This project called LIFE IS GOOD CARTAGENA HOSTEL, which we see today become a reality, reflects the pride I feel to be the adoptive son of this city. During the construction phase of this project we used materials of the region, local labor, artistic talent and professionals from Cartagena. Every detail of the building was designed with the comfort of our future guests in mind.

The decoration and artwork tells the story of a beautifully multicultural city, proud of its indigenous and African roots while looking optimistically for a promising and fair future with its inhabitants. Cartagena is undoubtedly called to recover its place as the true jewel of the Caribbean, but this time not for its architectural beauty, its military strengths of colonial origin or its natural attributes, but for the human warmth and friendliness of its inhabitants that permeates everything we do and who we are. I hope from the bottom of my heart that you enjoy your stay in our Hostel and that at the end of your vacation you can become like me,an ambassador of the noble and beautiful city Cartagena de Indias. The place where I found love and the one I am proud to call my homeland!
