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.
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
there is staffs really kind n great! thank you so much to them
Great hostel with very friendly staff and the sweetest little hostel dog! Nice atmosphere, big kitchen and plenty of communal areas to hang out. Only stayed one night but would definitely stay there again if back in Bogota :)
clean hostel but lacked social atmosphere when I was there. Also at checkout, girl overcharged me and it took a 15 minute conversation to explain it her why it was wrong because she just kept shouting at me and being extremely rude. Even when it was clear that I had been overcharged , she proceeded to still have a go at me for some reason .. rather than just admitting she had made a small mistake, bizarre! However the english guy working there was really nice and helpful so thank god for him!
Super cold (colder within the hostel than outside) no hot water even though they advertise it and the water pressure is so low you can't really even shower. The beds are creaky and they turn off the lights in the common area early so it was hard to be productive anytime after 9pm. Though the staff meant well, they often gave us incorrect information. The best part of this hostel is the price, but honestly I would pay a few dollars more for a more comfortable place.
A great hostel. stayed in two others in the same neighborhood before, and this was by far my favorite... great atmosphere (not party but very friendly), great staff (every single one I met - friendly & helpful). definitely recommend this one
Nice hostel, super friendly staff! Good facilities, HOT showers, beds are rather small though.
I was supposed to stay two days and ended up staying well 8 days...I´m still there as I am writing this. Wi-Fi is super everywhere, Showers are warm (Tend to go a bit cold for a short time when a lot of people have taken a shower, avoid shower rush hour) Breakfeast is quite nice, cereals and toast, the basic. Beds are comfy, if tall, do take the 6 bedroom, longer beds. Clean also. Lastly the staff is amazing and will go out of their way to make you feel nice! Oh and there´s Bobby(doggy). Cheers
The staff at this hostel were so friendly, welcoming and informative! I really enjoyed staying here!
