    From beginning to end, my stay at Botanico was fantastic. The views from my room were beautiful. The room was comfortable and spacious. But the best part of the experience by far was the staff. I arrived to Bogota very late and made it to the hotel after 1:00 o'clock in the morning. Marianna was there ready to check me in. She was very kind and showed me to my room. Also, there was a miscommunication at check out which was not their fault at all. Again, they were so kind and professional. 11/10.

    This hostel had the best atmosphere I've experienced travelling. It was amazing how over the course of a couple of nights, the guests all became very close friends, and I think that's testament to the awesome environment the staff created. The location (old Candelaria) is stellar, and the beds were sensational. Not just comfortable, sensational!

    Lovely little hostel in La Candelaria with a cute rooftop and very nice staff. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and deco. Only little downside is that our room didn't properly lock from the inside as the doors were a bit old and fragile.

    Nice place to stay. Comfy beds and warm covers (you need them because it gets chilly at night). Pretty social, I met several people there. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The only downside is that there is no room in the hostel where it’s actually warm as all of the rooms are open to the outside

    Dissapointed by breakfast and a bathroom with someone elses dirty underwear still in the shower, but other than that, a decent hostel
