This is one of the better hostels I've ever stayed in, with fantastic staff and guests. We stayed in a four bed dorm which was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was nice and the kitchen really well equipped for cooking. Bathrooms were clean and although there are not many of them we never had to wait. Nice rooftop terrace... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Beautiful building, with a very nice rooftop terrace. Very relaxed athmosphere, and the manager is very friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

We found this posada to be very nice and well maintained, the staff most knowledgeable and helpful, and generally very good value for Montevideo, which is generally more expensive than the rest of South America. The area is quite and safe, yet in the middle of the old city, only a few blocks to the famed Mercado de Puerto and... More

We really enjoyed this hostel. It's owned by a collective who also have a restaurant and shop in the building next door. It's a really attractive building with good kitchen facilities and a nice rooftop area to chill out and watch the sunset. Breakfast is provided although starts a little late at 8:30 so you may miss out if you... More

The manager is actually a very smart, personable and very educated person, if you can converse with him in Spanish. If you don't speak Spanish, then you will have issues here. There is a great ambience in the place, and during the night time, the manager often holds deep cultural and political discussions on the roof with little bites to... More

I stayed there for a few days and I was quite happy with it. It has a great rooftop and the veiw from there at dusk is gorgeous. Especially memorable is a person name Sebastian who attended to the front desk when I was there. He is incredibly personable and took his time to give me information as well as... More

The dorm room we were given wasn't inside the hostel itself but was in the building next door. This was a huge problem because the dorm room was next to a kitchen. It was like sleeping in the middle of a restaurant. We were woken up one morning by the chef and an employee having a blazing row. We also... More

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.
