A nice cheap hostel (by Colombian standards) in a good location in the historical part of Bogota. Small breakfast, good wifi, helpful staff.


Kevin, the owner, is nice. His tour was really appreciated. We enjoyed to stay there but the location was bad (even though the cab only costs 1 dollar) so we moved to another hostel, which was cheaper and closer to the centre.


Really good hostel!

Felt like home!!


Management and staff were very friendly and helpful. Hints: Lock in bathroom needs attention and hooks in shower area would be helpful.


Staff were very helpful even though they spoke very little English and I myself very little Spanish. Great view of Monserrat from the courtyard!

We arrived late at night, without help or information were shown our room. Room next to entrance and communal area, lots of noice, terrable matrasses, lots of hairs on the matras and we could not lock our private room. Next morning they had no information, on the map they even needed time to find where their own hostel was located, had no change because we wanted to check out and had to change the money ourselves. No effort from staff, bad negative vibe. There are plenty great other options.


Located in an area used by students and can be very noisy at weekends


Hostel is ok, breakfast is nice, but you can't get in or out of the hostel without the help of the staff, which can be anoying. Nothing special, but quite cheap, so ok overall.


Awesome value for money ratio! Cosy place, friendly staff and everything was clean. We even got a small breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

There are 2 tiptop hostels. i was in kra 1 bis no 12d-78. The lady was not nice at all. 1.my spanish is bad, but there is no reason to get impatient with me when i have a question. i am a paying customer. 2.she didn't even know where the hostal was located on a map. 3.when i paid, she recounted the money, then blessed me, after she was unkind all the way before. it was so strange! the younger employed people were VERY nice, though, sorry for them...
