This is a terrific place. The hosts, Monica and Miguel, are extremely friendly and speak perfect English. The hostel is in a wonderful location in quiet, attractive countryside, but is not difficult to get to by bus and taxi. I went on two long walks and saw an amazing variety of birds - it was wonderful. I stayed in 10 places in just over two weeks in Uruguay, and undoubtedly it was my stay at El Galope that I enjoyed the most. It's wonderful to get out of town and stay somewhere like this.

I have been recommending this place to everyone, and loved it so much I brought my parents back to see it. Monica and Miguel are so inviting and really make you feel at home. The food is incredible and the horse riding lessons are a lot of fun.

Outstanding. A quiet, super friendly place, out of the city, half an hour from Colonia’s deck, deep into the open fields of Uruguay. Miguel and Monica were more than kind and helpful to my girlfriend and me. Sauna and Pool makes weather perfect. Monica’s meals are really unique. Best Fondue I ever had, and very good wine too. I would go and stay again any time we had the chance. Un placer vecinos, nos vemos pronto! Nahuel and Antonella (Argentina).-

Great place if you love peace, quiet and nature! The owners really love their animals and share that with all their guests while showing them their great hospitality.

Wonderful location and great staff! We went for horseback riding during a few hours and Miguel is safety minded to a level far above your general place for "cabalgatas" in Uruguay/Argentina. Therefore a great place to start if you don't have that much experience with horses.
