At Hostel Mamallena we pride ourselves on great customer service and providing a real backpacker experience.
To improve that experience we have just finished installing air conditioning in all of our dorms and most of our private rooms. When you book a room at Hostel Mamallena you now receive air conditioning!
As a backpacker you choose a hostel for the atmosphere, the value and the information provided to make to make the most of your trip. We have plenty of space to chill and meet others, and just relax in the heat of the day. Our staff can provide all the information you need to know about what to do in Cartagena and how to continue your journey. We can make bookings for buses for onward travel as well as trips to Playa Blanca and Santa Marta/Taganga.
All our rooms on HW have private bathrooms(including dorms) and most are pretty spacious. We dont consider ourselves a party hostel, but were not boring either. Theres usually something going on in the patio or the bar. Wednesday is party night on Calle Media Luna, right in front of the hostel. Its pone of the best nights out in Cartagena and theres usually plenty of people at the hostel enjoying it before heading out.
We provide a kitchen for those of you who want to cook your own meals but we also have our own cafe and bar. Theres great homemade hamburgers and french fries and pastas.. Breakfast is provided free and is pancakes and syrup. All day is happy hour with 2 mojitos for 15 000 pesos, as well as other options.
If you like animals then you'll feel right at home here. We have our resident, and friendly, parrot, dog, cat and an apparent constant flow of kittens.
Come, stay with us, we doubt you'll be too disappointed.
By making a booking all foreigners are considered to be buying a tourism package, which allows you to avoid a Colombian tax of 16% on top of the price of the room. To receive this you need to present your passport on arrival and sign a form. If you are not able to do this then we will unfortunately have to charge 16% on top of the price shown here.
Colombians are unable to purchase this package and must pay 16% IVA on top of the price shown here.
Disculpanos pero todos los clientes con cedula Colombiana deberian que pagar IVA de 16% encima de los precios mostraron aqui en Hostelworld. Si tiene pasaporte extranjero es posible a comprar un paquete de turismo que no es sujeto a IVA. Disculpanos los molestos pero es el ley de Colombia.
