We would love to host you in our beautiful colonial house, conveniently located in “El Centro” - Cartagena’s historic city center.

Here we have created an upbeat yet relaxed space to provide guests with a 'home away from home’. It’s a very welcoming house, with friendly people and good vibes, a place for you to chill out while visiting Cartagena. 

With 4 private double rooms is the house is usually buzzing in the morning with good people and holiday vibes. Mostly we hang around our huge table where we have breakfast in the morning or where we work during the day. It's generally pretty quiet when most guests are out exploring this lovely city.

The heart of the house features a large & well equipped kitchen which guests are welcome to use, and offers round the clock access to bottomless Columbian coffee! We also have a BBQ available.


High colonial ceilings & natural light create a spacious feeling and keep the room quite cool, though it also has A/C and a fan for your comfort. Every room has his personal and a unique flamingo. The ensuite bathrooms features a spacious vanity, a generously sized shower and is made up with fluffy white towels. Guests can make use of a closet with hanging space, and a flat screen TV for lazy nights in. 

DIY (Do it yourself) breakfast is included, this means waking up with: a fresh juice, coffee, a croissant from the best bakery, eggs, cereals/oats, milk, toasted bread with marmalade

What do our awesome guests say about say about Old City Oasis? Reviews are from Airbnb

“Wow! What a wonderful stay. We ended up booking the Oasis last minute and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. Great music and people who are always smiling is absolutely the best way to enjoy a vacation. Bram and the team were fantastic hosts that actually even inspired us in a few ways. They have another amazing hostel that is on the water called Casa En El Agua which we decided to stay for the weekend as well. You can also check that out online.”

“Bram and his girlfriend roos and the rest of the staff were just simply outstanding.. I checked in with a very high fever and the constantly made sure I was OK. location was perfect away from all the noise of the city yet a non walker like me could access everything on foot within less than 10 minutes Max.. great house, lovely pool and genuinely great people to stay with in cartagena.. I would always go back to them..”

We loved our stay at Old City Oasis so much that we decided to come back for another booking to end our 2-weeks stay in Cartagena! As soon as you walk through the doors, you are immediately greeted with huge smiles and awesome music that fill the home with great vibes. You truly feel like you're walking through an oasis here. Bram, Roos, and the entire staff are incredible and we felt so at home with them. They truly know how to take care of their guests. Thank you so much for making our vacation & stay amazing!


... are a Dutch couple living in Cartagena. We live 3 years in Colombia and 2 years in the Caribean coast now. We are always in for a chat, give you advice, or help you around. 99% of the time one of us will be there to meet you. We also have an hostel called Casa en el Agua in the san Bernardo Islands that needs our attention as well sometimes. So if we are there for a few days, we always have an amazing volunteer to help us out in the Oasis. 

We love to cook, drink wine, watch series, eat awesome food, meet awesome people, travel, go for a dance or just be super lazy in our pool. We have both traveled the world for multiple years and enjoy everything that comes with that.



We are also parnters in the following hostels. So make sure you don't miss them!


Discovering unique places can change your trip.. Profoundly. We believe the Casa is such a place. We’re talking a solar-powered, eco-friendly backpackers hostel run by our cheerful, local crew. The hostel sits among the San Bernardo Islands, just two hours by boat from Cartagena.



La Playita hostel, new island spot just off the Caribbean coast of Colombia, has an ocean front bar and spacious, modern rooms with a local feel to them perfect for Island life. The hostel is the newest on the Isla, opening for business at the start of 2016. La playita is situated close to the port, but feels secluded. Coconut palms and trees shade the yard, and a garden out back provides us with tropical produce.



The Humpback Turtle is a beach hostel / bar in El Valle, Choco on the Paciffic Coast. We offer beach side accommodation, restaurant, self-serv kitchen, full bar, and an array of tours and cultural activities in the area. Epic Surf, beach break and rivermouth!
