Property Description

Habemus Hostel built to fulfill backpackers needs, while offering unique decor and high-comfort. Kick back and enjoy an authentic stay at our freshly refurbished 1950´s house.

In Montevideo´s hype Cordón area, where you are just steps away from all major attractions and interesting spots of the city, specially coffee shops, bars and restaurants. We will give you maps, information and recommendations on where to go.

We love our cooking so we´ve fully renovated the kitchen so you feel comfy cooking way more than just instant noodles. By the way, we have a massive patio where we usually make (proper) asados and have a great time together. You can enjoy a fresh cuppa or cold brew in the shade of the avocado tree.

In your dorm or private room you can expect to find a night stand, universal power socket, shelf space, hangers and a large locker for your valuables. All rooms are equipped with air-con, so don't sweat about it. Showers and lavatories have been re-done from scratch and are kept very clean.

    I felt very safe there, the place looks great, very clean and tidy, kitchen was small but well equipped and there was even a super nintendo to play! The staff was ok but every time i talked to then they were high and there was one really creepy guy with a mustache. Beds were very comfortable only problem sometimes was the cars noises from the street. Overall it was one of the cleanest hostels i've been in Uruguay. I recommend.

    I stayed here twice and love this place! The breakfast is amazing-- homemade bread! The beds are comfortable and the staff is so so kind- feels like home. It's not a party hostel but has a great social atmosphere if you want to but quiet if you don't. I really enjoyed my stay here.

    Really enjoyed staying at this hostel! Super close to everywhere, good breakfast, relaxed vibe, comfy beds, good value for money. Had a small issue when I was there but the staff addressed it quickly and efficiently which was highly appreciated. Definitely would recommend to stay here when you are in Montevideo.

    Very Good

    Their internet connection keeps dropping all day long (it's really really bad). I had to go to a coffee shop to book some flights. The rooms are really hot and you can't turn on the air conditioning because they keep all remotes locked. I asked them to turn it on but they refused.
