North Star Backpackers Hostel Cartagena Reviews
Good location! Oct 02, 2008
When looking for accommodation in Cartagena, I could not find anything that was in my budget until I found this place on Hostelworld.com
The location is great, being close to everything you need in Bocagrande. It is a couple of blocks to the beach.
I walked into the walled city of Cartagena in about 20 minutes.
The hostel itself was very safe and secure.
The first room they put me in looked like a tornado had gone through it. I could not tell if people were still in it or they had left.
It had an ensuite but it was filthy.
The man could tell that this was not acceptable to me and immediately brought me to a different room.
My new room was a little better but there was still trash all over the floor. I was just using the place to sleep and the bed was clean so I took it.
I had a roommate from Holland who was nice and fun to chat with. The air conditioning worked very well.
The bathroom was clean but with the heat and humidity, they could not keep it that way for long.
It was quiet the night I was there but I could sense that this was a good party hostel.
I would probably stay here again...
