Awesome bbq on Fridays and super fun party bus on Saturdays. Cleanest bathrooms of any hostel.
The cranky croc was amazing... William the guy on reception was so helpful and friendly... He printed our plane tickets off for us and book our taxi.... Breakfast was really yummy and showers were incredible ... Location was great and defiantly recommend doing the free walking tour with Freddie it was great fun..
Lovely hostel, with friendly staff. Had a great stay.
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.
Great hostel in candelaria. Very clean, comfy warm beds, friendly and helpful staff and great social area for a few beers / excellent breakfast
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!
Everything considered, The Cranky Croc is one of the best hostels I've stayed In. The atmosphere is good, but not overwhelming, the staff are helpful and friendly, the security is excellent (even a bouncer), the whole building is clean, especially the showers and the location is good. The room rates are also very competitive. Excellent stay.

Nice hostel in a convenient location near food and night-life and also the Montserrate mountain. nice dorms and great value for money... decent cat aswell :)
Had a great time at Cranky Croc. Breakfast took too long. Everything else was great.
Good hostel in the middle of La Candelaria. There are a lot of organized activities by the hostel and the common area is very nice. The staff is as well very helpful and mostly in a good mood

Only stayed here one night, but I thought it was a very nice hostel!
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!
Had really good time here, great staff team from the guard, front desk, cleaning staff, good job! Clean, good location, easy to meet other travelers, activities, good beds, real hot showers.
good area for backpackers, walking distance if not short cabs to many places, security guard on the door every night and very friendly staff. over booked our dorm so we received a free upgrade to a private room 10/10
One of the best hostel we stayed at. Great location, lots of info on what to do, helpful staff, met some great people, the facilities are brand new, good restaurants closeby,... So good we ended our Colombia trip here too, so we stayed in total for 6 nights or so!
Great staff, good showers, a great place to meet people
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 :)
Loved this hostel. Great location and they have many tours avaiable (walking/biking/party bus/etc). Super helpful staff. Great lounge area with a fire pit, nice breakfast selection, and good company. Central to the historic district Candelaria, churches, bars, and more. Comfortable bed with warm comforter for cold nights. Nice, hot showers- best facilities of my whole trip. Would highly recommend this hostel to future Bogota travelers!
