Stayed only one night. this Hostel was full of extremely annoying loud mouth crusty Brits and a couple of slimy Israelis that were really going out of there way to annoy others.
Big beer party in the garden with people screaming and cussing.
It was obvious that even the people working were not too impressed either.
If your looking to hang out, drink beer and hear stories of Drug consumption from low life backpackers or Israeli idiots finishing up their military duties, then you might like this place.
we didnt.

the hostel is in a great location, close to loads of attraction and sights. we had a private room but the common rooms are always busy and friendly. free internet and very helpful staff who went out of their way to find stuff out for us. highly reccommended, although the breakfast is limited!

We stayed here for one night as everywhere else we tried was full. We had the lone double room which was quite run down - no toilet seat, terrible matress, bolt didn't work so couldn't lock door when inside (I had to do a bit of maintenance of my own to fix it). This wouldn't be so bad if we weren't paying $20. You have to wonder why the owners don't put a bit of that money back into the place for improvements. Also our 'window' faced onto the common room so lots of light and sound to keep you awake. They have laundry service so I handed mine over and was told it would be ready in a couple of hours. 3 hours later when I went to ask about it, it was still sitting by the machine unwashed. There's also a vicious cat which acts friendly until you try and stroke it, then it strikes!

On the positive side the staff were friendly and helpful. We were incouraged to join in with a free salsa class. There's also a free breakfast included consisting of cereal and coffee.

I stayed in apartment with one college.. Apartment was pretty spacey, clean and had most of electric appliances (toaster, microwave, cable TV, phone, modem - wireless internet..). Candelaria is place where most hostels are, so lets say if you do not look like Latino, its safer to walk around then in some other areas in Bogota.. Service support is good too, only thing is that most of 'em don't speak English, so knowing Spanish is huge + (I had some problems, and was kinda difficult to communicate on English, but that's the situation in hole S.America, right?)
