    This hostel is one of the best that I’ve stayed in on my 2 month trip. Elian (hostel worker) is one of the coolest guys I’ve meet on my entire trip, he made us all feel welcome and was very hospitable to me and to everyone else staying at the hostel. Ive meet some life long friends here and had some experience that will last a life time! I would recommend anyone traveling through Bogota to stay at the botánico. 56/10 would stay here again. Cheers guys! Sage

    This was the hostel of my DREAMS. So lovely. If you love a place with more old character then this is your spot. The rooftop is dreamy where you can look out over the city or at the mountains, perfect for coffee or breakfast in the morning. Lower lever is a cute little bar & from my experience still very chill, just people chatting with a couple beers. Also found the staff super nice & helpful, and the beds very comfy with curtains and big blankets for chilly weather at night! 100% recommend!

    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 🇨🇴

    Great hostel. Cheap, in the historical district, beds are comfy with privacy curtains. They have a cheap breakfast in the morning. Common areas to chill. Common room with a TV and couches, rooftop patio to catch some sun. My one complaint is the WiFi is slow especially on the roof. There’s a kid working there who is the GOAT. Basically led pub crawls, had recommendations of everything, lit a fire on the cold nights, made popcorn for movie nights. Absolutely carries the hostel.

    Great hostel with nice common areas indoor and out - close to everything in Candelaria, and also just a nice place to relax thanks to the good atmosphere and comfy areas to hang out with games, tv, etc. Not the most social vibe when I went but they said it was usually much busier - I ended up going to hang out at Selina down the road to meet people. Kitchen is hard to use when they're cooking breakfast (COP 8000). Beds were comfy! Nowhere to store big backpack in room. Staff was really nice!

    The shower could be hotter in a cold nightly environment in Bogota. The hostel has a great outdoor space and rooftop, but most people staying in the hostel didn't feel like they wanted to meet people.
