There was only one bathroom but with the hostel not being full this wasn't an issue. They had a pool table, card games which was good. Breakfast was good toast and cereal and fruit. Cheap laundry facilities too.

Had a great couple of days there! The location was perfect for us and the staff were extremely helpful regarding things to do in the area and where to move onto next! Would recommend it to anyone!

The guests were definitely male dominated when we went, but security was good so I wasn't that worried about it. the male staff dude was also really helpful about telling us stuff to do and just being a generally friendly dude. Overall, while it isn't the cheapest in south america standards, Caballo loco was probably one of the nicer hostels I have stayed at. It was really clean, and had a beautiful mural of a indigenous man smoking a pipe and the smoke turning into a horse. Def recommend

What a fantastic hostel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. And the atmosphere of the hostel was great. It's set up in a way that makes it easy meet fellow travelers and make new friends. Thanks for a great experience!

The caballo loco was great!! The staff was so helpful with ideas of where to go and what to do, and they spoke excellent English (convenient for me since my Spanish is so-so). It felt very safe and the breakfast was plentiful

Male staff very friendly, female not so much. Good position (next to plaza cagancha) and clean dorm rooms. Atmosphere wasn't fantastic, the hostel mostly seemed empty.

Unfortunately there were only two others staying in the hostel at the time I was there due to off-season. But the staff is great and helps you with everyhing.

I booked this hostel by a recommendation of a friend, but I didn't like the atmosphere at all. This hostel has a very few number of bathroom facilities. They should offer an event's schedule for spending the night there.

When we went there at the end of the season the place was pretty empty, but I can imagine that when it's busier it has a good atmosphere, with a large open plan communal area with pool table. All of the facilities seem brand new (comfortable beds!) though more bathrooms would be ideal. The hostel is a short walk from the historic centre and makes a good base to explore Montevideo. I'd stay again if I was in town.

Hostel Located in the heart of the old city. Walking distance to main attraction points (10 to 20 mins). Easy to find, if you search for the number, cause the sign plate is very small above the door. Common area, OK and kitchen as well. Staff in the morning very helpful. The girls in the night not so much. Bathroom small. I guess if the hostel is full. it would be complicated. Not so clean as well. Overall an OK location.

This hostel was nice and comfortable. It wasn't really like what it said in the reviews though. I didn't meet a lot of people and the environment was a bit boring (but not the hostels fault). The male staff members were helpful, but the female staff weren't very friendly to me. The facilities at this hostel are nice, lots of places to sit and big kitchen. There were a lack of power points though. Overall a good hotel, I recommend it.

It has only been open for about 5 months and is already falling apart a bit with locker doors, taps and hooks all looking as if they won't last the Winter however it is new and it makes the world of difference if you staying in hostels for an extended time. Mattress's and linen are all basically brand new, kitchen utensils are well stocked and the dirt other hostels tend to have has not yet been ingrained in every corner just yet. The building is incredible and we enjoyed our stay, would recomm

Nice and helpful staff. They explain and describe you everything during checkin and can arrange things like airport shuttles. The kitchen is very well equiped and clean. Breakfast is uruguayan standard and nice. The rooms have cozy and stable beds. Lockers are in the rooms. In the big and open chill area we met nice people and had a good time with a beautiful atmosphere. from outside the hostel entrance is very inconspicuous. We first ran past..... ;)
