Fairly decent hostel if you're passing through Colonia for the night. Spacious dorms with good size lockers, strong wifi and aircon. It was annoying that there was only one spot to charge phones in the room which was far away from the beds. Didn't get a heap of sleep because our room was right next to reception which was playing music until 2am and started again at 7:30am. It wasn't blaring loud or anything but enough to keep you awake.

Great hostel. Good Shower (the one for rooms 1-5). The only two disadvantages- renting a towel costs money (you don't get one), and not much to do when it's raining (which was the case for me in one of those days) - there's a huge lobby with couchces and wifi and two computers which is great, but board games for example could be a wonderful extra for such cases (helps for socializing too). Other than that, 10/10, will definitely return to viajero in one of the other destinations!!!

Very nice hostel. Good atmosphere and well located. Bathroom could be better (1 bathroom for around 6 people and it was not the cleanest one).

Good place, no complaints. Good location, short walk to the water and old town. Lots of shops and places to eat nearby. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast.

Well run hostel with a great location. The staff is accommodating and try to make your stay as good as possible. The dorm we stayed in was super moldy, but OK for a night, which is also enough time to see Colonia. Breakfast is nothing for diabetics...

Well located and good atmosphere. Bedrooms weren't great, and breakfast was terrible. Good bar next door. Could do with an extra bathroom.

Good location. Not all rooms have aircon and ours didn't which was not good as it was so hot at night. Also don't go for room 1 or 5 as the bathroom they give you gets used by the entire hostel and staff so you are always waiting to use the bathroom. Highly annoying when all the other rooms have ensuite bathrooms. Staff should monitor this as it is so unfair. But what is worse is the staff use it despite saying no one else is allowed to use it apart from room 1&5

I had a private room at Viajero and it was *fancy* (for hostel standards). Nice bed, private bath, safe, tv and air conditioner! Really more like a hotel room located in a hostel, which makes it excellent value for money. Nicer than average breakfast spread, great common room area where people met and talked, plus nice courtyard and roof space. A nice short stay, and a great building. Only downside: bit less friendly staff than many hostels, but that comes w/ suite/ model and a shorter stay town

Good location near the old town. Nice big common area with couches and a TV. Breakfast was good and the staff were helpful. Only negatives were that the 8 bed dorm was very hot at night, and the bathroom was quite small so it flooded if someone had a shower.
