We have stayed in 4 hostels in Bogota and this is defintely the worst. We only ended up staying here because everything else was booked out over the weekend. As with most places there was no hot water, despite being told there was before checking in. Bogota is cold and you don't want cold showers! It might be a general problem with the la candelaria area, but they should have been honest. Also there is no wifi, and the internet doesn't work anyway! All 5 computers are makeshift things made of bits and bobs that don't work properly. The biggest problem for us was the cigarette smoke. Despite signs everywhere saying not to smoke, EVERYWHERE smelt like smoke, including our room! At 50K for double w/ bath you can get much better. Try the chocolate hostel next door, or anywhere else!!!
