This hostel was full of fun, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Hostel was decorated so nice and our room view was amazing, you can see all Bogota from the window. The owner- Alegria was the nicest person i have ever met. She was very helpful for everything. There were lots of books that you can organize your south...

Stayed in Alegria's for two nights. Checked the ratings prior to booking and it seemed like a good spot. At the check-in I should have realized that this place is odd. The owner greeted us with some very uncomfortable comments, she should realized that not everyone shares her views on specific social issues and leave those out running her business....

This hostel was ok. Nothing special. It was fairly clean, the breakfast was ok, and it was a good place to meet other travels. They were unorganized, however, when it came to accommodating people. We made online reservations and they didn't even know we were coming. We also saw this happen to other people. The staff was pretty helpful.

Sadly we were very disappointed with this hostel. After reading all the great reviews we had hight hopes of a friendly, welcoming hostel. This was not the case, there was no welcome and no apparent evidence of our booking despite showing staff our hostel bookers receipt. After being left in the lobby for nearly an hour we were shown to...

We stayed for 2 nights in Alegrias Hostel. We arrived in the morning and she gave us the room. All was really clean and nice decorated. There was also a nice room with some couches and a TV. The Wifi was perfect and the hot shower rocked! (It's really cold in Bogota...) The staff was also really friendly and helpful....

We spoke little Spanish, but after three nights, we had a good basic Spanish grasp! Alegria was so helpful, friendly and put a great start to our two month trip to South America! Breakfast was perfect for us, the main shower was just what you need once you check in! Free wifi is a major benefit, and came in such...

This is a great hostel not far from the main plaza and in walking distance of Libertador Simon Bolivars house and the cable car ride to the top of the hill overlooking the city.

good value for money, staff are really helpful, activities advertised, facilities are well kept and clean, beds are comfy, love the dogs company makes it more homely only drawback, the hostel is not insulated in fact the roofs are not connected to the building so it is as cold inside the hostel as it is outside which unfortunately for most...

Great location and friendly staff. Double room cost COP55,000 and breakfast was included (not huge but still nice). Large kitchen, nice communal area and good place to meet other travellers. They had initially double-booked our room but then sorted it out pretty quickly so were happy with the outcome.
