I stayed here with a group of friends and it was one of the best hostels I have stayed in in South America so far. It was reasonably priced, comfortable enough, several good places to chill (rooftop terrace, downstairs bar with tv, outside terrace) and great staff. The highlight was the asado : for not a lot of money we... More

I was just in town for the weekend to renew my Argentina visa, get some US dollars, and get out of the city for a little while. This was a great place to hang out and just sit, drink, and talk. The staff especially were super friendly. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in town!

I stayed one night with runners from the Uruguay Hash House Harriers in room 4. Two days later i developed a rash all over both arms. I realisedI had been bitten to death by bed bugs. The place was cheap and the company was great,but I really wouldnt recommend anyone to stay here, ever!

I stayed one night in El Viajero with my boyfriend. It was double bed room, so it could be different what you will experience or experienced. It was quite nice for everything I think. Price, location, breakfast, service, clean, equipment and etc. We rented a bike and used kitchen for our dinner, sat on the roof lounge while eating. As... More

We both loved our stay!!! Colonia is a great place to visit and El Viajero is a fair stay. We had a double room which was good. Mosquito sensitive people should bring their spray though as there is no screens on the windows… ;-) The atmosphere is great. Supermarket is just around the corner. If you use an ATM anywhere...

It rained the whole time we were in Colonia so we spent a fair bit of the day and night in this hostel. This was unfortunate. The dorm room was extremely dark, although it was roomy and had comfortable beds. The kitchen was tiny with not much bench space. The roof leaked leaving puddles all over the floor. There was...

Great location and good and clean rooms. Staff is great and atmosphere of the hostel is incredible. The hostel is one block away from Colonia's main avenue and 7 blocks from Colonia's port. Walking distance from the main attractions, including the Old City.

Myself and my girlfriend stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The beds were comfy but the room was small. The hostel is kept very clean and there is lockers in the bedrooms. Breakfast is served every morning and is basic but good!! The hostel had a BBQ one night and it wears very good and reasonable.

Stayed at El Viajero in the sleep seaside town of Colonia del Sacramento. The staff were really helpful and friendly, staying up with us to play cards into the early hours. Met lots of great people here, the hostel was clean and spatious and I would definitely recommend it.

We stayed in El Viajero for two nights and made the most of their central location. The hostel was clean, the rooms were big just a bit on the dark side. The showers were hot and powerful. The kitchen was basic and breakfast was standard South American hostel breakfast. The internet was ridiculous though. Painstakingly slow and you had to... More
