Booked a double room which was fine for a short stay. Walls were very thin and the room was directly above the kitchen, so we were woken up by the neighbours and anyone coming in late. Shower was not great, a little dirty, and no hot water. Breakfast was the standard bread, jam and coffee. Staff were friendly, although not... More

I am rarely write reviews. This is because, if I did not likes the place then it will just make me angry to write about it. Also, as I myself usually look for **the negative** reviews, I find it useless to write those "you are so great" reviews. However, this time it was different. I was staying before in a... More

First off, the hostel is colorfully cozy, being beautifully decorated. It's in candelaria, one of the nicest areas of Bogota as far as we can tell. And La Dueña, the owner, is the warmest person you'll meet in a long time. She goes out of her way trying to get you what you need and more. It's not a party... More

I would highly recommend this place for any solo female traveller looking for a clean, friendly and convenient place. The staff are great and the place offers proper bedding which is such a necessary thing in bogota. It gets reallllly cold at night. Also it's super central to everything you'd wanna see in bogota. The showers can be hot sometimes... More

I have to admit that at least part of the very friendly staff I got to know has since moved on, but even just judging the location, rooms and presentation of the hostel, I can recommend it to everyone who's searching for a chill place to spend their time in la candelaria bogota.

PROS An amazing looking hostel - really funky layout and great vibe. CONS Two biggies for us: cold showers (really disappointing with Bogota's low temps) and (impressively) idiotic staff. Girl on days was lovely, but my goodness, the other two?! Wrong information, NO knowledge of activities they advertised on their own walls (Andres and Bogota Bike Tour), and completely uninterested... More

At first glance, this place seems like nothing special - just some poky dorms set around a small, if colourful, courtyard. But stay awhile and you'll appreciate the tight security, the knowledgeable, friendly staff, and the location - just a stone's throw from the heart of La Candelaria, a few blocks from the city's Transmilenio buses, and a short walk...

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.
