It a design, clean and colorful hostel... the reception employees were helpful and nice... the dorm was luminious with enough space for each traveler... the breakfast which was included was also good... it is not a partying hostel and this point makes the difference with some others places I stayed during my worldtrip...

Great location, very close to old town, and a doable walk from the ferry terminal, was very clean and modern, great beds. More like a hotel with kitchen facilities. Breakfast adequate, mainly toast, not very varied but only there for short stay so didn't matter. Would stay there again.

This hostel is probably the most modern and cleanest hostel I've stayed in so far on my South American trip, it's more like a hotel and looks like a cafe or something downstairs. There's seating out the front, as well as a garden with seats and a kitchen out the back. The hostel is clean and the beds are nice,... More

This is a recently renovated building and therefore very good facilities, it haa great common areas inside and out, kitchen is good with a big BBQ for your asado. The rooms and whole hostel are clean, airconditioning in rooms and as an added bonus you get a towel, which in my opinion is above and beyond for a hostel. A... More

When we arrived we found out that although we did booking for too people in one dorm we were made to stay in two different rooms. Whenever we are using booking.com there is always information if there is just one space in the room we are booking. It was a massive downfall to this great place. Ladies at the reception... More

Del Rio is possibly the most well-designed hostel I've ever encountered. It's in a new building and seemed purpose-built to be a hostel. There are several dorms on the second floor along with a gigantic shared bathroom that's really the last word in hostel bathrooms. Spacious, excellent showers that had a private dressing space, and lots of hot water! Couldn't... More

Stayed here for 2 impromptu nights in a 6 bed dorm. Del rio was an excellent stay. Modern design, very clean, spacious dorm. Excellent security. Had good kitchen at rear of property and sun trap of a garden. Great location to explore a beautiful town. We will be back!

You won't find a hostel better located than this one. I walked around the old part of the city and I didn't see any other hostel. I stayed in the 6 beds female dorm, it was a little bit small, no space to hang out inside the room other than your bed. Other than that the beds are comfortable and... More

I only stayed here one night with a friend, but enjoyed our stay. The hostel is in a great location (to be honest, everywhere in Colonia is a good location as it's so small!), the rooms were clean and bright (love the yellow blankets!). I've never had to make a bed myself before in a hostel, but they were comfortable... More

Before coming to this place, we looked around Hostel Colonial that everybody goes, but that place looked horrible, not clean with 300 pesos, so we had to look for other place and found here. We stayed 2 nights here and I cannot understand the critics of other users said below. This place is far away better than the other one,... More
