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.

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.

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!

I really liked the big spaces in the hostel. Staff was ok not rude so that was ok. A little too dark at night, they should leave something on at night at least so I can see where I go. Nice area to walk around all day in LA Candelaria but very little to do outside at night, in fact if going out at night only option is to take a taxi only if you must go out. The place was clean comfy. Thankfully they sell reasonably priced beer. :)

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
