I stayed there 3 days and it was great! There is a restaurant next to the hostel that offers very nice tapas!!! It is located in the Candelaria, which is basically the historic center of Bogota... Ask what you want to the staff... they will help you

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

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

The hostel was in a central location in la candelaria. The staff provided suggestions for activities and restaurants. Good common space, 3 computers and internet that works in the common areas. The breakfast is good as well, but is not included in the price of a shared room. The rooms were decent - be sure to mention what type of... More

Awesome setup with tons of common space to chill out. Full kitchen, some sort of renovations going on when I was there, I think they are adding a bar/kitchen but don't quote me on that. Construction wasn't overly distracting. Front desk people were great and helpful. Only downside is noise travels and an almost unbelievable rate into rooms. They do... More

This hostel was very friendly and relaxed, it was a nice place to spend the evenings just lounging around - it was cool how all the common areas were open-air, although when it started raining that was not the best.

This is a very well run hostel, with friendly knowleadgeable staff on a great location in La Candelaria. We stayed in a private ensuite room, which was a bit small, especially the bathroom (knees to the wall when sitting on the toilet). But the bed was good, with a duvet thick enough to keep us warm on chilly nights, the... More
