The Posada Al Sur is a great hostel in Montevideo. It is affordable, stylish, and, like many hostels, it attracts a steady flow of interesting & diverse travelers from all over the world. The hostel is a coop. It is centrally located in an attractive old building on a pedestrian only road in glorious Ciudad Vieja, the beautiful (& crumbling)... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and found the stunning 19th century and staff absolutely charming. We speak very little Spanish but the staff that didnt speak english were very patient and kind in communicating with us. We stayed in the dorm which is kind of random because it's almost in their restaurant but it wasnt a... More

One can hear every sound (and we mean EVERY sound) made in adjoining bedrooms. This can mean a lack of privacy as well as disturbed nights. Quirky building which is quite fun and a good location - otherwise nothing special to rave about.

For the past years I had traveled all over South America and let me tell you one thing, this hostel is one of the most clean, friendly and professional that ever encounter on all of my adventures. It has a beautiful colonial architecture mixed with a contemporary style, close in patios and a restaurant! What else could you ask for?... More

Found this place by accident as one of the staff offered to help us with directions when we were lost in a nearby street! Very friendly staff, they went out of their way to help with directions and bookings. The place is amazing, beautifully designed and well maintained. Amazing views from the cute garden on the rooftop. Rooms and bedding... More

The only bad thing about our experience to the "Ciudad Vieja" is that we were mugged. They stole Sun me's handbag while we were trying to figure out how to open the door. It turns out that there was another hole for the key, and the one we were using was the wrong one. So much for those heavy South... More

Our tour guide Bruno recommended the hostel. We didn't stay there but the gracious hosts allowed us to store our bags. We took a tour of the premises and they seemed wonderful as well!! Would definitely recommend if the location suits your needs!

Nice and homely hostel with really helpful and friendly staff. The dou rooms are beautifully decorated with high ceilings. Breakfast is an interesting affair where you meet other travellers and share stories. If there is one criticism it would be that the wall in between the rooms are too thin that, when things are quiet in the early evening, it... More
