We loved our stay at the trip hostel so much that when we went to leave after 4 days and missed our 11am bus, instead of getting a bus at 5pm the same day we just decided to check back in for another 2 days. The staff really go out of their way to help with anything we needed and... More

We were staying one night in this hostel in Punta del Este. They had good prices, nice staff, nice hostel, air condicion...almost everything was good. But unfortunately, at least that bed where I slept, was full of some bugs..."pulgas" or something like that. Because in the morning when I woke up, my cheeks and my legs were full of bites..and...

I stayed at this hostel over Christmas, and the guys running the hostel made it a really enjoyable experience. Diego, Marcello and Gonzalo, 3 local guys do a fantastic job in making everyone visiting feel really special and welcome. From the moment you walk in, they are helpful and try to make you feel at home. They play great music... More

What a terrific hostel. My girlfriend and I rented their private room with ensuite bathroom for 3 days, we could not be happier with our decision. The service and friendliness of the staff is beyond amazing and they made the stay so much more worthwhile. The room had AC and cable TV with HBO. The kitchen was very well stocked... More

Easy to find with signs everywhere. The bathrooms, rooms and sheets are very clean. Our room was small with triple bunk beds which makes it easy to... More

Best hostel- simply because of the legendary staff. They all bent over backwards to learn our names, help us out with anything, and make sure our stay was as good as possible. Friendly/ fun/ relaxed vibe, the bar is great (but you can also byo), the rooftop is perfect for afternoon caipirinhas, and the kitchen has everything you need. Showers... More

The living room area is decorated like you would have it at home, so it has a very cosy feeling. I went there in October when it was still cold and found sitting by the fire place,with their gorgeous dog by my side, very comforting. The rooms are big with plenty, plenty of bunk beds, so it can get crowded,... More
