    Brilliant hostel, hard to find fault to be honest. The beds are really comfy and obviously new mattresses. Decent kitchen and lounge area and hammock etc in garden. Courtyard in the centre is lovely. The food at the restaurant is not great however - the nachos are just Doritos plus mayo!

    Great place to spend the night in Colonia! Quick walk to the ferry and bus station, 5 min away from the main attractions in the historic part of town, very comfy beds and kitchen and two big yards that are great for meeting people and have a drink (they have a bar as well!). Bathrooms could've been cleaner. Highly recommended!

    Perfect location and super awesome staff. Nice social areas and comfy sofa. The hostel was less than half full while I was there and there was a constant line for the bathrooms which got frustrating, I can’t imagine what it would be like if it was full. The 10 bed dorm has an en-suite which I highly recommend as you will have to wait less. I think the kitchen could also get quite hectic if the place was full. That said I like the atmosphere, the staff make it very friendly and welcoming.

    Cute hostel in a great location close to the sea and not far from the bus stop/buquebus terminal. Overall experience was fine, staff were helpful and I met awesome people here! I would just have liked the bathrooms to be a bit cleaner, as the floor was always wet

    The positives are comfortable beds and good location. Sadly that’s it. Perhaps it’s because it was off season, but the hostel was dead, the staff disinterested and the repair works interfered with our stay. The bathrooms didn’t have working lights (fun showing in pitch black) and weren’t cleaned even though dirty cleaning materials were left everywhere. The kitchen is also so hard to use if you like cooking. The oven/ hob blows out due to a broken window and there are few utensils.
