We staid here for 1 night with 3 of us and ot wasn't great, but it wasn't horrible either. What I really didn't like is that the beds were covered in plastic and there was no warm water, which was pretty rough with Bogota's cold temperatures. The whole place is quite outdated as well. The positives are: very friendly family... More

The hostel is really nice and clean. Yolanda (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. You get a map and she tells you all the great things to see. She helped us out a lot with our delayed lugage problems.The hostel is close to almost all sights.

As we knew we would be arriving in Bogota quite late at 1am, we thought best to book a place for the night. We found this place on hotels.com and the reviews for it was good. First of all, the map was wrong on the hotels.com website (that could be our fault for not double checking) so it was difficult... More

Service: Make sure you don't pay too much here and that you speak Spanish! The airport shuttle is a absolute rip off. They charged us $ 25,- for a ride that costs $ 10,- (COP 25.000) when you take a taxi. Besides that they charged 11% more than the booking site confirmed. But this seems to be a mistake. Booking.com... More

I love this place, it is very low priced in the best area of Bogotá. We stayed four for nights. Yolanda and her family, who own and run the place, are lovely and although we don't speak a word of Spanish, were very very patient with us. The room's are small and simple but clean and comfy which is all... More

We travelled to Bogota in October 2012 and had booked this hostel 4 months in advance and we got to Bogota in the dark. There was no sign and with heavy backpacks we walked up and down the designated street for what seemed like ages. Then someone showed us to the door and the owner opened saying that it's no... More

The place was not sceptional, but ok. Prices were quite good for the area. The owners were nice but not very proffesional. We were staying in a dorm that they use as a double when someone wants to pay extra and all our stuff was changed of room without our permission and supervision while we were away. They have as...
