The hostel is well located and clean. The family that run it are friendly and helpful and speak good English. The communal space is limited but there is a nice little sun trap at the top of the stairs to sit in and read. The wifi was good and in the room. As others have mentioned though this place is...

Arrived from australia after a 29 hour flight at 4 so had to disturb the owners but they were ok with it. If your in bogota stay... More

Stayed here 3 nights - not in the main building but in a secondary one around the corner. The room was well maintained but the bathroom could have been cleaner. Staff were quite helpful. It's right on the edge of the Candelaria so it is a bit further to walk to some attractions or restaurants but benefits from being quieter.

We booked in the first house with mountain view private bathroom. When we arrived we were taken to the second house which in turn had a view of a drug house. The windows just had wooden shutters which did not keep the noise out from across the street at all hours. Sleeping was very difficult due to this and I... More

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
