Liked: The staff is really nice and helpful. The neighborhood is ok. A bit dodgy at night. Inside the hostel though it really feels safe. Clean, nice place to chill. Atmosphere really relax but the hostel was mostly empty during my stay. Only real drawback for me : the cold and the lack of additional blankets. The ones provided where really not enough.

Disliked: The location which was not central enough. The cold and the lack of additional warm bed blankets.

Liked: Ivan, the owner bent over backwards to do all he could to assist and make us feel welcome and comfortable !! Seldom do you meet someone of his nature. Jason, the young guy who works there, was also excellent. I highly recommend the place. The hostel wasn't busy at the time, which I've got to say suited us perfectly.

Liked: Great hostel - I´ve stayed in 4 or 5 in Candelaria and this is probably my favourite. Nice chilled out vibe, but still normally something happening if you want to head out, the staff normally have somewhere in mind for people to go at nightime. Staff very helpful and always available if you need to ask something. Decent kitchen, breakfast til 10am, nice showers, good location.

Disliked: Can be a noisy at times due to very little sound insulation, but the positives more than make up for this

Liked: Good location, very friendly and helpful staff, strong wifi, delicious croissants at breakfast!

Disliked: My main issue with Casa Bellavista was that it was freezing cold throughout the hostel. Bogota is not a warm city at night and the beds only had 2 small blankets. All other hostels i have stayed in, in similar climates, have had duvets and these are urgently needed at Casa Bellavista - at night i had to sleep in a down jacket just to stay warm! The other problem was the bathrooms which were all (bar one) covered in mould.

Liked: Very central to La Candelaria, very helpful friendly staff, clean room (beds made up every day).

Disliked: The private room has more of a partition onto reception than a true wall so you can hear every little thing including loud music until midnight or so and everyone arriving home late. The private bathroom is not en suite, which kind of defeats the purpose - i.e. you can't just wander in for a pee in the night and you have to get dressed to go take a shower. Breakfast was pretty mingey. If you can afford it, skip the bread rolls and head around the corner to Cafe del Sol.

Liked: Everything! You should stay here. The owner is really helpful. The upstairs has nice wood floors and modern design. Nice hang out space. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and modern. It's a great location close to bars and cafes right out the door. And yet it's still a mellow place to sleep. The best of both worlds. Friendly atmosphere and good to meet people:)

Liked: First and foremost the house keeping lady was the hardest worker I have seen in any hostel - she did an outstanding job keeping the place clean. The hostels location is great and I really liked its design - it had all the facilities one would need in a hostel.

Disliked: Bogota can be a cold place at night, so it would be nice if they offered more blankets. The staff, while friendly do not really inform you as to what things are going on in Bogota as far as live music, football games, etc. They also don't really tell you what you should go see in the city or where you should eat. Basically, its like staying in a hotel with little interaction between the staff and its guests. Now I'm sure the experience could be different if yourcompletely fluent in Spanish, which I'm not.
