Musicology hostel is excellently located in La Candelaria and the dorms are dirt cheap. The Hostel has a pretty good vibe to it over all--lots of big dorm rooms, some good common areas and lots of young people. Super high level of disorganization from staff...I basically wasn't placed in the correct bed on my first day, and throughout my stay... More

This hostel is decent, especially for the price. Was very chill when I was there, although they have a lot of beds and a lot of space. They could use proper couches in the TV room and the other common rooms. Beds were fine and wifi usually worked well in common areas, cheap breakfast, but it is not included. I'd... More

After taking a night bus to bogota we arrived at the hostel at 8am. We were met by the former "manager". After we rang the bell to get in she grumbled at us that "we made her run"... To what? Press the button to open the door remotely. After reluctantly checking us in, we asked if we were able to... More

Staff helped as much as they were able but there was little engagement with English speakers. Several areas under some kind of construction with no real explanation. No real vibe beyond chill but to be fair my friend and I didn't frequent the bar.

I think it was a nice place once. With prices for bagpackers including breakfast. But the owner changed 2 months ago. Hes a grumpy gringo. So there is NO breakfast any more, only if you pay extra. Yeah, sometimes you will get tea and bad coffee. We had problems with the Internet. But the stuff couldn't help, they just said,... More

The rooms whilst large were dark and felt and smelt damp. The free breakfast advertised everywhere only consists of coffee and occasionally tea despite the breakfast menu itself stating 'free fruit juice and bread'. Other choices are available for a small price. During the stay there was a power cut for 24+hrs (nowhere else was effected) whilst not their fault... More

The hostel had a very nice atmosphere and all the people were very friendly. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner and breakfast was good value for money. The rooms, however, were a bit dink and dark, and they felt a bit damp. The staff were quite knowledgeable about the tourist activities but I was disappointed that they... More
