Hostels in La Candelaria, Bogotá, Colombia

Hostels in La Candelaria, Bogotá, Colombia

Fatima Hostel – Right around the corner from Bogota Bike Tours, Fatima is friendly and fun.

Hostel Sue – Sue (which means ‘traveler’ in an indigenous language), has two hostels, one down the street from us and the other a few blocks down on 16th St.

The Cranky Croc Hostel – This relatively new hostel is owned by an Australian.

Platypus Hostel – This is the grandaddy of hostels in Bogotá’s La Candelaria neighborhood. But you won’t see any platypuses or kangaroos around. Platypus has expanded down the block and around the corner, and even has pricey private rooms.

Destino Nomada – This new hostel on 11th St. has earned a good rep. But be ready to hike up the hill to get there!

Musicology Hostel – This new hostel, on 9th St., between 3rd and 4th Avenues, calls itself the ‘party hostel.’ But the rooms are arranged around grassy patios, and it seems rather peaceful.

Posada del Sol – Also on 9th St., between 3rd and 4th Avenues, just a few doors down from Musicology. This Korean-owned hostal even offers Spanish classes.

Villa Candelaria – On 3rd Ave., right around the corner from La Plaza del Periodista, el Eje Ambiental and Transmilenio.

Hostal La Candelaria – Located on 16th Street, across the street from Platypus.

El Cafecito – A ways outside La Candelaria, in a quiet neighborhood of English-style houses, this hostel is near the Parque Nacional and the Teusaquillo neighborhood. Sip a coffee in the comfortable, luxurious downstairs cafe.

Anandamayi Hostel – Seeking karma? This hostel on 9th St. is known as Bogotá’s hippie hostel.

Alegria’s Hostel – A small, friendly place on 2nd Av., between 9th and 10th streets.

Cacique Sugamuxi – You can’t miss this hostal, thanks to the colorful mural on its wall on 15th St. con 3rd Ave.

Bed and Breakfast La Plaza del Chorro – La Candelaria’s newest hostal, and one of its few bed and breakfasts, located a block from the Plaza.

Ciudad Invisible -Located in a quieter section of La Candelaria, near La Externado University, and right up the hill from Bogota Bike Tours.
