“Perfect location and very nice staff!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We traveled to Colonia del Sacramento in November from Buenos Aires. When we got off the ferry we realized it was only a short 5 minute walk from the ferry and about a 5 minute walk from historic center. The B and B is very clean and the front desk people were extremely friendly and very welcoming. We did have some issues with our room as far as plumbing and a broken safe but it really was not a big deal as they just changed our room and only took only a couple of minutes. It is inexpensive and and beds are much more comfortable than they appear. I would definitely stay there again.

It was very nice to stay with Posada El Viajero. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is very close to the old city center. Everything of importance is in walking distance. The street in front is a one way street with low noise level.

Room Tip: If you've got a room in the patio please kill the mosquitoes before falling asleep. That's t...

I originally booked at the El Viahero hostel. I showed up after lugging all of my bags from the bus station and they said they'd moved me to the B&B. That's fine, but they could have e-mailed me the information so I could have just gone there in the first place, rather than back-tracking while carrying around my 40lbs of luggage. Then the hot water was out; then ALL the water was out. Then the internet stopped working after my first night and never really worked well again for the next two days. Then I had to kill a bunch of bugs, including one that crawled on me while lying in bed.

That said, the breakfast is good and the staff is nice and the location is great. But it's just very average in the end.

Close enough to the historic center this place will offer you a big room with a big window and a varand! We chose a double with private bathroom and it was everything we wished for! The team in the Posada was very helpful and friendly, the breakfast is just enough - you'll have fresh bread, some pastry and cereals! Cleanliness isn't forgotten! It was a really good place to stay and I would stay there again!

A friendly hostel in the centre of town, a short walk from the bus and ferry terminals. I paid $75 for a double room (no single rooms on offer here). 

Although the room was spotlessly clean, the decor was very dated and could do with a revamp. The linens also are very tired and worn. Definitely not worth the rate being charged but this was Saturday night in Colonia. 

Breakfast was a typical hostel breakfast.

I stayed here on Halloween 2012. The staff could not have been more charming or helpful, it is a superb hostel, the location is excellent and everything about Posada El Viajero is of the highest standard.
Colonia del Sacramento is a wonderful town.
I would like to retire there.

Posada El Viajero is in a great spot, it was really clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. I'll be staying there again on my next visit. There is nothing more to add but trip advisor says I must fill out at least 200 characters and I have no clue how many these are right now.
