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.
one of the best Ive been in. the atmosphere is quite different though as I didnt had much chances of conversation.with new people
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...
Now that's what I call a good hostel! Super helpful staff, clean roosm, comfy beds, nice breakfast, beautiful common area and so close to main attractions! There could have been more showers and there are only two toilets for all men staying in shared rooms. If I have to recommend a hostel in Bogotá to anybody in the future I will definitely promote the Masaya!
Great place! Very nice staff, clean and nice rooms!
Lovely place to stay in a great location. Very clean. Great breakfast, open fire, comfy beds and friendly staff. Especially the lovely lady on reception! Will be staying here again!
Nice hostel, the private room was huge with a giant bed and tv. Wi-fi not available in the room though, only in common areas - should really fix this. Nice courtyards to chill out at, a bar, cheap laundry. Colombian staff at reception really helpful.
I stayed one week at the Masaya Hostel in Bogota. Met lots of great people through all ages, mostly longterm travelers. The Hostel has a nice design and a friendly staff. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back here.
A lovely hostel, clean, modern with comfy beds. Nice bar and staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in!
Awesome chill place. Tons of eats and drink places close by. Close to tours and museums. Stayed here for a few days and could have stayed much longer!
Fantastic experience. Great location and facility. Incredible showers. It would be great to have light sensors for the courtyard during the night. And internet wasnt working very well. I would highly recomend the hostel to any friend!!
Good atmosphere! Not to busy, realy nice beds. Perfect place to stay...

More like a hotel. Super clean, spacious, beautiful. Very very impressed! The receptionist is very helpful. She went out of her way to answer all my silly questions. I highly recommend this place!!!
Excellent location for culture and sightseeing. La Candelaria is a college/ Uni area. It's dead quiet during weekends. Posh night life a taxi ride in Zona Rosa. If you want to chill and meet other travelers, Masaya is the right hostel for you.
The best hostel ive ever seen.i recomend it 100%
Very very good hostel!! Our double room was new, very clean and a great king size bed: perfect! We had a shares natheid but that was also very clean and enough showers. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the breakfast was great for not even €3 and the laundry was also done really good and for a fair price. Really recommend the hostel but book in advance!
