We have a hostel, the dream of two Colombian backpackers, it has been running for a year. We are located in Chapinero neighborhood at Bogotá, Colombia. This is the universities district, is renowned to be a young neighborhood with a bohemian mood, which you can feel on it's design stores, fusion and avant garde restaurants and hundreds of other places you will only see here. The hostel's house dates from 1943 and it's been declared as of cultural interest by the district. This is the perfect spot for you to learn, teach and really seize the experience at the city. Our goal is to make our guests to feel as part of the city and not just regular tourists, we are devoted to improve everyday, and we want you to be a part of this! We also own a coffeshop, which is among the many thing that await you at Bogotá. Here we held free salsa classes every Sunday! And a language and cultural exchange every 2 weeks on Thursdays, the perfect place to practice your spanish or any other language you want to.

We are two young backpackers born and raised on Bogotá. Most of our staff at the hostel are volunteers. But our whole coffee shop staff are local girls. You will be staying at our 8 bed dorm, and while you are not at your shift you will be a guest in our hostel! Which of course means breakfast is included and you can enjoy all our facilities and services.

It was great! Pedro, Jessica, Victor, Jesus (and Varun), they all were amazing!!! It was such nice energy that I got some friendships there to travel together later!
Thank you, Pedro and everyone for the opportunity there!




Fue una gran experiencia y un placer trabajar en CXHostel. El equipo es súper acogedor e lo hizo todo más fácil. El hostal es muy bueno y está cerca de todo lo que hay de bueno en Bogotá.

No podría haber elegido mejor lugar para comenzar mi viaje y espero volver sea como huésped o voluntario.

Sólo puedo agradecer a Pedro por la oportunidad y decir que no piensen dos veces cuando quieran hacer un voluntariado en Bogotá, hagan en CXHostel.

Fue chévere!!!




CxHostel es un segundo hogar para mí en Bogotá... estoy re agradecida con Pedro y todo el equipo, por la atención y toda la buena onda brindada. Aprendí mucho con las actividades a realizar en el hostal y sobre todo me llevo en el corazón grandes amistades... Pedro es súper open mind y relajado así que toda la comunicación y colabaración han sido 100% gratas. Me llevo una experiencia re cheveré, agradecida de corazón por haberlos encontrado y por haberme abierto las puertas de su espacio!! :)


Perfect for you if you're looking for
