Really enjoyed Alegria's! Loved the aesthetics of the place. The hosts/staff were so great -- gracious, welcoming and helpful. Easy walking access to the rest of La Candelaria. Good facilities. I'd definitely stay there again if I visit Bogota another time. Highly recommended for the price, location and staff!

Had a great stay at Alegria. Staff were super friendly (though come prepared with some Spanish knowledge) and our private room was lovely. The hostel has a cool laid back vibe. Was perfect for us though I wouldn't recommend if you are looking for a straight up party hostel. Only small issue was having to wait for bathrooms, as there were only three in the place. Great outdoor courtyard and full, clean kitchen for cooking. Overall awesome and would stay again!

We really had a great time in Alegria's. The hostel has a really good vibe and we met a lot of nice people. Facilities are not excellent, but the vibe and location makes up for it. We will go there again before we fly back home.

O que compensa é a harmonia do lugar. É tudo pequeno e arrumado. Simples e com uma hospitalidade ótima. Qualquer problema é resolvido de forma prática e o espaço de convivência é acolhedor . Fiquei hospedada no hostel por praticamente uma semana e já sinto saudades do pessoal e do lugar.

I had a great stay at Alegria. The two ladies who run the hostel are absolutely so warm, lovely and super helpful. The dorm is comfortable, small lockers to use at reception, two bathrooms and really cool antique style decor. I also would really recommend that you do the bike city tour!

Really disappointing experience. The photos of the hostel were nothing like what it actually looked like. We booked a private, which was said to include a private bathroom. When we got there, even the staff said "Sorry this was the last room available". Why even advertise it if you have to say that to us? Did not have the private bathroom, was in really run down condition, very disappointing experience. We ended up canceling a night early just to go to another hostel and get away.

we booked this hostel in advance, knowing we would arrive late into Bogota. however, once we arrived at the hostel at 1 a.m we were informed our reservation had been given away and the hostel was full. The person running the desk helped find us a hostel, but it was not a good one and we had to walk around Bogota with our bags early in the morning.

The hostel is pretty simple, nothing fancy, but the staff is always joyful, beds are okay, they serve a simple but nice breakfast of juice, coffee, fruit, bread and butter. Hammocks to chill, a few tables and chairs on the central patio so people can mingle. Hot water and nice shower. Not too far from the city's center, major museums (Botero, Gold, Gabo, etc.) and plenty of good places to eat around too. 10-minute walk from a major bus terminal with easy access to all of the city. Very quiet.

We got good security information, staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately the bathroom was not very clean.

Pretty decent place to stay. It's located in the Candeleria district with easy access to the main sights in Bogota. A few blocks north of the Hostel is a cool little quarter with a number of interesting restaurants and hang-outs.

Very accommodating and friendly staff! Appreciate how hard they work;-) Just a thought...It is so chilly in Bogota; It would be great if you had a couple of outdoor heaters/fireplaces since both courtyards are the only common areas for people to sit.

Great hostel very communal and good for making close widths with hour being too big. Very cute dogs. Could be cleaner and more organised but otherwise great stay
