    Stylish hostel, great location, friendly staff, and clean overall! Beautiful rooftop view and WiFi all over. If you like to party, this hostel has the atmosphere and means to get you to a good time. If you don’t like to party, bring some ear plugs. Staff is helpful and informative! The hostel offers fun activities and great food! Breakfast is included and they offer dinner nightly for an additional price if you choose to eat there. Local beers and delicious cocktails at the bar. Would recommend!

    I had a great stay here! The beds were so comfortable, I loved it! The rooftop is very nice and the yoga on it is the best. They offer that everyday for a small price. Totally worth it! It was a very ling lesson (about two hours) Would recommend this hostel for sure!!!

    I had a private room for a few days. Overall, great staff and location. Nice rooftop and backyard. Didn't eat much of the food there since I was going out to eat a lot, but for free, the breakfast was good.

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. So good I’ve extended my stay 4 different times. My first night they threw a party and it was a lot of fun and got to meet some great people, the owner is very nice and takes a lot of pride in her hostel. Extremely easy to meet people and everyone is very welcoming. Julien, Gladys and Andres at the front desk are amazing and help with anything you need. Will definitely come back here any time I come back to Bogotá!

    This place isn't as much of a party hostel as I saw in other reviews, but I prefer that. I met a ton of awesome friendly people, but it wasn't absolutely nuts when I was trying to sleep. Their breakfast and dinner are great, the beds are comfortable, and the staff were all super helpful. Only problem is that there aren't enough bathrooms in the morning when everyone is getting ready so sometimes you'll have to wait a while.

    Staff seemed cliquey with a few of the longer term guest and the crowd was super young when I was there. However, the salsa lessons are great and the beds were comfortable.

    Weird one! Nice enough hostel but staff were far from ideal. We had a hostel party one night and the owner started getting aggressive at anyone who wasnt drinking, coming into the chill/ tv area and demanding we get up, pulled out the plug and ranted a bit more! Then the next day I had a labelled burger l in the fridge which I was going to have for lunch, only to be told a member of staff had eaten it. I asked them if i could just have some bread to make toast as a replacementand they said no.

    Really unfriendly, disorganized & chaotic staff. Took me 45 mins to check in and get a bed, just because everyone said "1 minute" & ran off and then someone else showed up and did the same... Gave up my laundry, was promised it would be back in 24 hours. It wasn't and I asked for it back unwashed - they promised me it'd be ready, washed & dried in 2 hours - well 4 hours later (almost missed my flight) got a bag of soaking wet clothes... Thanks! Breakfast tiny, common areas/bathrooms dirty, loud.
