The following are the hostel, hostels and hostals we stayed at during our travels in Colombia.

Al Caravan Hotel in Medellin

A bit far from the closest subway station ( solid 15 minute walk through an industrial area). Nearby vicinity may be bars with ladies of the night but doesn’t feel unsafe.

Price: $20 per night.

Alegria Hostel in Bogota

Hostel with shared bathroom. Breakfast included which was basic but decent. Wifi was also okay. Big plus were two dogs that stayed there. Might have bedbugs. Shower in the big stone bathtub is pretty cool

Cost: $28 per night

Centro Real Hotel in San Gil

Room was on the third or fourth floor. Good wifi. Bathroom was shared but there was nobody around so it was the same as a private bathroom. Decent location. About 4 blocks away from main square.

Price: $20

Musicology in Bogota

We stayed here because we couldnt find the original hostel we were looking for. We stayed one night in a four dorm bedroom. Wifi was good. Place is run by fellow travellers and this led to some confusion. They have a bar upstairs. Breakfast and dinner was included.

Price: $27
