Yesterday we (me and my friend) arrived at the Chill-Out Hostel Cartagena, we directly booked and paid for 3 nights. We mainly trusted the Lonely Planet advise (which stated that is a great place to stay) but it was the most horrible night ever! First it was absolutely not clean, but okay. Second, there was no air-conditioner in our room...

Plus n2: No bed bugs. But thats it. Negatives: * gros kitchen. Ants all over. I tried to make myself a sandwich , but ants were on my chopping...

We came up against a number of problems with this hostel, escalating from them not responding to messages or phone calls before arrival, and culminating in staff becoming rude and aggressive when we brought up our issues with them in person. We made our booking 3 months in advance, and a day after making it attempted to get in contact...

Our beds (which we booked more than 2 months in advance and confirmed the previous day) were given to someone else and we had to find another hotel (at 11pm after a 16hr flight). When we complained and asked for a refund the receptionist was incredibly rude and even threatened to resolve it by fighting my boyfriend! We never got...

This is an overpriced sh**hole. They charge a lot for a hole. Staff is rude and they only care that you pay their overpriced bed. Only one bathroom for all rooms and not so clean. The only perk is the location as its unbeatable. Avoid it at all costs.

Stayed in the four share private, it is a bunk bed and a double bed which was fine as we where 3. Good air con and private bathroom. It isn't beautiful by any stretch but did the job just fine. Cartagena was generally more expensive and the zone the hostel is in is beautiful but pricey. The number one thing...

The facilities of the hostel are very basic and nothing extraordinary. It is cheap and situated right in the centre of the city. What made my stay at this hostel awesome was the great reception I got from the super friendly staff! They were so kind and we had some good talks. Recommended.
