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

Hostel is new, very clean and tidy. Comfortable to sleep in. Breakfast was very basic, but fit for purpose. Good location, on a back street so nice and quite - only a couple of minutes walk from the historic old town and main street with lots of shops and places to eat. Service was great, no english, but still very... More

I do not really understand the critics of other users. For us the hostel was very nice! At the check-in you get linen and even a towel for free, which is not common for South America or Uruguay! The staff is friendly and speaks spanish and english, so there is no need to misunderstand anything. The hostel seems to be... More

This place is just a very basic hostel. On check in, you are given you sheets and a towel, and told your room number. I don't speak Spanish, but understood the word 4, so took a stab that I was in room 4. The rooms are comfy enough, with a bed light for each bunk. I had a power point... More

Just a so-so hostel. It looked good when I first arrived, but I found over the six days I stayed there that much of its bathroom and dorm room hardware was flimsy and fell apart and just plain did not work. Toilets did not flush, faucets did not turn off, shower bolts fell off. There were no coffee cups or... More

I booked on line to stay in this hostel. On arrival I was greeted warmly by the reception staff. I was in a four share room. Upon entry to the room with a share with three teenage boys I discovered the room covered in their clothing and Wet gear and the associated odour. Two of the residents were present and... More
