    Very good hostel. Huge, well thought out place, with all of the amenities you’d expect from a quality, international hostel. All of the facilities were up to date and clean. The staff were very polite. The vibe was relaxed and social. Plenty of tours and local information available, the free walking tour is worth a go. WiFi was very good. The location of the hostel was spot on too. The restaurant looked great, however the price seemed a little steep compared to local restaurants.

    One of the best (if not best) hostel we stayed at in South America. Really good for a night out, really comfortable and really good and cheap food. Would recommend to anyone

    This is hands down the best hostel in Bogota!! The location is secure and it's in a place where you can conveniently get around the city. All the tours/experiences that the hostel organizes are a ton of fun! Rooms are really comfortable and secure. The reception is super helpful and nice. There is a really good social atmosphere here too! I'll definitely be staying here when I make it back to Bogota!

    Had a great stay here while in Bogota for 3 nights. Beds are very comfortable and a great size. Incredibly clean. Food is really good however a bit expensive. Common area could do with some more comfortable seating that facilitates socialising.

    Do yourself a favour and stay here. Staff are super helpful especially Angie. It’s immaculately clean. Location is prime. Very secure. Not too ruckus so can sleep. The tours they organise through ‘The True Colombian Experience’ are incredibly well run. I highly recommend the walking tour. The party buses are fun too. Breakfast not included but the restaurant is open to order some until midday which is a civilised hour. Shower was always hot. Wifi worked well at all times. Beer is cold. Winner.

    Clean, comfortable 10 bed dorm. Secure lockers with charge points inside which was handy! Well stocked kitchen available if you like to cook. The location is very central and I enjoyed being close to everything, just keep in mind La Candelaria can be a bit dodgy after dark so take care. The hostel atmosphere was a bit flat with everyone glued to their phones in common areas, but the bar was closed when I stayed here so maybe that had an impact. For me, perfect. Would recommend

    Great location and security. The tours they run through The True Colombian Experience are amazing. My boyfriend and I did the free walking tour (with Juan) and food experience (with Gina) and we highly recommend them both! Breakfast isn’t included but is available for purchase. Food is great and drinks are cold. Snacks, water, and some other drinks are available for purchase at the front desk at all times.

    A really nice hostel with a good atmosphere. Breakfast is fantastic and pretty good value. It’s in La Candelaria which can be a bit sketchy at night so always go out with a group. I really recommend the free walking tour - Paula was fantastic and showing off the city. I’ll definitely be returning.
