    Im not gonna leave a bad review because I don’t want to ruin there rating but also seriously this hostel was so incredibly dirty I ended up moving hostels. My bed looked like the sheets were never changed and the bathrooms looked like they haven’t been cleaned in over a week... was not a comfortable place to stay at all.

    I'm normally too lazy to leave reviews but for Makako I make an exception. One of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in! It's quite basic but the staff is AMAZING and the atmosphere is so chill and social at the same time. Matias, Alyn and Anna are the best hosts ever and make everyone feel welcome and included. Nice extra: they shared dinner/breakfast with me at times so I didnt have to cook :-) I can recommend this hostel to everyone, thank you guys so much for everything!

    Pros: Staff/owners are great friendly people that will help you with anything you need and are keen to make a welcoming atmosphere. We stayed in a private room which had aircon that we could use anytime which was nice in Cartagena. Cons: The whole place is pretty run down. I know it’s spot cleaned by the staff but it’s needs to actually be professionally cleaned. The fridge barely works so all the lukewarm food in it provides a constant gross smell. The couches and sheets are well beyond used.
