Cranky Croc is well located, in walking distance of sights and museums as wel as restaurants and bars. The room was very clean and the bathrooms are really modern. Staff were friendly and always happy to give advice and recommedations about the city. Would recommend!

Based on the description we expected a more lively hostel, however it really lacked atmosphere. We were here during the week but it wasn't very sociable. Also it claims they have a bar but in reality they just had bottled beers for sale at reception. Security lockers were very good and so was the kitchen and WiFi. Toilets and showers were clean and modern. Hostel was one of the most expensive in the area and didn't include breakfast, Hostel Sue seemed better value.

This was a great hostel in terms of the facilities and the staff. It was super easy and fun getting to know people, both in the common areas and in ther dorms. Great location too, would recommend to solo travellers and groups! Only negative is that one day the Internet was incredibly slow, but usually good.

The Must-do is the free walking tour with Freddy, the coolest guy in Bogota. Also the party bus was awesome. Clean bathrooms and clean room, perfect location and wonderful activities.

We stayed two nights in a private room at the Cranky Croc Hostel. It's located centrally in La Candelaria and the main sights are easily reachable by foot. The room was good and the shared toilets and showers are modern and work very well. The atmosphere was nice and we enjoyed the breakfast that you could order in the morning. It's a good hostel to explore Bogotá and do e.g. the Graffiti or Bike tour. We'd definitely recommend it!
