The Trip Hostel was awesome. You could not beat the location to the beach, the bus station or the restaurants. I will definitely be back next time I'm in Punta Del Este. Good vibes all around and great to meet so many cool people from around the world. Thanks to Marcelo for hooking it up!

This place is pretty rough. Pack everyone in to huge dorms that feel like a prison. Smelly, noisy,dark, the ceiling leaked when it rained in our room and they had to put a couple of buckets out. 2 showers for too many people. The staff were really unhelpful mostly and no one working the bar so was much quicker for me to actually go to the shop to buy any alcohol. Oh and the staff basically try and crack on with the all the girls. So if you like that, go here!

Great staff and great hostel!!! The breakfast was ok, but you could always talk to the staff about places to go or anything like that. The music in the hall was quite loud, but that didn't make a difference in the sound inside the room.

Nice atmosphere, staff are great and it's near everything. Besides the three bed tower I had to climb to sleep and the broken/occupied lockers (I didn't get one), the hostel is pretty cool and We even had a dinner for New Year's Eve. Thank you guys for everything, specially Marcelo! Peace out

Rooms looked like a "favela". Hostel should have been really strict about noisy guests!

Great hostel manager and staff. A couple of long-termers who are actually quite welcoming. The location of this hostel is fantastic, close to both the fingers beach as well as the main beach and casino. The security is a bit lax, but then again, how dangerous is Punta del Este? People walk home at 2 am with casino winnings. Cleanliness is something that needs to be worked on and the facilities are rudimentary. Upstairs has triple height bunks, which is the first I've seen. Fantastic atmosphere.

The Trip Hostel is near to everything, and has graffitis on the walls, is very colorful, and comfortable (you can see pics on their instagram). But they don't have any maps, and had some difficulties to help us around...

A very nice hostel with some amazing staff, especially Marcelo who was super helpful with any questions I had. The atmosphere is fun, with good music. And the decoration of hostel is very unique and interesting. Maybe not the best place if you want quiet nights, but amazing if you're looking for a fun atmosphere, good music, and good people.

Very friendly staff, and good location close to the beach and busstation. The dormrooms are a little small, not enough space for all the luggage and the wifi did not work very well. But considering the price per night (cheap) a very good hostel!

Best hostel experience I've had to date. Awesome atmosphere, perfect location and amazing staff. Marcelo really goes above and beyond to make sure all guests are having a good time! ended up spending the rest of my time here instead of moving further east like i had planned.

The Trip Hostel is like a charismatic ex-boyfriend, you're charmed by his carefree, pot-smoking attitude and fun ways so you overlook certain things. Like an ex-boyfriend, this hostel is good for a one night stand when you need somewhere convenient, cheap and guaranteed to be a good time, but you know he's not marriage material.

Marcelo and the other staff were really good. Helpful and created a great environment. Good vibes and location - got absolutely nailed by mosquitoes and there was a seedy old bloke there the whole time. Recommended
