very nice rooms, very clean bathrooms and showers. i have been many times to bogota and this is the best hostel. only the bbq night was overpriced and the breakfast that you can order is quite small but still tasty.

Good atmosphere, helpful staff, clean and secure. The neighborhood can be dangerous after 10 pm. The hostel arranges taxis for a price over the meter, probably with known taxi drivers. They would say that was for security reasons, but it did not seem honest to me.

This place is pretty cool, it had a really nice vibe and it was easy to meet people. The showers and bathrooms were insanely clean and the shower water was hot and high pressure.

You can really tell the person who designed it has spent a lot of time in hostels as everything is very well thought out. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the big lockers were great! The toilets and (hot) showers are cleaned regularly and there are laundry facilities too. The staff are really helpful and very friendly and the security guard at night helps if you are worried about security. Cranky croc was probably the best hostel I've stayed in and would definitely recommend!

Really loved Cranky Croc! One of the best hostels i have stayed at from the hostel perspective rather than the people you meet - great location in La Candeleria - only a 2 min walk to the graffiti walking tour. Rooms are a great size with individual lockers, lights and plugs, super useful! Beds are comfy and warm which you need in Bogota. Showers were amazing! - hot, clean and private. Had a really nice social area downstairs by the coal fire too. Overall, definitely recommend!
