We spent our first three nights in Colombia here. Nice hostel, conveniently located with friendly (Spanish speaking) staff. Clean bathrooms, nice showers. And the breakfast was great! Many nice restaurants, bars and coffee places in the area. Metro stop ten minutes walking from the hostel.

We stayed in a private room. The room was small but comfortable and had A/C. The location was good as it was within walking distance to local nightlife and the metro station (though this is about a 10/15 min walk). The staff were very helpful although their English wasn't great.
