Fantastic little hostel in a great location in La Candelabria. Our host was full of information and helped us when we had trouble with flight bookings. Although there is no breakfast included they also brought us coffee and toast when we had a very early departure which was very much appreciated. The hostel is clean, the shared bathroom on the...

most of the city sights are around old town and zona rosa is either expensive (taxi) or long (public transport) ride away so candelaria is good choice provided you're prepared to take taxi back from restaurant late at night. Zohar is very close to main square and host is very friendly and informative. Clean rooms nicely decorated but expect typical... More

We had the the double room at the front of the hostel. Real boutique feel, very theatrical and somewhat surreal. The owner was lovely and full of knowledge and you can tell he had a real love for the building. Very nicely restored and you can imagine what it was like to be in one of these types of colonial...

I was really nicely surprised with what I got for the price that I paid. This hostel is at a perfect location in the midst of Candelaria district. Only a block from Museo Botero del Banco de Republica, and a few blocks from Plaza de Bolivar and pedestrian areas. The area is safe. I booked a single room with bathroom.... More

What a shame! When there are so many excellent and cheaper options in La Candelaria, why on earth did we choose this one??!! Our room was dark and dingy with a real need for fresh paint and a light bulb or two, we had to read by headlamp. I can't really speak to the cleanliness as it was hard to... More

This place is pretty cool! Joshua is an excellent host, very friendly and outgoing. The place does smell a little funky/moldy in certain rooms, but if you can't take weird smells then you should probably just stay in Orlando anyway.
