    I'd highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to Bogota. The owner is friendly and accommodating and the building itself is beautiful and really well maintained.

    Cranky Croc was the highlight of my trip to Colombia. I came to Bogota for a week before my cousins wedding, and it ended up being my favorite city all because of Cranky Croc. The staff was incredible, food was delicious and the people staying were all fantastic. The place was always full of life and things to do. Candelaria is an incredible part of town and Cranky Croc is perfectly situated within the area. The place was extremely safe and the amenities were fantastic. Cant wait to come back!

    Hi, This place is lovely, in all dimensions. Come with an open heart and desire for adventure and to meet new people and you will journey on with very fine warm memories. It’s more family that party but there is a beer and barbecue from time to time. Your hosts will make sure you have a healthy tasty breakfast and an adventure. It’s been my go to place in Bogota for last year when I pass through. I only worry that with this review they will be booked and less chance to return. Douglas

    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

    Great hostel, very well maintained and clean. I would just say it gets super cold inside when it rains and going to the bathroom/showering is a struggle. Besides that, great hostel!

    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! 🚴‍♀️
