Recommended moto hostel bogota

Hello , everybody , I’m looking for a place to stay in Bogotá. This will be the end of my trip and I need time to ship my bike home and get to know the city as well . Can anybody recommend a hostel in bogota for motorcycle riders , even though I will be without a bike for the last three , four days?

Hello Friederrein,

There are a lot of hostels in Bogota (La Candelaria Zone for example), you just have to ask if they have a parking lot, I don't know exclusive moto hostels in the city; If you are going to come to Bogotá, do not forget to eat ajiaco and almojabanas

I went to Tip Top backpackers and they accepted to store my DL650.

They own 2-3 hostels in the Candeleria and they even allowed me to stay at one hostel while storing the bike at their other hostel.

The cheaper hostel on the top of Calle 12C is the one with the parking area. It's also kind of a party hostel.

The other hostel is a little bit down the hill close to the Cranky Croc hostel. It's nice and quieter and of course costs more. (I forget the name, it might be called Tip Top 2 but I am not certain.

I stayed at the nicer hostel at first then moved to the cheaper hostal to be close to my bike cuz I had to work on it.

Be aware that it's kind of a pain on a motorcycle in the area because it's all steep hills and all one way confusing curvy streets.
