We stayed in bogota twice during our month long visit to Colombia and Masaya was our favourite hostel.
The layout of the hostel lends itself well to socialising and we met a lot of people here- there is a large common area with sofas and television, pool table, Internet access and bar. There is a further atrium- style seating area where you can sit and have a drink and hang out. This was probably the best part of the hostel- the social aspect - and it attracts people from all the world.
There was no window in our bedroom but this didn't really matter as we didn't spend much time in our rooms. There was a television with sky channels in our room (a double) but I don't think this was the case in the bigger shared rooms. The shared bathroom was clean and well maintained.
Bogota is freezing (in comparison to the rest of Colombia) so we appreciated the presence of duvets - not available in all hostels!
It's in a great location and we felt safe staying here - again, not something that all hostels in Bogota make you feel. We really recommend this hostel!
