Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of my time in Colombia and absolutely loved it! The location was great, right in the heart of Candilaria - within walking distance of many attractions and shops - and the hostel was lovely. We were made to feel so welcome by all the staff upon arrival. Their priority is to look after you and to make sure you enjoy not only your stay at the hostel, but also your time in Bogota. On the first night they invited a local band to play on the rooftop bar/patio before we all went out together to a club in the nearby area. It was a great way to meet other travellers as well as experiencing Bogota with the help of people in the know.
The next day we all went out with the owner once again, to a BMX competition one of her friends was judging downtown. Again, we were made to feel so welcome by her, as if we were old friends she wanted to show around the city, and in the evening we all retired to watch films in the spacious common room around a big fire.
The rooms were very clean and the hostel was cleaned from top to bottom daily. There is a large kitchen should you wish to cook for yourself; and eggs, bread and coffee were complimentary each morning.
I really enjoyed my time here and would urge anyone else to come and make friends in the most hospitable hostel in Bogota!
