    Hostel Bakano was great. The staff were extra friendly and Luis was informative for things to do in the city and in the country for other parts of our trip. The location in La Candelaria was perfect, as everything is close by: museums, the hip Chorro de Quevedo plaza, restaurants and pubs, Transmelinio stops, and banks.

    Only stayed one night but glad I did! Very relaxed atmosphere, so don’t come here to party or be loud. Perfect location in the middle of Candeleria, 2 min walk from where one of the graffiti tours begins. My shower was ice cold but private bed was comfy and quaint. Biggest recommendation is do not walk around alone at night!

    Lovely hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. Went above and beyond to make our stay as nice as possible. Even prepared some extra Colombian foods for us to try at breakfast and did our laundry for us. The room was lovely and bed really big and comfortable. Only small issue was the shower which was either cold or too hot. Hard to find the balance but no big deal. Would definitely stay again.

    Great location, facilities and lovely staff. The hostel was very quiet so I did not find it particularly sociable but I was there in the low season so this is to be expected. I would definitely stay in this hostel again the next time I am in Bogota.

    I loved my stay at this small and quiet hostel, and the best thing was the staff. They were so sweet and helpful! The Venezuelan receptionist even cooked her local delicacies for me. Thank you dearly!! It's not a party hostel, only few guests, but perfect to relax. It's essential, clean and very close to all main attractions or bars/restaurants in la Candelaria.

    I stayed at the Bakano for 3 nights. The staff are very friendly and you can sit and talk with them. The hostel is not a very social hostel which was good for me as it was quiet but might not be for everyone. I’d say it would suit the over 25s best. The hostel is on the edge of the Candelaria and is about a 10-15 minute walk to mist of the main sights. It is close to Las Aguas transmilennio for those who understand that system.

    Do not go if looking for party atmosphere. Staff does not speak english. Breakfast very basic. That being said, clean hostel, nice staff and very quiet. Well located and safe. Nothing great but good value for money, we had the private room with private bathroom for like 45000 COP a night.
