Very safe hostel. Local police take their break in the hostel common area which makes you feel quite certain your belongings are always safe. Friendly staff, clean facilities, close to a bus line, but not sure how bread and coffee is considered "breakfast". I will say tho that when we arrived at 8am to check in the staff were very friendly and offered us all the facilities, including the breakfast, to use. Nice when you've taken an overnight bus.

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. The staff were all Colombians, instead of wayward shanghaied backpackers, and were very helpful, and could give plenty of advice for life in Colombia. In addition the hostel was used by quite a lot of latin-americans, both colombians and from other countries, which set it apart from the hostels were it's all australians and americans, and you don't even get a chance to speak spanish. Would highly recommend.

All the staff were helpful and friendly. There were only a few big lockers that were occupied so we had to use the smaller lockers that didn't fit our big backpacks. Thank goodness we weren't staying in a dorm room.

The hostel is very well located, right in the historic part of the city and one block away from transmilenio (bus rapid system). There is many spots to visit ight next to the hostel. The facilities and service was excellent, the staff is very nice giving many tips to know the best places of the city. Very clean hostel and great to meet other travellers, so when you come to Bogota this is a great option to stay.
