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!

This hostel was great - very clean, nice kitchen (well equipped, cleaned regularly), a wonderfuly modern and clean bathroom / showers. The lounge areas were cozy, there was a little outdoor patio for fresh air, and a great pool table! Everything was quite new and clean, which is always nice to have while traveling. Staff was great: welcoming and helpful.

Very nice place to stay in Montevideu. Very nice staff, all of them were very helpful when we needed. Very good commom area. The only thing to complain is regarding bathrooms, it is just have two bathrooms for many rooms, it is the only bad thing that i can say., but not that could avoid me to stay there again. Thanks all the staff!

Overall a really good experience at this hostel, the only downside was that the wifi was really bad. When everyone was trying to get on it you could not get on. However, the hostel did ha e two computers you could use. The breakfast was pretty bad in comparison to other, cheaper hostels I have stayed at in Uruguay.

I had a wonderful time at the hostel and it was mainly due to the other guests who where staying there. There were loads of Brazilians and we ended up making dinner all together and going out and sightseeing.

Since it was off-season, it had not that many guests. It was therefore pretty quiet. The bathrooms were one of the cleanest I have ever seen in a hostel. They were cleaned regularly throughout the day. The showers had hot water any time of the day, and there was always toilet paper. The matresses were comfy, although the pillows have an odd shape, one could have a good night sleep. The lockers on the other hand, could use an overhaul. They are cheap plywood and easy to open without any tools.

Loved staying in this delightful hostel in a great part of Montevideo - walking distance to many of the must-see places. Kind, considerate hospitable people. "Free" breakfast a little lacking, I'd happily pay a bit more for a better start to the day.

The staff were great. Really enthusiastic! The place is clean, tidy and quite funky. Mattresses were very new and clean. The kitchen has a great layout. The only downsides were the noise of the water tanks filling up everytime water was used and that one of the two showers were out of order.

Great place, to recommend! Very friendly, helpful staff. Clean bathroom and kitchen. 6-bed dorm equipped with air condition. Free pool billiard table in the lobby. To get to old town it took me about an 10 minute walk. Hoping to come back one day!

Hostel was centrally located. Rooms were big - only downside was that the room I stayed in was right outside the kitchen which tended to make it noisy in the morning. Bathrooms were also an issue as one required work while I was there so the signs were constantly being flipped back and forth for male and female. Otherwise, a great hostel!
