Casa de la Chicheria
Don't settle for less when you can have the best. Our boutique hostel is a cut above the rest. We offer services and facilities equivalent to some of the boutique hotels in the area, but at hostel prices. Before being a hostel this colonial style casa was a family home and we really like to keep that family feel in the house. We are one of only two hostels actually located in El Centro Cartagena. You can step out our front door and find yourself immersed in the cities culture and diversity, with hundreds of bars and restaurants offering flavours from all over the world. Come relax and experience Cartagena in style and comfort.
Casa de la Chicheria is a luxurious open plan house, located in the most exclusive part of Cartegena. It is a colonial house with modern facilities where you can enjoy the rooftop terrace or relax by the pool. It has a fully equipped kitchen and bbq area that is the perfect setting for a dinner party with your friends or the other guests. All bedrooms are air-conditioned to ensure your comfort on Cartagena's balmy nights.
We offer our guests exclusive access to activities including wake boarding lessons with a professional, private catamaran charter cruises, and access to a privately owned casa on the Rosario Islands.
We also offer tours run by local tour companies including charters to San Blas Panama, a ride on the famous Chiva (party) buses, city tours, and day trips to Playa Blanca or the volcano where you can pamper yourself in the mud baths renowned for their therapeutic and beauty benefits.
We also have laundry service, bike hire and complimentary Colombian coffee and internet use. Breakfast is an optional extra - we serve continental or a full breakfast.
