Very good hostel, great showers, helpful staff and located in the old town, where you can go by walk to many touristic points.

Unfortunately there was an error with our booking so we didn't get to complete the reservation. We heard of the same thing happening to several other people too so be aware. We booked for the following evening but they only had space in a private which was much more expensive than a dorm. The facilities are great however and the location in a charming part of bogota,but no ping pong balls for the table! Staff at times helpful,at times moody

Only stayed for one night. Stayed in a private with ensuite, very nice. the neighbourhood surrounding the hostel at night seemed a little dodgey as we arrived during the night! During the day however was a different vibe people everywhere. Wifi was excellent, breakfast was good and the coffee was awesome.

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).

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.

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...

The 6 bed dorm was kind of cramped, but it worked out fine. There are plenty of common areas and the kitchen was great. Breakfast isn't included but you can buy it there. The bathrooms were kind of far from the rooms, but the hot showers were awesome. Super great location too - close to lots of things in La Candelaria.

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.
