Cold in every sense of the word. Pretty chicas handling the check in/check out can change moods depending on a number of factors...ja. Like many, many places in Colombia if you are light skin, you may get better treatment...colonization legacy? I don't know...there is one young girl managing the bar upstairs...she's the best: always smiling and you can feel that... More

Pros - good location, nice breakfast - watermelon, teas, coffee, milk and a big selection of breads. Dinners were good and very big portions, veggie option sometimes not available, tell them in advance. Showers were very warm and had good pressure. Party bus was great fun on New Years Eve. Good location, on a quiet street, Candelaria and Bogota seems... More

I came to this hostel based on a recommendation from a friend, who said it included breakfast and dinner. (My friend was already staying there but we both soon left.) It sounded good to me because it was only about 1 USD more than the other options I had looked at, but when I arrived it became clear that the... More

I hardly write reviews, and like most people, I only take the time to write one on two occasions, I've either had suburb impeccable service or terrible crumby service. I'm a little puzzled with Musicology. I really didn't like Bogota, too chilly, grey, and polluted, and it seems a little sketchy at night, so I tried really hard not to... More

Sometimes, like in this case, we get guests who are attracted to a/the hostel because of the budget prices. For US$10 a night, which includes free breakfast and dinner, they expect hotel service not really knowing what a hostel means. I’ll try to explain some of the main complains 1. When people check in we give them the bed sheets... More

The vibe of this place is so cool. I felt like home. The people, the food, the treats, the games, everyhing is a PLUS in a great experience that a trip is. These guys are just awesome. Can't wait to be back.

When we arrived there was a dog sleeping on the bed (over the blanket), what makes the room smell really bad.. and the bed clothes were dirty. Besides that, in the middle of the night the staff allowed a young drunk couple to stay in the shared room, the girl wasn't able to walk. They aren't backpackers or even people... More

This hostel was one of my favorite parts of Bogota. You get a free shot if you like the hostel on facebook, there was free salsa classes and the staff were very welcoming. The location is a little away from the city center but still an easy walk.

I stayed here with a friend for 4 days and we had a great time. The beds were good for the price, the place was clean, the staff was great, and the place was laid out so that it was easy to socialize with fellow travelers. It was completely full for our stay; mostly people in their mid 20's. That... More
