    Hi Workawayers
    We are the beach House family, a completely new built Hostel directly at the beach nearby Cartagena. Our hostel is really familiar, there is one 8 bed dorm, a 4 bed room, a private and and a family room. We even have a kite school in-house where you can get lessons or rent the equipment. The calm beach, where you can kite surf, play volley ball or just enjoy the Caribbean life style.
    Now some more informations about who we really are and how we got to have a hostel in Colombia.
    We are two young and adventurous guys from Switzerland. Both of us decided to travel and learn Spanish here in Cartagena, Colombia at the same time. We decided to start a project together and opened up a hostel.
