Good hostel, clean, friendly staff. There's lockers in the rooms and a pretty good breakfast (toasts, cereal, coffee and pastry). The only thing I was disappointed about was the kitchen. There's no oven and only two little camping stoves.


the breakfast wasn't good, no eggs or cold cuts nor cheese.


A great price. I stayed in a room with a double and our own bathroom and television. It was fairly clean. The hostel has a nice breakfast. The staff is very accommodating.

I spent two days at Che Lagarto and it was amazing! The staff was beyond friendly and there was always someone cleaning, making me very confortble. The location is excellent (montevideo is pretty small, so it is hard to stay away from everything) and the breakfast was good (in terms of hostel breakfast). Would stay there again.


Rooms are spacious and clean, cenfral bus station is almost around the corner, staff is kind.


The staffs ware very kind, good localization but no hot water for more than 5 minutes to have a shower.


Nice place close to the bus station


Friendly and attentive staff! Very clean hostel! Located close to the bus station and main city bus line! It is possible to not take any taxis!


I think it is important an individual spotlight for each bed.


It is a nice hostel with fun people.
