    One of the best hostels we’ve stayed in - beautiful rooms and a choice of outdoor courtyards to relax in. Kitchen facilities were great. Would definitely return and wish we’d been able to stay longer.

    This is a lovely hostel with great areas to hang out in, especially the hammocks! Beds were comfortable but I feel like the dorms could use a refurb - lots of the beds didn't have lockers and those that did (including mine) were broken. Also I'm not sure what the system with the A/C is but it wasn't turned on the first night and it was very hot in the dorm so I went and asked for the remote, and it was fine after that! Location is perfect for seeing Colonia

    Great location and great staff! Staff were very helpful in helping me book the walking tour, a massage, etc. I had a private room ensuite bath and there were a ton of mosquitoes when I arrived in the room. They went out and got me spray to fix the problem in the room- above and beyond!

    O hostel não tem controle de acesso, porém a cidade e o país são seguros. O café da manhã é pago a parte, mas é gostoso. É simples mas atende as necessidades de quem.esta viajando.

    The dorms were nice - the four bed female was a good choice. The courtyards were great, and the kitchen seemed well set up. The bathrooms were gross at all times - they really needed far more regular cleaning, but I got the feeling only one staff member was employed for that and she had her hands full with everything! The reception staff were helpful and friendly. The beds were mostly comfy and the lockers were good too.

    It is a beautiful Hostel but the bathrooms where a Little Dirty and After the First Night i discovered that i had bed bugs. That can Happen to every Hostel but then i had to wait for about an hour until someone from the Hostel could take a look at the bed. So i lost almost half a day of my two days staying in Colonia.

    Decent hostel with clean, but very basic rooms (no lamps, etc.). Also, very few bathrooms (that weren’t too clean) for the amount of guests.

    We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. It was ok for one night. Honestly, considering the price, I expected a bit more and for it to be cleaner.
