One of the 6 Best hostels in Colombia


Escape the heat of Cartagena when staying at Bourbon Street Hostel

located inside the historic walled city. Bourbon Street Hostel offers guest large bunk beds spacious enough to make you feel as if you are in your own private capsule. Each bed has electrical outlets, shelving, hooks to hang your towel and blackout, privacy shades that you can roll down when you’re just too tired to socialize with anyone or nursing your epic hangover from dancing all night in Cartagena lively nightlife scene. If you’re traveling up and down the Colombian coast you’ll get use to hearing people tell you “there aren’t hot showers available in any hostels along the coast” but to our surprise, Bourbon Street Hostel offered piping hot showers. So ladies and gents with long hair to wash and legs to shave, this is the place for you. All of Bourbon streets hostel bathrooms are private so that you don’t need to listen to anyone doing their business and you can get ready in peace.

Depending on what time of year you are visiting, Cartagena can get scorching hot to the point where sweat will drip down your back in a matter of minutes after going outside.  Bourbon Street blast the AC all day long so that you can stay cool when lounging on their property. To top it off they have a small pool where you can happily sip cocktails while watching tv.

Bourbon Street has an onsite restaurant that is open to the public. They offer hostel guest a discount on food and some of their beverages. One of the best things about the hostel is that you don’t have to go too far to be part of the action. Just walk outside the hostel property and you will be smack dab in the middle of all of the best things Cartagena has to offer. We stayed in many hostels in Cartagena and this was one of our favorites.
