Great location, safe, and right in the middle of all the restaurants, bars, shops, and there's a supermarket 2 blocks away. The room and bathroom were kept pretty clean and the AC is turned on pretty early in the night and pretty late in the morning! The staff were friendly and helpful.

Makako was a great hostel! It's one of the least expensive in Cartagena but you still get all the amenities and the staff is friendly and helpful! The atmosphere is in the name, it's definitely a chill place to relax. Not a party hostel by any means but very clean and comfortable! The 10 person dorm has the best air con!

Good for a cheap hostel. Dorms cold at night. Close to everything. Only 3 bathrooms so bit of a wait sometimes. Food disappeared from the fridge daily and if you leave items in communal areas they will be moved by staff. Lovely friendly ladies that ran it but no computer and they mucked up a booking with another girl, when we returned from a night out they had taken our beds since we weren't there. Not ideal to have to sort that at 4am

I absolutely love this hostel! I've come back 3 times and honestly can say it's because of the girls working here. Truly charming! Sweet hearts willing to help you with your stay in Santa Marta, Spanish, or making you feel super welcome. It's a small chill hostel on the second floor with a balcony over looking a beautiful street. AC is on at night (like most hostels here) - all works good. Laundry service, beers, tv, couches, and lounge area. Amazing amazing place !!! Ugh and the beds- so comfy

Good hostel. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good location in Old Town. A/C works a treat. A bit dirty but that's the case with most hostels in the area, I believe.
