I really liked the new hosts of Martinik, they are the best ever!
They have a map of the most important attractions to discover quickly Bogota. For me this and other tourist information, the friendliness of the people and the central location makes this Hostal perfect.

Our room was average - small twin with window looking on to a wall. Opposite the showers. Breakfast included (yay!), includes cereal and toast. Located on a slightly dodgier area of La Candeleria - we were more cautious about going out at night here. Okay hostel, but not my favourite in the area.
I am giving a lower rating on the security because the front door was left open a couple of times. The lower rating for the staff is because I had a hard time hearing them at check-in, and they would not speak up.
Very nice staff and good location...I would stay in this hostel again
Its right in the center of La Candelaria, surrounded by bars and cafes and tourist sites, very easy to get to by bus or taxi. The girls working at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful, and it was an overall fun, welcoming atmosphere. Showers and rooms are clean and there is a book exchange, plus free breakfast and coffee all day. If I return to Bogota, I will definitely stay here again.
My room next to the kitchen was tiny and way too noisy.
The staff was helpful, friendly, and very accommodating. The hostel had a large variety of room choices all reasonably priced. The showers were great and the facilities for cooking were amazing, a huge grill in the front and a massive back kitchen. Strongly recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Bogota.
