We came there late but got a double-room. Room is clean with 3 beds in there. The hostel is charming and have a usable courtyard and a kitchen. Very tranquillo place for hanging around and you are right in the center of Colonia. Right next to the hostel is a 24/7 shop for beverages and stuff. Breakfast is uruguayan standard... More

We stayed here for just one night. The rooms are old but full of character. The bed was really comfy and it was very quiet. The breakfast was basic but nice and the staff were really helpful. The Internet connection was excellent...we even managed to watch a match online which was brilliant!

The bathrooms were grimy with a mouldy shower curtain. There was absolutely no atmosphere at all. The breakfast was a joke - White bread and butter and the bed was saggy and uncomfortable. The wifi was great though.

The hostel it's nothing special, although the shared rooms are big enough that you can open your backpack/suitcase. I didn't like the bathrooms, downstairs there are only two of them and I don't think it's enough, moreover they look old and not 100% safe, also the common room looks old and not clean. They have a good patio.

The place is located at the Main Street of colonia. Hostel is very cozy and has a tender atmosphere. Everything is clean. Staff are nice. They have bikes for free, so you can ride one of them and do a city tour very quickly, without renting those small and expensive cars!

We didn't stay there, but they stored our bags there for a day while exploring the city and were very friendly. The patio also seemed very nice and there was free coffee, so I guess recommended. Thanks

I stayed one week in this hostel and it was very nice. I shared the room with two others and the room was big enough for the backpacks. The badroom was clean and the kitchen was nice to cook. The location is perfect, you can walk everything and Colonia is beautiful and peaceful. Perfect place to relax. The workers are... More

The place is lovely, the rooms are cute and each one is different from the other. The people are lovely and totaly helpful. The bathrooms are several bathrooms and although I see people complain, I stayed there twice and never had problems looking for an empty one. There was always a lot of free ones. Also the water deal, that... More

My family of 5 stayed 2 nights at the Hostel. Very simple and friendly staff. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were stocked. They had a kitchen and let us build a fire in the fireplace during the cold evening make our time very enjoyable. The other hostels in town did not accept children under 18 so this place... More

We stayed here for 1 night, in a double room. Pros.... Good location, 5 min walk from the lighthouse and close to restaurants etc; Comfortable, clean, helpful staff and priced fairly. The common area was also spacious. Average... WiFi access was intermittent and the breakfast was average. Bad.... Nothing was bad - I would recommend this place.
