    The hostel itself is fantastic. Perfectly located in La Candelaria for easy access to all of the museums and Monseratte. It’s clean, comfortable and has everything you could need. But what really sets this hostel apart is the staff. Luzie was one of the coolest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet and Lauren was so chill. Don’t skip out on any of the activities the hostel throws, they will be sure that it’s nothing less than.. fantastic... genuinely was sad to leave.

    Started my trip here and ended my trip here. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Bogota. Located close to anything you need in Candelaria, it's a small enough hostel where it's very easy to meet other travelers, activities every day which helps with socializing, good food for nightly dinners, clean place and the beds are super comfy! Gladys you're awesome!!!!

    Loved this place! I arrived in Bogota and heard a good story about botanico so I booked it and I am so happy I did. The hostel is very social, staff knows everyone by name and security is good (you always need to ring a bell before you can get in). At one point I had a random sock and extra pillow in my bed which suggested someone may have slept in it? I just let it be... Furthermore, Gringo Tuesday’s was a good party too, overall: loved it here!

    Great vibe and really fun staff. Good at organizing activities and meals for the whole hostel. Just on the outskirts of la candelaria. Have to be careful around the hostel at night.

    Great atmosphere and even greater staff! I made a lot of new friends from all around the world! As for the hostel, it's well located and layed out nicely. The beds are very comfortable and with the addition of a comforter, I got pretty good night's sleep. I'd definitely recommend this place to any travellers! Shout outs to Julian and Andres!

    Botanico Hostel is pretty much perfectly situated near Old Town (La Candelaria). It is surrounded by Universities and there are heaps of Police patrolling and council employed security (with dogs that are used to chase any would-be pick pocketers). Unfortunately the hostel is probably considered a 'party hostel' with really loud music and Karaoke until 11:00 every night. There are 'gringo' pub crawl nights and other events which are fun if you are partying but we came to chill out in Bogota.

    Avoid this hostel - after checking out the next day they attempted to take more money off my credit card.
