Inviting & welcoming hostel, lots of friendly people about. Pretty quiet and relaxed which was ideal for us! Central location, lots of bars and restaurants around. Only small issue was the hostal next door playing loud music until 8am! Would recommend this hostel!
We stayed here a number of times while traveling around. Great hostel , clean , friendly , kitchen as everything you need and sweet little bobby the dog!
Great hostel and breakfast. Nice kitchen and common room areas. Well worth a visit . Front rooms (1&2) get a lot of street noise so book the back rooms if you are a light sleeper
They published they accept credit card, but upon payment they lied its broken, then said it already covered all credit card payments for the month (it was only the 6th). After arguing for some time that we didnt have cash they talked to the owners and the machine magically started working again. They decided to charge us an extra 7% which never happened in other hostels.
Good hostel in a good location. Staff was very kind and helpful. Great luggage storage option for leaving your big bags for as long as needed.
Good location in la candelaria, unfortunately the staff was somewhat distant and it could get noisy at night. You get what you pay for. Good kitchen.
The Colombian staff are all very helpful and nice, facilities are pretty good but the beds are awful! Plastic pillows and matresses? So horrible! Also our room was pretty cold and next to the road so was quite loud, it's ok for a couple of nights though
Basic but very adequate hostel in the heart of La Candelaria. Excellent value for money. Everything's walkable. Good wifi and hotwater. Breakfast included. Lockers for valuables; laundry service on site. Mostly quiet – not a party hostel (quiet requested later in the evening). Great security. Very clean. What mostly makes the place are the owners and staff: very pleasant and helpful. For a very inexpensive stay in the heart of the historic center – highly recommended.
The Martinik works very well. The people that works in the hostel are very kind anda helpfull in anything you need.
Location is perfect! Staff is friendly and helpful, the Kitchen is quite good, they have lots of suggestions for stuff to do, wifi works great, common room areas are plenty and comfy. If you're a light sleeper the 10 bed dorm might not be the best idea though. It's a good room but you'll hear quite a bit of noise from the busy street out side.
Staff and the owner are fabulous. Couldn't do enough to help me. Great location and easy for taxis to find. Friendly chilled atmosphere. You can bring your own alcohol on site too! Novelty! Great facilities including large kitchen with unlimited free coffee and they even give you a towel. It's one of the cheapest hostels in South America. All round fantastic. Made some great memories and friends here. Well worth staying! Griff
It was sooooooooo nice!! people are kind, location also was good, too. I wanna visit here if i go back to colombia.
Great hostel in bogota, much better than the first hostel I stayed at, good staff, nice layout, but not a party hostel but still social! Highly Recomended
The hostel had a good location, central in Candelaria. Lots of nice things around there, and the old town seems charming. The workes are ok. Horrible was my bed! Like a piece of plastic that pillow, slept so bad on it. The rooms are overpriced for Colombia, cos' I slept afterwards in another hostel which was way more comfortable and cheaper.
Excellent location, awesome internet, very friendly owner that made my stay enjoyable. plenty of separate communal areas which is always handy to have your own chill out zone. a very well presented hostel thats always clean.
We stayed here in February. There's a great kitchen and movie area here, dorms are ok, quite dark though, no natural light in the room, which was annoying at times, there weren't enough outlets in the room either. Showers are good, hooks on doors etc. It's a bit far out of town too.
A very pleasant and relaxing stay, just what I needed after a gruelling flight from London!
This is a great hostel. Showers were always hot. Breakfast is help yourself and includes granola alongside the usual bread. Plenty of secure lockers for valuables both in the rooms
Facilities : great wifi, Powerpoints galore, not too many bathrooms Vibe: chilled. Nice owner and staff. Good location and secure.
The only problem is that the 10 bed dorm is in front of the very noisy Street but the other rooms are quiet. Central,safe accomodation with a very kind and helpful staff and a good, friendly atmosphere. A good place to relax after the visit of the"jungle" Bogota
