“Very well located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Well located - few blocks from the port , and few blocks from the older city. An amazing view - you can see the other side of the River, and the lights of Buenos Aires. Excelent rooms with Tv and Air Conditionar , very good breakfast and wonderful crew :) Recommended.

This hostel (posada) has a very good quality-price value. Everything is very clean. The breakfast is good (pastries, etc) compared to many hostels. The only downside that I can think of is the computer is very slow (but the wifi connecion is ok if you have yours).

I LOVED this place and am so glad I stayed here! From the second I walked in I felt at home. The entire “hostel” was super clean and airy, quiet, with great views and an easy walk from the bus station and basically everywhere else (only one block to the old town). Supreme location! The showers were fabulous -- and HOT! And the free shampoo and conditioner was a lovely little touch. There's a lockable safe in every room... the breakfast was basic (cereal, bread, pastries, jam, yoghurt, tea and coffee) but plentiful. Pay in cash and you get a 5% discount. The girls at the front desk were SO very helpful -- they didn't speak much English and I don't speak much Spanish, but we managed and they were very patient with me :-)

Room Tip: I stayed in the very top double room (#14, I think?) -- fabulous view, super quiet. Loved it and wou...

Our stay was fine overall. The lady in the morning didn't speak English which makes it hard to ask or organise anything. Loud construction at 8 am in the morning we were not warned about. Very nice room and good location. Staff were friendly. I would recommend this place.

There are two El Viajero properties in Colonia, this one Posada and the Hostel. This is the nicer of the two, though still feels like a hostel, just a nice one. We had a double room with an ensuite bathroom. The room and bathroom were very clean and the hot shower felt great after a full day of being rained on!

The staff is very friendly and will help organize what you want to do. Word to the wise, make sure that you have a valid drivers license to be able to rent a golf cart to see Colonia.

The location of the hostel is great as well. Very close to the historic center, and only about 4 blocks from the bus station and port (for the ferry to Buenos Aires).

Room Tip: The double room was on the ground level pointing out to an open terrace space. There weren't man...

Only 5 minutes walk from the ferry, and 5 minutes walk from the old town, makes the location of this little hotel very convenient.
Room is simple and clean. Reception area attended by friendly staff.
We were travelling with a 2 year old daughter. Staff was very friendly towards all of us.

I found the room very cosy, decorated in "rustic" style. The hostel is very well located (5 min walking from the beautiful city center). I can only complain about the shower - the water changes pressure and goes from hot to cold, and about the breakfast - it could be better, with fresh fruits and a better cheese. Wi-Fi wasn't too good too, but I'm not sure about what internet connection would I expect in the small city of Colonia. But once in the room, I felt like I could stay there for many more days - I'd go back to this hostel!. Ratio quality price is great, and comparing with other hostels around, I found it very good.
