Great location, 5 min walk to the gold museum


Cute small and quiet hostel in La Candelaria, which was very home like. We stayed in the private room which was very comfortable. Staff at the hostel spoke limited English but were helpful in ordering taxis etc.


Small hostel. Nice crowd and staff!


Very nice atmosphere. ..you really get to know the people in your hostel especially during breakfast. The breakfast was alright, bread with jam, and loads of coffee. The staff is amazing. Felt more like a home than a hostel.


Nice showers, good location. Decent breakfast. Big tv for worldcup, but not enough seats...

Thank you. Your opinion is very important to us and we are improving every day.


Not a party hostel, but a good social hostel. The staff is really good.

Thanks Matthew. Enjoy your trip and we hope too see you soon :)


Great hostel and awesome staff. Comfy beds and hot showers. Kitchen is a bit cramped but just get in there at an unusual time to beat the crowds. The taxi they called us a massive rip off, asked the price for a journey on entering, he replied on meter, and then he had a tablet meter not a proper one which we couldnt see counting up, as it was gps, phone and everything else. Cost us 40k to the bus terminal, we disagreed and he got very agressive. Just watch out for the sneeky f*ckers.


If you like small hostels this is the place to stay in Bogota. Clean kitchen and bathrooms, basic breakfast incl, good atmosphere.

Thanks a lot .


Hostel was OK in general. The staff member from Argentina was very friendly and helpful while his fellow staff member was ice cold (unhelpful). Breakfast is basic but coffee is good. Some of the rooms do not have windows. The bathrooms are cramped unless you are a hobbit. Lack of shower heads meant it felt like I was getting the hose.


One of the best hostel experiences I've had. Great staff, very helpful and they actually were more like friends to the guests! Located in the attractive Candelaria area, filled with bars on small, narrow streets. The area is a big hang out spot for students because of the two universitites located close to/in the area. Also very beautiful interiors, and the hostel was set up so it's pretty much inavoidable to not immediately meet the other hostel guests.

Thanks a Lot !!!!!


-facilities are mediocre -location in La Candelaria is great, a block or so away from a square with some fun bars and locals hanging out -decent enough breakfast is included -good value i thought, about $10 for a dorm room in a good location

Facilites are mediocre? why? you are the first person in two years with that opinion. Good value and 77 % ? Good luck!


Good location, friendly staff, very nice and lovely decoration, I felt very comfortable and will stay there again.
