Liked: Everything was incredibly clean. Good location within a five minute walk to metro stop and a big supermarket. Great kitchen facilities and nice social areas. Particularly liked the hammock area on the roof - perfect for relaxing after a long day.

Liked: The staff is amazing, especially the girl that works in the morning - she is super friendly, super helpful! The kitchen is absolutely clean and there is free coffee. Rooms and bathrooms always clean aswell. TV-room and all other common areas are very comfortable. It is so easy to meet other travellers of all ages.

Disliked: There was no BBQ on Sunday, due to the American Football Superbowl thing.

Liked: The private ensuite rooms, and especially those on the 3rd floor, are more like those found in a B&B or hotel than in hostels. Although the kitchen was a bit small for the number of guests, it functioned adequately because the guests were thoughtful in how they used it. The public spaces, including the kitchen, were always very clean. The hostel never had a noise problem from either the guests or the neighborhood, which is very safe and convenient to inexpensive eateries and a large Exito supermarket. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would gladly stay here again. Kelvin is a very friendly and helpful host that clearly knows how to run a successful hostel!

Disliked: Although not really a "dislike" since the kitchen is currently adequate and well maintained (clean and tidy), a larger one would be appreciated.

Liked: Atmosphere is great. Lots of different areas so that it can accommodate those wanting to party, or chill out, or anything in between. I cannot praise highly enough the staff who consistently go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable.

Disliked: Nothing.
