So why book at musicology hostel?
Because we are first of all travellers and then business owners
Because we know that it's the little things that make the difference like a good morning and a smile
Because we are aware that we cannot only take but also give (social projects)
Because we are very ecological aware (all wood used in the hostel is from demolition, including the bunk beds. We recycle everything. We are a paper free hostel - no check in forms. Read more

About Musicology hostel

And mainly because we, the owners of Musicology hostel, are long time backpackers from various countries that in between us we have visited more than 100 countries and slept in hostels in all of them.
In Musicology we tried to create our dream hostel. A hostel just the way we would like to find when we travel, implementing “wisdoms” we picked along the way but mainly avoiding the things we learnt not to do from other hostels we stayed in.
Our beautifully restored colonial house has 2 patios, a garden and hammocks to chill out on. We have a fully equipped bar, all staff speak fluent English, hot water with strong pressure 24h, blankets like your mama will leave on your bed at home, extra wide bed, best mattresses in the market and private bathrooms in most our dorms.
The room price includes free breakfast,free bed sheets and towel, free internet, free Wi-Fi, free local calls, free safe deposit boxes in all dorms with electricity plugs in them to safely charge your electric toys, free use of the guest kitchen, free smiles, free Salsa classes every Thursday, free exchange library, free luggage storage, free and complete travel info about Bogota and the area, free use of the hostel after checkout until 23:00, including showers and internet, free games and playing cards and much more.
Here are some more services you can enjoy in our hostel, and forgive us if some of them are not as free.
Bar with all night happy hour (why limit happiness to 2 hours a night?), Same day laundry service, iPod and MP3 docking stations in the toilets, Charging corner for all king of cell phones, heart pacers, Currency exchange,24h reception, Night guard, No curfew or lockout, In hostel Spanish teacher, Restaurant with a wide vegetarian selection and most important our Thursday (high season only) and Saturday night crazy turtle bar hopping party bus.
Let the music rock your soul.
