Liked: Really quiet place. I stayed here as my spanish school was only a 10 minute walk away. It was perfect for me as it was very chilled out and allowed me to study. Not a party place!

Liked: Comfy common areas, plenty of space to relax and make new friends. Lots of on site extras for good prices like snacks, drinks, basic necessities. Friendly helpful staff.

Disliked: If you have a room with windows facing the back keep them closed to avoid the smell of cigarette smoke from the occasional smoker out back getting into your room.

Liked: I´ve been travelling all over South America for the last three months and this is one of the best (probably the best) hostel i´ve stayed at. Really good breakfast, clean, bathroom/showers are closer to hotel standard than hostel. . the place has character too. .staff are very friendly/helpfull and even invited us out to a non gringo club with them. .it was bliss!

Disliked: Nothing everything was great.

Liked: Super clean with a comfortable bed and newly remodeled bathrooms. It was also our first hot water in a week! Lots of space to relax and nicely situated between the downtown, historic part of Bogota and the other areas north (Usaqen, Zona Rosa, etc.). Easy to navigate the city on bus from this spot.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: We stayed at La Pinta for over a week and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff are excellent and the facilities brilliant. It's location is closer to the zona rosa than other hostels which makes it easier for eating and drinking. However the homely nature of the hostel (it even has a Nintendo 64!) allows for the ideal recovery during the day. The staff will also gladly help out in the planning of more touristy ventures as well during the day. This is unanimously our favourite hostel in South America. Oh yeah - it has the two best labradors ever as well.

Disliked: Maybe some pugs would compliment the labs

16 January 2012 Nikolas would recommend this property

Liked: - helpful and friendly staff - near supermarket and not too far from airport - good kitchen - nice and new bathrooms - some good rooms - make sure yours doesn't face the street!

Disliked: - rooms are not as modern as they appear (except bathrooms) - there is no heating so it can get quite cold at night (they provide warm duvets though, but your head may still end up cold) - first room had mold on the wall (they moved us to a different room and said they'd fix the crack in the wall that had caused the water to enter and cause the mold) - the room they moved us to faced the street. the windows didn't close properly and were super thin, so you could hear all the cars and trucks speeding by on the streets (and there were many) at high volume

Liked: The staff were incredibly helpful, and very understanding. The place was very clean and secure, with lots of common areas.

Disliked: Obviously, it is not in the historic centre. Taxis are cheap, and the buses are nearby, but you need to be prepared to travel to get into town.

Liked: Staff were friendly enough, private rooms were big and airy, good bedding, cute resident dogs

Disliked: Pitiful showers, poor location, was asked three times whilst checking out if I wanted to tip - 3 times in the space of 10 minutes - bit too like a shakedown for my liking, particularly after a one night stay

Liked: Good hostel - Large open spaces, very clean, good breakfast and nice staff. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm, and plenty of room. Probably most secure lockers we have had all trip, and charging points built in.

Disliked: A map created by the hostel with local amenities would be useful, can be difficult to find what you need at the start. But once you get to know area, good place to be based.
