The chill house isn't the nicest hostel we have stayed at, however, an amazing location, and super great staff made up for a great experience!!. We are a traveling couple that still have the patience to stay in crowded rooms. We met fun people and had a good time. Dislikes: there are only 2 bathrooms, 1 being inside a room. Also, the Cartagena heat is unbearable at times (totally not the hostel's fault )
True to its name, this place is uber-chill, with a great staff and a lovely location, with the front balconies overlooking the mellow ongoing a of Plaza Fernández de Madrid. Social, but not an in-house party place while I was there.

Great location on a lively square, private room was excellent. Good air con, good Internet, very social common areas. Not many bathrooms for the dorms but private room had ensuite (worth it). Staff were super friendly and helpful - would stay again.
Great location inside the wall and near the docks, awesome staff and great atmosphere. If you are looking to have fun and meet nice people this is the right place. The only problem are the bathrooms, only two for a lot of guests, and one of them is extremely hot.
Perfect location, very fun and friendly staff, small enough that you can get to know people in the hostel, and there is a nice hang out area. Our room had AC and it was heavenly. Everyone there is definitely 'chill', and if I come back to Cartagena I will absolutely be staying here.
unfortunately they lost my pants and a panty in the laundry and gave me the bikini bottom and bra of someone else instead... two bathrooms for an entire hostel are WAY too little!
I had a really great time. The staff made the stay great. Though the other bathroom was in my room, I didn't find it strange having people walk in and out considering the hostel was small enough to get to know everyone. Will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Cartagena.
