We spent 5 nights here in December 2013. The welcome was warm and the staff extremely helpful - English is spoken. The hostel is very well located for Candelaria and the sites around the Plaza de Bolivar. But, despite the central location,there is no problem with noise as there are no nightclubs close. The TransMilenio terminal Les Aquas is a... More

Let's start here: We were a party of seven with a very low budget. We had around $500 (US DOLLARS), each one, for an eleven days backpacking trip. We went to different places in Colombia looking for places to spend the night that were cheap, clean and safe. Casa Violeta is a nice place to stay, feels like home, it's... More

The Hostel is placed in a quiet street in "La Candelaria" of Bogotá. The crew is very nice and helpfull. Casa Violetta an experience, every room is unique. We had the suit, I could take a nap in the Hamock, my son could sleep upstairs, while I could hang out downstairs. If I visit Bogotá again, Casa Violetta is my... More

We stayed three nights in the hostel in the old town of Bogota. The hostel owner and the staff are young people, very friendly and helpful with questions about the city and traveling in Columbia. The house itself is just renovated by the owner (very stylish) and every room has its own name - we for instance stayed in "habitacion... More

We were attracted by the great website of this place and the good reviews they have! However we were highly disappointed. Never have we experienced so unfriendly and rude staff. The kitchen was so dirty that we could not use it. The water was freezingly cold, exactly the opposite of what they advertise. Same as the breakfast, since it depends... More

Unless there is absolutely no other accommodation available in bogota there is no reason anyone would choose to stay at Casa Violeta and here are some reasons why 1. It is dirty 2. The staff are rude, unhelpful and disinterested 3. The staff have there friends sleeping in the common areas and dorms which presents a security risk 4. Breakfast... More

Nice large rooms with a good location in La Candelaria. The only downside is the shared bathrooms and showers. Most hostels have showers that provide some privacy and an area where you can dress. Not so here. And the showers have electric hot water but the water does not get hot, not really warm, just not totally cold. Shared kitchen,... More

I loved Casa Violeta - It's been over a month since I've returned home but my feelings remain the same. I was super skeptical about staying in a "hostel" but this place is SO much more than that. The staff become your friends and your most valuable resource in Bogota. Alex was particularly helpful, gracious and amazing. Overall, the people... More

My wife and I have just spent four nights at Casa Violeta and it's been absolutely brilliant. The hostel is very laid back but very stylish. There's art work hanging all over the walls and each room has a theme. It all felt very original to us. There's a small kitchen and very smart shared bathrooms, an X-Box in the... More

We stayed here before heading north to Cartagena and Tayrona, and enjoyed it enough to book it again when we returned to Bogota. The guys and gal working the front desk are friendly and laid-back, and very helpful. There were parties on the two Friday nights that we stayed here, one of which was still going on when we left...
