    I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Completely welcoming atmosphere. I arrived about midnight and the hostel bar was buzzing. Owner and the team give great travel advice, cook a mean breakfast, and can arrange all sort of events at reasonable rates. There is also a rooftop, ping pong, and smart tvs for people that like to put on netflix from time to time. They also have plebty of space in case you want to grab a bit of food from outside and eat in.

    The Cranky Croc is the one place in all of Bogota that doesn't just welcome you like family; they have everything that makes travel special. You will have the best and warmest time. From the cold craft beer on draft, ping pong with friends, and hanging out by the fireplace or on the roof with the city's sickest views, there is no better place to stay when visiting this beautiful town. The location and experience of the staff is numero uno, and this place has it in spades. I can't wait to return.

    Brilliantly designed hostel with plenty of common areas, but also rooms that are separated and super quiet - with the biggest bunk beds I've ever slept in and great big lockers with power outlets inside them. Really good food and craft beer available from the bar/restaurant. And the staff who work there are all really helpful. The owner does an amazing job running this place, if I make it back to Bogota I will definitely stay here again.

    Most certainly the best hostel in Bogota, the facilities are very clean, it is well connected with the local tours which come and pick you up from the hostel; the hostel owner is very welcoming and friendly; breakfast, bar, and atmosphere are also top-notch. Reccomend.

    Incredible space! The sleeping area is separated well from the main hangout / restaurant / kitchen spaces so it's not loud at night. Facilities are clean and the staff were very friendly & helpful

    Nice hostel in Bogota. Travelled here after the lockdown ended so there were only 5 of us in the hostel. Atmosphere was good still, there are a lot of tours that start and stop in restaurant connected to hostel, so had good atmosphere to meet people. Facilities were clean, could tell the owner spent the time during lockdown to repair and freshen up the place.
