I loved staying at Alegria's Hostel. I was very happy to have chosen this hostel. Viviana and Dana are really nice people and I am happy I met them, they maintain the hostel as few people can do it when they are staff. William and the other guy from the night shift are also nice. The dogs are lovely and the place itself is quite charming. I just didn't get the chance to meet the famous Alegria (the hostel owner).

It's a very rustic and adorable layout. The staff was very helpful about directions and recommendations etc. we spoke spanish so had a much easier time asking for help. The place is nice and clean. The one struggle was being located at the top of a decently steep hill. My friend had never stayed in a hostel before and she loved it.

Bien, la atención fue buena, solo que el desayuno es para quien llega primero...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hola, Lamento mucho tu mala experiencia con el desayuno, tenemos horarios de 8 a 9 para promover que todos se sienten a la misma hora a compartir y se integren, pero yo soy la propietaria, viajera por profesion y muy mala para levantarme temprano, asi que nuestra politica es que desde las 6 de la mañana encuentras disponible tu desayuno si asi lo pides en reception o si te levantas con resaca a las 11 tambien. Gracias por tu comentario, verificare que paso con tu caso particular. Gracias.

This is an nice hostel with a good vibe and excellent location in La Candelaria. Room are ok but with a smell of humidity. Good showers and wifi. Two out of three staff members are excellent, really friendly and helpful. The third guy however didn't seem to know much about the operation of the hostel. Also he was very drunk while working the night shift alone. He left the premises between 11 pm and 1.30 pm leaving two hostel visitors to guard and open the door (he told them he'd be back 1 h)

Estuve aquí una noche nomas pero me impresionó el hostel con character único y Vivíana que nunca paro de correr a un lado a otro manteniendo este hostel! Hasta tuvo tiempo de enseñar una extranjera un poco de pasos a una canción que toco! William era muy ayudante en lo que uno le pedía, ya sea direcion, consejo, o acompañando a u o a esperar su taxi por la noche! Saludos de Medellin :)

There are too few bathrooms and the breakfast is very light (just coffee, croissants and butter). The hostel is also on a hill but it's good exercise. On the plus side they provide plenty of blankets!

Very old location. Had a lot of fungi in our room. Hostel for 1 or 2 nights ok, wouldn't stay longer there.

O hostel é pequeno, as portas dos quartos coletivos são abertos, o que reduz um pouco a segurança, a localidade para quem quer conhecer o centro histórico (Candelária) é muito bom, mesmo ficando perto de uma região um pouco esquisita a noite, quem quer aproveitar a noite fica um pouco distante. A higiene não é 100%, mas também não é ruim. O problema é apenas 2 banheiros para todos os quartos coletivos, e que podem ser facilmente abertos mesmo com alguém dentro (e trancado a porta).

Gute Lage, hilfsbereites Personal. Schönes Ambiente. Matratzen der Betten sind durchgelegen. Das ist der einzige kleine negative Punkt.

Excelente hostel! Sólo algunos detalles: en la habitación de 10 tal vez hay un exceso de camas, y sería bueno que hubiera un baño más... Por lo demás, muy bueno todo, sobre todo la atención, ubicación, seguridad y limpieza.

Good hostel and good facilities except for: - there only seems to be 2 toilets in the whole hostel. Clearly not enough for about 30people - wifi doesn't reach all rooms - it took about 20min to check in, mainly because the lady had to keep walking 20m to open the door everytime, they should invest in a camera and electronic door opening!
