    Couldnt have been better really! Our first time in Colombia and my moms first time in a hostel-they answered our million questions, assisted us with booking, made us feel at home and comfortable. It was the perfect experience of the hostel environment that I love to show my mom! easy walk to main attractions of Bogota, la candelaria had many shops and restaurants a short distance from our doorstep. food and drinks at hostel also awesome, can’t really say enough good things about this place

    First off F****** GO HERE! Andy the owner is the best person I’ve ever met in my hostel history. Hands down made this experience so easy for my first time traveler girlfriend and I (experienced but not in covid) Tons of tours connected to the hostel and a great bar with some actually delicious food. If you looking for a perfect place to mingle and get some great travel tips in bogota this is the place to be. I WILL BE BACK!!!

    Another great trip at the Cranky Croc! I literally cannot express my love for this place. The best hotel/hostel/Airbnb equivalent you can find in Bogota. Each time I have stayed here, there has been a lockdown and each time it has been amazing. Tours were still operational with the hostel on this past trip.

    Andy and the entire Cranky Croc staff were amazing! This is our first time in Colombia and they helped make our stay in Bogota ten times better. We've been traveling for three months, in three different countries and this is by far my favorite hostel. Super clean and very secure. Highly recommend the bike tour! 🚴‍♀️
