Excellent location - short walk to old town, bus station and ferry. Beds are comfortable. Staff are friendly. Wifi is decent. No lockers in the room. Breakfast is minimal (just bread, condiments and drinks). Bathrooms are few in number and don't have soap. Common areas don't have many activities or entertainment options.
Very nice hostel in perfect location. Staff were very helpful. Only minuses were broken nightlamp and a lack of toiletpaper at times. We enjoyed out stay there.
Weird atmosphere. Always filled with the owners and/or managers family. The family would always be watching the tv, and if you went in the room it felt like you were intruding on their family time. Kitchen was the very bare essentials, and most things were dirty. However, overall the hostel was very clean. Not many people were there which I'm sure is because it's the off-season.
Excellent location! It is located in Colonia's main street, close to many shops and restaurants. It is also very close (5-10 min walking distance) to both Buquebus ferry pier and Colonia bus station, and to Colonia's historic center. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but good. Few bathrooms but when we stayed the hostel had few travelers so it wasn't a problem. The doors of the room are two-part old style which can be tricky if you have never used them before.
+: Nice building with patio and fireplace in the common room -: Minimalist breakfast Poor noise isolation in the romos Room smelled woodfire because situatedabov the common room
The location is excellent and the staff is very attentive. I really recommend the hostel by value for money and atmosphere. The breakfast is also fine.
Great location with good atmosphere! The hostel is located in a beautiful colonial house, close to Colonia´s main attractions. Staff is nice and helpful. There is a nice common area to relax and make friends. Breakfast is OK, nothing much. Only downside are the bathrooms, which are a old and a bit dirty.
A great place to stay in Colonia as it is both close to the historic area and bus station. There are many restaurants and shops nearby too. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are spotless and showers are piping hot. The communal area is small but comfortable and there are two computers for guest use and a small kitchen. Breakfast consists of cereal, coffee and bread rolls. For some reason there was a very bad smell in the reception area though.
