Love the place.

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.

Pros - If you're looking for a nice quiet hostel but still in the centre of La Candelaria then this is the place for you. Great location and small enough to mean it feels very quiet even though in a busy tourist area. Friendly staff. Cons - If you're travelling on your own theres not much in the way of socialising here, there's an open dining area but thats about it. The hot shower was also quite temperamental! The street its on looks a little dodgy at night but we had no issues.

Loved the location, excellent area to walk around in. Felt like we were being taken care of by the "hostel moms". Quiet during the low season.
