It's very well located, just 2 blocks from the main square in Candelaria. People are very nice and helpful. Although there's is no breakfast included they provide coffe. I felt really safe in there because they have cameras outside and in the common areas.
The bed could be more comfortable. The water in the shower could be hotter and with more pressure.
The only small drawback was that we had the downstairs room with the only window opening to the lobby.
Excellent staff, very helpful in letting us know where to find what we're looking for Close to great coffe shop Safe place and location We can recomend and we would stay again
Somewhat noisy depending where your room is
Location and the extremely helpful host who went out if his way to help
Clean, and very good location. Short walking distance to major spots.
stayed four nights at this hostel, wish we could have switched to something else. the facilities of this hostel is okay...clean room but very small, and the room we stayed on the first floor has no window, very dim, and gloomy like. The door is so thin that you hear clearly whats going on outside, its especially annoying when there is guest talking to the reception during late night. No Hot shower, Cold water all the time with lukewarm water for less than 10 seconds, ICY Cold water from hand washing sink. Its quite tough during the cold weather of our stay. Also, the attitude of the staff isn't very friendly (almost ranks the worst during all my hostel/hotel experience). they seemed very indifferent about their guest that Josh/Joshua is also quite a bipolar type that he's extremely cold with his poker face in the morning and at night, the only time he talks to you more than a stranger is afternoon time. Since we don't speak spanish, there is this time that we would need his help communicating with the taxi driver, he wouldn't even want to go outside of his house, instead he told us that he doesn't want to get involved. Staying at this hostel makes you feel like you stay at someone else's house for free but the host doesn't even care about you. We got yelled at for not keeping the bathroom floor super clean, yes, I meant SUPER. and you cannot unlock the front door yourself, you need to ring the bell every time you go back or leave the hostel. No one greets you in person because they see you in the camera to tell what you need. Somehow it seems very safe that the whole house is under camera control but it is also very uncomfortable to be under camera supervision the whole time while you are in the house outside of your room. If you pay with debit/credit card, the hostel also charged extra 6% fees and tells you in a nice tone, that you're just paying the same amount like you get cash out from your ATM card.
the landlady or owner was constantly barking orders at her servants and criticizing their work. yelling across the hall ways and from 2nd floor! then she accuses me of tearing up her seat cushion off the chair. so I told her the seat pad was already completely loose! she never stops yaking all day long!!! so needless to say she ruined my stay (:

Joshua the owner was very helpful - speaks excellent English, calls taxis and provides advice. Beautiful colonial house, our double room was massive. Very clean. Location is great, felt safe with soldiers posted on the corner. Loved the option of having a kettle in the kitchen to make hot drinks. Coffee available at 8.30am.
Great location, safe, clean
- Joshua was extremely helpful during our stay. - The room we stayed in (private double at the back of the hotel) was absolutely beautiful. - The whole hostel was full of character and a great building in a good location.
- You need to ring a bell to be let in and out. This is great for safety and security, but can become a little embarrassing when you're disturbing the staff whenever you need to come or go.
What I loved about Zohar: This quaint hostel was recommended by a friend after her recent stay. I was not disappointed. Staff were 100% friendly and helpful, showing me around the hostel, cheerfully answering questions about things to do and see and explaining how to get there (Joshua speaks excellent English and is a wealth of knowledge), which areas were safe and which required more care or should be avoided (I never had any problems or concerns with my safety in Bogota, just be aware and smart about everything), he called taxis for me and helped negotiate their prices (from airport the 20 min ride should cost about 25,000 COP if you use the yellow public taxis outside the airport doors; those who try to get your business inside the airport charge 3x more!!!), introduced me to other guests, etc. The hostel was SUPER CLEAN, on a very safe street (guards for the President's house are right out front and also friendly and helpful for directions), and so beautiful inside. Hot showers and wifi were reliable (I saw others' reviews that water was not hot and water pressure terrible but I had the opposite experience and was very satisfied with my showers). The hostel is walking distance to Monserrate, many great museums, restaurants offering traditional Colombian food, the President's house, local artisan venues, and more. Taxis and food are VERY inexpensive (a 1/2 hour ride across town late at night was US$5. Breakfast can be had for $3-6 and a huge dinner $10). The staff offered to store my bag for a couple of hours on my last day so I could check out in the morning but still see some sights before catching my plane later in the day. I would recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to stay downtown.
This hostel would be perfect if it offered kitchen facilities and a breakfast. I usually choose a hostel because I like to cook my meals and save money but there are no facilities here other than a coffee maker and electric pot to boil water. Breakfast is just coffee but there are several places nearby to eat and after my stay I would argue that, in this wonderful city, you should forego cooking your own food anyway and try the local menus instead! And good food is so inexpensive it'll knock your socks off. One other thing...if you are a light sleeper you should select a room in the back and bring earplugs as the street traffic can penetrate inside. That said, I was on the 2nd floor on the busy street side, used my earplugs and had no problem sleeping. Otherwise don't let this deter you from staying here. The charm, staff and convenience are worth it.
