Property Description

Welcome to the vibrant and eclectic city of Montevideo! We are right next to the heart of downtown, near the main street 18 de Julio, and right by all the places you want to visit. Enjoy South America’s fun and relaxing vibe at our hostel with a hot mate in hand (it’s like a tea and it’s popular over here)!

Stay in private bedrooms, or in shared dorms (some are exclusively for girls), and don’t worry, all our rooms have A/C. During the day, grab a beer and head to our inner patio to embrace those hot summer days. Maybe even rent a bike, explore the city and ride through the rambla on the beach which stretches out through the whole city.

At night, have a drink at the bar and enjoy some live music. See you soon and get ready to live the latino vibe of the southern part of the continent.

Welcome to our traveler community! Don't forget to check out our other hostels in Uruguay: Colonia, Colonia Posada B&B and La Pedrera and in Colombia: Cali, Cartagena, San Andrés Island, Santa Marta and Salento.

You'll find El Viajero – Downtown Hostel & Suites in a typical 19th-century colonial-style house that used to be a hotel, which adds a bit of character to go with our fun hostel spirit! We are definitely the place for meeting new people thanks to our super-social outdoor terrace and solarium where you can grab a beer from the bar (it's open 24/7). Grab a bite from the BBQ and listen to some live music. We've got the necessities covered too, like free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel.


We're in the bustling downtown district of Montevideo, just a three minute walk from the main street, Avenue 18 de Julio – lined with shops, bars and restaurants. From the airport, take a taxi for 38 minutes or jump on the 710 bus for 42 minutes to Avenue Uruguay y Gral. Rondeau then walk 9 minutes to us. Take a 33 minute walk to the Parque José Enrique Rodó to kick back by the lake or visit its National Museum of Visual Arts before soaking up sunshine on the beach – two minutes from the park.

Rooms and Dorms

Spread out in a private room or get to know other travellers in a shared or female-only dorm decorated with bold wallpaper. To keep you really comfy, all the rooms have fresh sheets, air con and an en-suite. The showers are hot 24/7, too (if you've not got a towel make sure you hire one from us before jumping in).

Extras and activities

As well as a cool outdoor terrace, we have a garden and a common room with a TV, DVDs and games for a laid-back afternoon. Hungry? Head to the kitchen to make a snack or order something from our café. If you're going out to explore, pop by our 24-hour reception first where you can buy bus tickets, hire a bike and pick up a free city map. We put on events at special times of the year like Christmas and New Year's Eve, too – party into the year ahead!

    Great hostel! The courtyard space was really cool. It was a bit noisy at night because my room faced the street.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hostel! We ended up extending our stay due to the bus schedules but it worked out great because we got to make use of the hostels bike hire service and see more of the city. We made great use of the communal kitchen which included everything we needed! Beds were comfy, hostel was relatively clean, atmosphere was chilled and the staff were very helpful. The location was okay but apart from that it was a great hostel and I would return!

    Hostel was in a good location and had live music some nights which was nice. My room was next to the bar area so there was often noise until midnight/1am... earplugs recommended if you want an early night. Not many toilets (2 female ones) or showers and one of the ladies toilets was not in a good state but functional.

    Strictly basic. Private rooms are expensive in confrontation with the prices of nearby hotels

    The location of the hostel is really good and its pretty social: you get a free drink at check-in; didn’t seem like party tho. The beds were squeaky tho and you could hear the people in the courtyard talking when trying to sleep in early. Also the bathroom was pretty dirty. Because you have to put the sheets on the beds yourself u know your bed is clean.

    Friendly staff, decent location. There were too few (dirty, smelly) bathrooms for all the guests, and my room was inside a hallway and had no windows, just a door, so it was really stuffy. I had expected more with the reviews!
