Bad Start to Colombia

I have arrived in Bogota and everything is fine so far. I got in around 5, and attempted to take a taxi to my hotel (a simple process I thought), but the driver repeatedly tried to rip me off. At first, he claimed that my hostel did not exist because of a recent fire. After making him take me there anyways, he ended up letting me out about 15 city blocks away from it. I would have noticed, but the street signs are nowhere to be found. He also tried to give me back the wrong amount of change, three times. So after an hour of wandering around Bogota with all of my belongings, I finally found the hotel with the help of two 16 year old military officers.
