I could rate the hotel worse - no hot water for several days, some less-than-friendly-staffers...BUT....It does have a charm, and some of the other staffers and guests made up for the short comings. Beds in the dorm are squeaky and the room isn't big BUT the room is clean and comfortable. Kitchen is small - but well stocked. I think... More

My favourite hostel in 10 months in Latin America. I got stuck here for nearly 3 months and now I'm back again. Lima Limon has an excellent personal, inclusive vibe. More of a family atmosphere than your standard hostel. Everyone tends to cook together. The kitchen and rooms are always clean. The managers Alvaro and Sonia are awesome, always friendly... More

A fabulous launching point in Bogota. Located in Candelaria, quiet, yet fun. It isnt a party hostel, and the price is right for everything the hostel offers. It is a smaller hostel, so there is a cozy home feel to it.

I arrived at this zesty little place feeling somewhat catatonic after an exhausting overnight bus ride from Mompox. That feeling soon washed away after I was greeted at the front door by the most beautiful hostel worker I had ever seen, the most beautiful hostel I had ever seen, and the most delicious hot shower I had experienced in some...

From the airport, my girlfriend and I took a cab to Lima Limon. The first "cabbie" to approach us didn't offer a very good price (about 50,000 CP) so shop around a bit (our return to the airport cost half that price and picked us up from the hostel). The area that the hostel is located is pretty awesome: La... More

Lovelt little hostel, very nice people, great kitchen and a funky chill vibe, really liked this place, not as flash or lush as some others but just one of those places you feel comfortable in as soon as you arrive and would definitely recommend it.

I was planning to stay two weeks in Bogota but ended up staying three months. Lima Limon is not like a hostel, in a great way. It's like a home, it might sound cliché but it's true. It's very relaxed and Sonia and Alvaro are like friends, not just people in the reception. They'll be drinking and hanging out with... More

This hostel was in a nice location and had very friendly staff. La Candelaria is a hilly neighborhood to walk, but beautiful. Plenty of nightlife to check out in the area as well as amazing little bars and restaurants. The rooms were clean as were the bathrooms. My only complaint is that the 3 shower rooms didn't have anywhere to... More
