Private rooms are nice, clean and have character. Simple breakfast, fresh bread, butter, jam, juice and maybe some fruit. The owner is friendly - she will give you lots of tips - she has two large dogs that are usually at the property and are very friendly. Great little courtyard and nice kitchen area. Downside - 1) only two showers... More

The building and location were beautiful. However, we were under the impression that we would be able to at least communicate in basic English but were instead made to feel like we were an inconvenience. It is possible the owner/Manager was having a bad time with the Wifi being down but it's not hard to make an effort. The ambience... More

Fantastic hostal located in the heart of the tourist district in Bogota. Not a party hostel but still had a nice chilled out vibe. Dorms are very comfortable. Great wifi and a kitchens if you prefer to cook your own food. The staff were fantastic and had plenty of recommendations for things to do in the city. Would recommend.

I stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed my time. I don´t know if it is the "best" hostel in Bogota, as I never felt the need to change! The Staff are friendly and jovial. Breakfast could be tweaked so there is bread left for late risers (a minor criticism)

We stayed four nights in this beautiful and cosy hostel. It has very good location in the heard of Calendaria - a nice part of the City, espacially for tourists who don't like it too touristy and meanwhile don't like to feel insecure. We had a lovely private room for about 30$ / night. As soon as we will return... More

Fantastic hostel! Stayed in a private room with a fire place- the hostel provided wood and we cuddled up in bed & enjoyed the tranquility! The staff were incredibly friendly, all areas were clean & comfortable, wifi was excellent and washing services are available. We will definitely be back!

Pros: -great location -friendly staff -beautiful building and interior Cons: - the beds are really uncomfortable, instead of buying one good mattress they put two bad ones on each bed - as soon as you sit on the bed, the sheets are off -they were doing serious painting all the time, without any info so you would touch the door...

As reviewed many times before, their booking system isn't working. I walked in in the morning to ask for two beds for the night. Sure, no problem! When we showed up two hours later, no beds available. Maybe we could share one small dorm bed? No, sorry.

The hostel looks nice and has a open atmosphere. The room next to the administration is really smelly though, because there was is a fireplace inside. The breakfast is really poor and consist of only a little piece of bread (nothing to put on it, even no eggs) and a juice. Almost the whole staff was nice but there was... More
