Sacramento Hostel
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

This place is beautiful with relaxed vibe, nice kitchen and awesome garden. With a bakery few doors down, couldn't be more perfect. I also wonder whether uruguay has legalised marijuana so the bob marley cookies they sell at the reception will have any additional ingredient in the near future.

Hostel wasn't far from the ferry terminal so was good, everything was fairly standard, the guy who greeted us when we got there was nice and helpful, breakfast is very average, as a whole there was nothing special about this hostel

Good: dorm rooms were not over crowded. Breakfast was more than just plain bread. Aircon worked on our room (to the right as u enter the front door). staff helpful. Garden peaceful and has laundry line. There is a secret bathroom in the dining room.

Bad: evening reception lady kept getting cold when it's 80 deg and closing all the ventilation doors . bathrooms are poorly located so when door opens everyone can see you. One men's shower didn't work so that only left one other. security is lacking, as there is a strange front room setup with two dorms doors next to front exit.

Stayed one night here in January 2013 in the 6 bed dorm at the back. It's quite a small and cramped dorm, but it has aircon and we slept quite well. We were there on a Wednesday night and it was quite quiet, but our room was next to the outside bar, so it could get noisy at busier times or on weekends.

The garden was a nice place to sit and relax, the breakfast was OK and most of the hostel facilities were quite good e.g. the shared toilets/bathrooms were quite new and modern and clean - however they ran out of toilet paper in one of the mens cubicles and ran out of hand towels by the washbasins and didn't check and restock them during our stay.

The hostel is in a very handy location for both the bus station and the ferry port, just two blocks away from both and only a short walk to the historic old town.

We stayed two nights in Colonia - only one of which was with Sacramento Hostel. The staff super friendly, kitchen nice, rooms while not having a bathroom was well appointed so normally a review would warrant a very good or excellent... but its just too small a property. You are literally climbing over people to get past as the public computer is in the main hallway and then at 3am people are still chatting and laughing smoking and drinking which is cool but its only about 3 metres from your head... it is a real shame as its got everything else going for it.

My advice - stay here midweek or when its a quiet time but otherwise find somewhere else.

Room Tip: tough call - near reception you get reception noise, out back you get smoking and laughing...

We were there off season in a private room with shared bath. We had no problems but guess it would be very noisy when the place is full as the bedroom door is right by the reception desk, computer and phone. Remember it is a hostel :) This is the only bad thing.

it was clean, friendly, good wifi, great home made bread for breakfast, good location, nice kitchen and the bathrooms were good enough.

Room Tip: The two downstairs private rooms are quite public and liable to be noisy.

This place will probably do for a night or two, but it's not an ideal hostel in any way. We stayed in the private double room for a night and it was a dark dingy airless space right next to the cramped reception and computer room. All night the phone rang, people had conversations, and doors opened and shut as if they were right next to us. The backyard of the hostel would be kind of a nice space if it were a little tidier--- it looked like a storage space for old furniture and empty beer bottles. The bathrooms, each with two toilets and two showers, are shared by approximately 30 people.

However this does have a really kind and friendly staff, and they have rock bottom prices, and that makes staying here tolerable for a short time. They also served tasty fresh bread for breakfast, and their coffee was good. Just be sure and bring bug spray for the backyard... It is FULL of misquitos!!!
