The hostel has a great location within easy walking distance to both the ferry port and the old city. The rooms are variable, from quite nice to small and a bit dingy. Staff was friendly and helpful and rudimentary English as spoken. It seems that the inn is frequented mainly by groups of young travellers on day trips from Brazil... More

Well located - few blocks from the port , and few blocks from the older city. An amazing view - you can see the other side of the River, and the lights of Buenos Aires. Excelent rooms with Tv and Air Conditionar , very good breakfast and wonderful crew :) Recommended.

This hostel (posada) has a very good quality-price value. Everything is very clean. The breakfast is good (pastries, etc) compared to many hostels. The only downside that I can think of is the computer is very slow (but the wifi connecion is ok if you have yours).

I LOVED this place and am so glad I stayed here! From the second I walked in I felt at home. The entire “hostel” was super clean and airy, quiet, with great views and an easy walk from the bus station and basically everywhere else (only one block to the old town). Supreme location! The showers were fabulous -- and... More

Our stay was fine overall. The lady in the morning didn't speak English which makes it hard to ask or organise anything. Loud construction at 8 am in the morning we were not warned about. Very nice room and good location. Staff were friendly. I would recommend this place.

There are two El Viajero properties in Colonia, this one Posada and the Hostel. This is the nicer of the two, though still feels like a hostel, just a nice one. We had a double room with an ensuite bathroom. The room and bathroom were very clean and the hot shower felt great after a full day of being rained... More

Only 5 minutes walk from the ferry, and 5 minutes walk from the old town, makes the location of this little hotel very convenient. Room is simple and clean. Reception area attended by friendly staff. We were travelling with a 2 year old daughter. Staff was very friendly towards all of us.

I found the room very cosy, decorated in "rustic" style. The hostel is very well located (5 min walking from the beautiful city center). I can only complain about the shower - the water changes pressure and goes from hot to cold, and about the breakfast - it could be better, with fresh fruits and a better cheese. Wi-Fi wasn't... More

Clean and comfortable room. Hot water, and it worked! Heating, which was needed at the time. Friendly, helpful staff. Good location. Easy walk to restaurants and to old bastion. Cheap taxi ride to/from bus station - or walk.

This B&B is located within a very easy 5-10 min walk from the Colonia bus station and ferry. It is also easy walking distance to the attractions and sights of Colonia.
