Good location (you can walk from the bus station or the port). The hostel has a touch of vintage / antique just like the city. Clean with a good black coffee at breakfast. I recommend for the ones who likes hostels in general

Very welcoming and nice staff. I liked the chill atmosphere and the common areas. The kitchen is a bit small but it's well equipped. Good breakfast with both bred and cereals, in addition to fruits. I'll recommend El Viajero for backpackers, friends and vacations!

It is located near the sights of colonia and only 5mins by taxi from the ferry terminal. Ideal if you ust want to hop over from...

They overbooked me and without any previous warning, booked me a cheap hotel that didn't accept cash. I had to walk 3 km to withdraw money. I had to buy anti allergics either. TAKE CARE! Choose another place to stay.

They overbooked me and threw me to a cheap hotel that only accepted money. I had to walk 3 kilometers do withdraw money. They didn`t warn me before and by the time I arrived the front desk guy said ihe couldn't find my reservation but there was a room available. After this room misteriously vanished.

Good: nice staff, clean but small rooms, breakfast Ok: amenities Bad: lots of party backpackers, who were very noisy until the early morning, no one seemed to care Location is also good but shouldn't be your main concern, since colonia is very small.

This hostel is in a good location, really friendly staff and good Internet. The room was super cold though, they do have graters but these take a while to get the rooms warm which was not so great as it was freezing when I visited. Close to super markets and they have a kitchen to use as well with plenty...
