“Very good!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

The hostel is located in a safe area of Bogota, close to a bunch of restaurants and shopping malls and the Transmilenio stop Heroes (there is a direct line that goes to la Candelaria, the J72/ different number on the way back), and the price is a fantastic deal, given the location. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. It is a bit noisy - traffic may wake you up around 6 am, but all in all it's not that bad.
The owner, Antonio, is very helpful - ask him about places to visit, navigating Bogota's public transport system, etc. If I come back to Bogota, I will definitely stay here again!

My fiancé and I stayed in Bogota at Chapinorte 3 nights and it was an excellent choice. We paid online for the room before we got there. The owner/manager Antonio gave us an option of airport pick-up, which we took. We ended up taking an earlier flight back, but were able to coordinate it with him smoothly. He was a wonderful host, very helpful and friendly.

We stayed in a room with a private bathroom and it was spacious and clean. We also had access to a large living room area. The building is very secure and the location is perfect to Bogota. It is close to good restaurants and nightlife and a few blocks from the bus station, that runs like a train station, and will take you to downtown/historic district. We would definitely recommend!

...noise every night and every morning due to traffic and loud pedestrians, this place is for you.

...taking cold showers every day, this place is for you.

...not being notified when there will be no water and have to wait for 2 hours for it to be turned on, this place is for you.

...not being notified that you can't use the bathroom (no toilet and no shower) due to unannounced kitchen construction In the common area, this place is for you.

...being charged $25 US dollars for airport transportation when you can pay roughly 20-25 Colombian pesos ($10 US dollrs), this place is for you.

Only good thing about this place was the location. If you like sleeping in and want peace and quiet choose another place.

My trip in January to visit family in Bogota and Manizales started with my stay at Chapinorte owned and operated by Antonio. Who is by all aspects a great guy and will go out of his way to make sure your stay is pleasant. The location can't be beat. The hostel is within 2 blocks (literally) of great dining, bars, clubs, 3 malls, 2 movie theaters, 3 casinos. if you are a light sleeper ask for rooms in the back of the property. Mine was on the 3rd floor corner room (great view) but by 8 am the city is buzzing with activity. so unless you are an early riser or sleep like a rock (me) ask him about options. Overall, I felt very secure, with a double lock system to the property (at the main door with a key card, keylock at your floor, and a lock in your room. I look forward to seeing my friend next year. on a side note. a lady will set up a fruit stand right on the corner....i suggest trying everything she has as the fruit was probably picked from the tree the night before.

Room Tip: ask for interior room if you are a light sleeper. Some rooms do have bathrooms but not enough guest...

The room was clean, the wifi was strong, the bathroom was clean. Antonio was extremely friendly and welcoming. Rosie was also friendly and helped us call a taxi for the airport. It was also centrally located to lots of bars and restaurants. The neighborhood felt very safe and the building was very secure. I highly recommend staying at Chapinorte!!!

We stayed here on three seperate visits in Dec 2012 and Jan 2013. To us this place was like home. Antonio the owner is brilliant, always making sure you are happy and very funny to have a chat with also. Brilliant English speaking. We stayed in the private double with bathroom; the first time we stayed upstairs and the second and third on the level below. The hostel is part of a residential block of flats, very nice and very safe. Good shared kicthen and lots of facilities like info and book exchange etc. We cant recommend this place enough - it it just the kind of place you need if you want to explore Bogota but also get a comfy nights rest in a safe environment. Thank you Antonio, we still havent found another place like it yet! Oh and i almost forgot... we also had breakfast in bed one day, a complete luxury!
