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


Had a good time and would definitely recoment the hostel. It had a very good athmosphere and friendly staff!


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)


Staff were a bit lax (didn't get sheets for our beds despite asking 2 different people), but who can blame them in sunny beautiful Monetevideo. About what you can expect for the price you pay.


Probabaly one of the best hostels i stayed at in south america! Stayed in an 8 bed dorm and at first thought it would suck, but the beds were great and there wad AC in the room. The staff was great and helped with everything. It wad aleays quiet between midnight to 8 am just like the rules imply. The only down side is tgere is only 2 bathroom/shower facilities per gender and yet so many guests and rooms. Should have more. Though they are the best showers! Overall amazing hostel in a great area!


Incredibly rude and entitled staff. Also no ladders for top bunk making me trip and hurt myself. Would not stay again.
