The hostel is located in the heart of Getsemaní, one of the most popular neighbourhoods for travellers, just a few meters from the majority of the tourist attractions, 10’ from the airport and a short walk from the beach. We have different areas to chill and hang out with other travellers, such as a hammock area, TV room, a complete kitchen for our guests or a rooftop bar where you can rest after a busy day visiting our beautiful city. We are also available to assist you and organize any kind of activity you are interested in, we have many around Cartagena and all are worth it!

Because we are also travellers and we know how much you love a GOOD BREAKFAST, we focus on having the best breakfast in all Cartagena and we think we did it well!! Como to delight our delicious BUFFET OR A LA CARTE BREAKFAST and enjoy as much as you want of our variety of fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, cereals, colombian coffee, natural juice, toasts… we promise you’ll love it!

The house is one of the most historic in the neighborhood with renovated installations and offers good service. We have private and shared rooms with cable TV and bathroom inside, which is an added bonus for the comfort of our guests. And yes, we know our bathrooms are small (due to the charming antiquity of the infrastructure) but we still think we prefer a bathroom inside instead of going out to find one in the middle of the night :)

Marlin Hostel is the ideal place for travelers who want to truly explore Cartagena de Indias. You will enjoy an excellent location for any kind of activity you’d like to partake in. It’s a friendly, warm and interesting ambiance where you’ll meet people from all over the world and be able to share and hear travel stories, learn languages, make friends and grab some drinks while the laughter and good vibes permeate throughout the common areas

    Das beste Hostel Frühstück in Kolumbien bislang! Reichhaltig und vielseitig ;-) Nachts sehr ruhig und doch in dem besten Viertel gelegen.

    One of my best stays in cartagena! Really friendly staff especially Melissa and José, nice vibes and rooms as well. There is lockers, AC also during the day and the breakfast is good, too. Location is perfect in the barrio getsemaní, near the Cafe Havana. There is plaza Trinidad right 2 blocks and historic centre walkable by 5 min. I would definitely return to this Hostal!

    We absolutely have had a great time in Cartagena. A wonderful place. Especially with staying in the great located Marlin Hostel, which made our sojourn perfect. The staff is super nice, friendly and very helpful. The double room is a bit small for two people and sometimes it gets loud but I guess it is usual and in general not a surprise in Colombia. But it is not a party hostel, so you’ll get sleep;) Above all they offer a free, huge and delicious breakfast! I can really recommend this hostel.

    The Hostel is right in the city center and was really nice for the price. The staff wasn‘t really helpful. They organized a BBC which we thought was quite nice but it was quite a rip-off. We payed ten pesos each for two sausages and a potato. The breakfast was really nice tough. The room is quite smal but all good but you coudnt close the bathroom door. All in all its a good hostel for a few day and a quite cheap way to stay somewhere in carategna but I wouldnt recommend it for a longer stay.

    positive: nice & helpful staff really great breakfast close the the most interesting points in the old town rooftop bar negative: small room with no window and walls like paper: you hear the music of the bar and the street and every spoken word on the floor as well as if the neighbor couple has a hot night ;) so I could only sleep with my headphones. for this it‘s in my opinion too expensive compared to other hostels

    Die Lage des Hostels ist sehr gut, das Frühstück lecker! Leider wars das Zimmer aber dreckig und arg schimmelig. Das schlechteste war aber die Mitarbeiter. Unmotiviert und desinteressiert haben sie keine Auskünfte gegeben und wollten teure Zusatzprodukte verkaufen. Taxi Transfers zum 5 fachen Preis, Ausflüge zum 10 fachen. Hat man diese Angebote nicht angenommen wurde zur Revanche die Abrechnung gefälscht und man bezahlt mal eben 50.000 COP mehr als vereinbart für das Zimmer.

    + perfekte Lage! - sehr unhöfliches Personal - statt dem gebuchten Viererzimmer haben wir ein Fünferzimmer erhalten - sehr dreckig - Wifi ist defekt und langsam - Frühstück ist nicht wie auf den Bildern Allgemeine Infos: -Zimmer sind sehr klein -Klimaanlage kann nur von 18.00 bis 11.00 Uhr benutzt werden, funktioniert jedoch einwandfrei -Locker vorhanden Alles in allem waren wir leider überhaupt nicht zufrieden mit dem hostel. Besonders das Personal ist sehr negativ aufgefallen.
