Lonely Planet review
This newer 'boutique' branch to the Platypus hostel nearby goes for the private-bathroom crowd, with great rooms with masculine hardwoods, a narrow terrace perfect for watching the 5pm weekday university fashion show in the street below, and a wonderful rooftop terrace.
Our independent authors have visited Casa Platypus and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Bogotá.