The host owners are very warm, honest, friendly and nice human person!
The location of Zohar hostel is perfect, right in the centre of Candelaria.
We had a room at the front of the hostel facing the street which made it a bit noisy overnight.
The owner speaks English which is helpful. The location is great, but I wouldn't feel the need to stay in La Candelaria for too long. Go out and explore other areas like El Chapinero! The house cleaners were very kind and even brought us coffee on arrival.
No map, but the owner did provide okay directions to find a tourist store. At one point the door kept ringing and ringing and cops were trying to enter. The constant ringing of the door was a little annoying, but it was a very safe place. There are also no windows and not a very comfortable lounge area. Wifi frequently did not work in the room.
Communication with the property owner was very good from time of booking and continued on. He was very courteous with a good attitude, even when I informed him that I was checking out a early. Wi Fi is good. T.V. is good.
I arrived late at night and as I was getting out of my car, was promptly harassed by a local "bum"....Defiitely not safe to walk out at night time on your own. My ensuite room, did not have any windows to outside and no solid doors ( patio like doors with glass windows) between the public areas and my room. Although sheets seemed clean, they were stained.
The location is great and the staff was very helpful.
Our reservation was with breakfast included but due to staffing issues we didn't get breakfast. Instead we got a discount. I'd have preferred the breakfast. There were power issues and the power supply was very poor. I couldn't charge my phone and ipad.
The host/owner was very professional and helpful.
- very friendly and helpful owners - clean rooms and facilities - good location
This hostel has a great location - about 3 blocks from Plaza de Bolivar, a large supermarket, and just around the corner from a couple of good museums. It is about a 20 min walk to the Gold Museum, and the Museo del Oro TransMilenio bus stop, from where you can easily get to Portal Norte (for buses to locations such as Villa de Leyva) and the Las Aguas stop, from where you can get a bus to the airport (note that it is not a direct bus - you catch it to the end of the line (portal el dorado) and then switch to a green shuttle bus that will take you to the airport). I had the 4 bed dorm to myself for the 4 nights I was there, so that is always going to leave a better impression! The beds were very comfortable, each with an individual lamp. There are small lock boxes in the room, and the room itself was a good size. The dorm room is located on the road, so the traffic noise in the morning was quite loud, but not enough to stop me from sleeping in until 830am. There was shutters on the windows, which kept the room nice and dark. The bathrooms were always clean. They supply coffee and tea each morning at 830am. I do not recommend you stay here if you are looking for a typical hostel. There are no comfortable common areas, and there was very minimal mixing of guests while I was there. The owner, Josh, is very pleasant, and will provide advice, and call taxis for you. However, they do not offer a 'tour desk' service, but will instead direct you towards the information centre in Plaza de Bolivar. It really is more like a hotel than a hostel. The security is very good. Yes, you do have to ring a buzzer to get in and out however this was never a problem. The wi fi is really good in the common area, and reasonable in the dorm room.
The water pressure in the showers was absolutely rubbish. There is no kitchen, so you cannot cook. There is just a small fridge, and a microwave.
Very friendly host (Joshua was hugely helpful during our entire stay!), lovely hostel and beautifully decorated. Made you feel very much at home. Conveniently located in the centre of La Candelaria, and near all the museums and good shopping spots. A
The beds are very firm, though seems to be a feature of Colombian hostels. Water pressure is low but thankfully warm water was available so didn't mind too much! Wifi is weak in rooms, best to be in the communal areas for good connection. Had no trouble using Skype to call long distance with the internet.
Good WiFi. Good location.
Owner charged us more when we arrived than the price quoted on booking.com. It wasn't enough to fight over, but it was annoying and petty nonetheless. Coffee wasn't available until 8:30am.
the rooms were clean and ready. The house is old but it is in good conditions.The manager speaks English and Spanish. The location is good if you are visiting museums, it is walk distance to most of them. Clean towels are provided. There is a computer with Internet in the living room to use. you can leave your luggage here during the day after check out. There is a kitchen with fridge, microwave and coffe maker that you could use
The location is central, therefore there is a lot of noise from traffic, specially if you have the room with balcony. The included breakfast is poor, with just bread with butter/jelly and juice/coffee and I think we had a small slice of a fruit.
This hostal is literally around the corner from the old town and everything you need to visit. The owner is super helpful with info and anything you might need. It's also very safe.
The shower had very little pressure, but no big deal. Everytime we needed to get in or out we need to ring a bell for someone to open the door for us - while it's very safe, it can also be uncomfortable if you're coming back late at night and you're basically having to wake them up to open the door for you. Thus, no advisable for teenagers who wanna party. Party area is way up north anyway!
This is a great Hostel in Bogota! The owners are very nice and accommodating. Joshua the host - nothing was too much trouble for him. The accommodation is in a great location and has a friendly & homely feel. Very safe area. I hope to be back one day :)
Really nice and helpful staff!
