“Perfect getaway for peace and quiet”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Our stay at “El Galope” was really nice! Monica & Miguel make you feel at home when you arrive and were the perfect hosts during the whole stay. They constantly make sure you are doing ok and have everything you need. The place is charming and set in beautiful surroundings where you can relax to the maximum. The horse riding trip was amazing and the horses are great. El Galope is more a home stay or bed & breakfast rather than a hostel. Monica makes the best food; we loved her cooking and the neighbor’s wine! We are jealous of what they have and hope maybe that one day we’ll be able to do the same.

Hi,
This is exactly how we feel too. It is like receiving friends at home. That's why we keep it small so that we can also enjoy our guests and get to know them.
Thank you for your commets and your stay.
Cheers
Miguel and Monica

I will always remember this place as one of the best trips in my life... not only because of Colonia, thats an amazing destination, but because El Galope... beautiful landscapes, clean and fresh air, the loved animals and off course Monica and Miguel... make you feel, like a member of their fammily... Its just like a dream you dont want to be awake!!!

Stop dreaming about waking up between hundreds of birds seeing the sunrise. Just do it: at El Galope we really had the feeling of 'being away from it all'. One of the best beaches is within 20km, Monica cooks great honest healthy meals and the view is amazing. El Galope is honestly one of the best hostels to go to when you are looking for a place surrounded by nature, and hosted by two great people. Love it!

Thank you for your comments. Just yesterday we were woken up by so many birds!! It is the end of winter time and they are all very active!!!
There is now a small bus to the beach which makes easier if you are too lazy to ride!

El galope is a peaceful paradise in Uruguay. Miguel and Monica make you feel really welcome, while also leaving you to enjoy the calmness of their lovely farm.
Location wise is beautifully open, horse riding is a true treat. The breakfast and dinners are fantastic, especially the asado (grill) that miguel takes massive pride in cooking and getting the guests to join in the full experience.

Can't wait to go back, even just for a drink of mate,a chat and watch the humming birds hustle around the garden.

It makes us feel so good to read comments like yours! After living in many different places we also feel we have found our little piece of heaven and love sharing it with a glass of good red wine and asado!
It is the end of winter and humming birds are not here yet, but in the early morning we are woken up but so many birds now that spring is coming!
Cheers

I had an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable time at El Galope. Miguel and Monika make you feel incredibly welcome and it is a perfect opportunity to get away from the big cities to unwind in the beautiful Uruguayan countryside. The horse riding was probably my highlight - you have to do it! The place has a very pleasant atmosphere, with meals (barbque and fondue/pizza when I was there) and plenty if wine in the evening. This is one of the best places I've stayed in. I'd highly recommend.

We had a great experience at the place of Miguel and Monika. After the heat and activity of Buenos Aires there s hardly any place better than being in the countryside, to refresh at the swimming pool, to make a small bycicle tour in the surroundings and to have Monika s cheese fondue by night to fall asleep in the quiet environment after having chatted with other guests.

Miguel and Monika, you really made us feel welcome and made it so easy for everyone staying at the hostel to meet each other. We love the rooms, the dog, the cats, the horses, the cheese, the good company, great chats, wine, sauna, the view, the calm - maybe not the bike haha You also gave us fantastic recommendations for the rest of our trip. We are already recommending your place to everyone one we meet. Thank you for the great time and wonderful hospitality- Eve and Drew (the Anzacs)
