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.

    Loved the atmosphere of this hostel, especially the courtyard. We were only there for one night but it was everything we needed. The staff at the front desk were very nice and spoke great English. The shower never ran out of hot water and was cleaned quite often. The WiFi was very good and the kitchen had everything we needed to make meals. Their dog is absolutely the best part of our stay - we loved her so much. We would definitely stay again.

    Great hostel, great location, great and friendly staff. Well stocked kitchen, good lounge areas and outdoor backyard is fabulous. Stayed in the 9 bed dorm at the front, traffic noise a little loud, but ear plugs do the trick. Only two bathrooms with showers and an extra toilet - could do with an extra bathroom for the amount of beds. Overall - highly recommend!

    I stayed in the 4 beds room (mixed). Small room but very comfy beds equipped with individual light, plug, plank. The hostel is friendly, good atmosphere, with a cool garden, feels like home and well located as in the « nightlife » area, so pubs/restaurants are close by (the area as the city remains quiet). Big up to the staff! Small coins: toilets in the showers do not make it easy as showers are also limited. Lockers are small , so you can lock only the most important things. thanks a lot! :)

    Quirky atmosphere, nice staff & a good location. It was relatively clean, beds have side lights & power outlets. The lockers aren't big enough for proper backpacking bags but will fit a day bag. Breakfast was good! There's eggs & homemade bread. Overall, was decent & would return.

    A bit dirty, my bed was used when I arrived and everything just needed a clean, the downstairs bathroom had no hot water and the staff were all too high to do anything about it! I came back and the front door was wide open as a staff member forgot to shut it, and that’s the only security between the outside world and the dorms! They mean well but it doesn’t translate into practice... plus the location isn’t great, quite far from most things and not the safest of walks for a solo woman.
