Alegria (the owner) receive you with warmth and advises you on everything you need and guide you with all the cool things in Bogotá.
The house is beautiful and you can rest and wake up in the morning with a delicious breakfast.
Nice place and excellent service.

I landed in Bogotá ill and spent my four days here mostly in bed recovering, or sat in the main living room! What this hostel lacks in service or modern appliences it makes up for in character and comfort. Theres 2 showers and both cold, a small kitchen, one TV, and one computer. But this hostel is in an amazing location and amazing old house, it has comfortable beds and sofas to relax on. It has one fire place and no heating so take a few jumpers, however beds are more than warm at night.

It within a stroll of Bogotá city centre and cable car, theres no need for any cabs or buses. Plenty of restaurants and take aways around, aswell as shops.

Id happily stay again!!!

the hostal is located in the centre of bogota (well, a 5 min walk that is), so that's nice.
They have 2 very nice dogs but those sit on the sofa as well so the sofa as the floor in general in covered in dog hair. They also walk into dorm at the from, which some people might mind.
I was in 4 bed dorn without window. Beds comfy. Kitchen spacious but not really that many tables to sit down and eat. It is chilly in the evening so bring a jacket.
Female staff a bit odd but male nice.

Our flight was seriously delayed reaching Bogota, and by the time we arrived at Alegrias Hostel it was 10pm at night. There was a wonderful welcome and we had a great double room. The staff and other travellers were very friendly. The weather was quite cold when we were there, but there were blankets on the bed and more in the lounge if you wanted them. Coffee/tea all day, and croissants for breakfast. It's located in La Candleria, great architecture, museums, restaurants and concerts.

Room Tip: There are two locations, we were in the second location just up the road. The largest room has a little road noise but we slept fine at night.

It's e very friendly not to big hostel in candelaria in Bogota. It is very good located to reach all attractions around Bogota. Candelaria is very save and you can find several cheap restaurants. Alegrias is very clean and offers a very good value for your money. Moreover the owner is very friendly and helpflull. The atmosphere is very familiar and you just feel confortable. It is really one of the best hostels ive ever seen!

Room Tip: Dorms are better than 4 bed rooms. There are incredible double rooms with a great view over the city.
