    I love Botánico! The staff are super nice and helpful, the breakfast in the morning is tasty and easily affordable. The living room is extremely comfortable with cozy blankets to cover yourself in while watching Netflix on TV, or playing card games and chess with other people. The beds are also clean and really warm. I never had an issue sleeping at night. Botanic is certainly my favorite hostal in Bogota. I will be coming back in the future when I return to Colombia 🇨🇴

    This place is very clean and in a great location close to a ton of things to do! The beds are really comfortable too. The morning breakfast is a great deal and the staff are very friendly. Great value for a hostel. The place can be a bit noisy since voices carry easily.

    The good: This is a great hostel for travelers looking to meet other travelers and enjoy nightlife. There are common areas to chat and have drinks with other guests. The location is great and is really close to the bus system, dining, and the downtown areas. The dorms have bunk beds with curtains for privacy. Needs improvement: The bathrooms for the dorms are in the common area and there are only a couple, meaning long lines every morning. Lockers in dorms were also all occupied on arrival.

    Very Good

    30 Sep 2021
    Good hostel but you can find better in the city. It is a very small hostel with really nice staff. I didn’t really like the fact that it was only curtain instead of door in the room and that men were coming in the room (I booked a female dorm). Also, there is no locker so your luggage are in the middle of the room with no security at all. They do a fire every night in the common area which is nice because it’s cold but try not to be there when they start it because the smoke goes everywhere.

    Warning bed bugs!!! I had to leave the hostel in the middle of the night as I had bed bugs in my bed. I got refunded for that night but that doesn’t solve the problem. I spoke with other guests and this problem was already known. Besides that there are no curtains in the room and no hairdryers.

    The good - Most staff were great. Especially the volunteers. Coffee in the morning, nice views and outdoor seating. Good location and some nice cafes nearby. The bad- Party atmosphere- loud at night and no quiet places to find if you are in a dorm. Quiet hours are non-existent. No orientation with check-in. Kitchen is tiny and too small to plan to cook often with so many people.
