A warm welcome and frequent help from the staff offered. A nice location if you wish to stay in La Candelaria area of Bogota.


Very calm and relaxed hostel. Staff only speaks Spanish but were very helpfull. Clean kitchen and bathroom and good beds. Only point of attention was that the shower wasn't very hot.

Great staff, great recommendations. Alegria was a lot of fun.


Excellent staff, very friendly and welcoming. Considering how many people come in and out every day, these people welcome you like youve known them for years.

This was an amazing hostel, good Wi-Fi, but no-one is looking at their phone. Everyone socialized in a quiet but fun environment, lots of return guests. You really need to do the cooking class, learning the local food. Algeria and all of her staff are amazing, they keep the place very secure, but still welcoming. This was a great place to stay in Bogota!

Had an absolutely fantastic time at Alegria`s Hostel. Really friendly, helpful and laidback staff set in a really atmospheric buidling makes this place a must in Bogota. I have very fond memories of reading in the hommock in the beautiful courtyard.

Alegria is a good choice in general. However if you don't like dogs, go elsewhere. There are lockers to store your things for safekeeping, but you need you own lock. Many hostels in Colombia require that you provide your own anyhow. The breakfast includes coffee, fresh fruit, rolls and fresh juice. It is best to get up not too late or else you will miss the meal. The staff are really welcoming and will help you any way they can. The kitchen is well stocked and the fridge has space for your food.


A bit disappointing comparing to the rate on hostelworld. Didnt feel the chill vibe previous reviews mentioned. Its not clean. Doghair everywhere and dirty bathroom floor and walls too. 2 bathrooms are not enough in the morning and evening. Breakfast consists of croissants, fruit and coffee if there was still some left. No marmelade at all. Location is great though and beds soft and comfy.


Excellent locations, very clean- they clean the toilets a few times a day! Great wifi, computers avilable for the guests. The hostal offer laundry service and a really nice cooking lesson! Staff are amazing and nice! Allways smile and happy to help with everything! Quite and friendly- great place to meet others travellers!


The staff was very helpful and friendly. Also, there was free coffee, juice and "unlimited" bread for breakfast. The location is in La Candelaria, which is a tourist place during the day but becomes a little dodgy at night. There are 2 dogs and it was smelling a little (cold, wet dog). Also, the comforters were dirty and didn't have sheets! No free towels as well. And only 2 showers that will get busy in the mornings.
