Property Description

Colonia, the historic town you cannot miss during your trip to Uruguay! Explore the historical stone-cobbled town, filled with flowers, vines, museums and plazas. Viajero Colonia is the biggest house in town, with an inner patio and a laid-back vibe.

Stay in shared dorms and meet people from all over the world, or if you prefer, sleep in a private bedroom. During the day, explore the old city and head to the docks to watch the sunset over the ‘Silver River’ (Rio de la Plata). In the afternoons, come back to the hostel and enjoy our famous ‘asados’ (BBQ’s) in the patio and meet people from all over the world. Later, enjoy a drink in the bar and enjoy our activities in the hostel!

Completely fine for a nights stay if you’re passing through Colonia. But felt a little neglected and was missing some basic things. The dorm rooms didn’t have any curtains or privacy around the beds.
