    Great hostel in the heart of La Candelabra. Easy walking distance to the Gold and Botero museums and Monserrate. The staff are super friendly and helpful. A well stocked kitchen is available for making your own meals. Definitely recommend staying at the Cranky Croc when you’re in Bogotá!

    This was my first time staying at a hostel and Cranky Croc was amazing!! I recommend staying here as the employees and the place itself was wonderful and very welcoming. It’s a great location for walking around and food spots are everywhere.

    Fantastic hostel. Clean facilities and very comfortable beds. Great place to meet lots of people and have a good time. I wouldn't dub this a "party hostel," but the atmosphere is solid.

    Bathrooms are stylish and very clean. Beds are comfortable with cozy warm blankets. Staff is friendly and helpful. Tours/activities are reasonable prices and convenient (tour guides meet you at the hostel). I arrived at 11p and was on a bike tour of the city the next morning at 10:30a. Very well run hostel. Wifi was a little weak while I was there but provided what I needed.

    Wonderful hostel, felt lucky to have stayed here. As a solo traveller the atmosphere was great and was so easy to meet people. Location is perfect right in the middle of La Candelaria, though a taxi ride away for proper nightlife. Staff were incredibly helpful with anything, breakfast was delicious, facilities were great and always clean, and everything felt totally secure. If there were to be a minor improvement it would be curtains round the dorm beds and more convenient plugs. Loved it!
