It's a very good place. There can be some confussion with the prices and types of rooms you make through this site, but the people there are glad to help you with that.

Candelos is a small cozy hostel in the middle of La Candelaria where all the hostels are. It's near the main sights in Bogota and has a lot of bars and restaurants in the área. The hostel itself is built in an old house with a rooftop terrace which gives him a special atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall I would defintely recommend it


Candelos was great, all the staff were friendly, fun and very helpful. The showers were really nice and much needed after weeks of cold ones. A good relaxing and welcoming atmosphere made the stay perfect. The lockers are very safe, better than most other hostels, and the kitchen suited all my needs. They have lots of activities but the cinema night was my favourite by far.
