It has been about two and a half years since I last visited Bogota and stayed in this property. To not only see the same pleasant staff but for them to recognize you and greet you like an old friend is just half the reason that makes this place so special. There isn't much I can add since my last review as it hasn't changed a bit. I really hope it stays that way, and can only say if you are looking for somewhere tranquil,calm, peaceful and comfortable with lovely people then stay at Anandamayi Hostel.
