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!

    This place was great! Stayed in a private room during my two days in Montevideo. The area is well located in between a street with all the great restaurants in Montevideo and the Plaza de Independencia (literally a matter of turning left or right after leaving the hostel). They also sell great wine for pretty cheap at the front desk.

    Wonderful place. Excellent location and super helpful staff. The outside bar was just great and there were shows almost every night, with singers and violin players! I totally recommend this hostel.

    Chilled out vibe. Two big common areas. Good WiFi. Nice beds and clean bathrooms. Lockers under the bed. Staff gave a good rundown at check in. Lots of people chilling out at night.

    Pros- good security, staff were friendly, WiFi was fast, beds were comfortable, breakfast was nice. Cons- not much social vibe, the hostel plays loud music until 1am (even though there’s like 2 people actually outside listening to it) and the heaters/ air cons in the room make loud beeping noises at random intervals- honestly its a terrible nights sleep! bathrooms were badly ventilated and really disgusting.
