Good location great friendly staff(most), however can be noisey. Stayed there for Xmas and New Year, and on New years eve had a lot of grieve from the night receptionist, we couldn´t sit in any communial areas after midnight (it was new years eve!), we had to either go on the street outside or go to our rooms, because of the noise we would make...however the bar in the hostel was closed, and still had music pounding, but we were going to disturb people.¿???

Good hostel with large clean rooms with only 4 bunkbed and a bathroom each. 2 dollars more and you trade the fans for AC!

This hostel is in a very good location. It is only a minute walk from the great Plaza de Tinidad and about five minute walk to the old town. It is located near some really nice bars and other hostels. They also offer many amazing tours, free breakfast, a cafe restaurant, and the hostel is very clean and nice. I highly recommend staying here if visiting Cartagena.

The dorms are big and airy. They have a good common room. The owner is a bit rude to the staff though. Otherwise, great location and free breakfast.

"Is he looking at me... I think he is, hmmm, this is weird. I might say something, have a word like, am I being stupid?" A brief insight into my mind when riding the public buses across South America. The token baby gawping at me in wonder has become the norm. I guess the combination of my pale skin, overgrown beard and top knot captivates …

After 2 days of open sea, it was a relief to get back onto dry land. This and the fact that we were now officially in Colombia – and therefore kicking off the 2nd part of my trip. After waiting around for a while at the port, we finally got on the road and headed to Malmallena hostel near the Old Town. It seemed as if half of our …

I really don't know where the last week and a half has gone, but I've finally found the time to sit down and put together my first blog entry about our incredible trip around South America!  First stop, Cartagena (pronounced: Cart a hen ya) on the northern coast of Colombia. Upon arrival in Cartagena, we didn't know what to expect. From all of …

Heat heat heat! Our bodies won't know what's going on with these temperature changes. We didn't understand why the hostels were all promoting air con, then when we arrived we realized. Until now we've been ending extra blankets! Our hostel is a wooden cabin in the town with a pet parrot and all lounges outside the to bring the rooms together with …

The Wall

Cartagena town was very cool. The old town is surrounded by a wall that was built to protect the town from pirates. For the majority of our stay we spent our time walking around inside the old town or around the surrounding walls. I expected to find some nice beaches here but we never did. They could have existed, perhaps we didn't look hard enough …
