It must have been renovated or come under new management since the old reviews on here - this hostel is great! It was very cheap for the dorms, and about 15 minutes walk to Zona T, which is the nicest part of Bogota. Much safer than the areas further south (don't stay in La Candelaria like we did at first...

Really wish there was a zero star rating. We had booked for 11 nights but stayed 1. Ended up costing us $75 USD as we had paid 17% deposit and in order for them not to charge to full amount I had to pay a further $20. We stayed in a private room which was filthy. Cobwebs everywhere and stained...

North House Hostel's staff were very friendly and down to earth. My brother and I arrived at the Hostel at around 12 AM after an exhausting over extended bus ride from Medellin. Thankfully they answered the door. North House is located in Zona T, a safe area with bars, restaurants and dancing clubs within walking distance. The hostel itself was...

The staff here were very nice & also spoke English but we didn't like it here. The bleach smell was sickening but the place still felt dirty because of the dark dingy furniture. I had a cold shower. The place just didn't have a nice feel to it so we stayed out all day and moved after the first night.

I really liked staying here...it was clean, comfortable and the owners, Jose and Oscar, were very friendly and helpful. It's also close to the Zona T, so it was very convenient for a friend and me to go out for a nice dinner overlooking the park. I hope you give North House a chance. You'll be happy you did.

A quiet hostel. The staff were kind of awkward and acted more like guests. Quite quiet. Good cleanliness. Showers aren't the best but do the job. Good kitchen. Decent value. Excellent location. Good value. Very safe area. Rooms are decent enough, although some are quite dark. Make sure you bring a lock for the locker!

“Dorm Rooms are 6 guests/room...or...10 guests/room... "Splurge" a little, and pay a bit more for less guests/room (i.e. 6 guests/room dorms)--it's worth it!”
