Good hostel, wonderful breakfast, security is great. The free walking tour that runs every afternoon through "The True Colombian Experience" is great and one of the best tours I've ever been on. Only negative experience was when we asked the girl with the glasses about bars to go to, and she seemed annoyed that we asked her and told us the name of one bar very close to the hostel and that was it. We didn't mind traveling, we just wanted a good recommendation but she seemed to not want to help.

Really cosy, very safe with a security guard on the door, they put a nice fire on in the evenings, good place to meet other backpackers. Good chill out tv room with lots of bean bags and channels for the lazy days. Right in the middle of Candelaria.

A really nice hostel, big rooms, great bathrooms and showers which were always clean. Great breakfast (isn't included), friendly staff and perfect location. Only issue, there was pipe in the room which made a huge banging noise every 2-3 hours during the day/night which woke everyone and was very disturbing.

Hostel is around 20 minutes can from the airport. Good location near bars, restaurants and a really good graffiti tour which I would recommend - ask at the hostel for more details. Bathrooms and toilets are very clean and have hot water. Rooms are good with big lockers. Very good hostel and would happily stay here again.

Great hostel in a good location! The staff is really friendly and helpful. There is a nice commonroom with an open fire for the chilly nights. Sitting there in the evening drinking beers and meeting new people is great! The rooms are spacious and they have big lockers for your backpack. The bathroom facilities are very nice too! Fredy comes by the hostel every day and does a free walking tour witch was a nice way to get to know more about Bogota and Colombia. Would definitely stay here again!

Great hostel: comfy beds, fab location, friendly and helpful staff and a cool atmosphere. My only negative is that the kitchen isn't very well equipped. I've already booked to stay here again at the end of my trip.

This hostel is great to stay in, the staff are both friendly and helpful and it's in a great position in La Candelaria. The hostel organises BBQ 's and nights out and the main social area is great for meeting new people. The cleaning staff keep the hostel super clean and the facilities are good...excellent showers!

It's a great place to stay, very centric, nice, clean, and with many activities to do in the hostel or with their partners. When I stayed they were adding a new area or remodeling an old one so there was too much noise since 8 in the morning. The staff is great,thanks to William I decided to stay longer in the hostel and Bogota :)
