Looking for a place to stay in Colombia was a little bit amusing. A lot of place to stay with condition and facilities. For example you can choose a small house or big house in complex area or even in apartment. Stay with friend college or with house-parent or with a big family. They maybe have private or share bath room, TV (in your room or living room), but wifi is a must for internet connection. Some of them provide meals and laundry. Some others allow us to use the kicthen. Depend on the condition.
This is my first homestay, in a complex area which is guarded by security. The place is in the middle of city, 10 minutes walk distance to bus stop (transmilenio). My room was roomy with wifi and share bath room. Served meals twice a day (breakfast+dinner) and i can use the kitchen. The cost was taken 1,216mil for a month. A little bit expensive for me. Stayed with a granny and a little bird, remind me to carton aboint tweety bird and a granny. But too bad no sylvester around 😉
