Will definitely return again when passing through Montevideo. Calm and comfortable atmosphere in October, perfect to unwind after lengthy travel.
We enjoyed the friendly staff and good location (in Ciudad Vieja, 5-10 min walk from many sights), as well as the deli meat sandwiches for breakfast. Only negatives were cramped bathrooms and you have to track down one of the owners to unlock the front door every time you leave or return. Overall would definitely recommend.
We spent 3 nights in the hostel. Staff was very nice, they speak Spanish, German and English. The hostel was clean, but the dorm smelt really bad and moldy. Beds were ok, but very short. I'm 1,67 tall and fitted perfectley in. No idea how people taller than that are supposed to fit in those beds. Bathrooms were very clean. Breakfast was ok. I'm not sure about the neighbourhood. Found it ok, but it's very close to the harbour, and those neighbourhoods are usually not the safest.
