    Friendly staff, excellent breakfast : we could bake our own waffles. Excellent location.

    Rooms are small, airco was rattling but we could fix it. No window to the street/outside. Very noisy neighbourhood but with the airco on we were not disturbed by it at night.

    Stayed one night and the next day I looked for other accommodation in the same neighbourhood. For only a dollar or two more you can stay in a cleaner and more comfortable place. Breakfast was ok.

    The dorm I was in wasn’t very clean and not spacious. Not comfortable. Lots of ants everywhere, even in my breakfast plate. Not the best ambiance.

    So glad we stayed at Marlin Hostel, such a great place to stay, close to everything you need, super clean, amazingly happy and friendly staff who go out of there way to make sure you have everything you need and one of the best breakfasts we have ever had on our entire trip! they have cute rooftop bar with great priced drinks. We stayed in a private air conditioned room (life saving in the cartagena heat!) highly recommend staying at Marlin, it ticks all the right boxes for a great stay on Cartagena and has one of the happiest friendliest managers we have ever met!

    loved it all

    The staff were really friendly and very chilled out. We weren't given towels but when I asked no problem. The kitchen was really good. They had free salsa on Wednesday with the best salsa dancers in South America!

    The bathroom was quite small you had to sit side on the toilet to fit. There was a smell in the bathroom which meant it was unpleasant to shower. The room was quite small.

    Great buffet breakfast with cereal, eggs, fresh juice, waffles and avocado! Location was also great, really close to restaurants and bars.

    Could have a bit more of a social vibe. I didn’t find out there was a rooftop bar til my last night.
