The hostel was very good, I would definitely stay here again. There is no elevator so it can be hard getting luggage up to the 5th floor
The hostel building is beautiful, but the facilities do not match, the kitchen is too small, the rooms are overcrowded with beds and very hot and there are no fans, all the bathroom doors had broken locks. The staff were friendly but because they were backpackers they weren´t that knowlegable. The place has amazing potential but needs some changes
This hostel is excellent - it is new, the beds are very comfortable, the staff are fiendly and they have the best showers in South America. A great location on the beach, i will stay here longer
The staff were incredibly nice and helpful. I ended up staying longer. The hostel has a great, friendly feel to it, i was a bit sad to leave
Hostal Jhomana was in a great location, excellent amenities, very secure. Friendly staff - not all spoke great English, but they tried very hard and were very kind and welcoming. Try to get a room on the second floor, the door bell can be annoying on the first floor.
Pousada Bonita is different.... We had a great time there. However it is not your usual hostel/B&B. The people staying there were mainly long term residents, from other countries, who were there to work on community programs-it is social, but not a party hostel. The owner was an amazing person - friendly, interesting, helpful and so community minded. It is very close to Centro-musuems, theatre etc, the bus routes, the Metro and the bondhino (tram) up the mountain in Santa Teresa.
The El Viajero B&B in Colonia, was beautiful, across from the water, right next to the old town and walking distance to the port and bus station. The staff were very kind, the breakfast was good and the porperty is lovely. Excellet place to stay and practically the same price as staying at a hostel.
The hotel decor is a little bit dated but it was clean, comfortable, the staff were all very firendly, felt very safe, great location, excellent value for money in the quiet season.
Excellent Hostel, great staff, will definitely use this hostel when travelling to NY again, much cheaper than a hotel and so central
