Thank you Sergio, Gabriel, and Manu for making me feel at home, I know that is cliche, but you guys nailed it! Sergio cooked up an asado in the wood fireplace that really set the mood, re uruguayo! I didn't want to leave and will be back in a week! Don't forget to walk down a block to the river... More

This hostel is ok. The dorms are plain and the beds could do with an update. The showers were irratic but warm overall. The kitchen is large and well equipped. The communal lounge is ok but the TV is always on so it makes socialising hard. There looked like a nice outside area but we went in winter so obviously... More

Overall we enjoyed this hostel. Things we didn't like was that the lock on the door to our room didn't work...you could jiggle the handle and it would unlock the door so that was a negative. But the staff and other guests were nice, the price reasonable and the water in the showers was hot!

Super friendly guys running this place (see photo). Hostel is in coolly designed, 70's style, retro house. Some of the dorm rooms are better than others (6 bed room is tops). Laid back rooftop patio is great for meeting fellow travelers (but way too many people smoking up there - gross). Overall a fave. Above average brekkie too. (Just avoid... More

O.K hands down one of the best place we have been to. Staff is SO nice young vivid laughing, good music, tons of food, we cooked Israeli food and they made Uruguay cusins. The bath and showers are clean the rooms are big with lockers, and upstairs there is a great terrazas with hammoks and just a chill vibe. If... More

Honestly this hostel leaves me with not much to write home about. It wasn't amazing but it wasn't bad at all. The lady who greeted us was friendly and the other guested seemed relaxed in her presence. The room we stayed in was in my opinion horrible. We had a twin room which was bunk beds in a tiny tiny...

I stayed here for three nights, and overall I have no real complaints about the place. When one considers the price/value, location, etc. it really is not bad at all. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming (honestly that was the best part of my stay here), and went out of their way to make sure that I was comfortable.... More

Colonia is only a small town, but nonetheless, Sur Hostel was very conveniently located, being close to the main shopping strip, and only a short walk to the beach, the old town and the bus/ferry terminal. The room had heating which made it very comfortable. The twin bunk beds had no safety rail or access ladder, so the top mattresses... More

A hostel with welcoming staff, a nice open hearth and a big kitchen for guests to use. There is a slooow computer and okay wifi. Hostel was clean, our bed was comfy. Location is good, but Colonia is very small so everything is close to the historic centre here. You have to put the linnen on the bed yourself, and... More

Excellent location in Colonia and helpful and welcoming staff at hostel. You can find restaurants, groceries, banks some blocks away and you can rent a bike at hostel or in some places that rent bicycles by the hour. Cycling around Colonia was an amazing experience! It's beautiful riding though the coastline. The hostel offers a great breakfast and the staff... More
