This is a great place to stay when you're in Bogota. It's location is perfect, in La Candelaria surrounded by traditional Colombian restaurants. We met lots of new friends whilst staying here. The hostel is run by a very friendly family, they cook you breakfast every morning. Also, they have the cutest dog ever!!

Friendly staff and really nice, clean rooms. The private rooms are facing the street and it is really loud during the night. Brakfast is ok. All main sights in Candelaria are in walking distance. The road is not not accessible by car. Taxi must drop you off at the plaza right next to the hostel.

Casa Bellavista is amazing!!! First of all, the staff are incredibly friendly. (Most don't speak much English, so it's definitely helpful to speak at least conversational Spanish.) I was traveling with a group of three other girls, and the owner always made sure we got home safely before he went to sleep (we're pretty sure he came out to look... More

Our first stop on our travels in South America was in Bogota at Casa Bellavista, and we loved the homely feel of the dorms, the common areas and the staff. The free breakfast was also very nice. A very good location and a nice base for exploring Bogota

Beautiful rooftop views of the Bogota grafitti. Genuinely chilled, helpful, friendly, chatty staff who will help with taxis etc at the drop of a hat. Definitely home from home feel, with Maya the adorable German shepherd on hand to make you feel welcome, if you like dogs anyway. Met some great, interesting people here too. I wandered past this place... More

We stayed here for four nights and it's in a great location, in the heart of La Candeleria very close to the original founding site of Bogota and within walking distance of all the museums. The owners are really lovely and go out of their way to help you. There is free tea/coffee all day, free wifi and a very... More

A friend and I stayed at Bella Vista hostel for two nights a couple of days ago and we were amazed at how lovely the family that own the place were.

I stayed for four nights in this hostel. The location was so cool, nearby the Transmilenio station in downtown Bogotá. I was suggested to take a cab from there to the hostel but it does not worth. The staff service was good, specially Gerardo's. He advised us about everything to make our stay in Bogotá such a good time. The... More

Casa Bellavista is a nice and quaint, family run hostel in a perfect location in La Candelaria. The place is well furnished and has a great common area with good vibes at the weekend. Breakfast was a nice touch, cooked to order by one of the staff and there was free tea all day. There always seemed to be something... More
