    Hello Alex!

    I hope this message finds you well. I’m writing to you to let you know that 4 friends and I have just opened a hostel chain called Explora Hostels. Our first hostel is called Explora Bogota and it is located in a strategic spot in La Candelaria, Bogotá, Colombia. We spent 6 months and a great amount of effort remodeling a spectacular colonial house to provide our customers with cutting edge facilities. We have replicated the business model of major European hostel chains providing a high quality service at a very low price. The hostel is served by Universidad de Los Andes students, who have the task of ensuring that our guests have an excellent stay like no other hostel in the city can provide.

    We want to invite you to check out our website: where you will find pictures and information about our place.

    We hope you like it and would be very grateful if you could recommend us in your webpage!

    Thank you very much for your support

      Hi Andres.

      I saw your site recently. I was actually going to buy that house and it’s twin next door a few years ago with my business partner at the time. The owner, after messing us about for ages, put the price up by 30% after sending the promesa de compraventa to her lawyer. Glad to see that someone has made a hostel out of it, it’s a spectacular building for a hostel. I wonder if you have plans to aquire the other house – we were going to knock down the dividing wall and thus have two massive patios, oh well…

      I’ve not added anything to my site for ages and probably won’t for a while, I’m working most of the time on my pub in Salitre. It’s called Britannia and is in the building that joins the Marriot hotel on the 26, you should pop by some time and try our beer Sierra del Tigre, it’s the best in Colombia! We can work out a special deal for any backpackers that you send over.

      Anyway, I’m keen to see the place, I’ll stop by when I’m next in La Candelaria.
