As reviewed many times before, their booking system isn't working. I walked in in the morning to ask for two beds for the night. Sure, no problem! When we showed up two hours later, no beds available. Maybe we could share one small dorm bed? No, sorry.

The hostel looks nice and has a open atmosphere. The room next to the administration is really smelly though, because there was is a fireplace inside. The breakfast is really poor and consist of only a little piece of bread (nothing to put on it, even no eggs) and a juice. Almost the whole staff was nice but there was... More

Stayed here 2 nights. Don't understand why there are so many positive reviews. There are only 2 showers and 2 toilets for the whole place. They were dirty when we were here too. And the water for the showers was so cold. Bogota is a cold place because of the altitude, but this place has only an outdoor courtyard to... More

We were arriving in Bogota late at night and wanted to make sure that we had a nice place to stay so I called Alegria's hostel the day before we left to make a reservation. I told them that we were going to arrive late and the woman assured me that the booking was made and that they would see... More

The staff really make Alegria's hostel a wonderful place to stay. They're very friendly and eager to help you find your away around the city. Lots of great restaurants and museums are walking distance away, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to couples and solo travellers.

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
