Beautiful house! Very nice stuff! I found it pretty clean. It was a bit empty when I was there but there would a lot of options to meet the other guest. At the bar or by the pool for example :) breakfast was very uruguay (very sweet) but there was plenty :) as far as I can judge the area and the location of the hostel was good as well :) I would defensively recommend the hostel :)
Never saw a hostel that clean! And the staff was very friendly and helping with all our questions.
The hostel is really cool. It's well located, it's clean, and it has loads of atmosphere
Good hostel overall. Staff was nice, kitchen was nice. The common areas are great. Bathrooms could be improved as well as the wifi. overall would recommend!
We were not impressed by this hostel. Around forty preteen boys on a field trip stayed at the hostel, making noise and running around until 3 in the morning, even pounding on the door of our twin room as we tried to sleep. The staff made no apparent effort to control them or their volume. Breakfast was largely inaccessible because the boys ate everything/swarmed the room, blocking our access. Clearly there is no age minimum for hostel guests, and the staff is not particularly attentive.
They are very attentive & informative. Receptive to your inquiries day & night. A comfortable cool vibe with a swimming pool & outside chill area. Inside a fire place when needed & a b"fast included to get you going. In the heart of the City . One way Old Town & Puerto Mercado & the other way Main Bus Station & Mall . Also Estadio Centennario nearby.
Nice hostel, very laid-back. It looks like a house that has been transformed in a hostel. Its location is good, as most interesting things are within a walking distance. Staff is friendly and can answer questions. Great kitchen for those who like to cook. Amazing showers with really hot water. However, it was very quiet when I was there, which was fine by me, but others might feel bored. Also, more power outlets would be appreciated. All in all, I enjoyed my stay at Ukelele Hostel.
Very nice hostel close to downtown. My only complaint is that there was only one shower on the whole second floor so there was a long wait in the mornings.
great outside space, with hamacs and lots of places to read and enjoy the sun I would definitely go back for that reason!

Montevideo its a really quiet town. But the hostel its really well located. They have a nice kitchen, good bathrooms and real nice music room. There are some bars and some restaurants near to the hostel, also a good point. I think its better in the summer, because you can use the pool. Its also ok if you are a lonely traveler. The common areas help to meet new people. The bike rental its expensive compare to other places. Search first.
One of my all-time favorite hostels! Beautiful rooms with elegant high ceilings, comfortable common spaces, fun music room with a guitar and piano-- and we loved the cat! The staff as very welcoming and fun to talk to. Highly recommend it!
Ukulele is a beautiful hostel in a good location near Ciudad Vieja, but safe. It has a fun and friendly crowd for the weekend/bar scene. Staff (including a sweet and adorable cat name Milton) are helpful and friendly with bus routes and recommendations. There were a few Wifi issues. Also there are not nearly enough bathrooms (3) when the hostel is full. On our last night there was a show that took almost the entire 1st floor, but which guests could only attend if purchasing a 200 peso ticket.
Really enjoyed my stay here, friendly vibe. Basic but reasonable breakfast selection. Beds were comfortable (6 bed mixed), would have been better if there were more bathrooms/showers.
Beautiful hostel. Stunning old building, a little cold in winter perhaps but wonderful place bed down in for a few days. Highly highly recommended.
The environment is really friendly and the staff is well prepared to provide the guests with any information either about sigthseeings or the Uruguayan nightlife .Personally, I felt as I was in my parents home.
