Property Information:

We, the new owners of Musicology, are long-time backpackers that between us have visited more than 50 countries and slept in hostels in all of them. Implementing the wisdom we've acquired along the way we are proud to operate the dream hostel, offering the highest standards of accommodation, cleanliness and a welcoming multilingual staff for the best value.

Our beautifully-restored colonial house has two patios and hammocks to chill out in. We offer a fully-equipped bar and lounge with reasonably-priced food and drinks and a daily happy hour as well as a common room to watch movies, hang out and use high-speed internet on our public computers for free. WiFi is also available at no charge throughout the entire hostel.

We often offer live music and have an awesome speaker system in the bar but at the same time strictly maintain quiet hours to make sure that anyone who wants a peaceful night of sleep gets it.

All of our dorms have big lockers and our en-suite deluxe rooms have recently been remodeled and are among the best of all Bogota hostels!

All of our breakfast options include unlimited colombian coffee, tea, fresh fruit juice and you may choose between such options as fresh croissants, eggs, pancakes, waffles, fruit plates, oatmeal and traditional arepas toasted with farmers cheese. We offer free towels, local calls, use of our guest kitchen, a book exchange, free and secure luggage storage for as long as you need, complimentary use of hostel facilities after check-out time and early check-in at no charge should your room or bed be available.

Our reception is 24-hours, there is no curfew or lockout, we offer laundry service and even a Friday-night bar hopping party bus!

In addition to the high-quality services we provide, we also pride ourselves on our ecological principles. We are among a small few of hostels in Bogota that recycle and all wood used in the hostel from our bunk beds to the bar and reception came from demolition sources.

Our amazing staff will be more than happy to assist you with your onward travels, advice on what to do in Bogota and just about anything else you need.

So come stay at Musicology and let the music rock your soul!!!

    The good: +The new owner was very hard-working and a really helpful guy. +Great location. Walking distance to a lot of museums +Very clean The bad: -Only one key per dorm caused problems. People would leave the room unlocked and sometimes the key went missing meaning I was locked out of my room. -The noise from the bar. Despite signs saying to reduce the noise after 10pm the bar staff didn't turn the music down or close the door. -The noise in the morning from the kitchen radio!
