Liked: Was just meant to stay for two days but ended up staying for two weeks+! The hostel is set in a 200 year old building giving the place character. It is in a great location in the historical core to the city meaning you are greeted by a rich array of colonial buildings as soon as walk out the front door. A short stroll from the main square with its impressive neo classical architecture and about 15mins to the foot of the mountain that towers above the city. The hostel is clean, WiFi great (much better than Bolivia!), good breakfast, they dont make you wear annoying bands but have good security measures but the strength in this hostel lies in its helpful and friendly staff who gave me a great experience there and memorable birthday! Thank you

Liked: Good location. Close to the main square. Staff are friendly. Love the huge underbed lockers in the dorms. 5000 COP meals are OK. Some are better value than others...

Disliked: Pillows are rubbish. Too skinny and small, and also mine smelt like a thousand sweaty heads had slept on it before...The bar was noisy, even with the doors shut, I could still hear people laughing in my room oposite the kitchens.

Liked: I really loved the bar, and all the common areas, so easy to meet people there. Great beds, finally a bed in south america that wasn't too soft and they were big. Great atmosphere, I plan to send people their way when I meet people going to Bogota

Disliked: Cold showers, but This was my first hostel in Colombia, so I don't if thats the norm. Anyway, the trick is to keep the water pressure low, and you can have a warm shower. =)

Liked: Fantastic staff, good vibes and great location. They also have a range of beers at their bar. Not a crazy party hostel but good to hang out, have some beers and see where the night takes you.

Liked: The hostel has a lot of big open spaces, as well as a big bar and chill out area. The rooms are big, clean and the bunk beds are larger than normal. The staff go out of their way to help you, and are very informative of the local area. The breakfast has fresh fruit everyday and as an added bonus, complimentary dinner every night.
