A very, warm friendly atmosphere. Staff are always welcoming and happy to help. The security is good here with 24hour reception. We have thoroughly enjoyed our staff here and would recommend this hostel. It is also in an excellent location, walking distance from the main square, with good restaurants nearby. Hostel also offers alot of tourist activities and information, which... More

Nicely situated in the Candelaria, the area of artists, the hostel adapted pretty well to ist surroundings. it has a beautiful kitchen, a comfortable yard with hammocks and colourful walls.. the dorms are quite cheap and they have everything you need. the staff is friendly and the included breakfast is surprisingly good. Croissants, good coffee and fresh juice are the... More

We arrived in Bogota after a long day of travel from San Gil and were looking forward to our private room. We were warmly welcomed and asked to sit down and offered hot beverages and to put down our bags. About 15-20 minutes later while waiting to get checked in we were informed that our room was not available and... More

We stayed in a private room here and it was fantastic for the price paid. I didn't actually arrange the booking so I cannot comment on that experience, but once we arrived we had no issues checking in at all. After dealing with crappy showers the entire trip, I am also giving Alegria 5 stars for an excellent shower! The... More

I stayed 8-nights! I thought about changing hostels because there are so many around but I really liked Alegria. The place was just a few blocks (10-15 min walk) from downtown. It's small so it did fill up on some nights - reservations are a good idea. It wasn't a party hostel (thank goodness) but it did always have some... More

My wife and I sent an email to this hostel asking if they had any private rooms available for 3 nights and to confirm the price. They confirmed to have private rooms available for the dates we will be in Bogota and confirmed the price of 60,000 for a private room. We sent a follow up email to book it... More

Stayed here less than a week ago in a private room with my boyfriend. I was a little fearful that we may have had troubles with our booking (as per other reviews) especially because we were checking in at 10pm at night. But alas! When we arrived our booking was there and we were checked into our room just fine.... More

My first stay at this hostel was very disappointing, because the private room I had booked and which had been confirmed was not available. In fact I arrived one day later than booked due to a flight delay, but I had immediately informed the hostel both by phone and e-mail and asked them kindly to keep up my reservation. After... More

We felt more than a little duped by some of the reviews of Alegria's in the Candelaria district of Bogota (an amazing city!), which said that this hostel was charming and beautiful, with a hands-on owner who could show you around the area. And it is indeed a beautifully decorated pension style building - almost like an Alpine cottage in... More
