I spent my first night in Bogota at Lima Limon because the hostel where I usually stay was full. They called Andrés and he came right down and escorted me up as it was late-night. In the morning there was a very chill scene. Although there were several groups of travelers there, everyone was respectful. Some were playing instruments and... More

Was here for one night but it's not the best hostel I've stayed in. Place is owned by a French guy and girl. The entire time we were there, they were smoking weed inside the hostel and were just laying on the couch. We didn't feel very welcome or comfortable with them. Also the hostel is pretty small so the... More

Visited this hostel with 2 friends and it was not the experience we were hoping for. The arrival, beds, and location were fine. However, the atmosphere was very unwelcoming. When arriving at the hostel after dinner we were frowned upon as we entered and the whole house smelled of weed, including the rooms. The owners were very unfriendly in their... More

Wallet got stolen and owners where of no help. Actually made me and my friends leave because we wanted the police involved. The person we are sure that took the wallet from my bed moved all of their belongings into the owners room prior to the polices arrival.... Fishy.

This place is a home away from home. We stayed here twice whilst in Colombia! I felt very comfortable in this hostel, it is absolutely beautifully decorated, very peaceful, chilled vibe. Staff are helpful and friendly. It's in a great location and I felt very safe here. Breakfast could be improved which is the only fault I can think of.... More

This place is going to make you feel like home. Located in a good zone in La Candelaria, very colorful, very cozy, very warm, it is perfect to just be relaxed and just chill. Young stuff work there so it couldn't be more perfect. Everyone should stay in this hostel if they want to go to Bogota. Loved it!

Hostel is super charming and cozy, full of colors and in a beautiful house. It was very quiet, it's a small hostel! Location is great, right in Candelaria. We unfortunately got the last room, which was super tiny without any windows, and uncomfortable beds... other rooms might better though !

This place was so perfect, I didnt want to leave. It is quite small so you cannot help but meet people, and everyone I met at this place was great. Breakfast is basic but good enough and it is served at the little dining table so it feels a bit like a family breakfast. I stayed in the private room... More

“Six bed upstairs has more room than the downstairs six bed dorm. The single private is quaint, cute and usually available. The four bed dorm has a lot of space for a dorm, even has a couch. The double private is also nice but you do have to walk through the four bed dorm to get there, which isn't really a problem.”
