Liked: The hostel has a nice party on wednesdays, where many tourists show up.

Disliked: Poor structureMy room had smell of mold, no ar conditionThe showers are very bad, some don't even have a shower, just a hole releasing waterExpensive rates for what's offeredStay there on wednesdays, because the guests can attend the hostel's party for free, and you don't need to get a taxi to go to the party.. on the other days, get another place to sleep

Liked: This hostel is really good. My luggage has been delayed and the reception let me use their phone several times to try to locate my luggage. They were all concerned about it and especially the receptionist Tatiana, even let me borrow some clothes to help me.The common are is good, kitchen is has good utilities and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. I would stay here again!

Liked: Nice pool, good TV room, decent bar, other guests were fun party-type people.

Disliked: The fans in some rooms were poor and Cartagena has sweltering heat and intense humidity. It was well overpriced - air-conditioned rooms in other hostels on the same street were cheaper than non-air-conditioned rooms in Media Luna. The drinks in the bar were a lot more expensive than the drinks at reception, and when the bar opened they wouldn't let guests buy drink at reception. The bar didn't open most nights with no explanation as to why. The staff weren't particularly helpful.

Liked: Pool was nice, very large kitchen and plenty of room to socialize with other guests. Also the Wednesday night party is so good that even Colombians get excited to visit Cartagena on Wednesday night.

Disliked: It's not worth the money, unless you're going to stay on Wednesday night to save the 10,000 COP for entrance to the party. No A/C, dirty sheets, unattentive staff, the lockers are a joke...I could go on, but I won't. It's clear they've been coasting on reputation for a while. Mamallena across the street is a much better hostel, with a better staff, better deals on beer and food, it's cheaper and you get A/C.

Liked: Well located, has a pool and a nice patio area...

Disliked: No air con! A must-have in Cartagena ... the bathrooms are terribly dirty at the end of the day, and the music from the bar goes straight to the rooms until 3 am ...
