The staff is what makes Alegria's Hostel be an awesome place to stay in Bogotá. Viviana, Dana y María are the most friendly and welcoming people I´ve met during my trip. Even though facilities are not the best the staff makes you feel at home all the time. Alegria's hostel has a lot of potential, they just have to solve... More

Our stay in Alegria's hostel was fantastic. Everybody of the stuff was nice and disposable and it is located in a perfect area of the city, la Candelaria. Attention: some of the pics on tripadvisor don't correspond to the real Alegria's due that the owner had once another Alegria's in the same area. Anyway worth it and fair for the... More

Our stay in the alegrias hostel was wonderful. The staff is lovely and very helpful. The breakfast is very good, always fresh fruits, bread and fresh, natural juice. I really recommend the private room. There are not enough restrooms, sometimes you have to wait. But still, even there are a lot of people, it is very clean and nice. The... More

This is a nice hostel and we met some great travellers. The staff were amazing and outside felt safe. It did take a couple of days to get the room we had booked and the hostel could do with a few more toilet and shower facilities but we really enjoyed staying here

This was an awesome hostel to stay in as a first stop in Colombia. The hostel itself is very nice with room to cook and have drinks. The area was very safe and a short walk from shops and bars. The people working there were very nice and helpful. The owner (Alegria) is super cool and can give you help... More

Staff here are really helpful and informative and that is the real overarching positive nature of this hostel. Beds were comfortable and the hostel felt very secure with 24hr staff. Lounge áreas were good and wifi was generally good depending in the number of users. The breakfast is just bread and butter but you can improve this by buying some... More

Really great hostel. Great staff (Reuben is a really nice guy), cosy rooms, good facilities with burning hot water (adjustable), nice atmosphere, good value, nice and clean, all in all a really lovable place and a shame we only had one night in Bogota. It's a bit of a climb up the alleys but surely worth it.

Their photographer needs to get a bonus! Photos are absolutely no representation of this property. We stayed in a private room shared bathroom- room was tiny and unpleasant- nothing like photos on website. Bathrooms were dreadful and badly in need of an upgrade. It wouldn't take much but it just appeared to have been let go completely in the last... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night whist stopping over in Bogota. Location of is pretty good, a short walk down to the main area of La Candelaria. The staff are really friendly, really welcoming and funny. English isn't great but as with all the Colombians they don't let it stop them helping you and finding a way... More

We arrived in Bogota in January and was thinking of staying here but first we were put off going because we read reviews about the place being cold and so we stayed elsewhere.....anyway we returned to Bogota in March before leaving for Ecuador and decided to give it a try.....something about the look drew us in! We coulnd¨t believe how... More
