The staff is cheerful and hard-working, but no one speaks English, so some things fall between the cracks. This hostel has a capacity for many guests and accepts large family groups, as well as children; so the public areas can become extremely noisy with dug-in, socializing crowds. The lobby was directly off my dorm-room which made it frequently hard to sleep. Also, you will need an umbrella to access any of the shared-bathrooms, as the three toilet/shower rooms surround the open-air patio.
Not a very sociable atmosphere. It is important you know English or you will have a hard time with reception. I stayed here in mid February. Overall, bathrooms werent that clean and facilities were so-so.
They have a nice backyard. The breakfast was really poor, and they only speak spanish.
Good place for the price and within walking distance of everything. Nice courtyard,hammocks good under the night sky! Room a little bit musty and a squeaky fan
Sufficient for a couple days stay in Colonia. Wifi spotty and breakfast was rock hard bread. On the plus side showers hot, toilets clean and beds comfortable enough. No lockers so bring a cable lock.
A pleasant stay after Sur hostel!
