Hi Thanks to you guys for staying here, we really enjoyed your company. Have a good trip and cheers from everybody here!


Amazing staff who were really helpful and also fun to hang out with, not intimidating like a lot of hostel staff can sometimes be. Good kitchen, fun bar, close to everything definitely recommend, only downfall was the BBQ we paid for one night....15 usd for some potatoes tomatoes and lettuce and a piece of fatty meat. Other than that couldn't complain!

Hi, Good to hear you you liked the hostel and we are sorry about the food. Reality is that our bbq is done the Uruguayan way which means at least .5 kilo of meat which also includes the fatty part. Thanks for leaving your comment and we wish you an awesome continuation of your trip! Saludos from the complete staff.


Met some really cool people here, all the staff are good smily people and always happy to give you their time. Steve is a dude, who would have thought you can put mango in a truffle?


This hostel is unfortunately much over rated because of a few nice rooms (which are pretty nice). However, if you get stuck in the terrible shacks outside (both dorms and privates), be prepared for mosquitoes, mold on the ceilings, only a small window and general unpleasantness. The staff are generally friendly, but as they are pretty much exclusively foreigners, they can only tell you about the touristy activities that they sell.
