“Fantastic Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Stayed for one night and in our 1.5 years of travelling this was the best nights sleep we had! Great location and close to everything! Staff were very friendly and gave us good advice on where to go. I would stay here again on our next visit.

Nice place with upper sunny terace and helpful stuff just a few steps from the busiest street (so it is not noisy) and just next to the historic core of Colonia, in the time of my visit calm enough to get a good sleep even on the 8 beds dorm.

Colonia is a really small sweet city, so for me one night there was perfect. The staff of el viajero hostel was really nice. The place is well decorated and important: a good breakfast! It is also great that you can book easily another viajero hostel (I also went to the one in Montevideo) and that they can arrange ticket for you.

We stayed round the corner from this hostel in their b&b but actually didn't realise there was two until i looked on here! The place was nice and breakfast good and the staff helpful but when we came to pay they tried to charge us double what we had agreed. Luckily i had the confirmation on email and the lady was great and said not to worry, so its a nice place but just make sure you confirm the price.

El Viajero is pretty much a typical hostel. I stayed in a dorm room for four, which was clean and which had a private bathroom. Breakfast was a bit above par -- they had cereal, yogurt, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, bread and every kind of spread around -- and the hostel staff cooked a pizza dinner for us that wasn't too expensive.
Overall, a good stay.

Great location, amazing staff and good accommodation!! IMy boyfriend and I had a very good experience there! One bad thing is that we have a specific time to do the check in (from 2 pm). We arrived before that, so we left the luggage in the storage area and walked around the city until this time. But as the hostel is nearby the downtown we didnt have problems at all! Private rooms are good enough and confortable but I can not describe the other ones! We can recommend it for sure.
