It started as fantastic welcome to Bogota, chilled yet friendly & helpful staff, beautifully-painted communal areas, really nice international crowd (agreeably distinct from disciples of the Lonely Planet). Exceptional service? When have you ever heard of a hostel owner escorting a guest on an 18hr busride to Carnaval in Barranquilla? Okay - so, yes, he was going with a couple... More

The Colombian dream hostel is well located in the Candelaria area. It is situated in a nice old building. Walls are nicely decorated with colorful art. We made a reservation through their own website but that didn't work out. They didn't have a double shared bathroom available so we got a ensuite bathroom for the same price. After that night...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014

We stayed in December 2014 as a couple and had a great time at this hostel. What really made a difference for us was the staff, especially the owner, personally bringing us to some interesting nightlife like a local bar and a salsa club. We got a lot of good advise and first-hand experience this way. We had only two... More

The hostel is just nothing but amazing! I love this place. It's location is perfect, directly in the historic center of town. The owner is a great guy who tries to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It's the perfect place to stay for a few days in Bogotá! I am looking forward to be there again.

Firstly, the location is great. From looking at previous reviews if you want a bed in a dorm in a good area then this is what you'll get. If you want a decent room with security and decent shower for a relatively expensive circa $50 they charge, go somewhere else! Poor security for room, absolutely no noise insulation, shower is...

Colombian Dream Hostel is the best place to stay in Bogota. I have stayed here several times and I really love it. The owners are really nice and helpfull and it really feels like home. The hostal is really good located in la Candelaria and close to all the main tourist places, shops, restaurants and buses. The hostel is really... More

I started my travels through south america in Bogota and in the Colombian Dream Hostel. Now having traveled and seen a bit more I can write a good reflective review. I booked for three days, then stayed for over 10! Enough said! ;) The hostel was such a lovely place, it became my second home. The owners Guilermo and Jenny... More

The main reason for choosing this hostel was the colors!! Very friendly and helpful staff, good location and value. Maybe not the best choice for who wants to sleep early due to lack of soundproof but I guess this is a general issue in the area. Would certainly recommend it!!

This was our first stay on our five week trip in South America. This was also my first ever hostel so I was pretty much expecting the worst! Upon arriving late in the night we told the owner we could do with a drink and that we would head down to the bar that is next door to the hostel.... More

The main reason for giving 5 stars is the personal treatment in the hostal. All of staff members have been always helpful, friendly and communicative. They watched television and played cards with the guests, joined even for going out to a salsa club. You feel like hanging out at a friends place. The hostal itself is nice, clean and well... More
