Cold showers, broken shower heads, room wasn’t clean. WiFi poor. Kitchen facilities good. Only reason we give this a 3 is because staff were excellent and helpful. Provided airport transfer and called cabs for us.
Decent hostel for a good night's sleep

La Pinta is a nice hostel and ideal if you want a decent night's sleep and to stay in a quiet, safer area of Bogota. We were aware of the negative connotations around Bogota being a dangerous place (we found this the complete opposite) so while it's a bit far out from the popular La Candelaria area, the neighbourhood is easily accessible by bus and we felt safe walking there day and night. The breakfast on offer was ok and while the staff were nice enough, it was a bit awkward checking out when they asked whether we wanted to leave a tip when we paid. This was the only place in Colombia where the staff asked about this and while I had no complaints about them, they didn't really do anything above and beyond the basics to merit this (no room service etc) so it made it slightly awkward checking out and effectively being pressured into leaving a tip. All and all it didn't ruin the trip and I'd still recommend it as a decent place to stay.
Would recommend if looking for solitude away from La Candelaria

When I checked out, there was some question over whether or not I paid. Thankfully I had asked for and kept my receipt. Even so, there seemed to be a question about whether I paid the right amount. No hot water. Bathroom ceiling was incomplete, but didn't appear to be under construction; you could basically look up to the attic. Breakfast appeared to be cereal and a small fruit plate, but I am not sure. When I arrived at the kitchen, no one said anything or explained how it worked, and I was in a rush to leave so didn't attempt to take advantage of the breakfast options. It appears you can pay to have a more extensive breakfast (due to cards with price lists and breakfast items). Staff was friendly and for the most part tried to help out when asked. You have to buzz in to get into the building and doors, even for dorms, were locked with a key provided to guests. Lockers for each dorm bed included a lock, but not all locks worked. Quick and reasonably priced laundry service. Note that not all staff, even at reception, speak English so it is best if you have some Spanish skills. There were hardly any people staying here. Was kind of an odd vibe overall, possibly due to few guests. Common areas included a bar area, kitchen and reception area that was like a living room with a desk. Neighborhood is safe according to the internet, but residential with lots of nice (read: not budget friendly) restaurants. So, not much to see or do unless you want to do things you do at home (cinema, eat pizza, etc.). Close to a 24 supermarket though. Lots of noise from the nearby busy road woke me up at 6. Easy and convenient transport to old city center by public transport (~2500 COP one way), but 30+ minutes each way.

Super helpful. One of our party lost his passport and they went out of their way to help. A nice kitchen to work in. A great grocery store is just a few blocks away. They had good recommendations for places to eat.
There for a week and returned - one of the best anywhere!

Friendly hostel in a great place, Daniela, Catalina and all the staff are fantastic, a great mix of people so whoever you are you'll meet a great bunch. Nice rooms and the hostel is in Bogota's best district for bars and restuarants. Has it's own bar but it's a very chilled vibe and never too loud. Stayed for a week and came back a month later it was so good. Cheers guys.
