The place is located at the Main Street of colonia. Hostel is very cozy and has a tender atmosphere. Everything is clean. Staff are nice. They have bikes for free, so you can ride one of them and do a city tour very quickly, without renting those small and expensive cars!

We didn't stay there, but they stored our bags there for a day while exploring the city and were very friendly. The patio also seemed very nice and there was free coffee, so I guess recommended. Thanks

I stayed one week in this hostel and it was very nice. I shared the room with two others and the room was big enough for the backpacks. The badroom was clean and the kitchen was nice to cook. The location is perfect, you can walk everything and Colonia is beautiful and peaceful. Perfect place to relax. The workers are... More

The place is lovely, the rooms are cute and each one is different from the other. The people are lovely and totaly helpful. The bathrooms are several bathrooms and although I see people complain, I stayed there twice and never had problems looking for an empty one. There was always a lot of free ones. Also the water deal, that... More

My family of 5 stayed 2 nights at the Hostel. Very simple and friendly staff. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were stocked. They had a kitchen and let us build a fire in the fireplace during the cold evening make our time very enjoyable. The other hostels in town did not accept children under 18 so this place... More

We stayed here for 1 night, in a double room. Pros.... Good location, 5 min walk from the lighthouse and close to restaurants etc; Comfortable, clean, helpful staff and priced fairly. The common area was also spacious. Average... WiFi access was intermittent and the breakfast was average. Bad.... Nothing was bad - I would recommend this place.

Gentle and attentive staff, very nice, charmful and quiet place by a better price than many others. Very close to the old city and beaches, restaurants, supermarket and bus station. Few bathrooms but nice bedrooms also furnished with table and chairs.

The gentleman who owns this place, an older man, I am sorry but his name evades me to this day. But he did his best to make our stay as pleasant as possible.

This hostel was basic but does what it says on the tin. The room was basic but fine. No air con or heater (we were there in winter and it was very cold, but there were blankets).

We had been welcome by the owner of this old house and he was dressed according to the place ie. vintage look consisting of a wool sweater and beret! The hotel is full of charm. The dormitory rooms are located on the ground floor while the double rooms are located on the first floor and one around the patio. The... More

“The rooms are all good. Its a old building with old doors so you can hear people walking and talking but its not a party hostel so for me it was not a problem. Thats normal when you stay in a hostel I think.”

“We stayed on the back, and it was great. Second time we stayed on the first floor and it was also just fine. I think there's not a lot of difference in the rooms.”

“Do not settle for what you are told. Always look around. There are better prices to be had, as was the case here at Hostel Colonial, which also has free bicycle use and is centrally located near the town square.”
