As we knew we would be arriving in Bogota quite late at 1am, we thought best to book a place for the night. We found this place on hotels.com and the reviews for it was good. First of all, the map was wrong on the hotels.com website (that could be our fault for not double checking) so it was difficult... More

The room's are small and simple but clean and comfy which is all... More

We travelled to Bogota in October 2012 and had booked this hostel 4 months in advance and we got to Bogota in the dark. There was no sign and with heavy backpacks we walked up and down the designated street for what seemed like ages. Then someone showed us to the door and the owner opened saying that it's no... More

The place was not sceptional, but ok. Prices were quite good for the area. The owners were nice but not very proffesional. We were staying in a dorm that they use as a double when someone wants to pay extra and all our stuff was changed of room without our permission and supervision while we were away. They have as...
