Employees playing guitar at 2am. Party all the time despite the supposed "be quiet after 10" rule. Cigarette smoking inside during breakfast (also against their "rules"). No lockers. Room door could barely close. Bathroom fixtures falling apart. Their breakfast is stale bread and rotten fruit. You're better off without breakfast, as you'll have to go out for a second one...

I went here after seeing it recommended in the Lonely Planet, which was a huge mistake. My girlfriend and I booked a private double room, which turned out to be right next to the bar. The walls are paper thin and they play music until the early hours, so sleep wasn't an option. I got out of bed to go... More

My boyfriend and I checked in to a private double room. It was basic but seemed fine - until my boyfriend found broken glass on the floor. Despite being half empty, they'd also put us in a room right next to the bar, which is very noisy and open until the small hours. We asked to move and the next... More

Why this place is recommended by lonely planet is beyond me. The 10 bed dorm where we stayed was smelly and cold. The threadbare sheets you are provided with look they were bought from a 2nd hand shop in the early 90's and when combined with high ceilings it makes for a very chilly night. The plumbing in the ensuite... More

This place is cheap and it's located in Bogota, so you cannot expect it to be that nice. It's basic and the folks that work there are nice, so you get what you pay for, it's just that you pay very little (like $10-15/night). The wifi was OK and the food they provided was an decent bonus, but the bathrooms... More

Your average hostel. Poor wifi, and quite poor electric 'hot' water showers. It was quite cold when we were there, and the hostel has quite high ceilings and no heating. We were given one blanket, but luckily there were some unused beds in our dorm room so could use those blankets also- otherwise I would've been quite cold at night.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, in a double private ensuite room (Rock n'Roll). Upon arrival, I waited at the reception for the emotionless reception girl to attend to me, after she finally finished all her tasks. The room was not cleaned well. There was some garbage on the floor in the toilet, which I had to pick up myself and... More

The location is good and close to the old town. But the hostal itself is dirty and uncomfortable. The cheap prove alone cannot justify it. Just for sleeping cheap , nothing more. I have no idea why lonely planet recommends it !!!?!!?

We came in to Bogota in the evening and were happily greeted by the friendly staff at musicology. Everyone that worked there were also so helpful in giving directions, finding stuff to do, and they were just fun to hang out with. The hostel had so many fun things to take part in. We joined the group for a super... More

There was nothing remarkable about this hostel and nothing so bad either. The internet was pretty slow (as it was EVERYWHERE I stayed in South America with the exceptions of a few places). The location was fairly central. The rooms were kind of cavelike and musty, pretty typical. The Good: I think it's a great value hostel because of dinner... More
