    Great stay in El Yarumo. A slight mishap in our booking with the hostel overbooked for one night, but that staff were great and accommodated us in a nearby hostel, covering the difference in cost. The staff were upbeat and very helpful to us. Thank you El Yarumo

    I had a great experience at this hostel. I originally planned to stay for a few nights but ended up staying for almost 2 weeks. The staff is extremely friendly and are always willing to help. The beds are clean and so are the bathrooms and showers. It is more of a chill environment...not really a party hostel. I would highly recommend staying here!

    I actually love this place they are so nice here!! We stayed for one night and the place has such a calm friendly vibe and there’s a really cute indoor sitting room for chilling. Breakfast menu is super reasonable and really good! We had to come back to bogota just for the day before a flight and the staff were so nice about letting us hang around for the day and storing bags for us. Went above and beyond to dry our towels properly before putting them in our bags, love it here!!

    A quiet, clean, peaceful place to stay in a good location. 5-bed dorm was spacious and the kitchen is modern. Lounge/common room is cozy. Downsides: Bathrooms require walking outside—it’s not far, but no one wants to do that when it’s raining (which it does often). Breakfast is available at extra charge. Also, I realize it’s for security, but understand that no one who is not a guest is allowed to enter the premises. Maybe not the most memorable hostel, but still a solid place to stay.

    Great staff, very nice and helpful! Older building, but kept clean. Nobody was there during my stay, so unfortunately there was no atmosphere. My bunk had very low clearance at the edge of the bed - no room to sit up at the edge. I hit my head numerous times (I’m very short). You will need to walk through open courtyard to access bathroom - not a problem when the weather is fine. Candelaria area in general is safe during the day, but not recommended to go out solo at night.

    A nice, chill hostel and a really great staff. It was bit cold in the dorm on the days I was there, but I asked for an extra blanket and had no problems after that. Also, breakfast isn't free, but they have a kitchen and fridge so I could make my own stuff. Recommended.

    We stayed in a double private, everything was nice and clean. Location is also perfect. The staff wasn't very helpful or knowledgeable and weren't able to give us good recommendations (if any). Price was very cheap by eruopean standards, I guess average for Latin America.
