My husband and I came to Cartagena to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. Calamari Hostal Boutique was a great place to stay - the price point was awesome, the location was great, and lovely rooftop patio. It is important to have at least basic Spanish as none of the staff spoke English, but that's worthwhile to have wherever you are...

The best location, nice accommodation, I thought in my research it was the most cost benefit hostel in walled city. Please choose the private room with bathroom included, is the best I think because you have more privacy!

This is more of a boutique hotel than a hostel the room was beautifully decorated with amazing views. The location is perfect for the old town and overall it is just stunning!! A roof top deck with incredible views off the skyline .. honestly cannot fault anything except the minor issue of our shower being cold. Also special mention to...

We had a wonderful stay at the Calamari while in Cartagena. The location is excellent, in the historic walled city. We stayed at the Calamari on three different occasions during our trip to Colombia. Carolina at the front desk was amazing in helping us arrange travel and tours to other parts of the country. She even helped us out in...

Great location for walking to everything. AC worked great- as it is one hot city! Little noisy at night. I fell asleep instantly as I was exhausted but my sister heard what she said was a club next door. Staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend staying here.

Dunno where to start, perhaps by the improvement opportunities because they are few and far between: 1. Please have better sheets. CTG is extremely hot, a/c is amazing until late at night you are way too cold. Is nice to have the option to cover up more. On their defense, i never asked for a comforter, just assumed there was...

Well, Calamari Hostal is a hostel. So there's a little "roughing it" involved. Like: no hot water, no elevators (which makes 3rd floor units a schlepp) and - uh - limitations about the use of - um - toilets. But other than that, it's nice. Right near the wall in Cartagena's historic district, AC in our room (MASSIVE plus), roof...

We stayed in the suite and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Fabulous views of the historic centre, good facilities, very friendly staff. We didn't mind fixing our own breakfast. It was easy enough to find juices and fresh fruit nearby and keep them in the fridge provided. In fact we enjoyed having breakfast in the privacy of our suite. The room...

The staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel was beautiful, quaint and quiet, with an amazing view of the walled city and the Caribbean from the rooftop patio. Plus, it's a short walk to the wall, the markets and the incredible restaurants in the walled city. I loved our little balcony over the street and the huge stone shower!
