Great environment and a friendly staff made me stay an extra night. They were super helpful with helping me get to locations around the area.

I found Dolce Vita to be very stale, dark and cold. There weren't many empty beds but I didn't feel like there was much atmosphere. Beds are fairly comfortable but the 'locker drawers' at the bottom of the beds were broken and when I arrived the front door was wide open, and the rooms do not have locks. Seemed very unsafe. Kitchen wasn't all that good, and the gas stoves only operate on a very low heat so took AGES to cook anything. Only positive was fast reliable wifi and helpful staff


There's only one shower for guys but this didn't pose a problem for me.. The guys on the desk were great, giving me excellent advice for food and nightlife..


Really cosy place to stay in Montevideo! Beds are really comfy, staff is very helpfull and loads of fun! Definitely recommend this place! They have a lounge area downstairs in the basement which is an awesome place to chill out! The only downside I guess is that there are only 2 showers, but otherwise this place is perfect!


its a really good place, very kind staff, everything clean and confort


Really helpfull staff. Excellent cleanliness. Best value for money ever meet in South America.

A cool place, staff is nice. Security seems soso. Big issue is that there is only one washroom (1 male, 1 female) for the whole place. Only 1 shower for all the guys, and it wasn't really clean (accumulated dust). Not the end of the world, but would was a bit surprised.


nice hostel in good location, easy walk to city. Rooms o.k., but without window, can be slightly nopiisy if many people in common area. Very good breakfast, nice bread and marmalde
