It's ok. Staff is quite nice. You have a complete kitchen and several common areas, such as the terrase, lounge and dinning yard. The days I stayed there it was really quiet. Bad things is that you can hear people upstairs or in the other rooms. Also, just two showers for the whole hostel (one for girls, another for guys) can be a problem. Breakfast was ok: coffee, bread, jam, juice. It's a nice place, and seems to be a little bit cheaper than other hostels around, so take that into account.


Dolce Vita is in a central location, most attractions are walking distance. Staff are friendly and quite helpful with tips on how to see the best of Montevideo. The hostel is in a pretty cool building with a rooftop. The facilities are decent, could do with some renovations though. Would stay here again.


Amazing place! I've had 10 great days at Dolce Vita Hostel. Its a very good place to stay. Clean, safe, silent, good people and lots of attractions near by. Tano, Emi and all the staff are very helpful all the time. They will explain all the city and make sure you're going to find some fun. You can walk around town or rent a bike in the hostel. Enjoy the terrace with a night full of stars. I just loved it!


great staff, good location and nice atmosphere. Only one shared bathroom and two toilets for men. Place need some sereious cleaning.


It s a nice hostel, i just didn't like the breakfast


Nice hostel to stay a few days. Good facilities and very clean. Compared to other places we've stayed in South America, it's quite expensive, especially as breakfast is so basic and there isn't any really comfortable common area. Italian guy on reception was very helpful. Wifi was very good and it is close to a supermarket and a few local restaurants.


Overall a wonderful hostel to stay at with an incredible staff, they were so helpful with everything that I needed. The only thing that I think would make this hostel spectacular is having more than one shower for all of the boys. That's the only real complaint I have, though.
