    This hostel was really lovely! The common areas both inside and out were very comfortable and clean. The vibe was friendly and chill. The 4 person dorm was spacious, bright, and had huge, secure lockers under the bed. It’s quite pricey but Uruguay in general is more expensive. They offer breakfast for an additional price but it’s primarily bread based so I wouldn’t recommend it.

    Very accommodating staff (especially Nicolas), chill vibes, nice common areas. I was there only for a night so I cannot say too many things for the social atmosphere but the place makes it easy to meet other travellers. Would recommend for sure.

    (pre-covid) A very chill hostel in a lovely small town. There isn't much happening in Colonia, but if you just want to clear your mind and hang out, maybe meet a few cool people, this is the place for you! Staff didn't speak much English and the interaction was very limited, but they were friendly nonetheless. I remember the ladies preparing breakfast being especially friendly with a lot of smiles.

    This is a great hostel to stay in Sacramento, very central in a beautiful old building with large inner yard, very chill and relaxed. Staff was very friendly and beds comfortable. Showers could be improved but not a big issue. Would stay there again next time.

    Close to the historic part of town/ferry terminal/bus terminal. It was very quiet when I stayed, but there were still people making lots of noise in the common areas until the early hours. Staff were very friendly.

    Overall a fair stay. Nothing was standing out but nothing was too bad either. Room was okay, bath was okay but clean only in the am (!), socket not working but staff helped with solution, location right at the limit of the more populated center and still quite convenient.
