The location is great, just a short walk from the old town. The bed in our private room was average; you need to make your own bed and towels are not provided. We did not like the shades in the room; we were on street level and they are metal rolling shutters on the outside of the street. Breakfast is...

Although the staff were lovely and helpful we were left a little disappointed... We are usually happy to pay slightly more for a nice hostel but found it rather overpriced, although this maybe the going rate in colonia. After a warm welcome we were taken to our private room and given our sheets to make the bed, very lazy of...

Our night at Sur Hostel is great: comfortable, clean and modern. We were on a 6 bed dorm. The staff is really nice too, and wifi is fast (which is rare in Colonia). During my stay in Colonia we slept in 3 different hostels, and this was the best.

Stayed here on the 9th and 10th March, super friendly and helpful staff, rooms were really clean and good bathrooms and facilities - great to be able to hang your washing outside! Breakfast also good whilst basic the addition of fresh fruit was huge plus. Def stay there again if I was in Colonia.

We really liked our room with a double balcony. Hired bikes and went on a wine tour. Loves the organised BBQ, best of the trip and lots of food. Had to ask for clean sheets as the first set wasn't. Nice breakfast. Computer access. Very friendly and helpful staff especially Bernado! Not enough bathrooms and shower heads are often broken....

Have to agree with many other reviewers here. VERY overpriced and extremely poor value for money!!! For $60 a night we had a tatty room, shared jaded bathroom and the breakfast was a joke as already stated. We were given our threadbare sheets and pillow cases and had to even make our own bed!! No towels were provided. However there...

Stayed one night for US60 which is pricey but reflective of Colonia. This was reduced to US50 on solo basis without prompting on checking in. Private basic room with shared bathroom. Bathroom a little dated and shower hose pretty short not allowing you to put it above your head. Needed to hire a towel for $2. Wifi worked fine in...

OK - this is a hostel and not a hotel - but for the price, it is pretty awful value. The bedroom was plain and small and the floor hadn't been swept in a long time, the bed was soft, and the shared bathroom worn and dirty. Every sound from outside penetrated into the (ground floor) room. The breakfast was...

We stayed on New Year's Eve. The place was pretty full, so at one point there was a line for the bathroom, but most of the time there were enough that only one or two (of the four shared) were occupied. Bathrooms were kept clean. Six-person dorm we stayed in was huge. Lockers weren't big enough to fit your entire...

The staff was great - very welcoming and helpful. They seem like they like their jobs and make conversation with the clients. The hostel is wonderfully clean!!!! After traveling around South America for months and staying at different hostels you come to really appreciate a clean shower and bathroom! I think the ones on the first floor are the cleanest...
