Insanely comfortable beds and vegemite on the breakfast menu so I was happy. Staff were really friendly and the hostel offered heaps of activities. Location was right near restaurants, shops and cafes which was handy. Only downside was that the hostel was pretty quiet, despite all the activities the staff were organising. I'd recommend this spot for anyone heading to bogota.

Very good hostel located centrally in Bogota old town - probably the best one. There is a free walking tour hosted daily by the amazing Freddie! The hostel organise daily activities (like going to watch a local football game, party bus, brewery tours, etc.), so great for solo travelers. Stayed 4 nights, but would have happily spent longer...

Amazing cleanliness, comfy beds, showers top class, cleaning ladies so nice (tip them in tip jar at desk!). Would stay again, definitely advise the craft beer tour as you get to see the less touristic side of Bogota look for Simon during the day at the hostel.

Amazing stay at the cranky croc. Staff was helpful and nice, facilities were clean and the beds were super comfy. There's a lot of fun stuff to do, highly recommend the party bus and the football tour. Thanks Freddy and Eddy

Great location near most sightseeing points of interest, Daily activities (walking, biking, graffiti, salsa, local soccer matches) organized which really help you explore the city. Daily walking tour was excellent; informative and emotional. Definitely more of a party hostel but the party remained pretty confined to the common area and the bars/clubs people poured out to. Lots of bars/restaurants nearby, safe during the day, but wouldn't want to make a wrong turn at night.

A really nice hostel. Always clean with amazing hot showers. The breakfast isn't free but it's delicious (omelette & pancake are highly recommended). It is well located, heaps of bars and restaurants nearby. Staff were very kind and helpful, helped me by printing off a bus ticket. Private room was cosy and pleasant. Free walking tour is worth doing. My only problem was the cat which kept yowling in the middle of the night, spoiling my sleep on nights 3 & 4 (I'm a cat lover but this wasn't good)
