This place is really lovely, an old historical building with lots of flowers in the garden. The mattresses are quite old an uncomfortable, however and there are many rules, which you are provided with the second after you walk in the door. Actually, first you're asked for a tip, then you get the rules. There are lots of postings all... More

We picked this place as heard it was a very quiet place to stay which was what we were looking for. We stayed in a double room with a bathroom and it was cosy and also quiet (we couldn't hear the road outside as were thick stone walls, and faced the internal courtyard). The staff were very helpful and gave... More

A perfectly positioned quiet hostel. Not a place if you're party minded, as there is no alcohol allowed at the hostel, but there a plenty of places to go near by. Very secure with the door always locked and a policeman always stationed on the corner about 3 doors down.

This is a wonderful hostel/hotel. It is located in the heart of La Candelaria and staffed by friendly and welcoming young women. The breakfast was a bit meager, but the location and the historic building make up for it (the main building is nearly 400 years old). The outside courtyards are extraordinary. The kitchen is heated by an old wood... More

It has been about two and a half years since I last visited Bogota and stayed in this property. To not only see the same pleasant staff but for them to recognize you and greet you like an old friend is just half the reason that makes this place so special. There isn't much I can add since my last... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great and quiet location in la candelaria, where you can go by foot to the center during the day very safely. Open kitchen where you can help yourself breakfast. Nice but very simple rooms around a patio filled with beautiful Plants and bonsais. Warmly recommended

This hostel has a really chilled feeling. It's got a couple of small courtyards with hammocks, and a hidden garden at the back, so it's like a little oasis. There's a nice shared kitchen with cooking facilities, and breakfast of eggs, cheese, toast, and some really nice teas & jams. And coffee, obviously. The rooms are huge and clean. No... More

If you're looking for a tranquil place central to the historical area of Bogota, consider here. The historical architecture is simple and elegant and the kitchen has a nice set up for many people to cook at the same time or simply hang out and socialize. The rooms are simple, so if you need a special/luxury bed, this is not... More

Anandamayi is probably the most tranquil and beautiful hostel I've ever stayed at. (It's more like a B&B or budget boutique hotel than your typical hostel in my opinion.) I visited Bogota twice over a 2-week period. For my first visit, I chose another hostel that also receive 85%+ rating on Hostelworld.com as it's slightly cheaper. I didn't enjoy that... More

This place is awesome. Run by some of the strongest women I've met in South America. They truly care about your well being. I had a weird circumstance happen to me while I was in bogota and they backed me up and stayed up with me until five in the morning making sure I was happy! This alone makes me... More
