This cute little hostel is snug in a residential area with apartment buildings and quiet, safe streets. It's a strange juxtaposition, but offers a taste of classic Colombian architecture. This place is more like a B & B. The lobby has stone, wood and some natural lighting above. Rooms are spartan and antiquated in a somewhat charming way. Walls are paper thin. Bathrooms have basics at best (this place does have hot water, but some other 'quaint' hostels we stayed at did not - and this is typical). The owner was very accommodating, despite our late arrival. Also, they moved the timing of home-made breakfast to accommodate our early departure. We stayed there just for the night. Not sure how easy it would have been to see the sights from that location, so you might want to check it out to be sure. Took a great photo of the exterior the morning we left. Airport landing strip must be close by, due to the occasional sound of jets landing, but the taxi ride was about 20 minutes, I think, and affordable. We booked this hotel on-line, and I think we ended up paying more for it than otherwise, but not sure how I would have found a hotel in Bogota without doing it that way.
