I stayed here in October and again in Novemebr for a couple of nights. I was actually planning to stay only 1 night in Bogota the first time around but i needed some extra things so i ended up staying longer. The hostel gets booked up pretty fast so it is recommend to reserve a bed.
You might have a walk a little to get to where you want. There is a super market close by though. But the bus stop is a little distance away. It is nothing if you are a backpacker though. I am used to walking so it was not problem for me.
The breakfast was probable the best i had in a hostel whilst travelling around Colombia. You get fruit, a selection of cereal, tea/coffee, toast & jams etc.. Most hostels skimp out of the fruit.
Everything was clean and orderly and the staff were extremely friendly. I was very grateful they understood and spoke English easily. I would stay there again.
