The location of this hostel could not be better. We took the ferry from Buenos Aires and walked the 5 blocks from the port right to the hostel, which is one block from downtown Colonia. The hostel itself is pretty typical, with friendly staff, but can get a little loud at night. Definitely splurge a little more on a private... More

Good location, close to the river and the old city center. Staff is friendly but does not always provide basic touristic information (opening hours of the monuments, etc.), that's something they should improve. Breakfast is correct, some fruit would be nice thus. I stayed in the 6 bed dorm because I thought it would be more comfortable than the 8... More

The hostel was well situated close to old Colonia area. The hostel was clean and beds comfortable. Big bathroom in 4 bed dorm. They offer a bbq to join in which is nice because it facilitates meeting other guests and travelers. Except there wasn't much to eat. I found the staff not very helpful, asking a question felt like it... More

Internet connection is vey poor except in main areas but this is typical of most hostels in Uruguay. We did here from other travellers just before we arrived of Bed Bugs... More

We stayed here in November, the staff are very helpful and the location is brilliant for accessing all the local amenities, however we found the rooms to be very dated and sometimes unclean. We stayed in a four bed dorm in the outdoor area and found the cigarette smoke to be annoying due to the proximity of the rooms to... More

I stayed one day in El Viajero and I found it a nice quiet place to stay. Everything there was average, cleaningness was ok, breakfast ok and quality of sleep nice. Also the common area is pretty average. Nice place with a good price.

Two words, bed bugs. Just stayed here for two nights and room 4 still has bed bugs. I was wondering why we were the only ones staying in that 8-bed dorm when every other room was packed to the rafters. The receptionist mentioned that it had been sprayed the week before after I brought it to her attention (which made... More

If you are under 30 this is perhaps the only cool place to stay. Well located just blocks away from the city center. The place is great, aswome staff and great breakfast.At night people tend to drinlk on the block of the hostel which is cool becaouse it keeps the noise out of the hostel. Had a great sleep.
