A basic but good hostel!


the hostel is located in nice colonial building in the area where most hostels are. Facilities are pretty basic: really small kitchen and just two showers for many visitors, but I had no issue with a line as there were not many people staying. Nice hammock area. It was ok place, but stuff really need to pay more attention to who talk to, as many colombians during my stay would just start asking staff questions and they would serve them without a line. It's quiet place, no party there for sure.

Best hostel beds I've stayed in a long time If not ever! Super comfortable and big, in a spacious dorm room. Common area also great, lots of movies, pool table, bar etc. we loved it here


We absolutely loved our stay! The location above all was perfect, nestled in the bohemian neighbourhood with everything at a stones throw. The staff were amazing, so helpful and kind, and the hot showers were a gift after a long day of exploring the city! Check out el gato Gris, really close by, for some of the best cuisine around!

We highly recommend this hostel. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts are really cheap and super delicious! The location is perfect and our room was really comfortable and had lovely hot showers. Its a very chilled hostel and everyone was really respectful when they came in after a night out. I would definitely go again. Thank you for a lovely stay


The rooms were not confortable and were very cold, the sheets were dirty, and we even had to buy soap and rent towels. The breakfast wasn't included and the portions were really small. The reception's staff didn't make a good atention, instead of that, the ladies who made the breakfast were very polite and friendly.

Very nice hostel in a great location, but staff could have been a bit more friendly, and the atmosphere was a bit dull. Other than that great facilities, and a comfortable stay for a few nights.


Cheap hostel so the rooms are fine for the money. One thing that definitely made our experience poor was the staff. One in particular was spectacularly unhelpful. Unfortunately we were mugged at knife point one night during our stay and she was very unhelpful in helping us sort it out. She didn't even seem sympathetic after what was obviously quite a traumatic experience. Shame as the hostel is well located for exploring the city so if the staff improved we would go back as it is good value.
