I bought some soil as I bought my bonsai plant a few months back. Now I have an Aloe Vera that I need to repot, will the soil I have for bonsai (I don't know what type of soil it is) be ok to use with the Aloe?

I keep these plants indoors

Any plant can be used for bonsai. What does the bag say is in it?

If the soil was for bonsai, it will do for an Aloe. When I plant my bonsai, I always use cactus soil. But if you live in an area where bonsai soil is what is available, use it.
