If your looking for a true feel of old world Colombia, the Candelaria area is the epic center of Colombia. Close to museums, and landmarks like Quintas de Bolivar, Plaza Bolivar, Cerro Monserrate etc are close by. The hostel itself is small as are the rooms. Rooms away from front desk are better, otherwise you will hear every conversation held...

Stopped into this hostel and immediately felt welcome. Our host, Carlos, was amazing! We felt like we had a friend from home. He is very knowledgable of the city and could not help more! Breakfast was delicious, rooms clean and tidy. Showers nice and warm, and the decor is beautiful! You feel like you're at home.

The rooms were very clean. Nice common areas with a kitchen. Breakfast was included. Met some nice people there. Maria who lives there went the extra mile for us when she said she would look after a bag for us for almost 3 weeks. It helped us out a lot - above and beyond!

Our room was very specious with loads of shelf space to unpack our bags and really...

Hostel was fine. Really colorful. Stayed for one night. Really friendly grandson. Grandmother who was "helping out" due to fact they were understaffed, was a bit pushy and keeping an eye on you as soon as you left your room. Location is ok, couple of minutes walking through a bit dodgy street. Shower was terrible. Wi-Fi was perfect. Free use...

I stayed here just for a single night whilst passing through Bogota early January. Maria, the owner and all of the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and hospitable. They advised me on what to do and where to go for a whistle-stop tour of Bogota. The rooms were extremely clean and the beds comfortable too. I agree with the previous...

Stayed here for one night to try something different in Bogota, was pretty average to be honest It had lots of spaces available which is helpful. The breakfast was made fresh in the morning, coffee was the best However the hostel is extremely cold, the rooms are pretty poor standard and I didn't find any toilet roll in any toilets...
