chen.yanru Dona Maria is the nicest hostel owner I've ever met. She went out of her way to make sure that I was comfortable and had all my needs taken care of, despite the language barrier. The property is full of historical character, painted in bright, inviting colors and topped off by quirky and quaint touches such as antique typewriters and cheery potted plants in its nooks and crannies. I was given a large private room with three beds, tall ceilings and windows that overlook a lovely, sun-drenched courtyard. Cable tv was a nice touch, especially the given the extremely economical price. Staying in Ivy Hostel made me feel as though I was part of this well-preserved and iconic neighborhood of La Candaleria in Bogota and I'd definitely stay there again given a return visit. Muchas gracias to Dona Maria and her sons! Y Chen
cubangel2003 It was a very nice place to stay, near to everything, 200 m to the transmilenio station (like a metro), the owners are very nice people, it was like stay at home for me, the girl that work there is very nice and beauty, the rooms very clean and well desing, i recommend a 100% this place
bischi To me it is like an oasis of peace in this big city. The staff is very nice and helpful. Security is very important to them. I use Anandamayi as my base while travelling around Colombia and it feels a little like coming home each time. Everything is always neat and clean; e.g. bathrooms, dorm & kitchen.
andres.seb Very nice hostal, with a great location with easy access to transport. Personnel really gentle and friendly. A nice place to be in Bogota. Un hostal muy agradable para una estadía en Bogotá, con personal muy amable, fácil acceso a transporte y una ubicación cercana a la mayoría de atracciones y sitios de interés.

borissmendes Today ends my stay in the hotel and enjoyed the lot and is comfortable clean and well servisio and pressures is very good they recommend
Dani A. L. I just have to say this: I felt just like home at Sue Candelaria hostel. I guess that means everything.
graygarden Location is perfect!! Right by plaza Corro de Quevedo which is full of young university students all the time. The hostel is relaxed and beautiful. Second floor has a room with glass roof top which gets nice and warm i the mornings. The young owners, Luis and Nicole are really nice and helpful. They also provide breakfast which is a huge plus. I recommend this place to my friends especially solo travelers.
gypsierose This area is near 4 universities so there is a lot of young people here. Very close to Monserrat (church on a hill) so there is a lot to do and check out. The staff at the hostel is exactly what others have written. It truly is more like staying at someone's home. They take care of you and are interested in getting to know you. Many times, they would accompany me down the street because they wanted to be sure I was safe. The facilities are good, three bath/ shower areas. The TRUTH is that the hotwater is only in the showers, would recommend walking with someone if you are out late (past dusk - only because of people drinking too much on the streets). There are other hostels in this area, the Casa Quevdo is near here but it is right in front of the square and liquor store -- if partying and drinking is your thing, then this might work. There is one other hostel which is near the main road (have not viewed it) as well. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this -- they don't speak English, so it's important to know. They are extremely helpful. Great area in the heart of Columbia.

waihekemik New hostel and lots of things look fresh and clean like the rooms. More money has been spent on looks that on some critical functional considerations. 1) the doorbell is noisy rings whenever someone wants to enter 2) the tv room has a tv with bad speakers so if the tv is on you can hear it in all rooms 3) the showers are dismal - really really poor - you can coax a dribble of hot water out of them on occassion but really they need to be fixed 4) they have no staff that speak english This is not a party hostel and the new owners are trying hard. There is a friendly atmosphere and the kitchen is well equipped.
