Comfy bed, clean bathroom and good location but we found stuff unhelpful and our room (no. 4) was dirty and the walls were covered in mould. Luckily, nobody else stayed in the room, so we could pick a bed that was not facing a mouldy wall. We've stayed in much better hostels for less money. Not great value for money!

We were in a 6 bed dorm and it was nice, clean, plenty of space and the wifi worked well, the bathrooms were also clean and there were 2 smaller bathrooms and 1 large one just on our floor so no chance of not being able to go! The location is really good as well, just outside their old district...

Stayed here for two nights im 6 - dorm. Summary: - great location, very safe neighborhood - incl. Bike rental (its worth it for 2-3 hours) - very good matraces - very clean, - good breakfast - excellent value So I would always go there again and would recommend it without any negative say. Thanks for a perfect stay 🙂

The 6 bed dorm we booked was OK, breakfast was fine, but the staff weren't very friendly. They wouldn't even look up when you walked in and sometimes they weren't even at the desk to help. The kitchen was cool to cook in though.

It is located in a walking distance to the old town. Relatively clean rooms, basic breakfast is served in the restaurant located near reception ( for cooking during the day&evening, there is another kitchen in a different building which has a lower standard). The staff was not friendly and the cost per night was too expensive for that city.

As far as hostels go, this is probably the cleanest one I stayed in while in Uruguay. It's in a great location to explore the old town and its bright, and the air conditioning is great. Wifi is solid, breakfast is provided and its relatively clean. The people are there if you need help but they don't go out of...

You have to remember a hostel is still only hostel quality, no matter how good it is. But as far as hostels go this one was superb. The entire place was clean and everything seemed new. The dorms were comfortable and had air conditioning, it was quiet, and the Internet actually worked! The majority of our places in Uruguay had...

Dorm was clean and you even get a towl. People working there not overly friendly but still ok. Bathrooms ok but you can't lock the doors, mold in the showers and not enough when the hostel fully booked. Breakfast is standard. Kitchen definitly not for much cooking.

location: good. near the water and old town. About a 10 minute walk from terminal. ambiance: friendly and social but not necessarily a hostel feel. there are indoor and outdoor sitting areas. there is opportunity for the daytime staff to engage more with guests and create a more fun, welcoming atmosphere. i think that is the only thing missing for...

Wow I have never been in a hostel that is so clean! But then again the place feels more like a hotel then a hostel. People are not really friendly and also they don't speak English! We came from a other hostel and moved to this one, so for us it was a big upgrade! And it was even cheaper!...
