Bogotá Centro - as the name indicates - is located in the historic center, close to all the famous spots you would want to visit in the Colombian capital city. Plaza de Bolívar - the main square of Bogota -, Botero Museum, Modern Art Museum of Bogota (MAMBO), and La Candelaria - the city's historic and cultural neighborhood, are all around the corner.
The Cool Factors
The hotel/hostel is inside a tower next to Colombia's tallest skyscraper, the BD Bacatá complex, the country's first crowdfunded skyscraper. Spotty's building is shorter but equally impressive, with its 328-foot (100-meter) tall mural decorating its facade. Thanks to the vertical construction, you will have an amazing view of the city from the rooms and especially from the rooftop terrace. Including the small pool and a jacuzzi. Not bad for a hostel!
As in all the best hostels, you will also find a fully stocked, state-of-the-art kitchen here. So you can prepare your specialties here while having a pretty good view of Bogota.
You'll be happy to know that all your triple-used t-shirts can be finally washed at Spotty. It's hassle-free, too, as you can do it yourself. There is no need to wait and worry that you will not get your clothes back in time or they'll shrink to half the size as they used the wrong setting.
Digital nomads' favorite feature: the dedicated office. Yep, a cool shared space is available to all guests to work - or to brag to fellow travelers about how many digital followers you have.
Gym & Yoga Room
The workout facility is way cooler than in any regular hotel. You can practice boxing, and there is a separate space for yogis to perfect those asanas.
If you are traveling solo and you would like to save, Spotty has mixed dorms with bunk beds that you can fully close with curtains. And they get the same super comfy mattresses as the private rooms.
Or you can go on a splurge and have a room (and private bathroom!) for yourself or share it with a friend/partner. By splurge, I mean Manhattan-style panoramic views but for a fraction of the price as in New York City. Enjoying watching the city pulse from this height is a one-of-a-kind experience.
The beds are pressed to the edge of the window, creating a cozy reading nook with such an urban view of Bogota that you will not want to leave your room. But you should, because this gets better if you see what's on the rooftop.

Fun & Entertainment
Spotty's strongest side is its vast choices for having fun. You'll find communal spaces with bean bags and suspended chairs, a gaming room with arcades and a pool/ping pong table, a cinema room with massive plush sofas, and of course, the rooftop with a bar and the pools - a swimming pool and a hot tub. It's also the place where they organize live music and wild parties.
