Liked: nice and simple. friendly staff and guests. great location. the best hot shower we have had in Colombia.

Disliked: at night there are no staff that speak English so if you get in late and need help or advice you have to wait until morning.

Liked: Pretty much everything was good about the stay. The staff are great, there are a few common areas to help mingle with others and the Sunday barbecue was terrific value. A short walk from Parque Lleras and Poblado Metro station make this a good location to explore from but the quiet neighbourhood means you won't be kept up all night (unless you want to).

Disliked: Nothing. For party animals you might prefer something right at the Zona Rosa.

Liked: Nice clean rooms, spacious kitchen, nice outdoor areas in good location. Seemed popular with single or double travellers. Host is knowledgable and keen to assist all day. Unsure about the mud-map on the info page hostel and not a proper google maps link, which seemed odd.

Disliked: Nowt.

Liked: Very clean and modern hostel. Good kitchen. The owner Kelvin is very helpful (although some might not understand his dry Kiwi sense of humour!). Lots of information on what to do. Located only a few minutes walk from a host of decent fast food places. The local salsa school is also very good if you want to take dance lessons.

Disliked: I have no complaints about this hostel. and no, i don't work for them
