The rooms are nice, and kept clean. My room had a window into the inside patio, so there was some noise from the common areas noe and again, but not too much or too loud. Was really happy with my stay, and the staff was super friendly and helpful if you needed anything.

I've spend 3 nights in this guesthouse in the historical centre of Bogota. The colonial interior is really beautifull and the rooms are really spacious and clean. The bathrooms are big and have great warm showers. The staff is really friendly and help you out with everything.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is located right in the center of Bogota (Candeleria area) and near all the attractions: the gold museum, churches, the cable car and a lot of restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful and they provide an excellent breakfast which is included in the...

Nice place to stay in the heart of el Centro in Bogota's Candelaria district. While the area may cater more to the partier backpacker type, Casa Platypus provides a more chill atmosphere, which I appreciated being able to retreat a bit from the busy city center. The staff, Paloma, Ramon and Felipe are really great and really impressive as they...

The location is great and safe - there are museums, bars and restaurants all within walking distance. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay and they also provide an incredible breakfast, with made to order eggs! Be aware...

What a great environment for travelers. Hernan is a wealth of information and the place is always fun. The location is perfect for any trip to Bogota, within easy walking distance to the Septima and all major transport.

This is a typical colonial style property with a nice interior courtyard and (steep to access) roof terrace. A good location for everything in downtown Bogota, easily walkable. Our room was very small with practically nowhere to put clothes or toiletries but the air-conditioning worked and it was a good mid-range option. Lots of street noise on Friday night even...

Do not be misled by the outside of this friendly hotel, take off the wrapper and enter a very comfortable easy going hotel with a hostel feel, English speaking staff in reception helped me out of a predicament (airport transport failed to arrive an alternative was arranged via the tour company who had arranged it - something I was unable...

This is a well-run, clean hostel very conveniently located close to the Gold Museum, Bolivar Square, La Candeleria, and public transportation. The multi-lingual staff can be very helpful. Breakfast is good. We had a room on the outside of the hostel next to a major street. It was very noisy. If you can get an interior room, you will sleep...

This place is like an upmarket hostel, well equipped with an interior courtyard. Rooms are not big but very comfortable with hot water. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The great thing is the friendly staff who will make an espresso coffee when you ask! A great bonus for coffee drinkers like me.
