    One of the absolute best hostels ice stayed in, perhaps the best. Gorgeous rooms, inspiring art and very kind staff. I stayed an extra day just for the atmosphere of the hostel and of Colonia.

    Stay was great, we had great days. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed live music and this one staff member played music in the evening. Almost everyone spoke English. One problem was that early in the morning people spoke very loudly. And our room was near the kitchen, so we heard every sound.

    Nothing special here, but close to the colonial express port. Definitely a place to go to relax and chill. Guy at check-in didn’t seem too in tune with surrounding area. Small shower for one in room of 8 that took 5+ min to drain after each shower.

    Good

    It was fine but a couple of things to set the scene - my four bed dorm had one power outlet, which was a pain when it had four people in it - the room leaked when it rained, proper puddle causing leaking - the room where bags were locked up for people wasn’t actually locked and was a couple of metres inside the open door to the street, so was the dorm door.
