    Makako Chill Out Hostel is amazing! The people who run the hostel are so welcoming and helpful. We went out with them the night we arrived and they hooked us up with a free drink and entry to a bar. They helped us call taxis, navigate the town, and gave us great recommendations. Highly recommend!

    Super friendly hostel! It's a small hostel where you really get to know people and the trio that run the hostel are super friendly. They organise lots of fun things in Cartagena and are happy to help in anyway. They even let me come back for a shower after 2 days away in the San Bernardo islands! Would recommend this place to anyone

    Staff were very welcoming here and learn your name which is a nice touch ☺️ Awesome location in the Center of the touristy area and one block from an Exito and bus stop. ( You can ride the bus from the bus terminal all the way to Centro and walk 2 blocks to the hostel for like 3000 - get a local to scan their card and you pay them) Facilities weren’t the cleanest but fine for a few days! Lockers provided and air conditioned 6 dorm was amazing at the end of the day! Kitchen also for use☺️

    Super chill vibes, staff are super friendly and accommodating. We stayed for a night either side of a trip to the islands and was just what we needed and for a reasonable price.

    This is a great party place and you'll struggle to find more helpful, positive staff absolutely dedicated to giving you a good time. However the place is falling to pieces and massive amounts of refurbishment needs to be carried out. Sinks coming off the wall, toilets breaking, doors coming off, bunk beds almost collapsing etc. There are hostels with amazing facilities for a similar price however that said, they lack the atmosphere this place has. They need to invest in refurbishment!
