    Friendly staff, very accommodating. Clean, excellent location, quiet dorm area and good social area too. I signed up for the free walking tour at reception which was a great intro to Bogotá too

    Excellent hostel. Very centrally located in historic district of Bogota. Breakfast costs extra but is very good and reasonably priced. Nice bar and common area and hostel organises lots of activities etc. They also organise transfers to airport. Good buzz but not overly loud. Fantastic hot showers! Private rooms are very nice and spacious - only down side is they can get a bit hot - no air con. Would highly recommend overall.

    Great location and helpful staff. Food is good but takes a while to arrive perhaps due to the strange ordering system that they use that leads to a lot of confusion. Rooms and showers were clean and of a high standard. Great atmosphere and was very easy to meet other travellers. Fair amount to do in the local area and within walking distance.

    The hostel is in a great location in the heart of La Candelaria and very clean. I was in a 10 bed dorm which was incredibly clean and travellers respectful of eachother so noise was minimal. The food was yum and the lounge area comfortable and chilled. Would stay again and recommend.

    Good clean place in the La Candelaria neighborhood. Mostly filled with backpackers from W. Europe, Australia and NZ. Clean and safe. Offers daily activities. Receptionist is not overly friendly but is knowledgeable. Has all the things a backpacker might need. Great restaurant. Overpriced though.

    This is a nice hostel! Everyone traveller who comes to Bogota seems to stay here. The hostel organised nights out (gringo tuesdays) which is a nice way of encouraging people to socialise. The “party bus” is hilarious (a coach where a bottle of pre mixed rum and coke is passed round) - make use of this drink because drinks at the night club are crazy expensive! Beds are comfortable but I was on the top bunk and literally thought the whole bed was going to collapse every time I climbed up

    I don’t know how this hostel has such a good rating. The dorm was smelly and dark, the beds weirdly had no ladders and seemed unstable. Staff was overworked and stressed out. Absolutely no atmosphere, in the common area everyone’s just at their phones as this is the only place the WiFi works. The location is nice but for this price you’ll find many better hostels in the area.
