    Life is good at life is good! The hostel is so clean, the rooftop view is beautiful and the staff are incredibly friendly and I felt so welcome and comfortable as soon as I walked in. I also recommend taking the cooking class run by the chef there. It was so much fun!

    The staff are very welcoming. They gave great recommendations on where to eat and what places were good to visit. I only had a small amount of time but I feel like I was able to see everything I wanted to. Breakfast was amazing.

    What an amazing place! The staff was so kind and helpful! The happy hour/free breakfasts/cooking classes and rooftop area was next level. The dorms and common spaces were clean. The location couldn’t have been more perfect. The only downside was there was never people hanging out in the common areas, so it was much harder to meet other travelers. But don’t let that reflect on the hostel, this place was great and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again!

    THE BEST! Best location, best staff, best breakfast! The 10 bed dorms felt so private, had strong A/C and lockers big enough for your bags. Could not fault it at all.

    Really an amazing hostel with great location. Stagg is amazing, breakfast is so good and they change it so you get to try different Colombian specialties. The bed was probably the best one I’ve had in a dorm so far. Aircon worked perfectly fine. More like a hotel vibe than a hostel but people were very nice and outgoing in the dorm so would still say it’s very social. Easy to meet people in the pool at the rooftop too. Loved this place and highly recommend!

    It is a hotel with bunk beds, but still very fun! The staff is really friendly and the cook makes great dishes. You can walk to the city center and to Getsemani very easily. It is a little pricey tho aaaaand they have TWO jaccuzis on the rooftop. Really cool.

    Warning this hostel has bed bugs! My friend was bitten to shreds on our first night. We were subsequently moved rooms but are not convinced this solved the problem. We were also made to pay to wash our clothes which seemed ridiculous seeing as it was their issue. I do not recommend this hostel.
