We arrived, asked for 4-bed-dorms (doubles were full), paid and when we arrived in the room, it was a 6-bed dorm. When we went back to the counter, she said, yes, 4-bed dorms are full.. Frustrating!! (I even asked in Spanish!) The wall where the bed stood against was so dirty, someone puked against it. Found out the next morning... More

This is the best wifi in South America! The hostel and rooms are super cute and charming, but, the staff have a bunch of kids that are REALLY noisy and scream-y at night and their cartoons were turned on at 6am at a ridiculously loud volume. Also, the bathrooms are very dirty and there's no soap in any of the... More

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms and the bathrooms are old but clean. Try to have no room over the common room! Because of the fireplace beneath, this rooms smell like cold ash. The stuff was friendly and the jard inside pretty nice, also the common room. But the bad thing in this hostel is the kitchen. I... More

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
