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. The room was beautiful and spacious and the bed and warm blankets were perfect.
Overall it's a really great hostel, the style and layout of the hostel makes it quite cosy and comfortable inside - which is just what you need after a long day walking the streets of la candeleria. It isn't a huge party hostel but there is definitely a social atmosphere - you can sit in the courtyard and drink whilst listening to your own music. Alegria also took us out one night to play tejhoe (not sure how to spell it) and it was really fun! She even drove us there and back in her car!
The hostel also had good security, and even though you had to ring a bell to get inside each time, it ensured that no unwanted outsiders could enter the place. We even felt comfortable enough to leave our room open during the day.
The staff were also super helpful, and even though they didn't speak spanish they tried to help out whenever possible! Alegria is really nice.
All in all, I Had my favorite stay in Colombia at this hostel, it is highly recommended... but book ahead!
