Great location in la Candelaria
Breakfast was simple, rooms were small. It looked like the building behind us was a brothel or some sort which didn’t make us feel quite so comfortable but all in all, we were fine and safe. Great location in la Candelaria and close to the monserrate, but everyone kept telling us to be careful at night and to not go out so that made us feel uneasy as well.

Nice hostel and location is great but my experience with especially a girl working on the reception was not great. She literally didn’t want to do any work when I asked I wanted to book a airport transfer for a certain time in the early hours of the morning when previous guy reception told me I could book this via them. She just said come 5 mins before and we will book you a cab.

Better than a hotel!
Best Hostal I have stayed, it looks more like a boutique hotel, even people walking down the street wanted to go in to see the place. I had a private room with share bathroom which was very clean.... There are a lot of good looking and inviting common areas. Little theater is very cool, they have yoga classes. Convenient restaurant and bar with live music at night, noise did not get to my room at all so it’s good to have a good night sleep if you Don’t want to go out. There is a small XOXO convenience store right next door with an ATM, and it’s walking distance to main sights and the free walking tours. The staff are awesome! Super friendly, helpful and very sweet! Highly recommend it. I did not want to leave Bogota but it was because the hostal :-)

Overprice for double room
Double room seems overprice (little space, no windows, and cooking odors). Nevertheless the hotel and restaurant are very well design and staff very friendly

Ambiance jeune sympath décontractée, décor sympath, le seul bémol, mal insonorisé et un peu bruyant. Personnel à l'accueil adorable.

Ótimos passeios oferecidos!
O espaço e a ideia do hostel/cowork/agencia de turismo é simplesmente fantástica! Ótimas opções de passeio, tudo organizado. Porém a comida do local não era tão bem feita, pelo custo.Vale a pena comer na rua, no museo botero.
