    Don't have one bad word to say about this hostel. Some of the nicest and warmest staff I've ever met, easy to meet people, plenty of activities and decent location with a sweet view from the rooftop / breakfast area. Wish I had more time here.

    I would highly recommend Botanico for it's perfect location and extremely friendly, helpful and fun staff. The rooms were really clean. Breakfast was included and consisted of an omelette, toast, fresh fruit, juice and coffee! Every day and night there are different activities - we even tried salsa although we were exceptionally bad. The hostel is less than a 10 minute walk from the square where most walking tours begin and many museums. Value for money and stunning view of Bogota.

    A hidden gem. I was sad that I only found out about this place near the end of my time in Bogotá. I wish I could’ve stayed longer. Staff are super friendly and I felt like I was at home as soon as I walked through the door. Tasty breakfast is included as are a lot of other cool activities. I was here for Gringo Tuesdays and it was extremely fun going out with all the hostel gang. Lots of lovely areas to chill in. Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful stay. Un abrazo.

    Fantastic hostel right in the heart of the Candelaria district. Charlie was incredibly helpful with every single question I had and the food was yummy. They offer several Colombian dinners throughout the week - take advantage of it (cheap & good!).

    Botanico is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. It's beautifully designed, and has a great social atmosphere. The staff clearly work so hard to make sure you have a good time - special shout out to Julian, Gladys, Elvia, Aurora and Sandra! Everything is cleaned regularly and the hostel is in a great location from which to explore La Candelaria neighbourhood. Definitely recommend!
