I loved my stay here. The owners Monica and Miguel are friendly and welcome you to their authentic country home. I had local cheese fondu for dinner, and the horse ride (extra cost, but worth it) was fun because they horses are very responsive and well trained, but aren't mechanical trail riding horses. There isn't wifi or the boatload of typical hostel facilities, but you don't need them, if you're looking for a country escape. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your comment. It was nice to have you here too. All the best. Cheers Miguel and Monica


This is a wonderful cozy ranch that is more of a fancy bed and breakfast then a hostel. It you like horses you must go here, and even if you don´t you will enjoy the atmosphere. Great food, wonderful staff, and a beautiful area. It does take a little bit of effort to get here from Colonia, but they outline how to get there perfectly and will have a taxi waiting for you at the bus stop. Dont let the commute stop you from going here. Highly reccomend.

Thank you for you rating and review. It was very nice to have you here. All the best Cheers Monica and Miguel


Absolutely brilliant! Miguel and Monica were great hosts, very friendly and interesting. The horse ride was a lot of fun, with very calm, well trained and responsive horses. The accommodation was lovely, peaceful and homely, and Monica's meals were delicious. Very easy to get to, and all for a decent price. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for your coment nd rating. It was nice to share good moments with you too. Cheers Monica and Miguel


El Galope is a charming and quaint horse ranch about an hour outside of Colonia. We arrived at the Valdense bus terminal and got into the taxi arranged by the owners, who drove us 10 to the hostel. The hosts explained everything to do during our stay. Breakfast is free and lunch and dinner are prepared for $10-20, depending on the meal. You can also purchase beer, amazing wine and other drinks for a reasonable price. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean with nice bedding for a good sleep.

Thank you for your comment and rating. All the best Monica and Miguel


Monica and Miguel are the perfect hosts. Very clean, comfy & cosy rooms. Try the organic, hand squeezed wine from their friends down the road.

Thank you for your coment and rating!!! All the best to you


I had a great time at El Galope, even ended up staying a night longer. Even if you're not a big fan of horses you can have a very relaxing time there. The owners are extremly friendly and helpful and the rooms are beautiful!
