Though it's a bit far from the Punta Del Leste itself, it's close to a gorgeous beach. If you want to escape the traditional touristy spots, it is your best bet. Shops and restaurants are also a bit of a walk, but it's cheaper than elsewhere in the city. If you ask the bus drivers where you're going they will leave very close to the hostel. The place is quiet and chilled, clean and has a great atmosphere.

-No plugs on the bedrooms: to charge your phone, you must do it on the bar (common area) "for security"; -It's 2,7 km (1,7 miles) from Casapueblo and 1 km (0,65 miles) from the closest bus stop; Take a printed map with the location! The streets have no name and know you will have to walk beside de highway to get there; -The best thing about the hostel was the staff: great people; -We absolutelly recommend you eat the salame pizza. It's really good; -A great place for relaxing.
