Favourite hostel in Colombia. Staff are really friendly and attempt to speak English. Rooms are extremely nice. Top bunk can be a bit of a death trap, but other than that perfect hostel.

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.

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.

5 minutes walk from the center and boliviar squer, right next to a nice bakery and minimarket. Wifi is really good- and you get the signal in the rooms too. 2 computers for the guest's use. Hot showers, kitchen, great staff, nice yard to sit and rellax. Small and friendly, great place to meet other travellers. I will definitelly go back there when i'll return to Bogota.

Helpful, friendly staff, good location, there is also a kitchen. There were only a few very small lockers in the hostel, suitable for valuables only, and all were used by other guests :( One of the two showers doesn't even have a head, it's just a pipe coming out of the wall. Atmosphere was okay, and they organise some activities. Go to the tejo evening if you can!
