You can also pick up a cheap product at the local home depot or value home center. Its called an EASY OUT. they come in a set of 3 or 4. You tap the correct size to fit the stripped allen location. This is not the type for DRILLING. the tip of the tool will NOT have a drill bit look to it.

If the allen is metric, see if an english size may still get some bite or Vice Versa if english. If you can find one close and gently tap into hole with hammer, grab with a vice grip or adjustable wrench, down as close to axle as possible. you may get it to pop free. something like these....
