A lot of people have described this place as being like staying in a family home and it is... so if that's what you're looking for, great. The family who run Satya are lovely, super friendly and helpful, especially Steffi who looks after the second house where we stayed for four nights in a private double room. But it definitely...

We were recommended this hostel by friends who said "it's like staying with family" and they weren't wrong. John, Stef & Greg were welcoming, helpful and generous! It was such a nice change to other hostels which operate like bussinesses, where the staff show minimal interest in interaction. John spent an hour on our first morning telling us about Bogotá...

Staying three nights upon my arrival in Colombia... So far I have worked out the showers, of which there are two available. Both are hot if you manage the taps carefully. The non-electric one has better flow. Bed is comfortable, but if you need a quiet place to sleep early in the night, or later in the morning, then you... More

We stayed at both Sayta hostels over a course of a week and couldn't fault either of them! Our welcome was by far the warmest in Colombia, not something you necessarily expect in such a huge city. We felt welcomed into their family the moment we stepped in, they carried our bags to our room and offered us coffee/beer! John... More

We were at Sayta for six nights, and we had such a great time there. From the very first introduction, John, Erika, Greg, and Blanca were all so nice and welcoming. They immediately offered us tea and coffee and even carried our bags up the stairs! Our private double room was really spacious, full of natural light, and quiet at... More

Besides the fact it is a true family run business, everything about Sayta is about family. You feel taken care at all times. Just a couple of blocks from the best Museums and monuments. Lot's a universities all around and the best Cheap Eats in Bogota.

This was the first hostel we stayed in at the beginning of a long trip across South America, and as an introduction to travel, we couldn't possibly have asked for better. John was a wonderful host, and made us feel right at home in Bogota, giving several excellent recommendations that truly helped us enjoy our stay. As for the hostel,... More

We stayed at Sayta 2 times while we were in Bogota. John is amazingly friendly and is helpful with everything. My two children felt like they were staying at a home while we were at Sayta. John, his mother and his sister are often around and you can really tell that they care about the place and the business they... More
