The location is very good bc is just 100 meters away from the bus station and the port. The dorm is really small and there are no lockers as advertised in the website. Dimitri at the reception is a good guy and he stored my valuable in the safebox at the desk. I've asked to change date by phone but they refused that.
It's a good hostel, but kind of small. It has a good location and great air conditioner - and Colonia is very hot in the summer so this is a thing to consider.
Good hostel with nice shared bathroom. We arrived very late at night and the beds wernt ready with no sheets available. We slept in our sleeping bags. Rooms are very small with beds squashed in. Average breakfast. Staff could not speak English but made a good effort using google translate. Good location I between bus/ ferry port and town.
I liked that the beds were wooden which meant they were squeaky. However, the rooms are organized around the sitting area and it was always loud (late at night and then again early in the morning). I also found there wasn't a comfortable sitting area, just a table and chairs. I enjoy sleep and, for that reason, I wouldn't stay at this hostel again. It was clean though.
Really close to the bus station and ferry port. A really nice area close to the old town with free bike to get you around. Rooms are a bit small but ok for a few day.
It could have been a much better experience if they hadn't put 6 people in a room suitable for 4 - and that without a window (but to be fair with AC). Staff + breakfast were no more than average. The patio is OK but you could make so much more of it. On the whole I wasn't overly excited...
A nice enough hostel though nothing special.
