The hostel was clean enough with sufficient showers for the amount of people staying. It's in a good location close to a supermarket and ATMs. I would recommend staying here. The only issue I found was the noise factor late at night. If you want to get any sleep, you may struggle!

I spent a night in the hostel on my way to Buenos Aires. Some of the staff were very friendly while others were very bored. My room, 4 bed en suite was basic and clean with working security boxes but the bathroom was not very modern. At some point while I was in the bathroom a 4 cm bug fell...

I only stayed here for one night so my review my be a little basic. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Free welcome drink on arrival. A welcoming atmosphere amongst all the guests. Breakfast was the standard expected with hostels, nothing to fancy but satisfying.

We made a reservation in the UK before leaving and had been charged a deposit by Hosteling International. We arrived at the hostel to be told that they had no record of us and that there were no available rooms or beds in dorms. What made it worse was that the staff really weren´t that bothered and just blamed it...

We stayed for 2 nights and had a good time at the hostel. It is pretty clean by Uruguayan standards and had a great atmosphere. We joined in on their Asado BBQ the first night we were there and thought it was great value and a fantastic way to meet other travellers. It is around 2 minutes walk from the...

Colonia is a small, absolutely beautiful town in Uruguay. Although home to many expensive hotels, save yourself the hassle and money by staying at the El Viajero Hostel. Staff are extremely friendly, speak English well, and know the area well. We were treated to a free welcome drink at their bar and, sadly, missed out on a BBQ organised by...

We stayed in a private double ensuite room. For a hostel its pretty good value for money. Excellent location - we walked from the ferry depo (with cases) and also walked to the bus station (with cases). Good facilities, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast included and they hosted a BBQ night which was excellent value - US$10 for a feast....

The hostel was pleasant with a good breakfast. The bunks were comfy and the toilets and bathrooms are ensuite. The reception staff were helpful to us but we were only there for one night so didn't ask too much from them!

The desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful and, for the most part, spoke English quite well. Unfortunately, a member of the cleaning staff (Silvia) was quite rude, even talking about me in spanish in front of me...I speak spanish pretty well.
