El viajero is well located, close to the old town. The room was more comfortable than many other hostels but it was quite bright in the night due to the windows in the doors. The bathroom was a bit messy with a small leak and there are no hooks to hang up your clothes. All and all it was a... More

We spent 2 nights in Colonia in El Viajero, the hostel is in a central location to the sights of Colonia and a fairly easy 10-15 minute walk to the ferry/bus terminals. We had 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm which were comfortable and had a good shared bathroom. The best feature of this hostel is that it has... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night before heading to Montevideo. Staff were very helpful and the social area had good vibes, ideal for friends / solo travellers. They also have a kitchen for use which we didn't take advantage of but others were cooking dinner. We had a good recommendation from the staff for a well-priced local... More

The excellent staff made this place awesome. Nothing was too much trouble. As soon as you walk in there is a good vibe. An open fire and tv made the common room very comfortable. The wifi and computers were great. I would recommend this hostel

My friends and I had a great experience at El Viajero in Colonia. There are many hostels to pick from in this town, and I'm glad we decided on this one. Having arrived to Colonia cold and wet from the rain, we were welcomed to El Viajero with a warm fire and a television playing Saturday morning cartoons. The seating... More

Me and my girlfriend stopped for a night in the dorm, although the shower was very small everything else was sound. A great place to visit for the day. Staff are helpfull and the breakfast was decent too

I stayed here for a night and it was just ok. Friendly staff and welcoming. The room was a bit smelly, but everything was clean enough. They provide linen for the bed and rent towels. The location is very central. The main street is around the corner and it's only less than 10 minutes to walk to the historic center.... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend in one of their double privates. Couldn't fault the room with comfy bed and great security. Hot water and shower is actually seperated from the rest of the bathroom (a rare luxury in South America it seems!). Can't comment on the dorms but given the rest of the hostel i would assume they are fine.... More

Stayed there in February (in Room 10, I want to say) and it's possible that they have exterminated since then, but there were bed bugs! When I told the front desk, they said it happens. And then I had to ask to use their washer/dryer to clean all of my clothes. Just check the seams of your bed to make... More
