Great People, great location.

While the hostel itself seems pleasant enough, we were dismayed with the level of noise in the room and the service provided. Our room - with a door which could not be properly closed - was adjacent to the common area, where one of the staff decided to have loud conversations with visitors until deep into the night, which could be followed word for word in our room. When asked if she could speak a little more softly, agree laughed - laughed! - at us and continued. We will not return here.

This is a quiet hostel with not a huge amount going on, it was fine, I just feel there would be better places to stay in Bogota. The staff speak no English at all. There were also no beers in the fridge! Terrible stuff.

Staff was absolutely wonderful; probably needs more outlets throughout the hostel, but all in all, fantastic! Would stay again in a heartbeat.

The hostel is excellent. Nothing to add. I have been in different places in Bogota, there are some nice hostels, but i think from service, location, security background: the best! Luis as the owner is so helpful with anything and to anyone. I come definitely back.

Nice hostel in a quiet, central location. Clean, lockers for valuables in reception (BYO lock), large dorms. Staff understanding of those of us with very poor Spanish. Nice common areas. Good choice.

This has been a very pleasant experience staying at this hostel, the owner and the staff in general were so kind and helpful in every aspect. I want to mention the excellent services it provides like a very fast internet connection, and the breakfast combos, for an extra cost, but were delicious! In general it is one of the best places to stay. I recomend , if you want a nice, clean, quiet and relax atmosphere, it is the place!

Don't go!never go! staff do not speak engligh, they know little about info needed, they are not that willing to help guests. i asked them help to check bus schedule and company info, they just asked me to go there to buy and said there are lots of company run the routes, the fact is only one at that day has the service. you need to be well prepared for all info yourself plus speak qutie good spanish. the bathroom is extremely slippery. hardly can feel they are thinking about service.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment and visit. In our business we deal with different attitudes , unfortunately yours ( very rude) from the beginning was not the best. One thing we are committed to is the customer service!

The rooms are simple and clean. The internet connection was fast and reachable at different areas. it has a colonial ambiance but modern at same time. And the best is its location, so close to important spots. I recommend it.

Nothing to complain about, really nice hostel. Excellent location and facilities for a good price. Simple but confortable rooms, also very clean. Quite simple breakfast but for the price it was fine. If you are visiting Bogota this is a great choice.
