Worst Hostel we had on our trip! The sheets were full of dead little insects, there was blood on the wall and you cannot call the mattress a mattress. Also the room was even smaller than expected so that we had to sleep with our backpacks on the bed. Although Yolanda was very friendly we had a fue issues with her: we had to be back before 12 and one time we couldn't enter the hostel because she wasn't there and forgot to leave us the keys. It was at night, we had some valuable stuff with us and it was getting a little bit dangerous for us. We wouldn't recommend this hostel (if you can call it like this)!
The location is amazing. Felt very safe. Near everything. Easy to walk around. There’s a cute little parc near with lots entertainments and a nice vibe.
It felt like we were staying at our mom’s place, but not in the good sens. We had to say when we were going out, when we were thinking of coming back, the owner always locked the doors with chain so we had to ask her to let us out and in. We went out and she wasn’t happy that we came back late so she told us we couldn’t go out later than midnight. We had no autonomy whatsoever. And we kept thinking, what would happen if there’s a fire? We are locked inside so it’s really not safe. She told us we couldn’t take ling showers. It felt like we were always watched. The beds were a bit uncomfortable. And it was cold. So cold. The rooms aren’t well isolated so it’s as cold outside then it is inside. Very humid too.
Explanation of the city centre
Room really small, showers uncomfortable --> no space to change your clothes, mattress of the bed very hard and out of gum, only 8 minutes of hot water, no key to get into the hostel
Yolanda was the perfect host. She was very patient with our lack of Spanish and still used a map to show us the main tourist attractions and chatted using loads of gestures to help us understand. The location was great and it was the perfect place to stay in Bogota.
The hostel is in an amazing location- literally few minutes walk from lots of bars, restaurants, street food vendors. It felt safe. The host doesn't speak English but we managed with our Spanish and she was most helpful. Helped us getting to places without taking a taxi, gave us an advice on where to go for food... All in all, she's a heart and soul of that place so if you need a place to stay for a couple of nights, i'd recommend this one.
