Boutique and business hotels are scattered north of Calle 65, many within walking distance of the lively scenes of Zona G, Zona Rosa or Parque 93. La Candelaria is where most of Bogotá's attractions and budget lodgings are located – including many excellent hostels.

La Candelaria

In the past couple of years, the historic suburb of La Candelaria has seen an explosion in hostels. Generally, private rooms in hostels are better than cheapies in the district's dated, grubby hotels. In the higher-end price bracket there are a couple of fine locales with more colonial spirit than you'll find anywhere else in the capital.
