It s clean very close to terminal and buses station. It s a littel far off from ciudad viaje. Lobby is very small and so is the kitchen, can t cook. Staff was nice even if they blast the music, they are helpful. Internet is fine, bed and sheets also.


good staff very kind and polite hotel is cheap and clean i recommand it no problem


Good hostel. Nice staff, friendly people. I would come back there.


Too much weed around in general, but the hostel staff is very professional. Could have played a bit more laidback music before 18:00 - the bathroom inside the room was pretty awful (No toilet seat, water on the floor, no real fan). Upper beds a bit unsecure - just a tiny safety grid. Breakfast very good - location a bit sketchy. Locals that come by at night who sometimes not have the best intentions. Decent for a night - but not the place to stay for a week.


The location is good if you want to be near the bus station. The wifi does not work very well in the rooms.


Really good social hostel with friendly staff. Facilities did leave something to be desired - broken lockers, beds and no hot water were all experienced. Otherwise good for a few nights stay.


The hostel is new, cleaning is excellent and staff is helpful and friendly. Maybe the kitchen is a bit too small for the number of people who need it! The breakfast is excellent, but there is too much haste to remove it, before the end of the time in which is served! The location is pretty distant from the center, but close to the terminal... Finally the water pressure is always very low everywhere and especially in showers, in which often miss the hot water... But in general is a good hostel...


They say they have wifi in the whole building but it really only works for anyone on the first floor. There is not much space in the common area. Only about 10 people can be sitting at once otherwise you have to hangout in your room. The check-in time is a common complaint with this hostel chain. They won't let you in your room tell 2pm even though checkout is at 10am. Luckily they let you leave your bags while you wait. Overall good! Good breakfast included and rooftop tables are cool!

Many people hanging out in the lobby so it was very loud. You hear all the traffic from the street. The shower had bad water pressure and the toilet kept running so it wouldn't flush


Rude staff, overpriced, worst hostel I have staying in South america


I choose this hostel cause it was the closest from the bus terminal, but it is on a big street so there is a lot of noise at night, not that good to sleep. The common area is nice and the dorm quite spacious, but they have to repair some things as for example the lockers. The kitchen is pretty small, but they have a good breakfast in the morning.


Check your reservation because the system and the staff can be confused about that!


Very small common area and kitchen. Although it was just opened, the bunks in the dorm were shoddy and the lockers were falling apart. The staff was very nice.

Dear guest, We appreciate your opinion about our hostel. It helps us to improve. Regarding the complaint about the bunks and the lockers in the dorm, we are resolving what happened. Yours sincerely Che Lagarto Hostel Montevideo.


The entire staff is awesome and knowledgable, even though its a brand new hostel. The facilities are still under a little bit of work to finish up, but everything is clean and nice. I imagine the terreza on the 5th floor will be a great party come summer time. Muy Bueno Onda, lo que pasa a che lagrto! Y Martin es uno mejor muchacho, muchas ayudas.
