“Clean, friendly and great beds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Hostel Sue is an extremely clean hotel in the student area of Bogota. Staff were really nice and the kitchen was kept spotless as were the rooms. Extremely comfy beds with lovely warm covers for when it gets chilly! Close to the gold museum which is free on Sundays.

A lot more could be done with the decent bar space available.

Stayed there for 3 nights. Super clean shared bathroom. The service couldn't be better. Friendly, professional staff caring for their guests and trying to help all the time. Received great advises about places to visit and things to do. Lovely place to stay in La Candelaria. Colonial neighborhood rather close to Museums and Plaza Simon Bolivar. Restaurants and bars nearby. The area was quite safe and we didn't have any problems walking around. I extremely recommend this hostel and will definitely come back as soon as possible.

we stayed three nights in the hostel (private room with shared bathroom) and two nights in an apartment two blocks away, the hostel is just lovely, with a cosy patio and nice crowd. clean rooms, strong wi-fi, clean bathrooms and plenty of hot water. breakfasts were good, too. just round the corner from the hostel is a nice little spot to hang out in the square or in the bars. the apartment was a good deal too. recommended.

Hostal Sue have a two double bedroom with ensuite apartment just 2 blocks away, which is very very nice. Very modern and smartly decked out and very central on the edge of La Candeleria. We hung out in the Hostal a few times and found it to be very chilled and the facilities very good. Staff were great and professional and the place very well looked after. Enjoyed our stay there and would go back. Also, spent 5 nights in La Candeleria and never once came across any trouble.

I had a great stay at hostal sue and had the chance to meet a number of other travelers during my time in Bogota. They host regular events and provide regular tour services during the week. The rooms were ok with enough blankets to keep warm during the chilly Bogota nights. Breakfast was simple but fine considering the price. There are serveral expats who work there who are fluent in english and spanish so that was a bonus. Definitely recommend.

in a great location, but rooms are cramped and the place is generally cold. internet was patchy. pretty good attached and the common area is pretty good. kitchen is very cramped.

but the rooms are poorly sound-proofed so bring ear-plugs if you're a light sleeper

staff can be very apathetic, seemingly more interested in talking to each other than being available. None spoke any english at all.

Worth of all, in terms of staff, we were interested in doing the trip out to Andres Carne de Res, but were adamant that we wanted to go early to get the full experience (meal, shows, dancing & partying), as opposed to the tours offered by Cranky Croc which leaves at 11pm and so you miss the meal and shows. They told us they had a tour at 9:30pm and that it was def going and was not combined with Cranky at 11pm. 9:30 rolled around, they gave us a drink in the bar and then herded us over to Cranky to wait for them to depart after 11! i.e. they outright lied to us and were then completely unapologetic about it, basically told us it was not their problem - and they tried to charge us 5,000 pesos more than Cranky does!
