Good location and nice and helpful staff, good breakfast, good kitchen. But a house without any atmosphere, uncomfortable terraces, spacious rooms but very loud from the street at the weekend. The bathrooms are horrible. Too less, very old, rubbish and broken. Far too expensive for that.

The Sur Hostel was a great and good surprise on my trip to Colonia del Sacramento. I stayed there only one night, but it was a great experience. The rooms are wide with good beds and heater. The bathroom is very clean! There is a fireplace where you can warm up on the winter and talk with other guests. I...

This is a great hostel which had everything we needed. Our room was spacious with a street view and heating, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was regularly cleaned. The communal areas were nice, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast was fine.

I enjoyed my stay here! Nacho greeted us and made me feel very welcome! The rooms are simple and large. The window shades are actually metal so they are very good for blocking out noise and light! Bath towels are not included but they do have them. In the winter it may be a little cold in the rooms but...

A great hostel in this small, historic town. Tons of good-sized common areas inside in addition to a cool rooftop patio and courtyard area outside. Staff is amazingly friendly. A big place. Lots of hard surfaces, so it can get loud with the echos, etc., but not bad. Plenty of bathrooms, dorm rooms are big. Breakfast is fine, and they...

A home away from home they call it and we really felt like in an apartment of friends... Check-In was in the living room, where the reception-desk is – quite uncomplicated. We arrived on a Saturday and they were just starting with their asado. There was enough food that we could join them and got a great meal in the...

In all of my months traveling the land of Central and South America, this is easily one of the best if not the best hostel I've stayed at. Staff are incredibly friendly and kind, more like your best friends for the weekend. Helpful and eager to show you around Colonia. Rooms are generously sized, comfortable and clean. Breakfast is decent,...

This is a decent hostel in a beautiful town. The staff are really laid back and helpful and there is a really nice communal area. The wifi only really works in this area so it means that everyone hangs around the lounge area. There is also a really nice rooftop patio with chairs and tables to have lunch or sunbathe,...

Spent only one night here passing though from Buenos Aires to Montevideo, really all you need to see Colonia. The rooms are big with nice huge windows which are necessary in the summer as it is VERY hot and no a/c. Nice bathrooms, good kitchen and a decent breakfast included in price consisting of great fresh bread, jams, fruit and...
