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

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

After calling a repairman they could fix that... More

This B&B is close to everything in Colonia. Comfortable bed, quiet, close to the harbour and old town. The staff try to make you at home. OK breakfast with coffee, tea, milk, cocoa, toast, ceral, fruit, marmalade, and juice. A very good wi-fi also in the room.
