Hostel Review: Hostal Casa Baluarte, Cartagena (Colombia)

Hostal Baluarte“Pretty good amenities for the price”
Considering the low cost, was expecting much worse (had been to a hostel earlier that was $5 cheaper/night but had no toilet seats, no shower head…just a pipe in the wall and sheets that looked way past their expiration date) but was pleasantly surprised as to the quaint environment. Looked at many of the other hostels in the area and was most impressed by the Baluarte.

Pos: Nice and clean, friendly staff, and close enough to the nightlife without being directly affected negatively (no blaring music at 3am).

Neg: No AC, bathroom was a little small (had to squeeze by the toilet and sink to get to the shower), but at least it was clean.

I’d say you get a bit more than you pay for with the Baluarte. If you’re simply looking for a place to rest your head for a very reasonable price while located close to the nightlife in Cartagena, the Baluarte would be a great choice.
