For the past 7 days I've been happy the call the North House Hostel my home and would recommend it to anyone on a budget. It really is amazing value when you consider fast & free wi-fi, cable tv, unlimited hot water, cooking & laundry facilities, and overall friendly atmosphere among the guests (who come from all over).

I really liked staying here...it was clean, comfortable and the owners, Jose and Oscar, were very friendly and helpful. It's also close to the Zona T, so it was very convenient for a friend and me to go out for a nice dinner overlooking the park. I hope you give North House a chance. You'll be happy you did.

I stayed in this hostel at the beginning and the end of my trip in Colombia and it wasn´t a problem to leave very much of my luggage there. The staff, especially Oscar is super helpful and friendly. I think the place has almost everything you need: Clean and good facilities (although the showers weren´t very good), fast internet, a... More

A quiet hostel. The staff were kind of awkward and acted more like guests. Quite quiet. Good cleanliness. Showers aren't the best but do the job. Good kitchen. Decent value. Excellent location. Good value. Very safe area. Rooms are decent enough, although some are quite dark. Make sure you bring a lock for the locker!

Located in a very safe area of Bogota, North House is a nice place to stay if you actually want to wander around on your own after dark. There are plenty of shops and bars in the immediate vicinity, and the pleasant Parque Virrey is only a short walk away. Tends to have an older than usual clientele. Downside: very,... More

What a wonderful experience. Better than I had imagined. Inside you´ll find very friendly and knowledgeable staff (good English language skills) and a very clean establishment. The kitchen and social areas are large and fully equipped. Great backyard with lovely, lush flowers for relaxing, chatting, having a smoke. The rooms are pretty standard hostel bunk-bed rooms, but there seemed to... More

If you want to stay somewhere safer than La Candelaria in Bogotà then the Zona Rosa area is probably your best bet. It's a really smart modern area and the streets seem really safe. There are loads of malls, shops, bars and restaurants. The downside and reason most backpackers choose La Candelaria is that things round here are comparatively quite... More

In large Latin American cities, there is a "price to pay" for being located in "the high rent district" (which in this case refers to "Zona Rosa"--the preferred location for enjoying nightlife in Bogota). North House Hostel "bucks the trend" through offering the same low prices for dorm beds as found in Candelaria (historic city center), while offering a safe... More
