I really liked this hostel, but it did have some negatives. On the plus side, very convenient location near to the port and the bus terminal, supermarket nearby, wifi was strong and consistent, hammocks were lovely and breakfast had a decent variety to it. Negatives are that few staff seemed to be multi lingual, security seemed a bit dodgy if you were in a dorm by the front, and very little atmosphere at all. A nice place to chill out though, and a couple of days is probably enough


The staff is amazing! The good vibe and the acomodation are the best of the city. Near of Buquebus Stop, Old City and the main avenue make Che Lagarto perfect to stay.


The Hostel was really okay, only that the front door is open all day long and the entrance to our dorm was right next to the front door so everybody could have walked in.


not that much options in such small city. the town is very small so very easy to walk around and safe. Bus terminal very close. it s clean, the patio is nice and kitchen well equiped. Staff is fine. Security is poor, anyone could enter in our room from the outside. since it s at the entrance.


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!


The have free bikes!!
