    Very nice place close to Montevideo's perfectly adequate urban beach. Slightly annoying having to ring the bell and wait for someone to come open the door every time you enter or exit.

    Bernardo one of the workers was such a cool guy I still remembered him as one of the best of all the hostel workers I met the whole trip. He turned me onto drinking mate. I had a room to myself when there and the place seemed slow but that could have just been the week I was there. Overall was a good value. Heads up, if you take your clothes around the corner to the laundry make sure they give back all your clothes. They kept my jacket and nice pants which I did not realize till later.

    The staff was super friendly and helpful. Very safe area and hostel. The place could be cleaner. I hated using the toilet because the seat didn’t match the toilet. The shower had nice hot water. I really liked this place overall.

    Good hostel in a convenient location only a few blocks from the “beach”. Staff were helpful. Showers had no privacy (just a shower curtain between you and the bathroom/toilet area), although this didn’t bother us. Fully equipped kitchen with a nice outdoor area for eating/drinking.

    I enjoyed my stay here at Pocitos Hostel, it's not the closest to the beach but you can walk to Playa Pocitos. My friends and I rented a car so we had no problems. The staff here are really friendly and they treat you well, the dorms are safe in that there are keys to the room and you have to buzz to get in through the main door, which can be irritating for some. There is a nice patio outside to chill at and it closes after a certain time so you don't have to worry about noise.

    Very nice spot in a good and safe location during both day and night. Great, helpful and friendly staff. Close to Pocitos beach, Ciudad Vieja easy to reach by public transport. Easy to reach by bus (safe) from the airport.

    Low season review (september): -I was the only tourist among foreigners living there. Most of the "frat members" were really welcoming, so there was a "big family" atmosphere, but it certainly wasn't a hostel vibe. -There wasn't anyone at the reception. I was welcomed at the time I arrived and the rest I had to deal through WhatsApp. -No breakfast. I got a discount, but Uruguay is an expensive country even when buying at a supermarket. -As one had broken down, too few bathrooms for everyone.
