Property Information:

Being strategically located a few blocks away from Downtown La Barra, which concentrates all youth activities in Punta del Este, Backpacker de La Barra Hostel & Inn allows you to combine the calm of a place plenty of green, surrounded by gardens and silence, with the proximity of the best discos and bars of Punta del Este, as well as a good circuit of quality restaurants for those who like the good food .

The Hostel offers the comfort of spacious shared rooms and modern bathrooms with hot water 24 hs. The Inn offers you spacious rooms with private bathroom, air conditioning and minibar.

As we do not accept groups over 4 people , Backpacker de La Barra Hostel & Inn is ideal for couples who want a romantic stay, combining relax and entertainment in contact with nature.

It is also ideal for small groups of friends who want to combine beach and night in a friendly atmosphere, quiet and respectful, with many common areas to meet other travelers and make new friends.

In high season, between Christmas and January 31 you will have holidays, night life, many people, top beaches, a lot of partiesand a lot of heat. In mid season, or December, February and March up to Eastern you will find a more distended and relaxed ambience, more day activities, beach, sun, swimming pool, walks, with good climate, heat and enough night activity, without being the madness of January. Punta del Este is in general more 'familiar'. After the Eastern and up to ends of November it is the low season and the calmness is complete. Silence, nature, solitude special for artists, writers, scientists and other persons who need a serene and placid ambience to concentrate on his own activities.

    We arrived at night, the hostel was empty. No one attending the doorbell, no one at the desk. Some girls explained that they had to play bell at the house next door. Once we entered the hostel was fine. A normal breakfast, but we had to wake the owner to prepare it. We had to wait for the owner when we went to pay and did not accept credit cards when hostelworld says they accept. Conclusion: The hostel is nice, not very good attention.
