A very nice hostel, very clean and an awesome atmosphere about the place. Definitely recommended.


A good base for a few days in Bogota: helpful staff, comfy beds, clean and in excellent location. Would go back!


The staff is not only nice but also very helpful with all the information I needed to get around n do things on my own. The location is also perfect. I can recommend this awesome place to anyone.


The hostel is well located, the staff are helpful (especially Daniella at the front desk who is an utter delight), and the facilities are good. However, the beds have dubious rough stains on them and the atmosphere when I was there was quiet and boring. Had friends who stayed at other better hostels.

Good morning, Thank you for your opinion and your advice! We are satisfied that you appreciated the site and the professionalism of our personnel. Concerning the noise, we will change and reorganize the hostel and add new rooms!!! Best regards!


Perfect hostel! Great location, clean and spacious rooms, beds have curtains to add a little privacy, several areas to hang out and meet other travelers, but still quiet at night. Oh, and the staff was excellent. Will definitely stay there again!


I have to say there wasn't anything majorly wrong with this place but it did lack amy atmosphere. Bathrooms also bit too far away from rooms. Decent if wanting good night sleep.


Well located, clean hostel with spacious rooms and decently sized in-room lockers. Lots of sit-down areas in multiple courtyards and a good bar area too. The bar closed down very early the night we were there, though, and people weren't allowed to sit and chat in the common areas after that. Still probably the best hostel option in Candelaria.

Great friendly staff, very clean, nice hostel. Restaurant was nice and breakfast was good, but the rest of the menu was very limited. Overall we enjoyed it here.

En general, la estadía estuvo bien. Algunos del staff no fueron muy amables. Además, se nos recargó un 5% por pago en tarjeta de crédito cuando no estaba establecido previamente. Otra cuestión es que la llave de la caja de seguridad no permitían que te la lleves, por lo que quedaba a cargo del staff de ahí que no me quedaba tranquilo.

On Hostelworld's website the mixed five people dorm were described as "Deluxe", I don't agree. The bathroom is three stairs down and the walls are super thin, not allowing too much sleep. I guess my disappointment mostly is based on the wrong impression and information given in the website.
