I went to this hostel expecting a nice place to sleep but i got much more. The hostel has great beds, clean facilities, a kitchen equipped with everything, free internet, a great terrace and a cinema, all for the best price in Bogotá. The owners and volunteers working at the hostel are amazing and the time spent here felt like... More

Nicest, most helpful staff. Great vibes, great facilities(showers). Most comfortable and at home I've felt in a hostel in South America! Owner is the sweetest woman ever! Highly recommend this hostel to anyone coming to bogota!

I've spent time at candelos a few times over the past year and its always fantastic! It has a real local and authentic Colombian vibe, more than any other hostel around and the staff are super friendly. For the traveller. Also; amazing showers!

We chose this hostel based on the many good reviews and were very disappointed. We booked 2 rooms on hostelworld but when we arrived they didn’t have the rooms available. We waited while they made up a room for the 3 of us, but the room they gave us was right next to the noisy kitchen area. This would have... More

We had a double room with private bathroom. It had little ventilation so smelt damp and of mould and the room itself was off the main communal area so could be a little noisy at night. Other than that, it was a good central location, close to some good bars and restaurants. Need to be careful at night but safe... More

Stayed here a couple of days in Candelaria Bogota. It's close to the city center with all major attractions like the gold museum and emerald museum. The hostel is calm and safe (they won't let unkown/weird people in). There are parties on the rooftop only up until certain hours to not interfere with those who want to sleep. Very cool... More
