My friend and I are from Canada and started our trip off in Bogota, staying at musicology and absolutely fell in love. We booked a week at the hostel and could have never left. I have travelled a lot in my lifetime and I have never made so many instant friendships with the staff and guests in my life. The... More

It was nice but it could be better. They say that the kitchen is closed in the morning so you have to buy breakfast but I cooked anyway. The fridge was broken but they didnt do anything about it, we couldn't even use the staff fridge.. Not so well equipped. My dorm was really small, they have bigger one also... More

I made a reservation through their website and I received a confirmation email. Everything seems alright but when I came to check in nobody could find my booking. To extend my stay I made my reservation through a well known hostel reservation website and again they totally lost it. They could not find my email in the system and then... More

This Hostel was a huge disappointment. the staff seemed uninterested to do their job, security within the hostel was minimal (they had lockers under the bed, but as we found out, they can be moved with a little muscle). we heard of a few people getting robbed and the staff was not helpful with this. We were promised a large... More

Positive: confortable beds, spacious dormitories, very clean with enough bathrooms, nice vibe Negative: it was written in hostels sites that there was free breakfast, but when I got there I was informed that they had recently changed it and the cheapest option (2 croissants with butter) costed now 1500 COP. But we still got free breakfast on january 1st. Very... More

Really great social vibe to the hostel with lots of interesting and helpful volunteers. Ilan was really helpful with advice as well as sorting out my flights and visa problems with a friend. Intended to stay 1/2 nights but ended up being about a week and had a great Christmas dinner with the whole gang.

Just what you need out of a hostel. Cheap price. Helpful staff. Comfortable beds. Quiet dorms. And clean facilities. Oh and an extra bonus of great wifi throughout the hostel. The staff is really great here; ask them a question and if they dont know the answer they will find out... very quickly. They are all very friendly too. We... More

I stayed a couple of nights. I thought the place was quite nice. If going out late at night, in certain places, best keep your wits about you, but that goes for any large city. Having talked to one of the new owners it looks like they have great plans for the place. If they follow through this will be... More

I was quickly checked in, which was huge plus after some unexpected travel delays. I was worried that my average Spanish might be a problem.I did not have a reservation either. The person at put my concerns to rest and was happy to speak English.and showed me what was left. I did not have a lot of options as they... More

Was just meant to stay for two days but ended up staying for two weeks+! The hostel is set in a 200 year old building giving the place character. It is in a great location in the historical core to the city meaning you are greeted by a rich array of colonial buildings as soon as walk out the front... More
