Staff were pretty unfriendly, wifi didn't work for 2 out of 3 days we were there, breakfast was a huge let down and bar was supposed to close at 3am but we had to listen to a group of guys drinking and making a heap of noise all night until breakfast when they finally went to bed and no staff member told them to be quiet. In a good location but wouldn't stay there again.

Pros: Decent breakfast, bar, location Cons: Disinterested & unknowledgeable staff (How much does a taxi to the airport cost? No idea. Whats a good bar in town thats not too expensive? No idea.), flies everywhere, missing remotes in my room, generally sour vibe and lastly.. expensive.

Safety is an issue, anyone could just get inthe hostel and enter the dorms, which have no keys. I stayed at dorm 15, right beside the common kitchen and the dorm would always smell like fried eggs and rests of food. Its a good hostel if you are coming to Punta for the night life, there is loud music and a busy bar until 2-3am. Not really clean, but still far from the dirtiest hostel I've ever been...

This hostel is very comfortable and is in a very good ubication, near la brava brach, one of the best in the city. The staff was really nice they helped me a lot.

The location is great, close to most of the places to visit. Punta del Este in general is a very expensive place to visit and consume and I think that reflects in the hostel as well.

Thanks for your coment. We`re sorry for the barbacue, we ask for a minimum of pax to join to the bbq and that day we didn`t reach it. Hope you had a nice stay instead of that. Regards El Viajero Staff

The hostel is OK, though with not much atmosphere -- and with the beer-drinking, late-partying, loud-speaking crowd that this kind of city seems to attract.

Thanks for your comment . You were here durig the off season maybe that`s why you dindn`t find as much party as you want. Cheers El Viajero Staff

Good solid hostel near the main beach in Punta del Este. Nevertheless the hostel attracted a weird crowd of pensioners, families and us, so it is hard to rate atmosphere. The set up is, however, very good for when a younger crowd is there and the breakfast spread is one of the best I've seen.

Hostel is not as easy to find as they announce on hostelworld as the name of the street changed. Hostel itself was nice. Not far from the bus station - not far from the beach either. As for party people: we didn´t find any pubs/clubs around the hostel and it takes some minutes to walk down town.

Only the room has very strong smell of mildew and the lighting is bad

Great location. We stayed on a double room ensuite which was pretty spacey and clean with a TV and a AC. Average breakfast, nice staff. Good value for money.
