Nice, quiet hostel. Comfortable beds and lots of communal showers and toilets as well as one in our dorm. Staff is very helpful and play good music. ;) Recommended for people like me who like it on the downlow.
Great and safe place to stay if La Candelaria isn't your style. Steps away from a main street where you can access cafe's, grocery store and buses.

A great hostel, homely, with good and friendly staff. Not a party hostel - dorm buddies will get out of bed early. Perfect for staying long. The smaller dorm is worth it since it has thicker duvets (at least mine had). Free breakfast fine, nice decor. I find the area much more pleasant than Candelaria where most hostels are located and I've stayed several times before. In general it is also more expensive but cheap eats can be found.
It was pretty relaxed and quiet. Staff were nice and facilities were clean. I was only there for the night, so didn't get to explore the area much. The room was a little bit pricey for what it was. One thing to note - there is no sign outside, so you might think you've arrived at a private house at first, but just knock and it's the place!
Great place in Chapinero area, which is centralized if you want to explore La Candelaria and Zona Rosa. Area feels safe and the hostel feels very cozy like staying at someone's home. The staff were excellent. Anna Maria and Oscar were superb in helping and welcoming me, and were also very professional. Will definitely stay here again on my return to Bogota.
Great hostel. Very homey feel. Nice place to relax after backpacking for a few months. Very helpful and knowledgable staff. Good breakfast and wifi. Location at a nice distance from center and from party areas. Great kitchen.
La Pinta was a beautiful hostel, it was the first hostel on my trip and a felt pretty spoilt to be starting there! The bathrooms are great with hot showers and hgh pressure, beds are comfy, there are great communal areas where you can chill out and chat to people, and it's very close to the bar scene at Calle 85 as well as loads of cool restaurants! The staff are really cool, there are powerpoints by every bed as well as in lockers which is great, couldn't ask for a better place.
The staff was great and facilities were very clean. When I stayed there many of the guests were in Bogota for work so the atmosphere was pretty quiet, definitely not a party hostel.
Hostel isnt near anything worthwhile. Staff were very sweet and helpful. Hostel is quite old / cold & dated
Great place to start off a trip. Plenty of common areas to meet people, friendly and helpful staff, and good
This hotel is located in Chapinero walking distance from a supermarket and several restaurants and a short distance to calle caracas which has pretty much anything you could need from a sim card to other necessities. The hotel has a buzzer system which gets you in and there is someone around 24/7. During my stay I met a few people in the common areas and enjoyed hearing about their travels and what plans they had. The staff was helpful telling me where I could buy a sim card for local service.
I thought it was useful to have the plugs for each bed and the sheets were well above the normal hostel standard. The atmosphere on the Monday I was there was pretty dead but maybe that was a one off. Staff weren't hugely helpful and had limited knowledge of what to do in their own city. The area was safe but nothing much going on...

Fantastic place to stay when visiting Bogota. Whatever you do, don't stay in La Candelaria. It's not safe, full of tourists and there's nothing to do at night. Plus you miss the rest of the city, which is the real Bogota. Chapinero is a much nicer neighbourhood and you can pop into La Candelaria (or anywhere) any time you want. The staff at La Pinta are amazing, great lockers, really clean, showers are really good too. Great bar and good atmosphere.
Good hostel. Breakfast just ok. Facilities and decor a little dated. Good place to meet people.
Super hostel. Fast wifi, great showers and a nice bar where meeting people was easy. Ill be back when I fly out of Bogota in 2 weeks had a great stay!
Very nice place with good facilities and nice helpful staff!
Great staff, excellent location, top hostel. Huge yummie breakfast with cereal, fruits and toast. Free coffee. Quiet at night and big hostels in the dorms. Best hostel I've been to in my entire trip, value-wise and atmosphere. Mattresses are great, too, as well as the spacy and hot showers. Five stars all the way.
Cool dogs are always good to have in a hostel. Although they say newly remodelled, I think this only applies to the bathrooms - they're pretty nice. The rest of the place has an authentic 70s vibe to it. I've tried a few places in Bogotá - La Pinta is not a bad choice
Thanks a lot to the very helpful and skilled staff, always friendly, always trying hard. Big breakfast! Great location.
