On first sight it doesn't might seem so, but this hostel is fairly big and has a lot of space (apart from the rooms, a nice area for hammocks, a roof top area, a restaurant, a pool table, kitchen). The hostel and the rooms are clean. Staff is very friendly. Internet should be fine (some people including me had some... More

While the overall ambiance and vibe of the hostel is relatively cool, there are a great deal of things that needs to be improved. The newer addition of the hostel has nice single rooms with private bathroom and a balcony. However, I had to use the showers outside the room because I could not get hot water in the room.... More

Definitely the place for single party people and old wander-ers. Music until 3 am AND our room was in between the communal shower and the metal lockers. When we asked to change rooms we were given the run-around and dismissed by every staff member we talked to. Wifi also did not work once during our 3 day stay, despite asking... More

Had a great time in Kiwi, superfriendly and helpful staff, good atmosphere and very spacious. Try the homemade food and jugos! You won't want to leave. If you need a lot of sleep: Bring earplugs to avoid getting tired of the partykids.

Not such a great sleeping spot! But as long as you know what Youre getting yourself I to you wont be disappointed. Friendly staff, cool people constantly coming through the doors, and a great hostel set up to facilitate meeting new people and getting s party going (bar downstairs!!). Bring some ear plugs or better yet, just get out of... More

If you are into partying then this is the hostel for you....but definitely NOT my cup of tea. The music in the onsite bar/club goes until 2 or 3AM and even with heavy duty ear plugs in its pretty loud. The bunk beds and are metal and move all over the place. The top bunk is also very high up.... More

If your looking for a nice party hostel you have to go to Casa Kiwi. Friendly staff and clean surrounding. My bunkbed was little bit scary but it didnt felt apart haha. The hostel is Next to parque Lleras so close to all the bars and restaurants. Toilets are clean!

If you're looking for a place to party, Casa Kiwi is a good choice. It's located in an area with many hostels, bars and restaurants that cater to western tourists. I slept on the third floor and didn't have much trouble sleeping. It can be slightly noisy out on the street in the early hours. Staff was helpful.

Casa Kiwi is great for partying and meeting travelers, but don't expect any peace and quiet if you stay here. It is centrally located in Poblado, a few blocks from Parque Lleras and the major restaurant/nightlife spots in Zona Rosa. The Hostel has a younger vibe. The guest kitchen facilities are adequate, although space in the refrigerator is very limited.... More

This is a pretty average hostel. The staff aren't that friendly and the service is unbearably slow. There's no information on what to do in the area, and no-one gives you a tour of the hostel on arrival or even explains their facilities (they have a really nice hammock area and a roof terrace). The rooms are small and cramped,... More
