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

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...
