I can't imagine a breakfast without milk!! It happened one day... maybe an accident, but... an issue to solve.

A nice little hostel, located slightly away from the main street. Lots of activities advertised daily adn the staff were really helpful. A good courtyard for mingling and a nice sized kitchen for cooking meals. The breakfast was nice, but you needed to get there earlier rather than later in case things ran out!

A nice friendly hostel in a period building with original featurtes and a courtyard that is a great place to chill and drink a few beers with new friends in the sun. I rented a bike from reception, they are new bikes and a great way to get around especially for cycling along the seafront.

I fell in love with el viajero instantly. The staff were extremely welcoming and kind. Santiago and Fredrico were the best! Very helpful and fun to hang with. Santiago took me and a few others out on the town for what turned out to be and epic night. It's a must stay in montevideo

the kitchen was too small for the number of people who tried to use it and only one ring on the stove top worked on arrival. To be fair a new oven was installed the next day. Floor tiles in the shower area were very slippery when wet and guests were meant to wipe the floor which of course meant they didn't so the floor was often dangerous to walk on. Staff were incredibly helpful and had good local knowledge

After having a bad experience in a previous hostel I decided to book my next stay with Viajero knowing how reliable they are, and they didn't disappoint. Good value for money, easy to meet people and always events going on in the hostel. The staff are also very approachable - Juan was particularly friendly and made myself and other travellers feel very welcomed.
