Great location! 2 blocks from the Bus Station and the Ferry Station. I just think that it is not well explained at the website, I had to make a round on the block to find the hostel! it is just to take a street in front of the ferry station (don't remember the name) and then turn the second left (Calle 18 de Julio) and it is much closer! The rooms and the bathroom were very clean. The staff (Felipe and Dimitri) were very helpfull and friendly.
The staff was very helpful and friendly, we watch the word cup game and there was a nice environment, the.breakfast is very good as well
Really close to bus- and ferry-terminal, security is really poor because you could enter our room before you walk by the receptionist, staff was helpful and friendly, it was not clean - really! bathroom were somewhat of dirty :-/
The breakfast is good and varied, but is served in a place outside to the structure... Some rooms are more external compared to the reception and then the safety of the place, although Colonia is more than safe, it is poor, since it seems that anyone, that it is not a guest can enter and take advantage of the services available... The staff is kind and friendly! No doubt the hostel is one of the options more comfortable and economic here... Recommended!
I recommand this hostel for your trip in Buenos Aires. Staff is nice, breakfast is good and the location is perfect. If you need silence it's not a good place for you, but if you need friends it's perfect ! Cool terrace as well but it's not very very clean and bathrooms are noy very nice (but it's an hostel !) Don't hesitate, go there !
The branch owner is very nice and friendly. The beds are new and clean. There's a nice fireplace and an outdoor seating area. Breakfast was good. There are a bunch of "volunteers" running the place that really seem to just take up space and resources like the kitchen, seating, breakfast, and wifi. They accept credit cards. They have lockers for your stuff. The wifi only works right next to the router so everyone is crowded into that room all the time to be able to connect. Overly very good!
We liked this hostel. The only issue was with security. They didnt have lockers in the dorm and ours was right next to the front door...which was always wide open. Anyone could easily sneak in and steal anything they wanted. No one would even see them enter.
Staff and atmosphere were great. Loved the location close to the bus station. Breakfast was also good.
The staff were nice, spoke Engkish, and were helpful. The dorm was pretty small and had no space for my bag, but I am used to this. There is fruit at breakfast if you get in early. The bathroom facilities were good, and the hostel was generally clean.
Decent hostel. Nice staff! Great location! Close to the bus and boat terminals an the old town/ Main Street. Great showers. Only complaint was the kitchen was always messy and could of been cleaner. Or at least more enforcement on cleaning up after yourselves. The rest of the hostel was generally pretty clean.
I only stayed one night so difficult to fully judge but the main thing for me is the assistance of the staff- offering umbrellas during a massive downpour and when I left my towel and a few toiletries, they found someone to take then to my next destination for me- much appreciated.
The front 2 rooms are before the reception desk and the front door is always left open, so they didn't seem overly safe. The breakfast was pretty poor, and the kitchen was small, but the wifi was pretty good and the people were nice. It would have been nice to have someone cleaning in the hostel more frequently, as the kitchen was quite dirty and so were the bathrooms. Because it's a chain, it doesn't feel like anyone really cares about the hostel. If you're in Colonia briefly, it's decent.
The hostel is located in the center, at a walking distance from the old city, the bus terminal and the marina. They have a nce garden with a hammock where you can relax. The staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast consists of sweet food (gem and cake), coffee and tea. I didn't like the fact that the front door was always opened and there wasn't always somebody in the reception, so outsiders could easily enter the rooms in the front, but I guess it's a pretty safe city.
