On hostelworld the description said that the hostel was renewed in December. This turned out to be old information. The bathrooms of the hostels were renewed December 2012. The photos are from 2009. The breakfast was very basic and the rooftop bar could use a make-over. Matresses and pilows were very old.

Worst breakfast in six months travelling in South America , made a mistake of booking this hostel. Rooms were clean and staff friendly , but was expensive and thinks it is the Hilton by the way it charges . The hostel is central to the city and seems safe at night . Should have read the reviews on trip adviser... More

The only good thing is that is close to the center.... Anything else.... My friend and I booked a room without to know that at the end was on the basement, on the next building.... Dirty sheets, no AA or ventilator in a roon with no windows and just one pc for a fulllllll hostel.

I think it's an old building, so staying at Red Hostel had a bit of a nostalgic feeling to it, and I quite enjoyed my stay. The hostel has a nice kitchen and terrace, really good breakfast, and a magnificent fireplace. I was there during the off-season, so not many travelers meant I had a nice room to myself. The... More

Intendencia Municipal (panoramic city view), Centro de Fotografia de Montevideo and Museo de la Historia del Arte are points located on the same street.There is the Mercado de la Abundancia where you can buy artcrafts and eat typical...

Red hostel is a good choice if your time is limited in Montevideo. It's situated in the centre of the city, in the new town, close to everything in the city. The staff is really nice and helpful, tells you everything you want to know. Dorms are okay, clean and comfortable. I missed some fan so the night was really... More

The hostel is located in the Centro and close to Montevideo's main attractions, but there are a few factors that gives a negative shadow to the hostel. First, the rooms are not clean. We stayed in room 11, which is a 4-bed mixed dorm and the roof was dripping water, and that too directly over an electric socket. We complained... More
