This is a great hostel within a great location in La Candelaria neighbourhood which is in the center. Nice typical colombian architecture. Staff is awesome and always helpfull. The breakfast is also very nice. Extremely fair price!

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

Good value for money hostel, located in La Calenderia neighbourhood, close to a lot of tourist restaurants and sites to visit. One clear disadvantage is the fact that it only has 2 bathrooms and in the morning it gets crowded, but that is the price to pay if you want to stay in the historical centre in a colonial type...

A little disappointed as room the first night was so small we could barely move. Beds not very comfortable. Second night we asked to move to another room which was bigger but not anywhere near as nice as the photos online.
