Very good location, very tidy. Reasonable breakfast. All in all, good value for money.


Everything was pretty good! Very clean, organized, and new! Breakfast was poor, only toasts, cake and coffe with milk. The staff was a little bit lazy during breakfast time, they were chatting in the kitchen while clients were waiting at the reception to check out


Clean and modern, with heating and air conditioning. Located a few blocks from the old part of town on a quiet street opposite the Radisson Hotel and Casino. It was a bit noisy one night because of soccer fans from Montevideo celebrating their victory, but the atmosphere was very friendly. Lockers plus a separate safe for wallets and passports. Only one public computer, but there didn't seem to be much demand.


Really nice hostel in a great location near the old area. The hostel is more like a hotel then a hostel. Really clean and nice breakie. Had to give the staff an average as they didn't speak English and although I'm learning spanish I'm still not great. Also atmosphere an average as we went out of season so it was empty but would be better in summer.


Nice hostel! Not much to complain about other than the shower area got pretty wet.


Excellent location- 2 mins was from Main Street of bars and restaurants and 5 mins into old town. The kitchen was great with plenty of pots/ utensils. Wifi was excellent. Super clean Staff were not the friendliest bunch. More of a hotel than a hostel as it lacked a social atmosphere.


Nice place close to old town, boat and busses. Quiet during the night and clean. Good showers and breakfast was what it usually is in Uruguay (bread, jam, coffee, juice). The girls in that work there are ok, but not that friendly. I would stay again. I stayed only one night.


The place was a 2 minute walk from the historic area of Colonia. Place was spotless and although the wifi dropped briefly once or twice, when it was working it was very fast. Only complaint is maybe the breakfast could have had more alternatives to toast and croissants. Would definitely stay here again.
