Kitchen is big and nice. Brekfast is ok, like it usually is in Uruguay. Only 2 showers and 2 bathrooms for girls. Crowded in the morning. The rooms are big and the locker is big. Need you own lock, they don't have one to borrow. It feld really safe. Common area is big, but people are doing they own things... Location is good. Easy to find and easy to walk around the area. Wifi works sometimes better and sometimes not that good.

Overall pretty great hostel, but it could improve a few things. Clean the bathrooms more often, they were pretty dirty and smelly. Invest in some new pots and pans, handles seemed to be missing on lots of them.

We stayed here for only one night. The beds were a little bit uncomfortable. Our bunk bed in the girls dorm didn't even had a stair to climb to the upper bed. the breakfast was enough but not vary tasty. The staff were ok, sort of there but not incredibly helpful. The best part about this hostel it's it perfect location, the common spaces and the cleanliness.

Good kitchen and dining area, dorm was next to the outside area so a bit loud. Good common areas, with pool table and sofas, excellent location 15min walk from centre of downtown, not far from places to eat and supermarkets. Possibly needed one more toilet. Would definitely recommend...

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.

The staff were friendly and made you feel welcomed right as you walked in. Mariano really made the effort to help you get situated. I managed to organize a ride from the airport to the hostel which was haste free and made my life incredibly easy.

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.

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
