Property Description

Habemus Hostel built to fulfil 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.

    Habemus is a fantastic place to stay for a night or a week. The people are so nice and facilities are really good too (super clean). It's central and nearby to bars and cervecaria's to visit for dinner or lunch (the breakfast at the hostel, with fresh home made bread and scrambled eggs is hard to beat). I had to return to Montevideo and stayed here a 2nd time, and would do so any other opportunities I have in the future.

    Great staff that cooks breakfast and has a fun hang out area downstairs! We went out together on a Wednesday night and had so much fun -- only a 15 minute walk to good bars and some dancing.

    Really enjoyed staying here! The location was perfect for walking to the old city or the beach. They serve a great breakfast each morning and really try to foster a community in the hostel. Will be staying here again the next time I'm in Montevideo.

    Really enjoyed my stay at Habemus - the very friendly, helpful staff make all the difference! A really nice atmosphere, plenty of common/social space and a really good breakfast every morning. The beds in the female dorm were comfy, warm and really well equipped (shelf, light, plug socket, hanger), though there was some noise from the road throughout the night so earplugs might be needed if you're a very light sleeper. Also make sure you take your own lock for the lockers.

    Good location, near Rambla of Montevideo, also easy to go to the "old city". Breakfast is good, staff is very supportive and can speak english, spanish or help in portuguese, if needed. A little bit of street noise (weeks), but I think it's party of the game, it will be some noise.

    Clean hostel in a good part of the city. It's not too far of a walk to get to anything. The only thing to be aware of are the lockers; they're small. There isn't enough space to store your bags, only valuable items.

    Suuuper loud rooms next to a street that has traffic/bars that let out late. Loved everyone there, super breakfast/common space, and the neighborhood/city is great, but couldn't handle the flimsiness of the rooms for sleeping.
