We stayed in nonAC dorm which was our bad - so hot and full of mosquitos. We go to bed early and are up early so the loud music right beside the dorm was a slight turnoff but the staff was nice and I think for more party oriented travellers it would be alright - not super clean mind you.
We chose to stay there on a last minute decision to go Cartagena. Location was excellent, situated bang on in the centre of the old town (full of toursits - very safe). However we chose a 6 bed dorm with aircon.. The aircon was only allowed for a few hours a night and therefore the room was absolutely boiling. The majority of the staff don't speak good English so when asking for directions or help they seemed to just laugh among themselves. One bathroom/shower for the whole place. Definite no no
Chillhouse was an amazing experience for me. Both the people working there and those who were staying there had positive energy which made it an exceptional experience for me. Definitely coming back one of these days!
It's a nice hostel and the guests and staff are friendly. It's not exactly chill as the music blares til 12 every night. There is often a wait for one of the two bathrooms, one of which is inside a dorm...not good. The view from the balconies is a treasure.
