Masaya is the best hotel to stay when you travel for a couple of days in Bogota. It is in the epicenter of la Candelaria (most touristic place in Bogota). The hostel is big and confortable, staff very attended and there are plenty of backpacker willing to exchange travel experiences and to party. A place that definitively you must visit... More

Really lovely rooms with hotel standard bathrooms. We stayed in a double - big comfortable bed with a duvet. Good location in La Candelaria on a pretty street. There are some decent restaurants and bars close by. Good communal areas - an open-air terrace and a bar/breakfast area, which has a very small size pool table. The only grumble we... More

The area is great and very safe, its a good place to stay if you want to do the bicycle tours and walk to the cable cars which take you up the mountain. Only downfall is the bar... More

Good morning, Thank you for your thoughts on your stay, we're very pleased to hear that you appreciated Masaya. Our bar closes at midnight to avoid too noisy nights. Moreover, to respect our guests' sleep, we have a "quiet" policy after 10PM. In Masaya we want to offer cultural activities with great people in a great environment but we don't... More

We stayed one night in Bogota and chose this hostel for its location in La Candelaria. I didn't regret it. It feels very safe, with good security on the door and private rooms. The location is great to walk to nearby restaurants and they can organise lots of tours and activities although unfortunately we didn't have time to do any.... More

We spent 3 days in Masaya Bogota. The Hostel is in the historical town. It's a beautiful House. The dorms are comfortable : large bed with small curtains which is very good for privacy. I sleep very well. You have a lot of activities inside like ping pong / Karaoke / danse... You meet easily a lot of people. The... More

As a couple, we stayed in hostels in Medellin, Santa Marta, Barranquilla and Cartagena and Masaya was the best hostel we stayed in. The shared bathrooms are still getting renovated but they are modern and the water is instantly warm. The beds are uncomfortable and the breakfast was so good for a free breakfast with scrambled eggs, juices and fruits.... More

Just like the title of this really. Liked the hostel, friendly and helpful staff and good breakfast but our room couldn't pick up with (wife and I had private room) which was annoying as we were trying to plan ahead. But seemed like pretty much everywhere else it was fine

Despite plenty of options (some considerably cheaper) email decided to stay here based on the positive feedback we researched online. Firstly I would like to say that the hostel is very well located for those wishing to explore beautiful La Candelaria and the rooms and decor are very appealing. However we were disappointed with the poor service we received from... More

Good afternoon, We take very seriously your opinion into consideration. It’s true that actually we renovate the bar of the hostel during your stay but now the bar it’s over and totally new.

A very nice place to stay in Bogota. The staff is really friendly and makes sure that it is not too noisy at night, which I really appreciated. There is a lot of common space to hang out if you want to and breakfast was good! I also loved the shower. It was a normal one (not an electric one)... More
