30 December 2012 David would recommend this property

Liked: Breakfast was very good, the three areas for relaxation were well appointed but due to the constant banging in the bathrooms there was no time to read or relax. Very safe area and walking distance to everything. Would recommend taking taxis for return to hostel. Security was very good.

Disliked: Unfortunately when we arrived, the male ablutions was out of order, and men had to shower and toilet in the female ablutions. Today the female ablutions were thrown into disarray and plumbers have been working all day, banging and chipping away at tiles, concrete etc to replace old plumbing with copper pipes. It's been very noisy, but of no fault of the management? Fortunately the male ablutions were back in order when female facilities were impaired. No concession was offered for this disruption.

Liked: The place has a nice vibe to it, with a nice outdoor patio space. There is a great hang out area equipped with a nice leather couch, christmas tree, hammocks, flatscreen TV, computers, billiards, and chess board. Everything is clean, and the staff speaks English. I stayed at another hostel in Bogota where the staff did not speak English, so this was definitely a plus!

Disliked: The dorms dont have lockers for you to lock your stuff in, but the private rooms do and they offered to lock my stuff in the reception area.

Liked: - Cute and inexpensive hostel with fantastic staff. Waterfall showers are pretty sweet and the bathroom is clean (could use some shelving though). - Kitchen is well stocked, bunks are comfortable with privacy curtains. - Great for meeting people, but not necessarily a "party" hostel. - Location was close to the transmileno, but the area itself can be sketchy at night. - Breakfast in the morning for 5,000 COP was convenient. - Lots of Colombians stay at the hostel as well, but they tend to keep to themselves (maybe it was just a language barrier thing though...?)

Disliked: - Only one bathroom (approx 5 stalls, 5 showers) - Not a lot of lighting in the courtyard after dark, couple of the lights in my room were out. - The room I was in didn't have any hooks to hang stuff on, and the lockers are under the beds so they won't fit a large pack. - There was a theft while I was there where a guy came in and stole someone's backpack from the common area. Keep your bags in your room or watch them carefully.

Liked: It was really nice and clean, friendly and helpfull staff , nice hot showers. good food in the restaurant although expensive.

Disliked: I was expecting that a bit more was going on, and was therefore quite dissapointed that you had to be quiet at 10pm and the bar wasn't really a bar, and stopped serving at 10pm. No breakfast included

Liked: the restaurant attached to the hostel was amazing. the rooms were clean and the bathrooms were great

Disliked: when we booked we booked a double private room which turned out to be twin beds. we were made change rooms 3 times and the noise is ridiculous. The dorms are above the private rooms and you can hear everything its extremely frustrating. the kitchen for the guests is small and not functional

Liked: The place is kept very clean, and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is in a great location, very close to some of the best sights in Bogota, like the Bolivar Square and Botero Museum. It gets very cold in Bogota so you have to wrap up warm in the communal areas, but in the rooms they have thick blankets, so it's not cold whilst you're sleeping. The girls toilets were always really clean and I never had to wait for the shower. They have three computers which have headphones and a webcam so that you can use Skype. I definitely recommend this hostel!

Disliked: The one criticism I can think of is that they have metal stairs, so it's sometimes a bit noisy when you're trying to sleep and other people are walking around.
