    It was the most expensive hostel I stayed in during my 15 day trip between Argentina and Uruguay and value for the money was the worst. Hotel looked old, dirt & careless. $75 usd (one night, Superior Double Bed Private ensuite/independent room) but it did not worth it. Next time, for that amount of money I would go to a commercial hotel (days inn). It did not have environment to hang out even it was Thur, not much info for tours or walking tours, and did not feel safe walking there at night.

    We only stayed for one night in transit but the place was very nice. They upgraded us to a private room which was wonderful. A little noisey from the street (the room faced the main road) and the whole building smelled a little funny but the room did not. Overall, I would recommend.

    Overall nice hostel!! The top patio is pretty nice and the situation is perfect, 1 street from 18 de Julio. Cheap for Montevideo and breakfast is nice. Kitchen does not have a lot of equipment and wifi cuts from time to time.

    The staff were really confused when checking us in and took a long time (I don’t know whether they were in training or something?) The hostel itself was ok, no one English speaking staying here and was a very quiet / weird atmosphere, but it’s a decent place to rest your head for the night.

    While the infrastructure suggests that this hostel was once nice, it is clear that little effort was put into upkeep. It was very dingy. There was no seat on the toilet. The shower door was broken. They didn't have enough key cards for the number of guests. A staff member tried to say I wasn't allowed to eat breakfast (which is supposedly included in the price) even though I had eaten breakfast the day before and according to her "list" another member in my party who I booked and paid with was.

    Wasn’t horrible, but definitely not good. Bed was okay, but blankets were not clean. Showers worn down. Room had a very strong smell of bug spray - made me nauseous. Windows are not sound proof - and the street is very noise. Area is not the best, but close to bus - I had no problems walking at night here. Staff knows zero English, so couldn’t help with bus. Common room is not cozy and def not clean! Breakfast was very basic. Never found the rooftop. Would not stay again.

    We had a disappointing stay in this hostel! We were staying in a 12 bed dorm with one toilet which didn’t work. We had to go downstairs any time we needed to use the toilet and there was never any toilet roll in either toilets. The shower door was completely broken and our room key didn’t work. We changed it at reception and the second didn’t work either. Our roommates were friendly, but were all over 30/40 and appeared to be permanent residents. The area did not feel safe and not much to do.
