Basic twin room booked. Two beds, mirror and hooks - that's it. Shared bathroom with hot shower, toilet and basin. Everything gets wet when you have a shower due to the size of the bathrooms. There are male and female though. Two common areas with TV. Breakfast basic; bread/toast, jam, tea, coffee, butter.

You always feel welcome in this place and if your on your own the lads that own the hostal usually take out a group of people to see some nightlife or go to the salsa club,...

This hostel has all you need! The staff are amazingly helpful and great fun too. They will take you out every night if that is your thing or tell you the best markets, restaurants, coffee shops and tourist things to do in town. If you prefer doing what the locals do they are more than happy to explain where all...

Also, it is located in the middle of the main attractions such as Gold Museum, Monserrate Hill and others. In addition, there are many restaurants close to the area, good food for an affordable price. The hostel is very clean and...

This hostel is fantastically located in La Candelaria just a couple of blocks away from the city's main museums and attractions. The owners were lovely and extremely helpful; my luggage didn't arrive and they helped to chase it up and retrieve it. They also arranged several nights out for their guests. We were very pleased with our experience given the...
