The room and in the inside are nicely decorated and VERY CLEAN. And you feel safe, knowing you are surrounded by a pretty bad neighborhood
It does not have the trashy backpacker style of some places... It is more business like
The bedding is a little bit cheap...but ok
Some doors showed they were forced the entry and one of the windows did not lock (but the bars prevented any entries)
The employees were nice but not ready to do the extra mile when the internet went down.
The neighborhood is very exotic, but dangerous at night.. better take a taxi to go from one block to the other...It is ok during the daytime and you are close to downtown Bogota... The area has a lot of homeless, i have never seen as many homeless in my whole life of traveler (40 countries)... even guatemala city (where i had been) had less poor people.
The price was reasonable $20...
