Musicology Hostel has been one of the few hostels in Bogota that has a long-term tradition. Now, a renewed and refurbished Musicology has opened its doors again to offer new experiences for travelers. Our ...More beautifully-restored colonial house has two patios and hammocks to chill out in. We offer a fully-equipped bar and lounge with reasonably-priced food and drinks, in addition to a daily happy hour. We also offer a common room to watch movies, hang out and free use of DSL internet on our public computers. WiFi is also available at no charge throughout the entire hostel. We recently installed soundproofing in the bar, so you can enjoy our excellent speaker system, while simultaneously enjoying a peaceful rest. All of our breakfast options include unlimited colombian coffee, tea, fresh fruit juice. On our menu, you may choose between such options as fresh croissants, eggs, pancakes, waffles, fruit plates, oatmeal and traditional arepas, toasted with farmers cheese for very reasonable prices. We offer free towels, local calls, use of our guest kitchen, a book exchange, free and secure luggage storage for as long as you need, complimentary use of hostel facilities after check-out time and early check-in at no charge if your room or bed is available. Also, we have laundry service at the hostel. Our reception is 24/7 and there is no curfew or lockout. In addition to the high-quality services we provide, we also pride ourselves in our ecological principles. We are among a handful of hostels in Bogota that recycles; wood used in the hostel from our furniture, to our bunk beds to the bar, and the reception comes from demolition sources. Our amazing staff will be more than happy to assist you with your onward travels, advice on what to do in Bogota and just about anything else you need, so come stay at Musicology and let the music rock your soul!!!
