Great hostel that I warmed to over my stay. Met some awesome people and there are two GORGEOUS dogs. Staff are lovely (FYI they speak very limited English). Wifi is good. I definitely recommend a 4 bed dorm or private as the 10bed is cramped. Area is safe so long as you keep an eye out and don't go walking alone at night. 24hr reception was great.

After 3 months in SA, this was the worst hostel yet. The private room was so tiny we hardly had space for our bags on the ground. Half way through the night the bed broke in the middle, we kept rolling into each other and didn't sleep. The staff couldn't speak English so we couldn't explain why we didn't want to stay a second night. They put us on the phone with the owner, who said 'Darling, if you don't want to pay a second night, we'll just charge your credit card, welcome to Columbia'

Aside from the beds we slept in, the bathroom shower flooded every time and there weren't enough bathrooms for all the occupants. the front bedroom was NOISY...the staff didn't even bother to whisper when answering the door. clearly the other comments mention the noise level, but they aren't working on that. you hear everything if you stay near the front. its small and staff were 'semi' helpful... (vivian??was bubbly and nice to interact with!:)). stay a few doors down at Anandamayi Hostel!

When we arrived, the hostess did not smile and the hostel was very disorderly and not welcoming or clean place to walk in. The website is TOTALLY misleading in how the hostel looks!!! he hostess played rap and reggaeton music very loudly until night time. The next day it was better and the hostess was cheerful and kind, but the first impression was not good. Also we had mistakenly thought there were private bathrooms. It just didn't end up being a good fit for what we were expecting.

Staying at Alegria's Hostel was nothing short of an awesome experience. Alegria makes you feel like you are at home, and offers travel tips, and ginger tea when you're sick (as I was). There are two big, sweet, gentle dogs, which adds to the feeling of security that the heavy, locked front door provides. The place is absolutely charming, comfortable and safe. The staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. I'm staying again when I return to Bogota in two weeks after traveling a bit.

The place has a perfect location. The neighborhood is good for those who want visit some museums, eat good and cheap food, walk around and feel the young people that moves the culture of bogota. But the staff knows almost no English and nothing about what it's nice to do around. The house is beautiful but it seems to be a little bit abandoned. My room had a terrible smell of humidity and no hot water on the two days. Poor breakfast also! Got potential but needs more attention!

I would give this place 3 out of 5. Not enough electric sockets available, especially not in the dorms area and you need to pay 5,000 COP for renting a towel if you're staying in the dorm. No places to hang your clothes in the not so great nor cleaned shower. Small lockers are around the lobby. None for the equipment. The staff are great and the location is fanatic. As I've, I would give this place 3 out of 5.

Really sociable hostel run by a tireless two locals who strive to ensure everyone has a superb stay. Couldn't have been more generous, feels like a communal home.

10 bed dorm is a bit cramped and 3 bathrooms not enough for whole hostel. Good location in Candeleria and friendly staff.

The staff are super friendly, limited English though, but enough friendly Spanish speakers pass through to lend a hand. The two best dogs you could ask for, and great hot water showers.

I absolutely love this hostel. Two friends and i stayed here for the better part of two weeks. We stayed for a week, left for ten days and came back for another weeo and alegria let us leave our bags in storage for ten days! The staff is perfect. Viviana and alegria are the best. I could go on and on. The hostel is like a quaint intimate home, a short walk from the main piece of the candelaria. The kitchen is the best, they have tons of utencils and a decent breakfast in the morning. Stay here!
