancake breakfast, good rooms and comfy beds, easy to meet people, they don't mind if you bring your own alcohol, many tours available.

This was a very sociable hostel and so meeting people is extremely easy. There is also a decent kitchen and a nice communal area. It is also located very near to the Old Town and gringo bars.

I have really enjoyed my stay here at hostel papaya. The staff are so friendly and the hostel is kept really clean and the bathrooms are really nice. It attracts really friendly guests, or at least that was who was staying when I was there. The location is great, opposite the plaza where everyone hangs out. Also its a less than 10 minute walk to the old town. The bathrooms are kept really clean and the water is actually quite warm it think because of the weather being so hot! Air cons work well at night. I booked a tour on the morning of the tour and the receptionist walked me to the boat which was really nice of him. I would highly recommend this hostel

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.

This is a beautiful colonial building with tiled floors, built around a courtyard. It has two open air terrasses overlooking the nearby streets and city. Its very close to the famous Havana café, and Il Balconi restaurant. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, drinks and breakfast are very reasonably priced. Rooms cleaned daily. Its a lovely quiet hotel.

Aircon in the rooms at night, you just have to ask to turn it on and it keeps the room cool which you need in this heat. Good kitchen facilities and nice thorough fair of air with a breeze to keep it cooler during the day. You're directly on the beach but in front of a rocky area, but you just walk down the road a little and you have beach, easy access (like 500m maybe). Internet was mostly really good. Occasionally it dropped out and the guy would try and get it working, but majority of the time it worked and worked really well. Shower was great.

The atmosphere of the place is very particular all the decoration is in recyclable materials . the location is in getsemani the best place to stay in the old city . The street is very safe as the hostal is in front of a police station. In conclusion a good place for the money paid.
