I visited this hostel with my boyfriend. It was our first stop in Colombia and we had a great first experience. The staff was super helpful, their English is somewhat limited but they are happy to help with anything you need. It's a smaller hostel with a cozy vibe. We ended up reuniting with several of the guests during our... More

We spent just one night in a shared dorm but had a really good experience. Viviana, our hostess, was extremely pleasant and lovely, helping us with everything we needed. Besides that, the hostel is located in a nice area, nearby the university and great bars and restaurants! The only problem was that the internet didn't work out while we were... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a small private on the first floor. The bed was soft and clean, the wifi was good, we sat in the courtyard and played chess and had a really lovely time. The owners have two adorable dogs that we got to see, and everyone sat around and shared aguardiente and laughed and had a... More

We had a terrible experience with Alegrias Hostel. I booked a room for the1st of February. We got to the hostel around10pm and they told us we were late to check in. They sold our room!!!! I still can't believe that. It is ridiculous and not  acceptable. They blamed hostelworld. They said that the hostelworld didnt do their update. They gave us... More

There seems to be a confusion with this hostel because some pictures on tripadvisor and hostelworld are nothing like what we have seen. We had a dorm opening on the main courtyard with no isolation, and very old beds with old blankets, we were cold at night. We certainly didnt see any nice fire places! What about duvets and brand...

I don't know why some reviews say this is a cozy hostel. It is freezing. It has so much outdoor space that would be perfect for a different climate, but in bogota it is cold and it rains. All the time. Our bedroom had a door which led to the outside so there was constantly a cold breeze. I was... More

I stayed in the hostel for two nights. The staff was great and so were the other guests. But the hostel was boring and the free breakfast was not a real breakfast at all. The breakfast was bread and fruit. The hostel was a little of a walk from the main plaza and there are hostels closer to the main... More

Alegria´s hostel is a pretty little spot, in the outskirts of la Candelaria, place with nice bars and restaurants. The staff made us feel comfortable and were eager to help us. The downsides were too few showers in the hostel and a pretty bad isolation (both noice and heat) in our room, which was facing the street. The other rooms... More

Me and my boyfriend States here for 2 nights and had a great experience staying here. The rooms were clean, everyone was so friendly and it was a short walk down the coolest cobble street to the centre. There is a lovely relaxed vibe with 2 beautiful dogs roaming around. We felt very happy leaving our bags in the room... More
