The location is ideal, you are a 5 minute walk from the party/restaurant life of Zona rosa but you are in a quiet area where you can hang back. 2 university security guards sit on the block all night long so you feel extremely safe. The hostel itself has like 4 bathrooms so you never have to wait for one to free up. There is a nice hang out area with tables to hang with your friends. Everything is cleaned daily by the super nice cleaning lady. My favorite guy working there was Enrique, very cool and helpful guy! Getting one of the private rooms is ideal for 2 people, otherwise you may feel cramped. The rooms are simple and adequate but are not super nice - it is a hostel after all.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The hostel is in an ideal area (nice, safe, good food), has nice staff and is clean. However, we were hardly able to sleep while there. Our private bathroom backed up to another bathroom and we could hear clearly every time someone used it. Also, since the private rooms are off of the reception, any time someone rang the bell to get in, we heard it. We had the windows open to have some air flow but unfortunately business got started early and in the mornings we were woken up by people on the street setting up for the morning rush.

Overall, I would not recommend getting one of the private rooms (with private bath) if you are a light sleeper.

Buenos días Sarah,

Primero que todo agradecemos tu opinión de 82hostel en TripAdvisor ya que para nosotros todas las opiniones de los viajeros son de gran ayuda para mejorar en los aspectos que estamos fallando.

En cuanto al ruido, estamos trabajando para que ni muy temprano ni muy tarde la gente este haciendo ruido en esta zona del hostel que en realidad si esta cerca de las habitaciones privadas.

También estamos en la búsqueda de mas adelante instalar algún tipo de aislamiento de ruido en las ventanas para que el ruido de la calle( Afuera del hostel), no moleste tanto en las horas de la mañana, cuando el movimiento de cualquier gran ciudad empieza.

Agradecemos tu opinion y estaremos mejorando....


Saludos,

We had some difficulties finding a nice hostel in Bogota with good location. Luckily a friend recommended 82Hostel! The hostel is fairly new, the decoration of the rooms is very nice and the common areas are very neath and oganized.

The biggest plus are the HOT showers with a lot of water! The breakfast is good, croissants, marmelade, granola with yogurt/ milk and fruits, coffee/tea.

We spent 5 nights in 82hostel and will definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Bogota!

82 hostel is a nice little hostel in a great bar/club area of bogota. The decoration and the rooms are really nice and everything is very clean. There is a lot of bathrooms so you will never have to wait in order to take a shower. It is a safe area and it's close to the transmilienio with which you'll be in the city center in less than half an hour. The breakfast was really good for hostel (cereals with fruits & milk and bread with marmelade).

We stayed here for a night and had a great experience, the Caribe room was large, good hot shower, very clean, great location. There was a bit of street noise but nothing you wouldn't expect from central Bogota. So we came back for another stay....and had a slightly different experience. We asked for the same room which as again great - but it's just off reception and the noise meant we had a totally sleepless night. There was music playing in reception all night and people sitting and talking to the receptionist until the early hours - I have a feeling they don't quite realise how thin the shared wall is between the room and reception! Ideally the receptionist would stop people gathering there at night and provide wifi in other areas of the hostel to prevent people from keeping other guests up all night! It's a shame as otherwise this could be the perfect hostel.

Room Tip: Caribe is lovely and large but just off reception so don't expect any sleep!

Brand new facilities. Comfy & clean bed. Very nice (free) breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The place is just 3 minutes walk from Transmilenio, close to party places but it's quite when you need to rest at night. Safe for individual travellers.
