The hostel is located in a good position half way between the ferry port and the old town so it is easy walking distance between the two. The hostel staff were friendly and were happy to give advice. Overall the hostel was clean. We were staying in a private room with ensuite on the first floor. The rooms were very... More

El Viajero is part of a hostels chain. The one in Colonia is centrally located and well equipped. It's very clean (especially the kitchen); beds were quite comfortable (8 bed dorm) and breakfast was OK. The guy at the reception could smile more.

Great hostel with a great atmosphere, comfortable beds, large rooms but a bit dark, lockers under the beds, decent breakfast, helpful staff. Location is great, close to everything in the old part of town and a not too far walk from the ferry dock and bus station

The hostel has a great atmosphere and very friendly, helpful staff. The double rooms were clean, well equipped, with good bathrooms. The outdoor terrace was lovely for relaxing in the afternoon / evening before having a barbecue in the lower patio. Location is awesome - close to the old town, the bus terminal and banks, restaurants etc. On the basis... More

Friendly staff. Great location, not far from bus and ferry and round the corner from the main road with restaurants and cafes. Close... More

I'd happily stay here again. The location is great - a short walk from the port and within easy reach of restaurants and cafes. You have to make your own bed when you arrive but at least you know the sheets are clean! Our dormitory had a very noisy door which meant you couldn't enter or leave the room without... More

This hostel was brilliant! Best nights I've slept in a hostel ever and I'm a light sleeper. The rooms are quiet and dark, perfect for sleeping. Breakfast was pretty good for hostel standards with fresh bread and jam, dulce de leche, cheese and butter, cornflakes, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and cordial. Only complaint was there aren't enough power points in... More
