The hostel is located in the old city within the colonial walls and is in close proximity to both the party areas on getsemania and the shopping, historical area. Viviana, one of the main staff workers, is a wonderful host. She is very sweet and creates a very warm atmosphere.

Had a fantastic stay at Makako. The hostel is in a great location inside the old city walls and perfectly safe to walk around. We stayed here during Christmas and had a lovely meal prepared by the owners of the hostel. The hostel has a great atmosphere and we met plenty of other guests, yet you can also get a decent nights sleep if desired. The owners were very friendly and we loved getting to know Vivian! Thanks for having us and we hope to see you again soon

Extremely friendly staff, great huge central common area and nice balconies to relax on.... If you're going to stay outside of Getsemani, this is definitely the place to stay in

The hostel was very good located right behing the walls in San Diego area. Make sure to book the 6 bed dorm as it has good AC. The staff was excellent .. especially Vivianne aka Vivi!! Relaxed and good atmosphere

A very friendly and helpful staff. They were always gracious and responsive to anything I needed. A very nice place to hang out and make friends. I recommend the smaller rooms because the air conditioning works better, and air conditioning is muy importante.

Great location, next door to one of Cartagena´s most amazing restaurants! (La Mulata) Big living room with lots of fans to chill out and the balcony was lovely. The staff cannot do enough to help you. They learn everyone´s names and offer you free coffee as soon as you appear in the morning! I felt very well looked after. Only downside is that I was travelling alone and didn´t find this such a sociable hostel.
