Positives: shower hot, clean, nice rooftop terrace, close to many tourist attractions, bars, and restaurants Negatives: The building is a large student residence, and they rent out the rooms during the summer/holidays when the students aren't there. Alejandro (who runs the airbnb listing) was not there and we worked with another guy who lived in the building, Juan. They were both very nice, but we had no way of contacting Juan by phone/web, so when we needed something we had to wait until we both happened to be home to find him. It's above a couple loud bars, so if you're sensitive to noise, it may bother you. There's no heat in the building so gets quite cold at night. Overall a pleasant experience, but I might've stayed in a hostel instead for a similar price.

Great host(s)! I definitely enjoyed the individuals at this place. As a commenter said the beds were hard and it is a little loud. That being said, I don't know what one would expect for the price! It's in a central location to see many of the attractions in Bogota. Though the location is central, central in Bogota is somewhat sketchy (a few locals expressed their apprehension in meeting me around that location.). I would be careful, and would be extra vigilant if you are staying here (Don't be a "Dar Payapa" a Colombian idiom that stands for "making yourself vulnerable"). I would recommend it if you are looking for a cheap, private room in a central location in a cool community this is it. If you are looking for something such as a better bed, safer neighborhood, etc. I would steer you towards other districts, and airbnb accommodations. Bogota is a huge city with many divergent neighborhoods. A willingness to get out of the tourist quarters will better help you appreciate this divergent, and diverse city.

Alejandro was very welcoming, attentive, and helpful both during our arrival and our stay in La Candelaria. Our schedule changed slightly for our arrival and Alejandro was responsive and helpful. A highlight of our stay was getting to play Tejo the first night in Bogota. The room and en suite bathroom worked well for our stay. Though there is street noise due to bars and restaurants below the apartment. The apartment is conveniently located next a Bogota Beer Company location and a quick walk to the Museo del Oro.

Alejandro was an attentive & entertaining host. Him, Juan & other longer term residents were very hospitable & showed us around the city quite a bit. A lot of great late night conversations to be had, look forward to coming back!

Alejandro & Juan are excellent hosts, they are full of energy and like to have fun... this is a very friendly house. The apartment is clean, tidy and the location and neighbourhood is very nice. There are many food options nearby, and also a number of attractions. My room was large & secure, with a private bathroom included. I highly recommend staying here, and look forward to coming back again. Thank you guys for your warm welcome to Colombia!!

Adorei ter ficado na casa do Alejandro. Fui muito bem recebida e acolhida por todos. As instalações da casa são simples e aconchegantes, além de ter ótima localização.

I'm from Bogotá. I run a student residence with another friend, so over the semester we host students from all around the world and show them the best costumes and places of the city and the country. On December and June they're gone, so we are happy to host people through Airbnb…
