It was amazing! A very kind and helpful staff, very clean and confortable, very close to everything. A beautiful place, felt very much like home, thank you!


Very nice place. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Looked after us during our visit. We were feeling sick wit the flu and they gave us extra heaters for our bedroom. They also upgraded is to the best room free for one night as a present. Very helpful with info about the city.


Very friendly staff. They were accommodating with my reservation change and flexible with the checkout time. Very reliable wi-fi. Rooms were a bit cold though.


Was ok. Located in the old part of the city near some good sights, etc but gets kind of shady at night. Staff were friendly, place was clean, breakfast was ok. Would stay there again but not before looking for somewhere else first.


I enjoyed my stay. It's a pretty calm place, so maybe not the place to go if you're looking for a wild time. It was a comfortable stay and I would return there.


Originally booked room w/ twin beds was not available, so we were put into a different room with two bunk beds (yet no one else was put into the room). W-Lan worked poorly in the rooms. Had to leave quite early in the morning and when we wanted to leave, the door was locked, so we could not get out. Fortunately, the owner came back so we could get out. The toilets/ showers have doors that shut poorly. Yet good location, nice staff, clean and new. Overall an okay stay.


Very friendly and hospitable people here. It's a relaxed atmosphere, so easy to rest anytime. Nice breakfast too. If you stay during the slow season it might be possible to have the whole dorm to yourself!

Great hostel! Really good kitchen and super nice and helpful staff. It is in the center of ciudad vieja and has some nice restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance.


Really good location (10 minutes from Mercado Puerto and 6 blocks from Plaza Independencia - close to bus stop), really nice hosts (lent us an umbrella in the rain and called taxis for us every time we needed one) and very chilled out hostel. The double room was clean and well-kept. Breakfast was standard to good (bread, cheese, ham, fruits). If you want to sightsee rather than go to the beach, this is where you want to stay.


Nice place and nice staff.


I can't say anything bad about this hostel because it was fine. The room was clean, the showers clean,kitchen fully equipped and easy to use and the staff were friendly and very helpful. However we were there over Carnaval weekend and when asked about events they couldn't tell us anything, when we asked about restaurants again they couldn't recommend any...all in all it seemed they knew nothing of Montevideo. Saying that they were lovely people and helpful with things in the hostel!

This is a new and attractive hostel, right on Sarandi Boulevard, the pedestrian street through the middle of Ciudad Vieja, the scenic Old Town. The staff is extremely helpful, beds and rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful.
