I stayed in this hostel at the beginning and the end of my trip in Colombia and it wasn´t a problem to leave very much of my luggage there. The staff, especially Oscar is super helpful and friendly. I think the place has almost everything you need: Clean and good facilities (although the showers weren´t very good), fast internet, a...

A quiet hostel. The staff were kind of awkward and acted more like guests. Quite quiet. Good cleanliness. Showers aren't the best but do the job. Good kitchen. Decent value. Excellent location. Good value. Very safe area. Rooms are decent enough, although some are quite dark. Make sure you bring a lock for the locker!

Located in a very safe area of Bogota, North House is a nice place to stay if you actually want to wander around on your own after dark. There are plenty of shops and bars in the immediate vicinity, and the pleasant Parque Virrey is only a short walk away. Tends to have an older than usual clientele. Downside: very,...

What a wonderful experience. Better than I had imagined. Inside you´ll find very friendly and knowledgeable staff (good English language skills) and a very clean establishment. The kitchen and social areas are large and fully equipped. Great backyard with lovely, lush flowers for relaxing, chatting, having a smoke. The rooms are pretty standard hostel bunk-bed rooms, but there seemed to...

If you want to stay somewhere safer than La Candelaria in Bogotà then the Zona Rosa area is probably your best bet. It's a really smart modern area and the streets seem really safe. There are loads of malls, shops, bars and restaurants. The downside and reason most backpackers choose La Candelaria is that things round here are comparatively quite...

In large Latin American cities, there is a "price to pay" for being located in "the high rent district" (which in this case refers to "Zona Rosa"--the preferred location for enjoying nightlife in Bogota). North House Hostel "bucks the trend" through offering the same low prices for dorm beds as found in Candelaria (historic city center), while offering a safe...

This hostel has the best location in Bogota! It's a walking distance from Zona Rosa, where are all the bars, good restaurantes and nightclubs in the town. It's also very close from a Transmilenio Station. So in 20 minutes you can get to La Candelaria to visit the older part. I wouldn't recommend any other Hostel in Bogotá!

The kitchen is not equiped at all. If you ask for a way to enlight the oven the staff looks strange at if you do not have your own lighter. The dorm I was in was headed out to the main street. Not too bad if it hadn´t been for the pizza restaurante just outside. One of the three showers...
