    You can't beat the location. And the courtyard is such a beautiful place to read a book or chat with your new friends.

    Really nice hostel, very close to the port and bus terminal (less than 10 minute walk), breakfast looked decent even though I didn’t have it. Nice outdoor seating area, beds were good, nice big lockers. Can’t really complain!

    Very nice hostel at just 100m walk to the old town. Staff was very nice and friendly. Lockers are a joke tho, which made it impossible to store your valuables properly. Because of the low-season the hostel wasn't fully booked, which made it feel a little bit dead. Overall perfect place to stay and just hang out for a couple of days. I would like to stay here again.

    Awesome little hostel located on the main strip in Colonia del Sacremento. Super close walk from the ferry terminal. Awesome outdoor lounging space and cute little kitchen. Bunks were nice and there were extra blankets available for the cold spring nights gets. Only two of the bunk beds had lockers underneath them and we were lucky to get them. Great staff. Super friendly and helpful.

    Can't fault the location — a very short walk from both the bus and boat terminals, and not much further to the old town. One downside — the wifi was a bit weak outside the reception area, almost unusable in the dorm rooms.

    Very Good

    Lovely hostel, old building but very cosy and made to socialise. Beds are a bit old but everything was very clean. There are not many toilets or showers for everyone so its a bit of a queue in the mornings. There are no locks on the dorms so make sure you put your stuff away, although the town seems very safe. Breakfast was lovely and the staff was sweet too. Didn't get the chance to interact much as I was there only for one night. Location is great, I would definitely recommend.

    Bring a lock. Front door remains unlocked and rooms don't have locks. There are old lockers under the beds but some can be accessed by lifting up the mattress. Obviously it seems to be a safe city so odds are you will be fine but just a heads up. Nice common area.

    The rooms were smelling terrible, in the sink were a lot of little bugs Then, in the morning I paid for the breakfast and because it was already 9:50 I asked if there’s still some left.. well when I got to the kitchen there was nothing left to eat! And they didn’t refill the food. I cannot recommend you stay here.
