I understand the mixed reviews of this hostel. I spent 3 nights here 23-26 April. For complainers: This is a hostel and you will find young crowed, people talking all night, being loud , and a lots of laughter. They coming to enjoy vacation not to concern about people. This is not for people who wants to go to sleep... More

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

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.
