Had a great time at this hostel. The location is perfect, near parque lleras so plenty of fabulous restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs nearby. Really safe area to walk around and very nice boutique style shops. The hostel itself had some great spaces to chill or drink, hammocks, a tiny pool, movie room and kitchen. I was in a dorm...

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights in a private double/ensuite/balcony. Room was nice and having door to balcony allowed air to freshen and cool room. Dana at reception was very helpful and professional. Hostel is mainly young party backpackers so expect lots of noise and loss of sleep.

I loved this hostel. Great food. Always good people coming thru and the location is super. In walking distance of everything you need to get to and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. Always lots of young social people around to make friends and the chill spaces are amazing!

The facility is generally nice. Having hammocks and a rooftop to chill on in nice. Also having a restaurant in the hostel is awesome as well. But that's it for positives from me. The staff was not helpful. The cleaning staff was unfriendly and would barge into rooms early in the morning before people woke up to change the garbages...

I arrived to Casa Kiwi with another traveler and we were placed in separate rooms. I was on the second floor dorm, "Azalea". The room had three bunks, secure lockers and a nice balcony. There is plenty of room to relax and socialize at this hostel: the rooftop patio, the restaurant patio or the super up cinema room with every...

After hearing great reports of this hostel from a friend I agreed to stay. The place is great, on first appearance. Very modern feel and lovely social deck area. However, some of the basics are lacking which lets the place down. There were no lockers in our room and when we requested them we were pointed in the direction of...

We stayed in a double room on the third floor. The room smelled like sewer when we arrived and there is noisy construction. The social aspects of the hostel are great. Other than that, the staff are rude and unhelpful which made our stay frustrating and regretful. Not to mention the lock on our door was broken and front door...

Basically Casa Kiwi is fine but there are so many other hostels in the area which are cheaper and have a much better feel. The facade of the hostel is nice, it looks new and almost like a hotel however that's where the problem lies - the staff act like they run a fancy hotel and treat you like a...

If you plan on getting your washing done here I would count your items before hand because they lose things and don't give a damn when you tell them. Infact probably just get it done somewhere else as it's really expensive anyway. The staff have been quite unfriendly throughout our stay and I would not recommend this hostel as the...
