The free dinner is a bonus, however the beds are hard and uncomfortable and the hot water isn't reliable. Whilst we were there the wifi also kept dropping out. Wifi, comfortable beds and hot water are three basic things a hostel needs, this wasn't redeemed by the staff but they were very friendly and helpful.


Great hostel! friendly and helpful staff!!!


The free dinners were surprisingly good. A unique atmosphere.

Awesome hostel, great staff. Will stay here again, definitely!! Super friendly and laid-back vibe.


I've probably stayed at 25+ hostels in my travels and this was one of my absolute favorites. Great layout, 4-bed ensuite where I can rent just one room and it was reasonably priced. Cool lounge areas downstairs and a cool bar upstairs where it was easy to meet people. The staff was excellent, extremely friendly and helpful with whatever questions I had about Bogota or getting around. They were also really cool to hang out with, especially Valentina!

Great staff, but theyre not always at the desk. Very run down hostel, toilets look terrible, walls need cleaning and repaint, bathrooms are scary. Garden smells like a dogs toilet. Great breakfast and big portions at dinner. Can only smoke between the front gates. Not much of an atmosphere until the hostel was full for NYE. Quiet enough at night, good location, but terrible beds and old torn linen.


Pretty fun, party hostel, small, with loud music 24h

It's dirty, there's no hot water in the showers, an they have BED BUGS! My advice: STAY AWAY!


For everything this hostel has going for it, the facilities let it down for me. Downstairs, music is blaring loudly from early morning until late night. Upstairs, a different lot of music is blaring loudly most of the afternoon, and the TV is usually on in the bar, and upstairs too. There aren't many quiet places here. Internet is poor and is best downstairs in reception. Don't try to skype though, cause the music is too loud. Washing is expensive and your clothes will not be looked after.
