Nice backpackers hostel with great location, good facilities, atmosphere and friendly stuff.
Staff very friendly and hostel is quite clean. Saw a cockroach in the bathroom one night, and the amount of mosquitos was absurd (bit that's the same all over Uruguay). The hostel is very well located, near the beach and with several restaurants and supermarkets around. Overall, it was a nice stay and I would definitely recommend it to other people.
Great hostel for hanging out and meeting friends.
Great staff, comfortable beds, very nice backyard, i would stay here again anytime

Great location near the beach, in an upscale neighborhood. Easy bus ride to the old town or to the bus station. Staff is very friendly and welcoming, and were very willing to help me resolve an issue with buying bus tickests.
Excellent place to stay! Close to the beach, great staff, everything you need in one place.
Decent place to stay but there was no atmosphere. Within walking distance to the waterfront which was really nice
Perfect location near the beach and bus stop to main town. Staff very helpful, kitchen clean, beds comfortable, showers hot and always people around the hostel. Defiantly recommend!!
Good base for beach but a bit out of the centre! Chilled hostel but staff at night make more noise than users! Not much doing in Montevideo though!
Cool hostel in the nicest part of town. Also close to the beach. Staff are really nice, and there is a nice atmosphere in the place. Decent breakfast too. The only issue was that there are only 2/3 showers for the whole hostel, my room was inside, so I had to walk through the back courtyard to get to and from the shower. Lockers are available in rooms.
Far from the centre but soooo close to Pocitos Beach! A quiet residential location, close to good restaurants. They rent bikes in the hostel, which is very handy and the back garden is so nice to have! Great, friendly staff - it was a fun stay we had there!
It was fantastic. The place had a great ambiance, friendly and attentive workers. Also the location was four blocks from the beach and nestled in a quiet suburb. The place was essentially a big victorian style house with the rooms that looked natural and welcoming, not the typical white walled hotel rooms I see a lot. I would return if I am in Montevideo again.
Friendly helpful staff. Clean and tidy facilities. Bus only a walk away and easy to use to get to old town. Beach is a few blocks walk away.
Nice and tranquil hostel, with a great garden and great staff! It is a bit located out of the old center, but close to the nicer beaches of town! Not a party hostel, average age is a bit higher than in most hostels. If you didnt come to party, than it is excellent. One thing: the amount of bathrooms was rather limited, in the morning there were long lines. Also, two shower heads in one cabin, not likely to be used at the same time.
Excellent hostel! Excellent location, excellent staff and a very good atmosphere to socialize.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Destino26. Dorms were spacious and clean and the beds were comfy and the bathroom facilities were really good. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were all really helpful with recommending things to do and places to see. The hostel is well located and there seemed to be lots of opportunity for tours, pub crawls etc. Only stayed for two nights but would have liked to extend my stay!

The personal was extremely kind and helpful. It was very clean, the breakfast was very good and the location is perfect to whom want some beach. Very close to Pocitos Beach, some restaurants near by. The only thing I see as an opportunity is the atmosphere, very calm. So for whom is looking for party I don´t think this is the place to go, but yes you will find people from everywhere there.
Exzellent beds, super location, awesome staff. What more do you want from a hostel?
nice hostel, really well equipped kitchen and comfy beds
Nothing really bad to say - just an average hostel with friendly staff. A bit far from the center, but close to the beach (if that is your thing).
