Colonia is absolutely beautiful. After a few weeks travelling big cities it was so lovely to come here to a beautiful rustic seaside town. Sur hostel was great. Brilliant location, so easy to find on foot from bus or ferry port. Owners are new and a lovely family who make you feel welcome as soon as you get there and... More

Long story short: don't stay here. We were staying as a group for just a few days, and from the moment we walked in we knew this place was bad. They have drawings all over the walls and torn up furniture that looks like some college drop out's basement. No rules seemed to be enforced as other groups were allowed... More

Sur Hostel's owner, Douglas, and his staff, who are family members, are gracious hosts. A very friendly, supportive place. What a wonderful place to sit out front and watch strollers pass slowly by on a balmy evening in tranquil Colonia. Douglas is a kind and generous host. He went above and beyond to assure I received adequate medical assistance when... More

This hostel has a few things that many hostels do not have, which makes it stand out in my opinion -Fans in the rooms (important!!) -Black out shades - Wifi that reaches the dorms. It is a pretty threadbare hostel, but the staff are friendly and it serves its purpose. The best part about the hostel is the people are... More

I'm sure how to write this review because the staff here are very friendly but also made a few mistakes. We booked two beds in a mixed dorm and ended up getting separate dorms for our first night before being moved to a mixed dorm. We also paid on checking in but after we left got several emails from the... More

A very friendly (including a 420 friendly) place. The rooms are quite packed, that's just what hostels are. Price range from $16 to $20. It's a great place to meet other travelers.You can cook your own food, but sometims the kitchen gets crowded.

Well what an experience, the only good thing about this hostel is its location! I didn't enjoy my stay here at all. No linen until 11pm at night and when asked enormous times about it, it seemed they were upset/angry at us for asking, It didn't help that my partner was sick and needed rest! Our room looked and felt... More

Location ok for Main Street & bus station. On a side street so not so noisy. Hostel pretty empty and not a lot of food left at breakfast, but I was there right towards the end time. One guy who worked at the hostel spoke English, a lot of signs in Spanish only so I'm not sure if they get... More
