Great location. Standard, but good breakfast. Nice common areas - two terraces and eating/living area. Wifi was good, but ooccasionally dropped. Staff were friendly. Big lockers under the beds. No laundry service, but there's a laundry around the corner.

Arriving from BA we strolled the short distance through the quiet leafy streets to El Viajero. The hostel is not cheap but considering the good recommendations from other backpackers and lonely Planet gurus alike we decided to stay. And also because we had left a nite club in BA at 6am, grabbed our backpacks and headed for Uruguay so we... More

Colonia is a charming city and the Hostel is totally in harmony with that. Is a simple place with a good vibe. The service is very nice,they have bike to rent and we see bagpackers from everywhere. The rooms are clean, with air conditioner, I stayed with more 5 persons and was great.

A hostel where you feel pretty nice, the kitchen is okay, bathrooms is the rooms are nice but it's important to notice that some people had some bedbugs in their bed... And if when you go to a hostel you can't sleep well without being afraid of something... there is no point to go to a hostel!

We really liked this hostel when we arrived, they were welcoming and we'll set up. However, we were staying in a dorm room, when my boyfriend woke up at 3am feeling very itchy. He had over 60 bites and found several bed bugs. The guy on night shift was great, helpful and apologetic. He put us both in a double... More

I stayed two nights there and really liked it. My dorm had private bathroom and airco. Friendly staff, good breakfast and nice common area. Location is perfect, in old town and few minutes away from groceries, restaurants and highlights. It's not cheap but prices in Uruguay are higher than Argentina so get ready. Don't miss the sunset in Colonia!

Attractive hostel. Clean, air conditioned room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Located within easy walking distance to ferry and bus station, as well as old town. Although it is very close to the tourist heavy old town area, it is in an area where you won't be bothered by tourists. Impressed with the number of premium channels provided on TV.

I really loved this hostel - it was in a very beautiful house, kept clean and had a nice communal area with TV, bar etc. It was also very close to the old town and a lot of restaurants. The staff were friendly, well informed and helpful. A few cons were the bathroom in the dorm I was in was... More

El Viajero is not cheap, and also bed bucks in room 4...also the guy with black curls was not that nice. They didn´t anything to remove the bed bucks, so check it out before you are going to sleep! The location, breakfast is good! The town is really nice, good vibe!

El Viajero is not cheap. If you want to share a room with two other people, you will be paying around 30-40$ per person. The more people in your room the less you will have to pay. They do accept credit cards. The location of the Hostel is very good for it is right next to the Ciudad Vieja and... More
