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.

    Habemus is a home from home. Modern facilities with a homely feel. The staff are helpful, friendly and hang out at the house with the guests, drinking mate and playing guitar. The hostel itself is sparkling clean, the breakfast is good and the beds are the most comfortable hostel beds I’ve stayed in. The location is good, bit of a walk to the old town, but worth it for the nicer area. To top it all off they have the sweetest dog!

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in in Latin America! Location is great, in a neighborhood filled with charming historical architecture and tree-lined steets. The hostel is thoughtfully put together in a renovated historical building. The rooms are clean, modern, beds are comfortable and there is a great A/C unit in each room!

    Stayed one night and was a good stay! My first time staying in a room with bunk beds stacked in 3, which was an efficient way to create space in the room. Lockers are too small to fit a backpack in, so bring a lock for your stuff! Front desk had good suggestions for things to do. The wifi was in and out, but good enough for what I needed. It's a small but charming hostel, I recommend!

    We loved this hostel. The room was nice, individual plug and light for each bed, lockers at the room, good space. Everything seems to be new. Kitchen was well equipped, breakfast was good. The only problem was the bathrooms. It would be better if they had at least one or two toilets because if people were taking shower you couldn't use the toilet.

    Cute dog, nice staff, laid-back vibe. 6 bed room is small. We had 4 people and it was tight so I can imagine 6 would be really uncomfortable. bathroom was clean & updated. In a great location!

    Lovely people running Habemus hostel - they have created a very friendly and welcoming environment. The breakfast in the morning is lovely and I really appreciated the staff who cooked, cleaned, chatted - it felt very homely. Great social spaces but would be nice to have somewhere to hang out that’s a bit quieter because the room was not really a space for sitting. However the rooms were nice, big lockers etc Thanks all! Also I love montevideo and the hostel is in a great area Xxx

    Staff were super nice and facilities were great with super big beds, hard to climb up to top bunk but good atmosphere. Pretty below average breakfast though. Super easy walk to the beach

    Pros: good location close to buses and the coast. Breakfast was pretty decent. Beds had charger ports and lamps. Staff were friendly and there was a chilled atmosphere. Cons: didn’t like the three tier bed set up. The bathrooms got very busy very quickly.

    Very nice hostel, loved that the owner was there. He took his time you completely give us an over view of that to do to our personal taste.
