Many good reviews and the great location made us book a private room for 2 nights. We noticed a strange smell which seemed a plugged in air refresher. Returning really late after dinner, it seemed an air refresher cover up for a vomiting previous guest. Tired we went to bed anyway and checked out first thing in the morning (after... More

Seemed like your typical hostel- a bit dumpy, hot and crowded. However, the location was great (right in the heart of the walled city) and the staff were helpful. The A/C dorm was hardly cold at all and was unable to be lowered to another temperature. The dorm was also very crowded, as you had to traverse over everyone's luggage.... More

This hostel is amazing. I won't even hestitate to call it the best place to stay in Cartagena, even in all of Colombia. The location - such a nice and safe street, just a few minutes from everything that a traveller could ever need. No noise by night at all. The staff is just wonderful, they do everything they can...

The makoko chill out house is defiantly a chill out place! I got there the first day in Colombia and got a warm and kind welcome from Vivi (the most wonderful receptionist in Colombia). Without asking my name or who am I, I was offered a coffee and a cold drink, a very good explanation where to go and what... More

From the moment you walk in you are welcomed in a very friendly manner with a cup of lemonade. You can ask all the questions in the world and they are very patient. They give you great tips on cheap eats and must sees in the city!! Great for backpackers who want to feel a great vibe! Clean rooms, bathrooms... More

The staff was amazing! They were definitely the highlight of the hostel. I stayed in all 3 dorms, 2/3 had A/C. The beds were so so in terms of comfort. My friend and I met a lot of people at this hostel, it definitely brings people together. With the people we met we explored around Cartagena and did some of... More
