Inside the WALLED CITY, we are the ONLY Hostel with BREAKFAST INCLUDED & AC in all the rooms! 17 Privates rooms, 2 big green courtyards with BAR, salsa lessons & activities every night!

Voted best hostel in South America in 2013 by Hostelworld!

We are part of the best qualified chain of hostels of the continent! El Viajero is also in San Andres Island & Cali (Colombia) Uruguay & Paraguay.

Established in a typical colonial style house of the XIX Century; conveniently located inside the famous Cartagena's old walled city and only a few blocks away from the well known Fernandez de Madrid square and from the main attractions of Cartagena de Indias in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

We have 17 private rooms (some ensuite) with AC, Led Tv, and save box.

Dorms are clean, big and luminous. Each dorm bed has a locker for your belongings and also an individual safe-deposit box for your valuable objects.
We also have a very spacious and well-equipped kitchen, two colonial courtyards with beautiful gardens, common TV area with AC and Netflix TV.

We offer free salsa and champeta lessons, fun pub crawls and a great variety of activities. Our bar offers the best music and drinks until midnight.
We have worked extremely hard to pay very close attention to details to offer free computers with internet access, Wi-Fi, bike rental and travel agency with all the tours to do in town and it´s surroundings.

* Remember not to confuse our Hostel with the Hotel (also in downtown) with the same name . We are 'El Viajero Hostels' and we are located in the Siete Infantes street (tell the taxi driver the name of the street not to get confuse with the Hotel with the same name).
