The El Galope Farm Hostel is a restful stopover in Colonia's countryside, 50 minutes away from Colonia city by bus on the way to Montevideo. Leave the city and come to the country to relax.

The hostel provides and accommodation in double and twin rooms only. Facilities include free breakfast, sauna, fireplace, self-catering kitchen open from 12 to 6 pm, bicycles, heating in all bedrooms and common areas. The hostel has no Wi-Fi and TV to ensure a good rest. Receptionists speak Spanish, English, French and a little German. The hostel is using solar energy, has a source of pure drinking water and all the meals are cooked from natural products from the hostel’s garden and the region.

Except from peace and tranquillity in a beautiful countryside you can experience: horseback riding and a bike trip.

Budget meal tip

Buy your own food, make it there. Wine bottle cost 10usd and pilsner 5usd. You cannot bring your own alcohol without hiding it..
