Such a great experience :) If you want to see the real Uruguay, you found it. It's a tranquil place with activities like horseback riding and the dinners are great. Best meat so far! Miguel and Monica were so nice and welcoming that i didn't feel like leaving this paradise place. One of the highlights on our 7 months South America travel.

Providing bread as the only food for breakfast is not substantial enough for a meal. El Galope should focus on adding something more considerable to the breakfast menu. When we were at the hostel there were empty rooms that were available that would've been considered an upgrade to the room we were staying. 99% of the bed and breakfasts we've stayed in (in the past) would've upgraded us to the nicer room. Sink in the kitchen does not provide hot water (how do dishes ever get clean)?

El Galope was a welcoming respite from city travel. We truly enjoyed our brief stay and wish it had been longer.

this place was amazing, more of a boutique hotel than a hostel. the owner cooked us a really nice meal & picked out a brilliant bottle of Uruguayan red to go with, it was a bit on the expensive side, but as it was a 30th b'day we didn't mind. we chatted with the owner that evening, but he gave us space while we ate. we wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the peace of the farm & to try out the sauna! it's a great place to stay between montevideo and colonia. as it's a farm there are dogs,

It is Mord bring part of a family rather than staying in a hostel. Thanks a lot for this great time. The meals were out of question.

Thank you so much for your comment and rating. Welcoming guests home is like sharing with family or firends for us. That's why we enjoy it and becomes a unique experience for us too. Cheers

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.
