An excellent quality safe hostel which is a homey oasis of cosy calm in the midst of a bustling La Candelaria. The private room we stayed in had an enormous double bed and the shared bathrooms are kept spotless. The room itself is nothing fancy and the chatter from the courtyard is easily followed (ear plugs recommended for light sleepers....

Hello, thanks for you review, we had a hot water problem during 2 days but it's fixed and working 100% of the time now. I'm sorry for this inconvenient. We're glad you enjoyed our breakfast, we try to offer something fresh and complete every day. Thanks again.

This hostel is nicely decorated with hot showers and decent beds. The staff is helpful and the location couldn't be better for the backpacker type. It's a bit loud, but it's a hostel and that should be expected. The wifi is the best i've ever experienced at a hostel.

This hostel is located in the historic center of La Candelaria. I really like the design and architecture of the neighbourhood. The hostel itself has a nice interior design. The beds were comfy. Each bed in the dorm had a curtain which is helpful if you need to rest during the day. Each bed area came with its own power...

Great location. Easy to get to the national park, not too long a bus ride to get to from Cartagena. Located in the centre of town and loved the two pools!! We had a twin room and it was super clean and great value for money. Local beach was interesting and a short ride to a popular beach that was...

The hostel is very clean, the beds are comfy (and in the dorms, they're all separated by curtains and each bed as it's on plugs and lights). Staff is super friendly and people at the front desk are fluent in English! Showers are clean and water is hot. Wifi is working well. The area (La Calanderia) is a bit shady...

I would really recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a comfortable yet affordable place to stay. People at the front desk are really nice and always willing to help you out at anything. Location is great in the center of Bogota, with lots of tourists, restaurants and bars nearby. Loved it!

Best facilities I've seen in a hostel so far (and I've been travelling around South America for 3 months). Clean dorms, comfortable beds with private curtains, personal lamp and charging point, massive lockers to fit even the biggest backpack, clean powerful and hot showers, nice common areas, and very fast wifi all over the hostel (including the dorm rooms).

We stayed at Masaya for 2 nights and were very satisfied. The atmosphere is nice, with a lot of interesting and fun people.
