    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.

    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!

    The owner called Joshua is very friendly and helpful. The hostel is very agreable. We stayed at a double bedroom with bathroom, that was really small, but totally ok. The wifi works great, and they have computers at the lobby that you can use freely. The localization is amazing, next to the botero and oro museums. I would recommend this hostel for sure.

    The brakfast is very basic, but also ok as it is a hostel, and not a hotel. It came with white bread, jam, fruits and coffee or tea. You can also pay extra for eggs.

    The Hostel was very well located, near the hostel are many of restaurants, places to visit in bogotá, and places to eat the typical food of Colombia Good and nice people work there, especial Joshua, and the rooms were very comfortable, quiet and clean. Very nice place to stay in Bogotá!

    The breakfast was very simple and quiet fast in the morning. But in a way, is satisfactory.

    Clean. Nice guy running the place.

    Matress was so thin it hurt! Also benches in the common area were so uncomfortable that there is really no place to chill out. Had to check out because of that.

    The owner of the place is very knowledgeable and helpful and the place is extremely safe. There are locks and video cameras inside and there's always someone to let you in and out of the building and helping with you with directions or advice. The big rooms are nice and the hostel is nicely decorated. It feels more like a boutique hotel so I would definitely recommend it for anyone especially for solo women travellers. Location is very good as well! The wifi works great, a big asset for South American travellers!

    The eggs at the breakfasts for which you need to pay a bit extra were not very fresh and the overall breakfast is very basic ( toast, jam, fruits, coffee or tea). The one bed room is extremely small. If you pay by credit card you pay an extra small fee 1$ so not a bit deal. But overall fantastic stay.

    Great location and helpful staff. Also, a simple, but nice breakfast was included. The TV was nice to have even though the angle couldn't be adjusted since it was mounted on the wall.

    You have to buzz the staff every time you want to enter AND exit. The rooms do not block out noise so have ear plugs with you.

    The place is clean and spacious, in a picturesque old house. The location is excellent, right in the heart of the Candelaria.

    The beds are very firm... one might even say downright hard. While the location is lovely during the day, at night it can be a bit seedy on the streets around the hostel.

    Lovely old well maintained building right in the centre of the la caladaria district in bogota. The guy managing the hostel was awesome! Spoke great English and was very helpful. The lighting in the bedroom was great too. Lamps instead of horrible fluro lights

    The main let down was the cold dribble of a shower. Lucky it was hot that day, otherwise it would have been horrible! The breakfast was pretty average, although you can't really complain when it's free.

    The owner is very friendly. It'a all very clean and very safe. The location can't be better.

    The shower can be improved, the room is a bit small but the high ceiling make up for it. Few hangers in the closet could help. They could offer an better breakfast for few dollars, as the sign says.
