Important Information

Please note:

You must reconfirm the day before your arrival by 6pm, or your reservation may be cancelled.

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.

Method of Payment on arrival: Cash or credit cards with a 3% charge

Please reconfirm the day before your arrival by 6pm or your reservation may be cancelled.

At Hostel Mamallena we pride ourselves on great customer service and providing a real backpacker experience.

We also provide three things that most hostels of our standard don't. Our airconditioning is actually turned on 24 hours a day, very rare in this city. And even though we have a bar, we still allow you to bring in your own alcohol! That seems to be less and less common these days but its sure to save you a little cash. The third way in that we are different is that we will let your friends visit you at the hostel. As long as they are respectful of our other guests, and try to consume some of our alcohol in the bar then they are more than welcome to come and visit you at Mamallena.

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.

Our bar is at the front of the hostel and usually open till 1 or 2am. We have a great deal of 2 for 1 drink specials that last all day as well as your normal selection of drinks. The onsite cafe provides a free basic pancake breakfast as well and lunch and dinner. If you'd like other options for breakfast they're pretty well priced as well.

We also have a guest kitchen, although its kinda small, dont say you weren't warned, Its not our fault, the building was built that way! Feel free to use it when you like, but if its as little under stocked its cause everything was stolen :(

If you like animals then you'll feel right at home here. We have our resident, and friendly, dog, cats and an apparent constant flow of kittens.

Come, stay with us, we doubt you'll be too disappointed.
