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...

Great and friendly staff. It can get a bit noisy by some guests and friends of the staff, but that is part of the hosteling world, you have to learn how to deal with it. Some fruit options for breakfast would be nice .

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the water was always warm, and the living area was so cozy. My stay was marred by inclement weather in Colonia, but I made great friends at the hostel. No complaints.

Stayed here for only one night but it was great! It's in a great location and it was very clean. Breakfast was also included. I stayed in a dormitory style room with 2 bunk beds (4 beds) and the room had its own full bath within the room. Everyone was really nice, and they were really quick to help us...
