It's the second time I stayed here. I had a double room with an en suite which was spacious, clean and had a comfortable bed and a hot shower. The hostel is in an old colonial house with lots of character and a little rough around the edges. Breakfast was included and the staff are very friendly and easy going. Good value and recommended.


Good with cheap private rooms in the middle of candelaria. Nice old lady guardening the door during the day. Transmilenio terminal las aguas is about 5 min walk and can take you to a lot of places in the city incl. Eldorado airport (1500 cop).


Friendly place werll-located in La Candelaria a short distance from Las Aguas transport stop, simple breakfast and comfortable beds


Over all it was a nice stay anyhow it was not one of the cleanest hostels we stayed at (hair everywhere on The sheets)... Staff is very friendly and location is good close to the market.

I had a great time at Tip Top! Well worth what I paid. Good open atmosphere; great part of town; loads of info on tours and sights; and friendly staff, especially Maria (who speaks good English if you haven't figured out the Spanish yet).


Very kind owner family who helped us a lot with lost baggage


A basic hostel in La Candelaria but with a pleasant atmosphere and comfortable room. Easy to get around from here. Staff very amiable and breakfast included.


The nicest and most helpful staf! We had a great time while staying there! Definitely going back when in Bogota!

Staff are super helpful. I loved being just around the corner from the nice restaurants. This is a hostel that depicts Colombia.


Really good host and cute (Old) lady who makes awful coffees haha. When you arrive at the hostel , you'll get good information about bogota and the location is perfect!


We had no light in our room and we had to wait until late so they could get it fixed. They had no locker in the rooms and the windows of the room could not be locked as well
