This is the first review I have ever written but I feel the need to. To be invited into a hostel by the gentleman who essentially perfected everything there is about no customer service what so ever wasn't a very good welcome. Seemed to be the consensus around the hostel as well. Hopefully you arrive while he is not working.... More

this was a great hostel to stay in. It was a great location with walking distance to everything you need. The staff were super helpful and friendly and the breakfast in the morning was cheap and tasted good. We stayed in a private room which was sufficient and was located further enough away from the main area so we could... More

This is a great hostel located a walking distance from everything.it is a great place to meet people. You can choose to chill out or party. The staff was very friendly. The downside is that it is not the cleanest hostel.

Stayed at the hostel in November. They also organized me an airport pickup late at night what I thought was very comfortable being exhausted from a long flight. Couldn't have chosen a better hostel to start my south american tour. It is located right at la candelaria and offers nice activities. Also the staff was nice and the prices reasonable.... More

Stayed here on March 14th , 15th and 28th 2015 Great hostel! Stayed here for 2 nights when I flew in to Bogota, and one night before I left Colombia. Beds are comfortable and dorm rooms don’t feel cramped like some hostels. Lockers have outlets for charging electronics in them and are nice and big. Bathrooms and showers feel private... More

The staff was very helpful when I needed to book a flight and couldnt purchase it online. They called the airline for me and made my reservation, even after a long wait on hold. The facilities are nice, a few different chill areas so you can socialize, watch TV, or be quiet and read a book. I am staying in... More

Enjoyed a lot to be there. The dormitory was spacious and the staff were nice. I stayed only one day but it looks like there is a nice atmosphere and I was able to meet more people travelling in the same place. Definitively recommand this place!
