Sophie, the owner, is always making sure all of her guests are taken care of. Her staff is on point; Nadya, Daniel y Andres are there to help you if you have any questions. I highly recommend the hostel. It has a great central location and it feels like a home away from home. Gracias para todo!

This is, what a Backpackers place is all about: Good vibes, helpful staff, plenty of advice, all technical facilities, cold beer and all of that for a pretty low price. This place is located perfectly in Candelaria, most museums and sights are just a short walk away, 8 minutes walk and you are in the heart of the city center. Nightlife and restaurants are nearby, supermarkets are within 5 minutes walk. The staff is really helpful, the place is full of advice what to do in Bogota.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in! Friendly without being party-focused, comfortable and great value for money.

Lovely owner and nice central courtyard to hang in. Beds certainly aren't the best but not the worst either. Great location.

A very nice and cozy place, where everybody feels like home. Perfectly located. They have everything you need from the internet to washing machines. The single room where I stayed was very small and it was also quite noisy there, but personnally it didn't really bother me and I'm pretty happy with my stay there :)

Thanks for your review. You probably stayed in one of our budget rooms which are smaller and close to the kitchen. Yes, they are located close to commen areas, but honestly, you can't beat the price of those single rooms. They are far from luxurious, but they are private at a very affordable price. Have a great trip and hope to see you again.

Clean in good location but unfortunately beds add most uncomfortable thing ever. And the rooms back onto the communal area and the front door. This means it is extremely loud in the dorms as the doorbell is constantly ringing and in the mornings from 7 it's loud from breakfast

Hi there, thanks for your review. Sorry you didn'tike the beds though. And yes, you are right, it can get a little noisy and that's why we have rules about noise, hence quiet hours from 11 pm (mindnight on weekends) to 6 am, so we try to deal with noise issues as best we can. That being said, when there are a lot of people, yes, sometimes it can get a little noisy. Hope you find a quieter place in the future. Have a nice trip.

Weird hostel. Lacks atmosphere or other backpackers. Would not stay here again!

If all that matters to you as a traveler is hot showers and fast wifi- this is the place for you. Other than that it wasn't a favorite. The day that we stayed the staff argued non-stop. Also, not the most ideal environment for smokers as they have no patio but you can stand on the sidewalk on the busy street.

Great place, fantastic guys, super clean. Too bad WiFi went out for a couple days, it'd have been 100 percent! Highly recommended!

Swiss Hostel Martinik is in a great location in the Poblado district where there are lots of bars, restaurants and coffee shops. While our room was up three flights of stairs, it was clean and spacious. They served a nice breakfast of coffee, egg and toast. My only negative for this hostal is that they have next to no common areas for relaxing and what they do have is very small. Even so we would recommend this hostal.

The hostel is in the candelaria area - central for sightseeing. Staff were great helpful and accommodating. Facilties particulrly wash areas are basic but sufficient. It is very much worth the cost, I had a single room. Good atmosphere and people.

Overall, the hostel is okay. I have stayed at better and have stayed at worse. Overall, I was indifferent. Try to avoid a private in tje back as that is were the laundry for the facility and guest is done. Rooms up front, dorms next to the reception area can be quite loud later in the evening. The buzzer is very loud, so keep that in mind for the privates up front. There is only one restoom with a mirror and electrical outlet on the second floor. Daniel was helpful.
