El Viajero Cartagena Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Inside the WALLED CITY, we are the ONLY Hostel with BREAKFAST INCLUDED & AC in all the rooms! 17 Privates rooms, 2 big green courtyards with BAR, salsa lessons & activities every night!

Voted best hostel in South America in 2013 by Hostelworld!

We are part of the best qualified chain of hostels of the continent! El Viajero is also in San Andres Island & Cali (Colombia) Uruguay & Paraguay.

Established in a typical colonial style house of the XIX Century; conveniently located inside the famous Cartagena's old walled city and only a few blocks away from the well known Fernandez de Madrid square and from the main attractions of Cartagena de Indias in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

We have 17 private rooms (some ensuite) with AC, Led Tv, and save box.

Dorms are clean, big and luminous. Each dorm bed has a locker for your belongings and also an individual safe-deposit box for your valuable objects.

We also have a very spacious and well-equipped kitchen, two colonial courtyards with beautiful gardens, common TV area with AC and Netflix TV.

We offer free salsa and champeta lessons, fun pub crawls and a great variety of activities. Our bar offers the best music and drinks until midnight.

We have worked extremely hard to pay very close attention to details to offer free computers with internet access, Wi-Fi, bike rental and travel agency with all the tours to do in town and it´s surroundings.

* Remember not to confuse our Hostel with the Hotel (also in downtown) with the same name . We are 'El Viajero Hostels' and we are located in the Siete Infantes street (tell the taxi driver the name of the street not to get confuse with the Hotel with the same name).

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great location, rooms are very clean but they should clean a little bit more often the bathrooms because there is a lot of people staying at this place. Anyway, it is very clean.
Staff is helpfull and they provide you lots of information.
Air conditioning works really well, and believe me, that is very important in Cartagena!!
Breakfast is just OK, I would add some eggs or ham and cheese, but it is quite good.
Lot of people staying on their owns, so it is easy to make friends!! It has 2 backyards where you can spend your time just reading or relaxing in a "hamaca".
I would definetily reccomend this hostel!!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Perfect place to stay very safe to know Cartagena & the Colombian Caribe Coast, really good turism support & great promotions & discounts, see the web page near to good bus & taxi (comunitary transportation, yes, taxi that you share, if you want, with other turists & natives that go to the same place as the Bocagrande Beach, or the Laguito), Two supermarkets so you can cook. Really good front desk staff, very attentive, Thank you & well, Enjoy!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The rooms were clean and well thought out, with lockers under the bunks. The breakfast is included in the price and consists of cereal, bread and jam with coffee or tea and juice. All in all a nice place to stay, and good value if you have a HI card. The only downside is that it feels a little impersonal.
