I had a fantastic time at this hostel. I was traveling alone, but the other people at the hostel were super friendly, as were the owners, Monica and Miguel. It's a truly fantastic place to relax. I rode horses, hung out in the sauna, chilled in the sun and read my book, and enjoyed the scenery. Hostel has a lot... More

My wife and I arrived at the farm after being picked up by Miguel. We received a warm welcome, settled into our clean and comfy double bed room and proceeded to relax. The atmosphere at the farm exceeded our expectations plus 2pak the dog and Lucifer the kitten helped keep us company and amused through out our stay. Monica and... More

I spent the most wonderful and cosy day in this hostel. It is clean, it is cheap, it is more than well taken care of. It's well worth its money. And I must say I loved the owners, they make the place what it is. Miguel and Monica are something between your parents and your friends, easy to talk to... More

I enjoyed my three nights at El Galope. I was looking to escape the urban madness of Buenos Aires for a little while and El Galope fit that description very well. I got lucky and was there in the off season (end of April) so I had a two bed dorm room all to myself. Monica lit the fire every... More

We had a fabulous time at this lovely estancia. Monica and Miguel made us feel so welcome. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the countryside or visit Colonia del Sacramento for the day.

We stayed here for two nights, originally just planning to stay one, as it was such a relaxing, beautiful place. Miguel and Monica are lovely and interesting people who really take care of you.

My gf and I were on a four week trip around Argentina/Uruguay/Brazil, and El Galope was definitely one of the highlights of our trip, even though we only spent one night there (which we really regretted immediately after arriving). We were looking for a place to relax and ride horses to get the "estancia" feeling, and though El Galope may... More

My girlfriend and I only had a few days in Uruguay and really wanted to have a farm stay and ride horses. Originally we considered heading north in to gaucho country but it would have taken away from our ability to see some other attractions along the coast. That's when we found El Galope. We could not have had a... More
