A great hostel in a central part of town that was clean, had a good vibe, plenty of space to chill in one of the communcal areas after a day out and about. Excellent breakfast (included in private room but 8k for dorm).
Quiet. Clean. Helpful staff!!
One of my favourite hostels so far in South America. Amazing dorms with individual curtains, lamps and plug sockets. Lots of chill out areas and a great kitchen. In a lovely area too.
Great hostel, lovely staff and it's in a great location too. Breakfast isn't included but you can buy it there or go to any of the cafes nearby. Plenty of hot water in the showers and the bathrooms are single sex.
Contrary to what is preached by a lot of quotes and "yoga" spirit of the place, I feel that the hostel's workers are bad treated by the owner. It is a shame that such a beautiful place is managed in a so terrible way against the minimum dignity that the excellent workers deserves. The pilows and mattresses are very old. All days they offer the same juice at the breakfast when Colombia has a lot of fruits. And all days the owner puts the same song that after the first hour can make you crazy.
Great hostel with great people in an awesome location. 100% recommended.

Great time at Masaya, with the best breakfast and the nicest staff :)!
Awesome!! Really had a great time here, the staff were really helpful and fun people to talk to. Thanks for making Bogotá as amazing as it was
Some exceptional ratings here for an exceptional hostel experience in an historic building tucked away in the Candelaria quarter of Bogota. The flagstone courtyards and patios only add to the character and relaxed atmosphere of the whole hostel and the staff work very hard to ensure that you are informed, engaged and get a very real taste of genuine Colombian hospitality. Outstanding.
I've of my favourite hostels on my whole trip! Amazing location, excellent staff. Super clean, curtains on bunk beds with your own electricity sockets and light are such a luxury for backpacking! Breakfast not included but you can't have everything...
Very nice, clean, relaxed hostel in very good location. Has an excellent cafe next door.
Great location in the heart of the Old Town, pretty walkable to everything in La Candelaria. Staff is friendly, wifi is good, common areas are spacious. On the downside, there are HUGE troubles with hot water (no chance to have a hot shower in the morning). Don't have a breakfast here (8K COP), better go outside and have a better deal in one of the cafes. Generally a decent place to stay.
I love that each bed in the dorm has a curtain, reading light, and outlet. I also like that there is a locker in the room as well as a drawer under the bunkbed resulting in plenty of storage. I just wish the communal showers had hooks to hang towels and clothing.
Definitely the best hostel we stayed in in Colombia. Awesome facilities, the beds are amazing, really helpful and friendly staff, in a really good area/location too. Only bad thing- on hostelworld and our booking confirmation it says breakfast included with all private rooms, turns out it's only included with some (not all) private rooms, so that's misleading.. Other than that, highly recommended
Great hostel. Could have had more bathrooms for the dorms but apart from that it was perfect. As we were getting in out 6:30 am taxi the receptionist said we hadn't paid for our breakfasts, bleary eyed and confused as when we had paid our night the day before they said we would pay for our breakfasts then I argued and didn't pay, thrown off by them splitting the deposit between two of us rather than just me. Realised later what had happened and now feel bad. Sorry night receptionist!
As Colombians say, this place has the three Bs, bueno, bonito and barato (good, beautiful and cheap). Very comfortable and pretty space, friendly people, clean bathrooms, perfect location, generous breakfast. An excellent price-quality relation!
Beautiful hostel located in La Candelaria district of Bogota. The facilities were excellent and very well maintained and the staff made good recommendations for stuff to do and places to eat. I would say however, that it was a little too quiet for me, but that's just my preference.
It's a lovey hostel with great facilities. The private ensuite room is great value for money. However it is very cold with no heating. Also the shared bathroom is nice and clean but it has little protection from the cold outdoors.
I enjoyed my stay at Masaya Hostel. It is a very clean hostel and all dorm beds come with a curtain and own sockets. It is very well located in la candaleria close to many good food places. The hostel puts a lot of effort to create social events in the hostel and staff are always helpful. My only dislike was there seemed to be a lot of mother and toddlers there during my stay which changed the dynamics and atmosphere of the hostel a little but overall it was good
Pros-Great showers, nice modern dedor , good wifi where available, beds are comfy & we really liked the curtains that go round each bed! Cons-wifi only in the 2 of the common areas & not in the bedrooms or the common area closest to our room. Asked the grumpy young guy at the reception about the coffee tour & to book it for us but he said he didnt know how too...
