    This was the nicest hostel I've stayed at in my life. Everything is nice, clean, remodeled. The sleeping areas are nice and quiet, separated from the social areas. Great location to explore the La Candaleria neighborhood of Bogota. Highly recommended, in fact I went back a second time towards the end of my trip.

    We stayed in the cranky croc for 4 nights over New Years and had a great time. The rooms are basic with comfy beds and big lockers. The hostel has lots of facilities including a ping pong table. The restaurant attached makes excellent food. The hostel organised bbq and night out was also great fun 🙂

    Great hostel, super clean, real informative staff. Nice chilled common area. The walking tour is great. Good breakfast (not included but v cheap). Only tiny disappointment was the very lukewarm shower (not ideal for a chilly eve after long travels) but apart from that would still highly recommend.

    Lovely place. The dorms are really cozy with comfortable beds. The common area is nice with a glass roof for lots of light and usually busy with other travellers, which is great as a solo traveller. Breakfast and drinks at the bar are really good! The showers could use a little more water pressure but thats the only thing one could complain about and not really an argument against the hostel. Loved my stay here and would definitely come back!

    Really enjoyed staying here. Great restaurant, perfectly fine shared showers and toilets and reception recommended two brilliant tours for us. Had a private room which was nice and big. Only downer was the couple next door deciding to have loud sex for three hours at 2am and wake up the whole building – but that's not the hostel's fault and was pretty funny when loads of us met in the garden to laugh about it.

    It is a very beautiful hostel with all the facilities. The dorm was spacious (one of the best in Colombia) with good washroom. They have huge common area with bar.

    Hostel was pretty deserted when I was there before Christmas. Also it was quite cold in Bogota and some of the small windows in the hallway where missing so it wasn’t really pleasant. Bathrooms and showers are new which is nice (although ours lacked soap) and the location is very central (be careful at night though!).

    Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the chef Eddie is amazing. Will make you the best gourmet meal. It was down season in Bogota, so no one was there. The rooms were freezing and none of the outlets worked. Bathrooms and showers were pretty dirty, but the cleaning staff was so sweet. Breakfast was amazing and I met the owner who was fantastic. The hostel pets were so cute and friendly and it was in a great location. They can also arrange airport transfer and lots of tours offered!
