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, most of 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.

Overview

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.

Location

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!

    I had a nice stay. The people who were working were kind and engaging. Only downside is that the internet was not great. They still only had a 2.4GHz network (should move to 5GHz)!

    I really enjoyed my stay here. Great location, really lovely building and the staff are very friendly and helpful and will point you towards tours etc. The facilities are very basic but fine. There is a great bar in a courtyard which is a really easy way to meet people but if you want to sleep earplugs are essential! A lot of the rooms/dorms are directly by the bar and music and talking goes on late into the night. Our dorm door was broken so it wouldn't close properly.

    I liked this place better than my companion did. We had an ensuite room, which was small. The air conditioning was good. The shower was small and one morning there was no not water. Breakfast was adequate, but unchanging. The location is a transition from the busy commercial district to an aging neighborhood. We felt safe on the street. The building itself is an old house with a central courtyard. The staff is helpful and there is a good mix of international guests.

    I was so excited to stay in this hostel but I think my expectations were a little high. It would be nice if there was a non- smoking area of the courtyard. But every time I’d be eating and there was ash trays and smokers everywhere- really quiet offputting for breakfast. The noise kept me up as well-as the bedrooms are all along the courtyard. And when I was trying to hav a few drinks and socialise the ‘dj’ was playing YouTube videos for his mates so there wasn’t even music. Disappointing.

    I have stayed in all kind of hostels around the world. I had the worst experience in this hostel. Very indifferent and arrogant staff. Dirty toilets. Uncomfortable beds and loud music till late in the night.
