This place claims to be a backpacker friendly and indeed they have options for backpackers - a few rooms facing the street on the second floor. The room seemed to be fine and clean. I spend there only one night and got over 50 bedbug bites. This place should be sanitized!

This beautiful hotel accommodates all types of travelers, has a great roof-top view, and is centrally located. The budget rooms are what you pay for- and great for travelers who will be out seeing the sites rather than spending time in the room.

I have spent with my friends 2nights in this hotel. It is clean, most of the staff speaks english. But we had a problem with hit water in the shower..For a few nights to stay it is okey. Wifi works only near reception.

I reserved at Hostal Colonial based on TripAdvisor reviews. The experience was consistent with those reviews. I had breakfast in the little eatery attached to the hostal, but this was not included in my room rate. Dinners I took at nearby El Celler de Cler, which I highly recommend. The room was comfortable, but I must confess it took some... More

A very good central location with good cafes and restaurants very close. Rooms are a good size, bedding immaculate and the water is hot. Very clean and there are lots of outside sitting areas. Staff were helpful and smiley. Good value as well.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and enjoyed it very much! The rooms are cosy and are all around an interior court/garden. It was very quiet the nights we were there and we slept very well. It is close to the city center and good restaurants!

Our double room was basic but we appreciated the service at reception, the location in the center of Trujillo and the little courtyards of the building. It's located across from a colorful church and there are ample restaurants nearby.

The staff allowed us to return to our room after we had been sandboarding even though they had cleaned the room. The staff were constantly helpful and accommodating. The room itself was spacious and comfortable and although the fan didn't work it was replaced for a new one within minutes. Only bad thing about the hotel is the poor wi-fi... More

This is my second review on this hotel. Great staff, so helpful! Our car broke down, they took my husband to a mechanic that fixed it right away, the staff went out of their way to try to help us and to make us feel comfortable.

Pretty nice hostel but much more like a hotel, not really social but clean and friendly, well located near the main square with restaurants and shops around in the area. There's a tour company in reception if you want to check out any of the ruins nearby.

“Choose the ceter courtyard as the street rooms can be noisy at times.There is a Disco next door so if noise bothers you tell the front desk as they do have quieter rooms if needed.”
