due to some unforeseen circumstances had to make an emergency booking at a 15-minute notice, during the highest peak of the season in Cartagena, and this place delivered. This is a typical hostel, which charges you additionally if you don't bring towels and linen down to the reception at the end of your stay, the room was tiny, but served its purpose. And even if its freaking hot outside, the temperature inside remains at acceptable levels. Parking on the street, space may or may not be available, and if available, may require some acrobatics to fit.
This hostel is within walking distance of the old town, the main shopping street and the harbour. Could not fault it. Spotlessly clean, with double bedrooms as well as accommodation for groups, it has a roof terrace with sun loungers and views over the city. The rooms are spacious with good size bathrooms and everything seems to be very new. The staff were very friendly, speak English and know the area. We received a recommendation for a cafe (Buena Vista)to go to for breakfast (plus a coupon for 10%off) and this cafe, also within very short walking distance was absolutely fabulous. We went there on a Saturday and it was extremely busy untill about 9.30. On Sunday we had no problem getting a table. Our trip included the Roman festivities and we intended to sit on the tribune to watch the battle. (3 euro) However, when we arrived about an hour befor battle began, all the tickets had been sold. So I would advise anybody wanting to see this event to go try and get entry tickets as early as possible. as we did not get into the battleground (At the bottom of the university campus, we walked to the next event near the harbour and sat on the tribune there (free entry) and waited for the spectacle to begin. As this event was close to the harbour, we went to the underwater museum, which was free entry on Saturdays. In the evening we watched the procession through the main street. chairs are provided alongside the road and one can hire one for three euros, which is well worth it, as the processions are very long.. On Sunday we went on foot to a lot of the local sight seeing spots and found out that the castle on top of the hill (Not far from the Loop Inn, was free entry on Sundays) There are amazing views as well as interesting Exhibits in the castle. The whole trip to cartagena was amazing and we could not have wished for a better place to stay, especially if on a budget. Would return to the Loop Inn anytime.…
Myself and my partner stayed here for a few nights recently, we had a private room which was such good value for money. The bathroom and bedroom were spotlessly clean & overall more like a hotel than a hostel! It’s really close to all the tourist attractions in Cartagena too which was a bonus. The staff were kind & helpful, overall definitely the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! We’ll definitely be back :-)
The hotel is steps away from the bus interchange / terminal. It's also walkable to many of the tourist attractions like the Roman ruins. As for the hotel itself, I thought that the room design was so weird!!! Like, why is there a single bed at the floor level, and then two beds accessed by a single narrow ladder on the upper level?? And the wash basin and en suite toilet was on the floor level, so it was not the most convenient design, having to go up and down. Plus, there was no space on the upper level to put your luggage (or anything else for that matter), so I had to keep climbing up and down for stuff. Otherwise, there's nothing major that I didn't like at this hotel. Of course, the weather could have been much better. It rained for the entire duration that I was in Cartagena, so there was nowhere to go except staying inside the hotel. The slides are kind of gimmicky but I think the kids will love it... I had fun sliding down it once myself. The staff are friendly and the lounge / kitchen area is very clean, and well furnished. I ended up spending a lot of time there, just watching the rain and praying for the rain to stop.…
It has a perfect leisure zone with games, books and comfortable sofa. The rooms are clean. The shower is perfect and warm. It has clean kitchen full of useful stuff available to all guests. Lovely staff :)
It's a very clean hostel, it contains very clean rooms, common kitchen, sports hall and machines of coffee and juice. The staff is very helpful, they speak many languages as Spanish, English and French.
We were welcomed by a very nice man on the reception,spoke good enough English. We (2 persons) got a private room with private shower and toilet for 36euro/night. Everything was very clean and new. We had 2 floods bed 😁 The hostel is very funky, it has a tubes to slide down from the second floor to the first, had some fun 😊 Well done!
