The staff here were quite happy to help or offer assistance when I required it. It is a high turnover hostel so I didn't expect to get red carpet service. The location is great. It is safe enough to walk around the old town. The air on in the rooms works from 6pm to 11am, there is another air conditioned TV room though if you can't handle the tropical heat. Wifi is good. Breakfast is ok, the cut fruit is great but you have to be quick to get it, cereal is average but hey, it will get you through to 10/11am. The bar prices are decent but my one complaint would be the bar chick. Her head is so far up her "you-know-what" she wouldn't know what day it is. I would have purchased more drinks there if she wasn't so arrogant and cocky. I could go on! They don't do much about people coming home and drinking on in the wee hours but a set of ear plugs will solve that. They can offer tours from the desk which is more secure than organising them through someone on the street. We had three nites here then came back for another after playa blanca. I would come back here again, but just avoid the mole at the bar!

Really good option in Cartagena
I found the El Viajero hostel a good place to stay. I found the staff very helpful especially Alex. The rooms and beds are perfect with lockers under each bed and a security box. the aircon is a great bonus to have in what seems to be an always hot Cartagena. enjoy.
Fue placentera mi estadia en el Viajero la u'nica critica que tengo es el hecho que solo tengan dos computadoras sabiendo la cantidad de huspedes que tiene todos los di'as',hay mucha gente y para usar una computadora habia que esperar varios minutos por no decir 30 minutos o ma's.El staff es amable,demasiada mu'sica latina para mi gusto pasan en su hostel tendrian que variar la mu'sica y poner algo no tan latino.Claro que estuve comforme con casi todo,el aire acondiciondo es un oasis por las noches y la verdad es que funciona muy bien en las habitaciones. Les mando un abrazo grande y siguen adelante!!
