    Bogota, Colombia

    I went during winter and it was terribly cold. The centre is a bit of a tourist trap but Zona Rosa is quite nice. I'll go back to Colombia, but I think I'll stay in Medellin.

    Insider Tip:Go to Zona Rosa during the day.

    Just make sure you understand reviews when booking

    I had read previous reviews so was aware of the noise, and I can handle some noise, but the way the private room is built makes it like an sound-catcher of whatever is going around, Plastic on mattress and pillow is annoying, and the pillow was a rock. The towel was too old. It was really difficult to sleep. I couldnt connect to wifi in my room. Breakfast was good (though I would add fresh water!!). Staff is helpful and willing to help.

    Insider Tip:Wouldn't book a private room in the back part of this hostel.

    La Candelaria

    The Graffiti tour, Museo del Oro, and Montserrat Chapel are a must do. Great meat restaurants in Bogota and many talented artists, singers, hustlers, and chess players can be found on Carrera 7

    Insider Tip:Bundle up, beaware, and move with a purpose.

    La Candelaria

    Bogota is a very massive, overpopulated, and cold city at about 8, 500 feet. In the Andes Mountains. The energy, music and art scene are amazing. Very good food can be found downtown El centro Carrera 7. Most areas can be walked to within El Centro and the Monserrate Cable Car tour is a must do.

    Insider Tip:Bundle up, beaware, and have a NY state of mind in Bogota.

    Bogota

    Much nicer city than we expected, worth a visit if you have time, the old city is nice, rest of the city is a bit rough.

    Insider Tip:Gold museum is excellent, as is the graffiti tour and the BBC (Bogota Brewing Company)
