The Hostel was nothing spectacular, but it had everything I expect from a Hostel and really friendly staff. My room was equipped with aircon and was clean. The staff took good care of their guests. Big plus is the central position (at Plaza Fernando de Madrid), ideal to explore the historical town of Cartagena.

Best thing about the hostel is the staff who make for a really laid back and relaxed environment, they're super friendly and warm. The hostel has decent rooms, a lounge area and balcony and even a tiny bathing swimming pool. Not your most elegant hostel but perfect for travellers looking to relax and meet other people.

We stayed three nights in the air-conditionned room with two other friends. The staff is absolutely awesome, they're the the most helpful and kind persons we met in Cartagena ! The bathroom was clean and the cleaning lady was here almost all day, so I don't understand why so many people wrote that the bathroom was dirty. The water was...

We were very well recieved and welcomed at chill house backpackers! We arrived a day earlier then planned and they welcomed us with open arms. When we didn't prefer to stay in the 10 person mixed dorms because it was a bit crowded and stuffed, the gladly moved us to a private room. They were very flexible and helpful and...

We had a room at the front of this hostel that looked on to the street. It was sold to us as a private en suite - but it quickly became apparent that everyone else in the hostel was also using our bathroom which was quite annoying since they had not paid anything extra and meant that we had to...

This hostel has a lot of potential as it is in a great location and affordable. However, the cleanliness was poor -the hostel is well overdue a deep clean-i.e. Fans, beds, kitchen. Laundry service was good.

Stayed here for 1 night and it was awful. We had a private room and was advertised with air-con and with towels but the aircon didn't work (sooo hot and stuffy) and no towel. The door lock was broke so had people walking in our room and (presuming they thought it was the loo as it was directly next door)...

This hostel was really good. The rooms are okay. The staff, Dora and Carla, are very friendly. They're helping you with everything you need! And Plaza Fernandez de Madrid is my favorite square in Cartagena. Nice to have cheap diner, not too busy and close to everything. Great stay!

Good location is probably the only positive I can give this. I'm really surprised it's still in the lonely planet and it's unclear if it's changed ownership of late as the staff on site seem to have let it fall into disarray. The kitchen it pretty grim as are the communal areas and bathrooms in the private rooms. We payed...

The rooms are ugly, not much space and a bit dirty. The two bathroons are bad but the worst is the kitchen. The owner doesn't seem to care. In the middle of the night the AC got a problem and water came out. It also made a terrible noise. The comment from the lady at the reception was only: "Manana."
