The staff at this hostel were extremely friendly and I had an absolutely fantastic time staying here. Some friends of the staff come to the hostel to social, which provides a great atmosphere.

The location was great and some of the staff was really awesome! However... The woman at the front desk barely gave us a tour of where things are and had us make our own beds. Storage under the beds smelled strongly of urine and the rest of the hostel had an unpleasant odor as well. We were woken up each morning at around 6:30 by staff sitting outside our room talking loudly and with cell phone notifications at full volume. Staff was also using two of the three outlets available in our room.

Fun hostel, stays loud till late at night (sometimes there's live music!). Most of the rooms are adjacent to the courtyard so it's not ideal if you're looking for peace and quiet for sleeping. But the staff is super nice, especially the girl with the glasses! You can rent old bicycles. The kitchen is pretty nice. The bathrooms are a little dingy and the girls bathroom was always out of soap.

Good. Not really the time to go to Uruguay though, a bit quiet.

Staff was really good, facilities weren't as great as I expected. Only one outlet in a room for 6.

El Viajero provides an incredible experience to it's guests. The atmosphere is cool and relaxed, the breakfast is good and the bar area is great for meeting people and making new friends.

Is in a nice old building, yet the bar is literally located right alongside all the rooms, so it is very difficult to sleep. Didn't have early check in either even when beds were ready.

Excellent staff and the atmosphere!! Always helpful and friendly. They even organized a lovely home cooked group dinner and acoustic guitar performance at the hostel. We very much enjoyed our stay!

Good stay here for one night. Booked a 6 dorm and were the only ones in it which was a bonus for space and privacy. If you are looking for a quiet place to chill, note the bar is open til 1am (think loud talking and music) so probably not your best choice. Great internet which was a bonus.
