    Lovely pool, dorms, and shower facilities all in a beautiful old building. AC was turned on at night in the dorms which made it a very comfortable place to sleep. On the expensive side for Colombia but decent value for money given that the bunks were similar to pods - lots of privacy for a hostel dorm. The pub crawl was great fun too.

    Good hostel in great location. Staff were friendly enough, rooms and showers clean although I found the dorms very small - difficult to do things like packing. There is a WhatsApp group which lets you know about events going on which is useful for solo travellers. Alochol was a little expensive.

    Great location, and good security, but the atmosphere was just meh. They didn't have anything organized on a Saturday night and there wasn't a lot of socializing. The front desk staff were fairly helpful, but also definitely commissioned on the specific trips they offer. Overall an ok stay.

    In the heart of centro. Pub crawl/karaoke every other night. The partying goes until about 11pm each night, pro or con depending what you're looking for. Pool on the larger size for hostels around here. Rooftop didnt have a view, not really a great place to hang out. Ant problems in the room, they have signs about not bringing food but they're still everywhere. AC worked great from 6 pm-10 am. Breakfast was ok, French toast, eggs, yogurt parfait, rotates daily.

    Very mediocre- tiny rooms with no ventilation, air con doesn’t penetrate the tiny concrete pods!! Tiniest kitchen for the size of the hostel it’s crazy, and not enough bathrooms or showers for the amount of people!! Cleaning and kitchen staff however were so lovely

    Stayed in the smaller dorms which were very cramped and no where to put your bag. The beds were comfy and the rooms had air con. There are a few chill out spaces but they get very hot as there are limited fans. The showers were decent, but was never any soap in the toilets. Location is good as you are near the centre of the historic district and the hostel does put on events but we didn’t go.
