The staff at ukelele is really nice and the building is amazing. Rooms are big enough , beds are comfortable. Its been a plessure staying here.


Would recommend simply. Excellent breakfast which seems to be difficult to get in South America. Nice pool, beds are comfy and good underbed lockers. Can´t really fault the hostel on any aspect.


Best hostel ever in Montevideo ! Respect

Positive: showers, good sorted kitchen and a nice communial area at the Pool. Fantastic Building in a bad neighberhood. The Morning Shift Girl was rude and played Way too loud Music at 8 am. I would Not mind a big Party - but the Hostel was almost empty and all guest Where sleepung! The afternoon Shift Girl didn't know about the City and offered us Bikes for a Crazy Price. The evening Shift was very nice though!


The hostel was really beautiful with a old fashioned style that i love it. You can take some photos of it. The staff was a bit cold. It is good located also.


one of the best hostels I've stayed at in South America! wonderful staff, great common areas... I felt at home and can only highly recommend this place!


The hostel is a beautiful mansion and the receptionists are very helpful and friendly. The shower was sooo good! Only down point: very hot room.


I had a good time staying here. The hostel has a good atmosphere and the common space encourages to mingle and hang out. The staff is really nice. The location is ok, but right on the border to one of the few dangerous neighborhoods in Montevideo. I was careful and didn't have any problems.


It was a nice hostel. Everything was OK. Only at night some people were a bit loud.


Only stayed there one night and we had a good party at night. The swimming pool/backyard area is great to meet other travelers. It is a pretty building, a little noisy. Maybe not for someone who wants tranquility.


Awesome hostel. The pool made it meet people and and the staff were amazing. Definitely recommend for future travelers and thanks for the great hospitality!


Amazing hostel, really beautiful, great bathrooms and nice staff. Also has a good location.


It´s a good hostel, staffs are great and close to the city center. The only problem is that there are just one fridge, and when the hostel is full it´s quite impossible to get a free place.


Ukulele Hostel is very nice and especially the common rooms and the pool are fantastic! However, the neighborhood is not quite so nice. I got robbed right around the corner from the hostel in daylight and met a girl who had had exactly the same experience one week earlier. So be careful when you walk around in that area!


Very nice place. Good people, good place, good breakfast, good good good!

This is a nice place to relax and meet other travelers. The staff is helpful and they have bike rentals. The only negative is that the rooms don't have locks on the door and the noise from outside and from the hall. It would be nice if there are a few more separate toilets


Beautiful hostel. Probably the biggest i saw in Montevideo with a good pool, friendly staff and a decent breakfast. Would go here again.


If you like the atmosphere of old buildings with wooden floors and staircases and the noise level that comes with it, then you might like it here. The breakfast is as basic as anywhere in UY or AR. I would recommend this place.


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in!!
