Really good group of people during our stay, plus a decent location, being a 10 minute walk from La Plaza de Independencia. Dorms were fine and there was lots of space to relax inside of the hostel, which had a cool interior.
Nice place, really well located a block from 18 De Julio. Clean, spacious although only 2 ladies showers but I never had to wait. Unfortunately there is working gone on outside the hostel at the mo which may disturb those sleeping in the front dorms. WiFi good when you can get connected but connection problems when many in hostel. Good breakfast.
Cozy hostel with helpful staff and perfect if you want to meet new people. I stayed 1 night and basically I talked with half the people there thanks to the sociable atmosphere the hostel conveys. Decent location for Montevideo, everthing you need around. I liked that the sheets and rooms where clean. standard breakfast. I suggest you rent the bikes they have for really cheap fees and take a ride along the coast line.

Great hostel. Some of the staff members were excellent but others were average. Great location!
Good hostel. I didn´t really liked the rooms for what you´re paying. Messy and crowded and only a few sockets for 12 people. Another thing was the lack of atmosphere. No music and no activities. The games room was fun though. And breakfast was nice.
Pontos fortes: bom atendimento, localização (perto do centro velho e rodoviária) Pontos fracos: banheiro: longe dos quartos e sujo. Dicas: colocar nos banheiros espaço para guardar (shampoos, sabonetes, etc), dentro do chuveiro e um espelho grande tb.
Only 2 shower cabins and toilets for ladies, long queuing time especially in the morning. Nice patio for people to hang out, beer and water prices are steep at this hostel, cozy but small rooms, no AC only fan but atmosphere was awesome!
Loved the pool table and atmosphere here. Very chill and great for meeting people. The breakfast is good and the wifi works, beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean. Would stay here again. If you want to party and stay out late or go to the beach, this isnt the best area though. Depends what you want. I had a quick stop over and this place was perfect for me.
Loved the super chill vibe of the place the best. The music in the main room was absolutely stellar: from 60s jazz to Mogwai - couldn't have been better. Very easy to meet people in the main room, and the huge ceilings / lighting made it a great place to chill out.
Great location and the best beds we've had so far on our trip! Staff were so helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Overall I am pretty satisfied with my stay here. The breakfast is good and the location is perfect to explore the city and to get there from the bus terminal.
Really nice hostel, Laura was very helpful. The place feels quite new and had everything we needed, kitchen, hot water, air con in the dorms, nice breakfast, central location, even a pool table. The place is clean too! Would stay here again
Cool hostel, great atmosphere, helpful staff, good location. Would recommend.
Great hostel overall. Perfect location, great attentive staff, spotlessly clean, nice breakfast, nice atmosphere. Can't recommend enough.
Spacious 8 bed dorm, nice communal areas and a good sized kitchen. Bathrooms were clean, although not many showers. Average breakfast. Biggest gripe was the wifi which worked intermittently for some and not for others.
I've had a lot of fun at Caballo Loco. Good atmosphere and easy to meet other travellers. Staff was nice and helpful and the facilities were tidy and clean. I'd love to come back!
The hostel was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The breakfast was decent and the 8 bed dorm was a good size. the location is excellent. The staff could provide a bit more information about the city but they were very nice. They don't allow you to bring in there own drink and force you to buy there's which is somewhere in between supermarket and pin prices.
One dark haired lady worked there named Laura seems to act disabled after her bike accident. When she recovers from her injury, excuses will she give for her inability? Don't worry, help is at hand via nano and luciandro. Great guys for help.
Really nice hostel with great pool table! Lots of common spaces and wifi pretty quick. 8 bed dorm was nice with a balcony but could do with reading lights! Great central location and staff helpful with what to do and where to go.
Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff, great showers, always had paper towel in the bathrooms. Easy walking distance from the old city, a block from busses that can take you anywhere. Air conditioning was clutch (when it was turned on)
