The rooms aren´t really soundproof (there´s a door to the room but also open space above it). Breakfast was good (tasty bread, only jam and butter).
Staff were friendly and helpful, and the dorm was quite spacious. There were not enough bathrooms for all the guests though and the kitchen utensils were continuously used by staff and then not cleaned. Location was good, close to a supermarket and within walking distance to the main square and the sights of the historic centre. Breakfast is basic (rolls and jam) but the rolls were fresh straight from the oven each morning.
Booked a double room which was fine for a short stay. Walls were very thin and the room was directly above the kitchen, so we were woken up by the neighbours and anyone coming in late. Shower was ok, a little dirty, and no hot water. Breakfast was the standard bread, jam and coffee. Staff were friendly, although not great English. We asked them to book us an early morning cab to the airport but it never arrived. Well located in the old town and near Bogota Bikes. Good wifi.
The way the hostel is decorated gives it a great vibe. Its a pretty mellow place so you really have no reason to stay there. If you want a good nights sleep, stay here. Most people seemed to be starting their travels in Colombia at this hostel so its not really a place to hang out and meet lots of other travelers.
Great little cozy hostel with a social atmosphere and an awesome cat. The hostel can be a little crowded when full, but good wifi, kitchen and great people make it a great place to stay. The warm blankets are appreciated.
Great hostel. Very nice staff, always recommending things to do and places to visit. Good breakfast. Hostel a great communal feel, makes it easier to meet and hang out with other people. Hot showers are consistent unlike other hostels I've stayed at in Bogota. And this is still one of the cheapest hostels in all of Colombia.
Located at the top of the hill in La Candelaria the hostel is in a great location for exploring Bogota. The hostel is small but has a good vibe. The staff are really helpful and can sort you out with any information you need. Would definitely stay there again.
This hostel has a lot of character and SHOULD be better than it actually is.staff were the major let down.beds in the dorm are not safe (though look very pretty). I was on the top bunk. There was no ladder...and I fell off, hit my head...and the staff did not care. It's happened to others, so do something about it! It's in a great central area, however, so use it as a base. If you've travelled a lot, you'll have seen fantastic hostels, and bad ones. This is in middle, so don't expect much.
