  • Overall, happy with the value for money, their sister hostel MACAKO is the chill house, makako (a famous and awesome band from spain), describes it better, live music and performances on the plaza or restaurant below the hostel. This plaza is nice to check out from the awesome balcony. highly recommended to music lovers. Also a note to the hotel manager, beware people ignoring the signs not to plug phones into the computer, i saw a sketchy guy from ibiza maybe recording passwords this way

  • I enjoyed everything about the Chill House. The staff have been incredibly friendly and helped me navigate the city. I would definitely recommend Chill House to other travelers passing through Cartagena.

  • The location and staff are great. The bathrooms and rooms are not well maintained though.

  • It's in a perfect location, but the room for 6 person is noise and doesn't have air conditioning. There's a 10 beds room with air conditioning but without windows. So you have to pay attention in what you need, otherwise it can be really bad. The staff is very nice, gently and simpatico. But they are not ready to help with information. Depending on what you are looking for, it would be a good place to stay.

  • The hostel is not well-organised enough. One cannot kick out a client from a bed and put its personal things on the floor without notice (and there was here no reasons as I paid all the nights I stayed when I arrived). Also, in a situation like this, a word of excuse would be expected, which did not occur. Otherwise the rooms are correct. I would also recommend to close the doors and give keys to customers to improve the security, as the lockers are not big enough to put backpack inside.
