Great experience, such a good place. I love the staff and the italian owners. Great place for partying and meet new friends. Im sorry for the ones who had problems with the volume, but at least I was noticed about the party since the very first minute. Best hostel in Bogotá. Ill be back, no doubts.

I stayed at Fulanos (twice) while in Bogota. First impressions are good, the hostel is clean and appears to have everything you need. On both occasions I was one of many people who had issues with the staff, namely the owner (some staff telling me that the owner had no idea how to run the business). On the second occasion... More

Great hostel all round if looking for cleanliness, security and lovely staff! Location is unusual, as it is very far from Candelaria (where most tourists go, not necessarily the best area however) but only about 10 blocks walk up to Zona Rosa, the best area for nightlife. Right next to a big supermarket and some great Arepa stands for a... More

Fulanos it's your best choice to stay in Bogotá for sure. We've been 2 times in bogotá during our stay in Colombia. The first time we stayed in "La Candelaria" but we didn't like it that much, and a colombian friend suggested us to stay in Fulanos (in chapinero) and it was the best choice ever. Not only it's a...

This place had been recommended by 4 different travellers who we met in different places on the way and it didn't let us down. We were tired from a 38 hour bus ride (many hours delayed!!), it was pouring down rain and we were ready for our bed. Once arrived at the hostel the staff went 'ooooohh we have been... More

Fulano promised so much. On arrival appearance is fantastic, staff friendly enough. Private room was ok, very small but served a purpose. So that's the good stuff. Wifi was horrible, prices in the bar were too expensive and it seems as though they want your money rather than helping the traveler. Sorry I don't like pasting places but left disappointed... More

This place was a pleasant surprise! The location is really good and safe, with some good options for food and nightlife around. It's a bit far from the center, but it's worth paying the cheap taxis to go there. The hostel itself is very nice, it's easy to notice that all details are taken care off, including decoration and design.... More

Everything brand new. Thoroughly thought through setup and interior design. Many bathrooms. Spectacular kitchen. Run by 3 enthusiastic Italians. Located 1 block from a good supermarket and about 10mins walk from the Zona Rosa. Highly recommended.
