I do not really understand the critics of other users.
For us the hostel was very nice! At the check-in you get linen and even a towel for free, which is not common for South America or Uruguay! The staff is friendly and speaks spanish and english, so there is no need to misunderstand anything. The hostel seems to be quite new und is very modern designed. The dorms and the bathrooms were perfectly clean. Nice and hot showers with perfect pressure. Each bed has a reading LED-lamp (also not common for SA). The beds are good and stable. Each room has a modern and silent air conditioning. The breakfast was delicious and uruguayan standard. Breakfast outside in the garden!
We can`t really say something about the atmosphere because there were less people (low season). Offering activities is not necessary because Colonia is too small. Other hostels don't offer either.
Just the computer was veeery slow.
If you get to know other south american hostels you will love this one ;)
