    I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff was great, Freddy who ran the tours was absolutely awesome, and I met a lot of cool people. Their was always some kind of activity to meet people as well. I think my only suggestion would be if maybe the hostel could organize more pub crawls so we could see more of the nightlife of Bogota. I will say, if you’re here for Gringo Tuesday’s, take advantage!

    One of the best hostels. Super friendly welcoming and helpful staff. Great food in restaurant at reasonable prices. Great atmosphere, spotlessly clean. Really enjoyed my stay here and would stay again.

    Great location, very secure. Lovely hostel, good food (pricey but great), careful with laundry said charge by kilo but then charged for an entire load which was only underwear. Met some awesome people here at the bar, set up to meet people which is great. helpful, lots going on, would stay again for sure. They let people come in at any hour, great if you arrive late, not so great if your sleeping but that's dorm life.

    Well located in candelaria, though obviously a fair way (not the cheapest) from the bus station and airport. Walkable to the cable car to montseratte viewpoint. Staff were helpful, rooms good, with big lockers and a pretty secure main gate. Breakfast was very good too. Atmosphere was not amazing but that was probably more down to me, nice lobby area with bar and ping pong. Showers good and clean, charging points in lockers but not by all beds.

    After staying here, I don’t understand what all of the positive reviews are about. It was fine, I’ve definitely stayed in worse hostels but the beds are uncomfortable, the outlets were only in the security lockers and are super loose, the reading light was too dim to read, the shower is a tiny sprinkle and 1 of my showers was not hot, plus the rooms are just very dreary. On the plus side, it is in a great location, super clean, and they organize a lot of activities.
