I would give this place 3 out of 5. Not enough electric sockets available, especially not in the dorms area and you need to pay 5,000 COP for renting a towel if you're staying in the dorm. No places to hang your clothes in the not so great nor cleaned shower. Small lockers are around the lobby. None for the equipment. The staff are great and the location is fanatic. As I've, I would give this place 3 out of 5.

Internet sometimes hardly working, when working was ok. Pictures showcs nice hostel, in reality its not that beautiful. Double room is cold and just nearby common areas what makes it really noisy. Showers not tgat clean but ok.

Really sociable hostel run by a tireless two locals who strive to ensure everyone has a superb stay. Couldn't have been more generous, feels like a communal home.

10 bed dorm is a bit cramped and 3 bathrooms not enough for whole hostel. Good location in Candeleria and friendly staff.

The staff are super friendly, limited English though, but enough friendly Spanish speakers pass through to lend a hand. The two best dogs you could ask for, and great hot water showers.

I absolutely love this hostel. Two friends and i stayed here for the better part of two weeks. We stayed for a week, left for ten days and came back for another weeo and alegria let us leave our bags in storage for ten days! The staff is perfect. Viviana and alegria are the best. I could go on and on. The hostel is like a quaint intimate home, a short walk from the main piece of the candelaria. The kitchen is the best, they have tons of utencils and a decent breakfast in the morning. Stay here!

Favourite hostel in Colombia. Staff are really friendly and attempt to speak English. Rooms are extremely nice. Top bunk can be a bit of a death trap, but other than that perfect hostel.

This was an amazing hostel, good Wi-Fi, but no-one is looking at their phone. Everyone socialized in a quiet but fun environment, lots of return guests. You really need to do the cooking class, learning the local food. Algeria and all of her staff are amazing, they keep the place very secure, but still welcoming. This was a great place to stay in Bogota!
