Reviewed 21 December 2011

Rather large but quiet hostel in central Colonia, on the main street. 24/7 reception with very helpful staff, of which several also speak English. There are several quite spacious twin, quadruple and dorm rooms, with real walls and a good feeling of privacy. The beds are not new but in good condition, bedlinen are fresh, and overall the hostel is tidy with clean
bathrooms where everything works, and with hot water. There is one large patio for socialising, and a smaller inner one for laundrying and drying. A large room on the backside of the patio holds a big TV, 2 Internet computers (which could be renewed) and eating tables.

Aside from the worn-out computers, this hostel´s only goat is the kitchen. Despite two big and clean fridges and dito gas stoves, the selection of pots and pans is haphazard and incomplete, which really limits kitchen usabiliy. The breakfast is fresh white bread, butter, jam, and hot coffee/cocoa/tea. For the price, 700 UR (twin room, Dec 2011) and 15% HI discount, the place is great for longer stays, especially if you don´t fancy cooking.

Room Tip: Rooms 11-13 are the best, nr 4 is noisy

Stayed in a private room, was pretty cold but clean and comfortable. They have bikes that you can hire which is a nice way to see the town. And you are only a short walk from the historic centre of this beautiful Uruguayan city.

We were here for 2 days in August, dead of winter. 4 bathrooms seemed plenty, but it is off season. Husband got a full hot water shower, I used a different bathroom (and *pressumably* a different hot water tank) and only got 1 minute of hot water. US$19 per person for a double was expensive but that seems to be the case in Colonia. The rooms are big but could definitely use some heating. The blankets provided do more than enough to keep you warm but without heating the room is not somewhere to hang out. Pillows were miserable foam rectangles, but reception provided 4! supplementary pillows when asked.
Didn't make use of kitchen/lounge area too much but it was nice to have computers, a tv and a fireplace.
Overall, would recommend.

I stayed in The Colonial for 4 days during the off-season and had a dorm to myself. It was cosy comfortable and clean. I thought that it was expensive and the spartan breakfast was a disgrace. Never in my travels have I been given such an abomination under the guise of "breakfast". Saying that there is free internet, bicycles and lots of information.

They are located right on the main street, just a few blocks from everything. A two minute walk will have you in the heart of old town. Once past reception you will find yourself in a beautiful courtyard surrounded by the doorways to their charming rooms. The staff were all very helpful (and bilingual). The inexpensive breakfast was personally delivered. Don't pass up the free bike rental. Thanks, Hostel Colonial.
