“Good or bad?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

The location cannot be better!
Safe location!
A lot of shops and nightlife VERY close by.
The people are very friendly!
The hostel is clean!
But:
Not possible to communicate in English.
When you're watching a programma on TV the hostel workers do not stop talking.
Beds are painfully hard.
Walls are paper thin!
Nice warm shower but tiny small bathroom downstairs!
Doors jam up.
Considering the safety of the location and the location itself, it is worth it to stay here. But then at a cheaper price!

Excellent and safe location(even at night time).Plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and two expensive shopping malls.
Walking distance from famous Andres D.C. bar.
Close to Transmilenio, otherwise taxi to the centre costs around 8.000-11.000 COP depending on traffic.Taxi to/from the airport roughly 22.000 COP.(taximeter)
I stayed with a travel mate in a room with Ensuite bathroom.We had a massive room and bathroom with great powerful and hot shower.
During the daytime it can be slightly noisy, as you can hear absolutely everything from steps to the bell.However from evening time onwards it is dead silent.Therefore we got a great sleep.
Laid back environment, not a party hostel.
The guys at reception were chilled, but always helpful when we needed anything.
Breakfast is basic, but decent.Very clean hostel, despite their pet cat.
Communal space at reception area is great to chill and the guys have a lot of resources at the mini library.Internet available as well.
Good for solo travelers location and safety wise.

Room Tip: Each room has a Latin America Country name. We stayed at the Argentina one as we loved it.It is sit...

We stayed in the triple private room downstairs. The hostel itself is very quiet and small. Not the best if you're looking to meet other travellers but great if you're travelling with family or friends. Excellent location in Zona Rosa with security, walking distance from a shopping centre and trendy bars and restaurants. Hot water wasn't always consistent. Staff were friendly and tried to help where possible. Overall enjoyed our stay.

We stayed in a twin room here and it was great. Pleanty of space and really clean and comfy. The staff were friendly and the location, right beside all the shopping centres and bars in Zona Rosa, is great as it is quiet for sleeping but the action is close by if you want to go out. It felt like a really safe neighbourhood too. A big plus was the super fast wifi, great for travellers on the go.

I stayed there with my dad for a week and the staff is sooo friendly and nice! The hostel is so cozy and clean and it is really Close to Zona Rosa I then went again by myself and since I am still a teenager the owner of the place was always making sure I was ok and they always provided me with great service. Great value! Great Staff! really recommend it! :D

Excelent location. Amazing nightlife all around.
Very clean. A bit pricier than other hostels but it's worth it.

I didn't enjoy my stay at this hostel at all. We paid slightly extra for a deluxe double and when we got there it was the smallest room I have ever seen, basically just a bed. We noticed one of the rooms next to us was larger and free so asked if we could move there and they said no it is taken in an unfriendly manor which we accepted but then no one ever took this room. Also the room next door had an adjoining window so you could see into the next room if you had wanted and when they got up in the middle of the night and switched their light on it woke me up as light poured in.

They advertise a common area but the whole time we were there the TV was just being watched by the staff/owners with no room for anyone else. Also there is only one shared bathroom which is not kept very clean at all, if several guests are to share one small bathroom then it is important it is regularly cleaned. This didn't seem to happen. The only thing I would say about this hostel is that if you want to explore the North then this is a good location as it is right by the Zona Rosa which has lots of malls and bars/restaurants. I would not recommend this Hostel overall though. I stayed in Jan 2011.
