large clean, airy hostel in good location in la candelaria. staff are super friendly and really helpful. comfy beds with plenty of blankets for those chilly nights. plenty of bathrooms with hot showers. Plenty of chillout areas including a nice breakfast area out the back.


Really nice place, great staff and a really relaxed atmosphere!


Utilitarian hostel; cold at night so bundle up. Showers hot but temperamental. Quiet hostel.


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
