Property Description

Welcome to Montevideo, the vibrant and eclectic capital of Uruguay. We will ensure that your vacations at Viajero Montevideo are unforgettable, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, where you will surely meet people from all over the world. Enjoy the rooftop with a unique view of the city while you try mate, the favorite drink of all Uruguayans (it's like tea, and it's very popular here). Have a cocktail in the living room or play pool for a while before heading out on the town to party.

We are located in the history center of the city, from where you can walk to 'la puerta de la Ciudadela' and the Cathedral of Montevideo, to then discover 'La Plaza Matriz' and 'La plaza de la Independencia' beside all the places you must visit on the Uruguay capital.

Stay in private rooms, some of these duplex style, with a spacious and comfortable living room on the first floor where you can read a book or work for a while before going up to rest on the second floor with a bed and private bathroom. Or if you prefer, stay in a shared room (some are exclusively for women). All have curtains to ensure your privacy.

During the day, you can rent a bike, explore the city and stroll along the beach promenade that stretches throughout the city. In the evening, drink at the bar and enjoy live music. This is the perfect place if you travel alone or with friends and want to meet new people! See you soon, and prepare to live in the Latin atmosphere of the continent's south.

Don't stay in this hostel if you want to get any sleep -- the LOUDEST place ive ever stayed. The layout is majestic and pretty but you hear everything: the doors slam, people playing pool, people talking -- not worth the other positives.

What can I say? I stayed here for two weeks, met the most amazing people, slept like a baby and enjoyed the many benefits. This area has to offer. This one is a no-brainer. If you’re coming to Montevideo, you simply must stay here. This beautiful historic building, in the center of Montevideo has spacious bedrooms, plenty of common areas, a wonderful kitchen, super clean bathrooms, and showers, but most of all it’s about the wonderful people who make this place work. Everyone I met was helpful !
