The staff at this hostel were supurb. When asking for places to eat or other shops around Colonia the staff gave truthful answers and easy directions. The room I was in was very dark even when I chose the bed next to the lamp but there were lockers under the bed and a decent sized bathroom. The bright interiors in...

This hostel was fine, but it certainly was not worth the almost $90 USD that we paid to stay in a private room. The room was not terribly clean (there was a used mop left in our bathroom), there were tons of flies and mosquitos inside our room, and the entire thing smelled like mold--it was very dark and dank....

My girlfriend and I stayed here for just one night in February 2013, in a mixed dorm. We left the next day due to the abominable state of the bathrooms. Pros: - Fairly comfortable beds, although not long enough if you're taller than six feet, just like the rest of South America though. - The kitchen is well equipped, albeit...

This chain of hostels is excellent although they only have a few. Great big areas on the roof, street and lounge. Staff are very helpful. this is a great base for colonia a town which I wish I had spent more time in. If enough people sign up the staff will also cook asados or can recomend soe good eats.

This hostel is friendly, more so than most, making you feel right at home. The staff who run the hostel are friendly and interested in making your stay as comfortable as possible. There is a bar like you would find at home, eating and TV area with comfortable newer lounge an pillows. The area opens out onto the street which...

Good localization, gentle staff and and a great atmosphere between the guests. You can stay only for a night, but two nights ware perfect to know the historical city, take a rest and know good people. If there would be any program at the hostel, accept because is a wonderful way to kwow good people.

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.
