    Amazing amazing stay. The breakfast and coffee were incredible and the whole place was beautiful and so comfortable! It was buzzing in the evening with everyone socialising at the bar. I honestly don’t think the pictures do it justice. Would absolutely stay their again.

    This was our FAVORITE hostel in Bogota! I was hesitant to book it, but once we arrived we regretted not having booked our whole stay here. It's great to meet people, high energy and fun place to hang out. The facilities were stunning, the place is big, there's a nice bar and good food. Loved the showers and dorms.

    We loved our stay! Bogota is kind of sketchy in some parts but staying here and in La Candelaria made us feel a bit more safe. Also the restaurant attached is yummy. Recommend!

    Really awesome hostel! I really enjoyed my "deluxe pod" it was so cozy and all the little touches were nice. The kitchen was quite busy for breakfast, so I ate elsewhere, but the staff were friendly and super helpful. Wish I could've stayed longer!

    Very Good

    Generally a great location, lots of tours offered from the hostel was a perk. Staff were a bit niggly and wouldn’t let me move to a bottom bunk even though there was one free in my room the whole time. Top bunks don’t have rails so was a bit uncomfortable, if you don’t move a lot at night you’re ok but not for wrigglers. I felt they could have been more accommodating and given me the bottom one given there was one free and it’s the same price. Overall value for money is good it’s v cheap.
