This hostel was lovely. We very much enjoyed the terrace, breakfast, and location. However, our night here was our worst night sleep in two months of travel in South America. The dorm rooms near the entrance are as good as sleeping on the street. Loud music, cars, and foot traffic were almost amplified in this space.


They have a pub inside that play music until 12:30 it was a nightmare stay. It is also expensive compared to other hostels nearby.


Nice and well run hostel. Rooms are secured by a card based access hotel style and there's always a friendly face of the staff around to help. Good Internet Connection!


We chose this hostel for its proximity to the bus station and ferry and for that it was excellent. It is an easy a 5 min walk to the old town. The staff are helpful and the hostel itself is adequate.


Nice hostel close to everything (though in Colonia it's hard not to be!), with a nice little common area and pretty decent kitchen. We booked a dorm and ended up being given a private room, which worked out great for us! The bed in there was really comfortable and it had AC.


Was an ok property! Close to port and bus station. Nice bed. Ok wifi.

Was only there for one night...but was exactly what we wanted. Great location, no surprises and good staff


Good enough place in colonia. Nothing special but easy to reach from port/bus station. Would stay again.


Loved the hammocks. Staff didn't speak a ton of English, but it was fine. Decent breakfast, not the best nor the worst. Good wifi connection. Located about 5 minute walk from bus station/ferry port, and about 10-15 minutes from the old town.


We were in a private double with private en suite. Great location and nice place but some other guests were playing guitar and singing until midnight when we were there. If you speak Spanish, you'd probably have a great time joining in but if you want a good nights sleep, this probably isn't the place for you...


Basic hostel, dorms cramped and not enough sockets, there was only one socket to use by someone elses bed. No lamps and only 2 showers. Good location in beautiful Colonia


Relaxing hostel for staying before you head off to Buenos Aires or further into Uruguay. Very clean, affordable and good breakfast.


Good location to the port, helpful staff, clean, would recommend.


Nice quiet hostal for a quiet town. Really clean and yummy breakfast


Great location (5 minutes from the bus terminal, 10 minutes from the historic part of the town), spacious rooms, friendly stuff, clean decent hostel.

-Nice staff; -Security at its best: big and individual lockers, individual key cards; -Great location: one minute from port and bus terminal and close to the old town; -There is a good common area for relaxing and talking; -Air conditioner; -Clean bedrooms and bathrooms; -The difference between Che Lagarto Colonia to Che Lagarto Buenos Aires is huge. The argentineans should learn with the uruguayans how to run a hostel.


The hostel has a great location - only 5 minutes from the bus station and the port and two blocks from the Main Street. The room was big and the lockers were under the bunk bed, which was smart as it didn't take up any space. We only stayed one night but it we felt like there wasn't any "hostel atmosphere". Could be because Colonia's not a place were people stay more than 1-2 nights.


The hostel is very well located, in a walk distance from the bus station, and the ferry, also close to the old town, and restaurants. The place is very cozy, and clean. The bathroom is very clean all the time, has 2 showers separated from the toilets, and a huge mirror for the girls, and also a make up mirror. It's hard to find it anywhere. (not that this is very important, but it impressed me). The staff is nice, and willing to help you, specially Dimitri. The rooms hav a big locker, and air.


Nice spaciouspacious hostel with air con in all the roomsrooms. Very friendly staff. Kitchen gets very steamy and hot when cooking! Showers were good too, strong and hot water. Ten minute walk from the historic centre.


It's a basic hostel, conveniently located. Good value for money and nice, helpful staff. I'd say it needs some refurbishment as some parts look old and dirty (like I wish I haven't seen the ceiling in men bathroom).
