This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This review is from a 28+, female perspective. It was loud (think blaring mariachi band at 3am in the bar below one of the nights), and shabby-ish facilities. Traveled in Colombia for 4 weeks, and saw far, far better hostels. E.g. 'Casa de Philipe' in Taganga and 'Casa Familiar' in Santa Marta. The only good things about the Chillhouse for us, were the great location in the old city, friendly staff... and I would always choose a private room over a dorm which we had, so that was good too. But, if you are young... go for it! You'l have fun for sure. Very social & friendly place.
