    I loved my stay at Makako-Hostel!! I highly recommend it to everyone that visits Cartagena alone or with friends. The localization is perfect. Also Alin and Mati, the guys that run the hostel are the best. They made me feel very comfortable, helped me with everything and where the funniest people to hang around or party with. Mati cooked everyday and his food is DELICIOUS!!!!! I never ate outside haha. The Argentinian empanadas, his pizza and burgers where my favorite! Would always come back!

    This was probably one of the best hostels I have stayed at. Like other reviews have said, it's not much for the facilities. But, it easily makes up for the staff; Alin, Matias, and Ana; and the hostel does live up to its name of it being a chill hostel. You ever need a favor, the staff will always go the extra mile to get things done for you as far as tours, logistics of traveling, or just wanting to have fun. Plus the location is a plus too. Highly recommend it!

    The two Argentinians who run this hostel are what make it special. The location is also perfect! You don’t have to be LTGBQ to stay here. It is a place open to all. If you want to have fun and live in the moment this place is for you.

    Staff is super helpful and friendly. Room AC was a lifesaver. The cleanliness wasn't exactly top notch though... room smelled kind of smokey and the bathroom wasn't super clean.
