    I cannot rave about this place enough. I have stayed in a lot of hostels in various countries, and this is the most fun, friendly, and unique hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff is super sweet and has a chill but fun party going in the bar and patio area every night, with a fantastic mix of music. They clearly have a great community with each other. All the travelers were really friendly, cool, and just down to earth. Our private rooms were also enormous and gorgeous!

    Super clean hostel, with super comfy beds. The dorm is spacious, the curtains add some privacy, and there is always fresh air coming in. The super thick blankets are appreciated because it’s quite cold in the evening ! The kitchen also super clean, super well equipped. The staff has been amazing and made me feel home. I will definitely be back!

    Un lugar especial sin duda, punto de reunión de gente de lo más interesante, lxs chicxs que trabajan ahí son de lo más chéveres, juntxs ofrecen muchísima ayuda y buena vibra. La casa es asombrosa pero se podría mejorar enormemente, la cocina es complicada si pretendes cocinar y las duchas son verdaderamente terribles. Regresaría definitivamente, pero no lo recomiendo para quien quiere conocer la Bogotá verdadera, el lugar, lxs extranjerxs y la zona, te absorben muy cabrón jaja.

    I had a wonderful stay at Botánico. The staff were very kind and helpful. I booked a dorm bed in the female only room and the beds were very comfortable. And each bed had a curtain and plugs which was great. Plus a small locker to keep things safe. The bathrooms weren’t the cleanest but they weren’t bad.

    Lovely staff. Comfy communal areas, fantastic view over the city. I wouldn’t suggest going out after dark alone in the area. Beds are super comfy and spacious! :) maybe suggest more hostel activities?

    Very Good

    16 Jun 2022
    We had a private room, which was good, the only downside was the room was cold, due to the draft from beneath our door from the outside. The hostel is very open. The staff were friendly and helpful. The terrace has a good view of the city. The breakfast is good. There is a friendly atmosphere and good to speak to other travellers. The music started playing at around 7:00am in a morning- which is too early in my opinion. Free water at the hostel and good airport transfers.
