Apart from not having many bathrooms, this hostel was definitely one of the nicest I've been too. Loved the atmosphere and the people there, all really cool! :) Gracias a las chicas de la recepción para hacerme unas vacaciones inolvidables! :*

Great hostel for the price. Super friendly and trustworthy staff. Cleanliness depends on people sharing room. Rooms & bathrooms were cleaned VERY WELL on the daily bases. We stayed in 10 bed mixed w/ air cond & bathroom inside. It was packed during most of our stay. I had reservations about booking this hostel after reading prior reviews on bathroom availability, but no complaints to report - they were available when needed. Lockers are tiny/oddly sized. A small notebook/tablet would not fit.


Staff should be more involved had to wait around all day for a ticket only to be told they were not coming until later that night wasted my day thanks for that


No big lockers - only tiny lockers in the common area that can hardly fit an iPad. Doors could not lock either and anyone could walk through the gate. So security is a major issue. Kitchen facilities were pretty good. Location was perfect, very close to a nice little square. Very little space in the dorm, but a well working big fan.


Great location, dirty kitchen with not enough supplies, could use new sheets, but for the price and location a good choice in Cartagena


Very friendly staff and great location with nice balconies to hang out at night

My stay at Makako Chill Hostel was awesome. The staff is extremely helpful and are willing to assist you with all your needs. The Bathrooms and rooms are cleaned daily allowing for a clean environment. The location is dead center in the Centro Historico and minutes away from the party district and a supermarket only a block away. I have no complaints. There is wifi and access to a computer here. If your a simple traveler like myself, you have nothing to worry about.
