Stay at the El Viajero Hostel in Cartagena, boasting a strategic location within the famous walled city and a short distance to the Columbian Caribbean beaches and wildlife. Main attractions including museums, bars, cafés, restaurants and the nightlife of the city are also close by.

We are the only hostel in Cartagena with breakfast included in the rates and with air conditioning in all the rooms. In a colonial house, with the Old Town style, we have everything you need. Shared and private rooms, common areas with Netflix TV, Internet room and 24 hours free wireless Internet. Each bed also has a locker for your belongings.

The crown jewel of the Columbian Caribbean Coast is the National Natural Park of Corales del Rosario and San Bernardo without a doubt. It is perfect for observing colourful coral reefs in shallow waters. Travel 45km from Cartagena bay to reach this underwater conservation.

El hostal es muy bueno, bien ubicado. Es un poco ruidoso para los que queremos descansar, pero excelente para los que les gusta la fiesta

I did not stay at the hostel because I missed my flight from London. I fly out tomorrow 18th July instead and will start my holiday at Medellin. My only comment would be that I emailed the hostel asking for directions to get there from the airport bus, but they never replied. Regards, Bob Whitehead
