Clean, good location
I stayed here for my first 4 nights upon entering Colombia. It was easy enough to find and the location is great for exploring the "Centro Historico." The Exito grocery store nearby was very handy for grabbing snacks and liquor. I found the beds were made up daily with fresh linens, and the bathrooms were always clean. The common area was nice for relaxing and the kitchen was usually open for making a meal or grabbing a nice strong cup of free coffee. I only wish the main dorm had a rotating fan to supplement the AirCon -- otherwise no complaints. The staff were friendly and very helpful!! Don't forget to make sure you learn Spanish before you venture into Colombia!

Outstanding
From the moment we rang the bell we felt welcomed but, it wasn't until our plans changed unexpectedly that we felt the hospitality. We booked one night and the next two were to be spent sleeping under the stars at Playa Blanca. However, one in our party became ill the first night on the beach and forced us to return to Cartagena. Now even though they were booked solid they found a spot for us. The location is excellent, from there to the airport was 8,000COP and takes about 15mins. The hospitality we received from Sarah was world-class, after many long walks around the hot city she was always there with a smile and a cool drink in hand.

Relaxing stay
For being a hostel, I really enjoyed my stay. The ambiance was great and the staff was fantastic. Sarah, one of the hosts, was always there with a smile and willing to help us out. The whole scene there was relaxed and provided the necessary accommodations. There was a kitchen, TV, wifi, AC at night, three bathrooms to share with the rest of the house. Kind of the trickiest part but worked out. I like to call it an hipster's abode with hammocks.

  This hostel is a good find. Good price for its good quality. The Location Makako Chillout Hostel is located in the old walled city of Cartagena. It is close to little shops, market, and the actual city wall. Restaurants and bars are within a five minute walking distance. Although it may look like its close to a beach, it's not. To get to an actual swimming beach, you will have to walk for half an hour or take a cab for $5000 Colombian peso which is only around $2.50. Besides that, the location is perfect for sight seeing and having fun. Rooms and Bathrooms The rooms are clean and air conditioned at night time. The 6 person bedroom that we stayed at was small but sufficient. There is a closet to put non valuables in and a small locker area near the reception desk for valuables. There is also a 10 person dorm room and a private room option.The bathrooms are clean, but the water flow is weak and there are no hangers or hooks to put your clothes on. Common Spaces There is a large common area with a balcony. In there is a large screen t.v and a few couches around it. The couches smell like sweat and if the air conditioner is not on, it' gets very hot. The are limited fans that you can use. Other than the t.v, there are no entertainment stuff in this hostel. You will need to get out of there for fun. There is only one computer and wifi is not the greatest when you are in your room. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed, it doesn't really get too rowdy because people go out a lot. The kitchen doesn't have a lot of stuff in it, you are better off to eat outside. Summary Overall, I had a nice time in this hostel. The staff were extremely friendly and they know how to speak English. For the price we paid, it was was well worth it. I will come to this hostel again for its great location and chilled out atmosphere.
