Good hostel. A bit "young" ie expect some drinking games. Overall nice staff and beds and bathrooms are great value for money.

Honestly amazing. Yes, it might not have the softest beds or newest everything, but all that doesn't matter because what this hostel excels at is the facilitation of meeting people. I traveled to Colombia alone, and was immediately able to meet people at this hostel to hang out with for my remaining travel time. Don't want to meet people and need to catch up on some sleep? Well, the set of double doors allows zero of the noise from the main room to enter the sleeping area. Loved it.

Really nice and clean hostel with a good vibe. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom's always clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would everybody recommend to do the free walking tour the hostel is offering. Freddy the guide is just awesome and you experiencing a taste of Bogota and his history.

Decent hostel. Good location. Small common room, but that's good for being social. A little dark.

Great hostel and easy to meet other travelers. Amazing showers (like a hotel). My only two criticisms would be to put more comfortable seating in the common area and to put window fans in the dorms to improve air circulation, but otherwise highly recommended.

I spent 2 nights at this hostel and I must admit that it was awesome. the only thing I did not like was that we could not close the door from the room so pretty much anyone could get in at any time of the day. One of the best things was the breakfast. keep it up guys we'll see you soon

Enjoyed this hostel. Easy to meet people as they have one common room where everyone eats and chills. They also have a TV room if you want to watch the match or hang out. Helpful staff. Clean rooms and bathrooms. We were going to go back to Bogota and stay at this hostel again but decided to stay longer in Medellin.

Hostel is located near many museums and attractions in the core of la Candelaria. Fairly clean with many washrooms to use. Overall good choice if you want to be in la Candelaria

The hostel didn't look very promising when I entered the small reception area, but I was happy to discover that the toilets and showers were of the best standards I've ever seen in a hostel, really modern and clean. Nice choice of breakfast to order, friendly and accommodating staff. Lockers with socket for charging inside them is a very practical feature. The location is perfect in terms of the vicinity to all important points of interest as well as places to eat. Highly recommended!

Great spot close to the Calendaria scene with bike and graffiti tours, 5 minute walk to the cable car of Monserrate which is awesome, all kinds of food and drinks and good people around. Not a party hostel but they sell beer and have a nice space. Bathrooms are on point and showers are private and hot. Recommend for sure.

On the whole, very satisfied with this hostel. Lockers equipped with electrical plug inside are a very good idea. I appreciated the leaflet about the key places of Bogota centre too, but I think its content really needs to be checked / updated.

Excellent hostel, would definitely stay again. Extremely clean, good wifi and location during the day (you are better off getting a taxi up town in the evening (but they are cheap) or cooking. Great place to meet other travellers

Great staff. Extremely clean. Cranky beds - when ever anyone moves, the beds make cranky sound. Some bed lights not working. Overall, great place.

very good hostel. We lost our luggage and the staff was extreamly helpful in calling the airlines as we can not speak spanish. The hostel has a very good common room and it was extreamly easy to meet people.
