We stayed here on two separate occasions, the first upon deciding that La Candelaria wasn't for us and on a friend's recommendation, the second upon returning to Bogota after the World Cup. We stayed in two different rooms, one was a very tight squeeze of 8 beds but as we only used the room for sleeping it wasn't the biggest... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 days whilst passing through Bogota. The location is fairly good, and the building from the outside is aesthetically appealing. However this is where any good experience ends. Our private room for two was not big enough to swing a cat, the matresses are hard and covered in some form of thick synthetic... More

This hostel was a major let down for me and reading the negative comments listed below this I experienced nearly all of their issues. I normally would never give negative feedback on a hostel but feel somewhat obliged to do so in this case. The (terrible) music which blared on Friday and Saturday until all hours despite only 1 or... More

I highly recommend this hostel! If you are looking for a hostel outside of the Candelaria area, than this is the one! Its only a year old, so amenities and the hostel itself are very clean! Staff was wonderful, and very knowledgeable about the area. Free salsa lessons, live music on weekends, asado (BBQ) on tuesdays. Overall an amazing time!

I recently stayed here for 6 nights with my girlfriend. The rooms are super clean, there are lots of different common areas and the kitchen is huge. Midweek it is pretty chilled out but on the weekend there are big parties with a great mix of locals and travellers. Everyone we met was really friendly too!

Stayed for 4 nights. Great location in a safe neighborhood! Supermarket Carulla a 2 minute walk. Great kitchen facilities. The mattress was new and comfy, new modern hot showers, and wifi in the dorm. The included Breakfast was simple yet tasty, eggs any style, toast and coffee. An overall great experience!
