Really enjoyed my time here (about 2 weeks whilst learning some Spanish). The staff are really friendly and they organised a couple of events while I was around which were all fun, as well as hanging out with us in the bar when they were free. Great location, ping-pong table, chillout room, kitchen if you want to cook, wifi, decent... More

I popped in here to ask for help booking a hostel in my next destination. The two ladies at reception were the most helpful polite and fun people I've met so far. They helped us muddle through with our limited spanish and their limited english and even gave us a free hostel guide all whilst laughing with us and generally... More

Was there during 5 nights and had a good time. Clean toiletts and clean rooms. Nice people that worked there. Bogota is veeery big so its hard to live in a good location, but the hostel is located close to transmileno station "las aguas". Walking distance to "the gold museum" and "the Botero museum. They have a cat walking around... More

Note: we stayed in Hostal Sue Candelaria - situated on Kr 3 #12C. There's a different hostel named Sue Backpacker, located on Calle 12F. They used to belong to the same owner, but are not connected anymore. It can be a bit confusing, which it was for us. However, we were surprisingly glad we stayed here. Since we're not that... More

This is my favorite hostel in whole South America... Location is in the beautiful Candelaria and it is close to Monseratte, Museo Botero and the Gold Museum. If you like...sit in the bar and kick back. The partybus is great but horrible for your hangover ;) It is very clean and the beds are fantastic (and made up every day!!!).... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Hostel Sue Candelaria. It's well equipped, with two great chill out areas, table tennis and a well stocked bar, perfect for meeting other backpackers. The staff are very friendly and helpful (thanks for all the help with my flights, Andrea!), and the hostel is very well located for lots of Bogota-based activities, such as... More

the first time, the staff lost our reservation, we went to another hotel. the second time we booked in another place but the owner was the same and we ended in this hotel. The "double private room" was a "privatized" dorm with 2 bunked beds. We could only lay down on our beds. This was not the most annoying. There... More

Nice place to stay. Location is very good and close to most attractions. Daily breakfast is a plus. However did not like the additional 10% charge for paying with credit card which is not mentioned before booking. Double rooms are not the biggest but are warm.

Stayed in Hostal Sue for over three weeks as I was new to Bogota and looking for permanent accommodation within the city. I returned to the hostal after having spent some time there back in 2010 and really enjoying the atmosphere. Can't say much has changed since then aside from the added bar located at the front entrance which is... More
