Contraluz is just a nice place if you are in Montevideo only in order to smoke weed. Staff is nice but the atmosphere is very strange... Breakfast is very poor. They have the worst shower I have seen in my life : no pressure !! It's a shame because they try to do something nice but I felt very bad in this place.


Great location, very close to the ramblas. It's a really quiet hostel, so if you are looking for a party, its not the right place to stay... Breakfast was ok: white bread, cereal, jam, dulce de leche, some oranges, tea and coffee. Great beds and linens. About the bathrooms: very poor water pressure, no place to hang clothes and towel, no hand soap. Sleeping in dorms next to the kitchen might be difficult, guests tend to talk loud until 2am...
