    The location, staff, and overall atmosphere of Makako made my stay in Cartagena so much better. Traveling solo, it was great to meet a group of people that were so fun and welcoming.

    Honestly the best hostel I’ve stayed in South America, just incredible. The friendly staff can’t do enough for you, incredibly clean, rooms have air con and the other travellers are really friendly so very easy to make friends if you are solo travelling - as there’s a huge common room. Also a perfect location located in downtown, can’t recommend it enough! Thank you for making my stay in Cartagena so wonderful.

    Makako hostel is amazing!!! The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are clean and I enjoyed the common tv room area to socialize. It’s not so much the facilities that’s something to write about, but the PEOPLE running it really make you feel special and welcomed the whole time you are there! I technically stayed there in 3 different occasions and they were accommodating and helpful even when the hostel was full! They really made my experience super easy and comfortable in Cartagena! Thank you!!!

    Probably the best staff i have met in a hostel so far, excellent atmosphere too - especially for solo travellers. Not the place to go if you want amazing facilities and they could do with more than one plug socket in the 10 bed dorm but overall great.

    Central hostel with lovely staff. Really easy to meet other travellers in the common area. The only cons are that the rooms and common area are a little tired looking and the rooms themselves are v simple with just bunk beds with power outlets by certain (not every) beds.
