Liked: Super clean, lovely staff, a dance class was put on one night which was awesome! Breakfast is cheap and great value for money if you can't be bothered to cook, but the kitchen is well equipped and always clean :) overall a great stay, very happy

Disliked: Our beds didn't have curtains (somehow on they were on the wall side of the bed?) but that's the only thing and very minor!

Liked: Great staff were very helpful, met a lot of interesting people as well. There are plenty of good areas to hang out and the bar/restraunt is well worth a look, especially live music on sundays.

Disliked: Closes down relatively early if your looking for more of a party atmosphere but then again the bars of bogota offer a very reasonable alternative

Liked: I loved everything about this place! The people are friendly, the location was great! It is not a party hostel but I wasn't really looking for that in Bogota. It was so clean, the bathrooms were spotless, loved the shower and the beds were very comfortable with little curtains so you could have some privacy. Which is really handy when you have been sharing rooms with 6 to 12 other people. I have nothing bad to say about this hostel. The staff is incredible as well...you will not be disappointed.

Liked: The setting is nice and clean. Kitchen is good and there is free coffee available.

Disliked: Wifi didn't work most of the time while I was there... One small thing I didn't like was the fact that you aren't allowed to use a door between hostel and restaurant/bar, but you need to go out on the street and enter a restaurant to buy a beer and then walk the same route back to hostel.

Liked: Fantastic location in the heart of the old colonial area. Close walk to the main sights. Lots of space to chill or meet other travellers, really good atmosphere. Super secure too, with private security at the front door.

Disliked: The ping pong table is a bit annoying when people start playing it early in the morning.

Liked: Great hostel! Really clean, awesome facilities, great location and the staff are super helpful. The common areas are great as well - would definitely recommend this hostel to other travellers.

Disliked: The 10pm curfew is a bit annoying but understandable. There was also a really weird local guy at the hostel who kept asking all the other guests for cigarettes, beer and money - not the hostels fault but he made a lot of people uncomfortable.

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.
