i loved the hostel, the staff is so nice that makes you feel at home. The cleaning lady works really hard to keep everything looking shiny!. The location is also very good as you are very close from the center and also the beach. a place to come back for sure!

I stayed at this hostel off season for couple of days visiting a friend that lives in Punta del Este. I opted for private room with bathroom. 2 beds, side tables, some shelves, safe, and small private bathroom was enough to make me happy. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The location of the hostel is great. It's a very... More

Stayed here for three nights. Stayed in the six bed dorm which was quite basic and extremely small!! The staff at reception were not that helpful, I suppose it didn't help that they barley spoke any English (I know it's our fault we don't speak Spanish), but it therefore ment getting any useful info from them on the town and...

I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel! Clean & comfortable, with a nice staff! I just think that the dishes to cook food could be a little bit new, some of them were in a really bad shape! I'd totally stay there again! =)

In between the surf- and swim beaches and 10min. walking to the bus-terminal it is located nicely to have a good time in Punta del Este. Next to the hostel is a supermarket and a cool (though expensive) place to enjoy a great cup of coffee and something extra. Our four-bed dorm had a bathroom and airconditioning which was great....

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights during the low-season. The positives: Good location, close to the bus terminal, beaches, (cheaper) restaurants, supermarket, etc. Large common area with bar and a kitchen available. Fireplace, which they fortunately kept going constantly - it is cold in June! Fairly good breakfast, for a hostel. Good wifi Large TV with movies.... More

This is a great hostel with friendly helpful staff. There's a large comunal area with good wifi and a TV. The kitchen is also large so no problem if others are cooking at the same time as you. There are a number of nice restaurants just around the corner too.

We stayed for 1 night in a double.room and we have been really impressed by the cleanness, the nice bathroom and a good bed. You find aircondition as well as even a TV in the room. Breakfast is standard. The overall atmosphere was ok, there have definitely been a lot of people but I found it almost a bit too... More

If you're 19 and are into partying and are ok with basic digs, this is the place for you. Loud, thumping music is turned on every night, sometimes till 3am, making it difficult to sleep if you're not used to Uruguayan time. You're also expected to put on and remove your own bedding upon arrival. The person who last slept... More

Stayed in an upstairs double room in December 2012. The room was nice, spacious, with aircon, cable TV and an ensuite shower and toilet, both of which were very clean. The hostel is in a good location from where you can walk to the downtown, harbour and most of the beaches and there are plenty of restaurants and snack food... More
