Hostel was clean, our room was nice, the atmosphere is sociable and the location is good. The area is fantastic, lots of bars and restaurants and it takes 20 mins to walk to the metro station (or you can take a bus). Breakfast was good value for money, and there is free coffee. Staff were lovely.

Great stay. Nice guest and perfect, chilled atmosphere. Very close to Paque Lleras but far enough away to keep quiet. It is like hanging out a friends house! The rooms are good and the staff great. I'll be back.

It is a really comfortable hostel to stay in, I was in a six-bed dorm which was spacious, with individual small lockers at each bed for important items. I found...
