Very good hostel in every way. Some noise from the street but if you check in to a hostel you should be used to people snoring anyway ;)
1 shower in a 10 bed dorm, kitchen hob is inadequate, it takes forever to even cook eggs. Brekki was decent. No atmosphere in the hostel.
We had a massive private double room here but despite its size there was very little in the room - no shelves or anywhere else to put clothes so everything either had to stay in your bag or go on the floor. The room also had a "kitchenette" with a microwave but there was nothing to use to cook your food in the microwave so it was a bit useless. Communal kitchen area was nowhere near big enough for the number of people and was poorly equipped. Staff were helpful though.
Wifi was never a problem. It is very close to the bus stop which was nice for morning day trips or late arrivals. It is a bit far from Ciudad Vieja (about 20-30 mins walking). The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a sitting area on the roof which gives you a decent view of the neighborhood. Breakfast was great! They cleaned every day it appeared. The kitchen is very small.
Good, descent hostel. Really close to the bus terminal. Really friendly and helpfull staff. Its a chain so the atmosphere is not as familiar and close compared to some others
good location if you are going to the bus terminal of tres cruzes, otherwise just a little off. the staff was very nice and the place is clean and confortable.
Good and clean hostel. Very close to the busstation. Security very good - gate outside and a keycard to the room. Would stay here again! Breakfast was basic.
Nice team on staff and they're very welcoming when it comes to impromptu asados!
Breakfast is brilliant! The staff were excellent, a little bit far out of town but we wanted to be close to the bus stop and it is a great location for that!
the hostel is very nice, the staff are all very friendly and nice and the place was very clean. the breakfast was nice, plenty of fruits, cereals, cakes and rolls. The location is close to the bus terminal, otherwise it is not too close to anything. there are buses to the beach or the old part of town or you can always walk, it is not that close but it is not that far either.
We had the best time at Che Lagarto Montevideo! The staff was really helpful, explained us how to get around, and warned us about the holidays (what was going to stay open, what should we visit before what time...) They also asked us about our experience, and were always happy to help... The private room is big, practical and very clean (and not expensive at all)! But also the other rooms are very clean and organized, people were very respectful, friendly... I could go on with more compliments!
