It was our first hostel in South America and it's suprised us how clean it was. The hostel is located just next to Plaza del Chorro de Quevedo in the heart of La Candelaria. Price was 20,000 COP per night in dorm, including breakfast, hot shower all day, towels, free wifi, free coffee all day and kitchen. They even make... More

We recently stayed here for one night with a bunch of issues. 1) We reserved a two-bed private room online (with a deposit) but showed up to that room being used. We got a single bed private room, which was fine, but the overbooking principle is not a great business plan. 2) The room we were given had been painted... More

Hostal La Quinta has a perfect location in Bogotá, only a 5 minute walk from two of the main bus lines through the city. It's perfectly set next to a bohemian square where people of all ages gather for theatrical performances almost every night. The hostel itself has nice bunk beds, although a bit shaky on the upper berth. There's... More

The hostel is located just 100m away from "El Chorro de Quevedo" -a meeting point for youth and tenagers for drinking- and just 10 minutes from the Museo del Oro. Staff is friendly and the rooms are ok. Very good value.

My husband and I reserved a room at this nice little hostel online. We liked the location and the way it looked. When arriving we were shocked to find out that they had no available rooms! Later we understood that overbooking is a standerd thing that often happens. They planned to transfer us to their hotel. The least we expected... More

From our arrival (late at night) I was impressed with our reception, especially as the receptionist at the time waited outside with me for my travel partner making sure everything with our cab payment was ok. We got a tour immediately, and were told to sleep in in the morning- not to worry about waking up early for breakfast. So.... More

The Colonial La Quinta is located on a great little side street in the historic area of Bogota. The rooms were very clean and the staff was great. Javier, the main staff speaks English and Nuvia, the cleaning lady prepares a great breakfast with fresh pastries every morning. We were able to walk to most places that someone would want... More

Initially I was impressed with reception, the young man that was there 24/7 it seems, spoke 3 languages. The room was okay, with windows facing the common area and windows facing the reception area, although dark. The only negative thing was that I paid with MasterCard, and left one day earlier than I thought, and they could not refund the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Very happy. Located in a great area which felt very safe. Lovely cafes and restaurants close by. Helpful staff. Good WiFi and easy access to the modern bus system. Shuttle bus from the Airport to Portal (or Porta) Eldorado station and take the K6 bus to the end of the line for 1700 pesos. The... More

We stayed here for three days in Bogota, off of a cool cobbled alley in the old part of the city (la candelaria). Very nice for a hostel, the private guest rooms are clean and fairly spacious and there is free breakfast and wifi. The free breakfast is pretty much eggs and coffee, with some bread and jam, however the... More
