Hostel has cool design going through the whole place- beds and dining table made out of cool "shipping box"material, beautiful roof top terrace with jacuzzi. Bathrooms are nice and clean. Good breakfast with pancakes. Enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend!!
Had great time at Big Chill. It's like a home away from home. Truly. Location is perfect for the best beaches in Lagos and easy distance from town. Walk from the bus/train station is about 30min but easy. Beds are nice and sturdy. Showers and bathrooms are good!! Kitchens are well equipped!! And Paolo- one great guy!! Recommend!!
Hostel is easy to find, good location. Staff friendly and helpfull. Rooms are spacious, bunk beds are sturdy and comfortable. Biggest dorm is divided with a partial wall so the feel is NOT like "canned sardines". Hostel has well equipped kitchen! Theres plentyof cheap eats round town and the hostel offers a daily dinner too. Theres bathrooms outside dorms too so no need to queue for showers. Hostel provides a lot of information bout other destinations along bus times and connections. Recommend!!
Absolutely loved the hostel! Staff is very friendly! Facilities are clean and good. Beds are comfortable and rooms have aircon- lovely warm air for the cool winter nights! Kitchen is well equipped. I booked one night and ended up spending many more. Great HOST to make you feel welcome!! You CAN´T ask for a better place!! Highly recommend!!
Hostel is in a beautiful building on a nice and quiet street not far from anywhere. Beds are nice and sturdy. Breakfast, simple with toast and cereal, is included. Kitchen on the other hand is tiny and all the people trying to fit in there at the same time is a big mess! For the summer there are beautiful patio areas and sunny rooftop terrace for people to enjoy but at winter the space is very limited. You need to ask for your LINEN- theyŕe not given automatically. Can recommend! Value for money
Nice comfortable hostel with good facilities, lovely location very close to plaza nueva. Beds are comfortable and lockers are good size. When I was there free pasta and rice were provided! Definately good value for your money.
Hostel has a really good vibe- easy to meet other travelers. Location is suberb. Rooms are spacious . Theres enough bathrooms and showers and they're cleaned often. 24h reception and great staff! Good pillows!! Kitchen is a little small but sufficient!
I highly recommend this hostel. One of my favourites. Great breakfast. Great pillows and comfy sturdy beds. Bathrooms are cleaned often! And to top everything - Felipe is one great man!
Hostel was pretty basic, apart from the amazing breakfast! Staff was good and helpfull! Ensuite bathroom gets busy in big dorms. No much space in the kitchen to cook for yourself but theres cheap eats on the island. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend the hostel to others!
Not too far from the bus station but by walking is not the easiest to find. Their dinners are decent for the price- mostly very convenient when returning from day trips. Not enough bathrooms. Staff good and efficient. Beds are comfortable! AC works!! Basic hostel with a very good breakfast!
Amazing and knowledgeable staff. Not enough bathrooms when hostel is fully booked!! Breakfast is very good!! Bar in the hostel has reasonable prices. Guest kitchen is basic. Supermarket and town with all the bars 2 blocks away. Easy to get to from downtown and easy to find from the terminal in lagoa conceicao(tilag)
Good and clean showers/toilets. Beds nice and comfortable. Good breakfast included! Clean and fully equipped kitchen! Small homelike hostel with perfect location!!
Rooms are spacious and toilets decent. Towels ans soap are included- so is breakfast. Staff is nice and helpfull. Easy access to the airport!
A nice little hostel with a little kitchen for guests. The cheapest room option is 4xtriple bunk beds in a garage. Beds are very sturdy- so no problems when getting to the top bunk. Shared toilet and showerfacilities are in different floors then the cheapest room- but you get what you pay for! If want better room and facilities just pay couple of dollars more and upgrade to different dorm. Toilets and showers are kept reasonably clean and the staff working there are friendly and helpfull!
This is a very beautiful hostel- more like resort!! Theres no common kitchen, and food is quite expensive in the hostel but theres cheap eat options in town. Bathrooms are clean and nice! Beds are comfy and rooms big.
The hostel is not in the old town but in a residential area! Area is very safe and supermarkets close by. There is a beach just around the corner- which is more local then one on the hotel strip! Hostel has no sign outside but numbers are clearly marked. The place has more home like feeling than a hostel. AC in both dorms which is a nice touch in a hot city like Cartagena. Jon the owner is quite a character- gets very friendly with single ladies but all in all very harmless and helpful!
Beds are big and comfy, staff (at the moment) very helpfull and sweet- they'll do what they can to help at any situation. You get free scrambled eggs with the breakfast included! Bathrooms are cleaned everyday!
Activities arranged by the hostel were very good! Hot showers!! Bathrooms are reasonably clean. Rooms are spacious and lockers big with electric sockets inside.. Beds are comfy and you get two pillows! When booked through hostelworld you get different color wristband- meaning you're treated "VIP" because you can leave a review of the hostel..
hostel is very beautiful! They have decent size lockers. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are kept clean and tidy but lack space- getting dressed is a challenge. Walking tour and free salsa lesson by jesus were great!! Over all a very nice hostel
Booked 16 bed dorm- ended up in a 20 bed dorm. Didnt really mind- the room was divided into two parts. There were 2 showers and 2 toilets in the room- but nobody cleaned them during our 4 night stay and the facilities got quite dingy. Staff was nice and helpful.
Only few toilets for a relatively big hostel. Kitchen facilities are too small too for the size- fortunately the hostel wasnt full when we're there so we had no difficulties there. Location is very good! Close to all sights!!
good size lockers. Bathrooms clean! Close to metro- easy to find! Free brekky!!
hostel is still in under construction but when ready hostel is real good! There is not much space for luggage- few unlockable locker/cupboards where you cant fit much. Free wifi in rooms is good too!!
very good hostel all together. you get to meet lots of ppl. bathrooms are good and unisex- staff has habit of cleaning the facilities rather early in the morning so might have to wait for a little while to get in.
Best value for your money! The hostel is very cheap. There issue with keys as you need to ask a member of staff to come and open the dorm rooms for you and sometimes they are nowhere to find. Beds are big and comfy and no signs of bed bugs. No lockers and placing valuables to hostel safe cost money. Laundry service very expensive- look for cheap laundrettes down the road (7000-10000kip)
Bathrooms are small and not very tidy. Beds were comfy and clean. Altogether it was ok experience!
They claim to have 24h reception but apparently it only works when you let them know what time you're arriving. My train from singapore was cancelled and I had to take bus from Johor Bahru which is a lot faster than the bus had been. I arrived good few hour before intented and before the seception opened- fortunately guesthouse next door was kind enough to ahve me there waiting and I even got a cup of tea!!
Rooms were slightly crowded and theres no lockers. Internet didnt really work. Location is v good. Ladies have 2 toilets and 3 showers and the water from the showers spreads all over the bathroom floor. Staff is nice and the people friendly.
