We enjoyed our stay here, the hostel is really colourful with lots of plants and the dorm we stayed in was dark but comfortable. The hosts were helpful and friendly and the hostel has a relaxed vibe. The lounge area is nice and guests are welcomed to use Netflix and watch films. The showers were warm, Wi-Fi good and they...

Really nice hostel with helpful hosts, who make you feel at home! You can ask the boss almost any question and they will try to help you! It is not super luxurious, but therefore, you also don't pay a lot. And it is charming!

In the most inspiring neighboorhoud in Bogota you can find the Lima Limon hostel, an arty house with a good atmosphere. The owners speak only Spanish and love to relax on the couch. The beds are clean and some cats protect the place from other dirty animals. Enjoy the art, enjoy the people, don't stay to long.

I spent my first night in Bogota at Lima Limon because the hostel where I usually stay was full. They called Andrés and he came right down and escorted me up as it was late-night. In the morning there was a very chill scene. Although there were several groups of travelers there, everyone was respectful. Some were playing instruments and...

Was here for one night but it's not the best hostel I've stayed in. Place is owned by a French guy and girl. The entire time we were there, they were smoking weed inside the hostel and were just laying on the couch. We didn't feel very welcome or comfortable with them. Also the hostel is pretty small so the...

Visited this hostel with 2 friends and it was not the experience we were hoping for. The arrival, beds, and location were fine. However, the atmosphere was very unwelcoming. When arriving at the hostel after dinner we were frowned upon as we entered and the whole house smelled of weed, including the rooms. The owners were very unfriendly in their...

The hostel is very nice and colorful designed. It remembers at a artist community. We liked that there are a lot of plants around. It made a good atmosphere. The time we stayed there it was clean and well maintained. The only thing i can complain that toilet seat on the men´s bathroom was missing. Unfortunately the house was way...

Wallet got stolen and owners where of no help. Actually made me and my friends leave because we wanted the police involved. The person we are sure that took the wallet from my bed moved all of their belongings into the owners room prior to the polices arrival.... Fishy.

The owners where the ones that called the police, all the case was solved as it was supposed to solved. Nothing ever happens in the Hostel, we are very sorry that this happened and we are sure it will never happen again.

This place is a home away from home. We stayed here twice whilst in Colombia! I felt very comfortable in this hostel, it is absolutely beautifully decorated, very peaceful, chilled vibe. Staff are helpful and friendly. It's in a great location and I felt very safe here. Breakfast could be improved which is the only fault I can think of....
