A quaint inn near the heart of old-town Bogota

Hostal Baluarte has good Wifi and a shared bathroom, but this is where the similarity to a hostel ends. Near the lively heart of Candelaria, it is quiet and secluded. Baluarte is a simple, picturesque, family-run inn, where you ring the doorbell for admittance and the hostess gives you a map and helps you make the most of your stay in Bogota. My room and the others I saw were private and cozy, and the old-fashioned doors have a bolt for the inside and a padlock for the outside. There aren't many rooms, so the outdoor patio doesn't get crowded. If you want to experience Colombia and not a backpacker's frat house, this is the place.
Un hostal sencillo y tranquilo en una casa pintoresca. La duena es muy atenta, y ayuda mucho por pasar un buen rato en Bogota.
