Everything about the hostel it's so special that it's impossible do not feel great in there. The place is unique and so confortable that makes easy to meet people, talk, cook something, relax and just stay there after a great day around the city, because all about the hostel makes you feel good. I loved the staff, they treat you... More

We stayed for one night in the basement room and then had to change hostel. We arrived late in the afternoon and the room was not ready yet. They were out of pillowcases so they gave us bed sheets to wrap the (very old and yellow) pillows. Spiderwebs in the room: I woke up with a rash in my face!... More

The Team is really nice and the location too (near the beaches). However, the Hostel was not really clean, including dorms and bathroom. The breakfast was really poor. All makes it not really cheap. I will not recommend it.

Overall we enjoyed this place since the costs were so bad and one of the staff in particular (Nacho) was great. But when we checked out we were a bit soured when we were all suited up with our backpacks and the girl at the desk asked us to bring down our bedsheets (never have we stayed in hostels that...

The hostel is in a pretty great location, within walking distance to the water and several good places to eat. The area was very nice and safe and I felt no problems walking around at night by myself. I stayed at the hostel for one night, and my main problem was that the dorm room I stayed in was underneath... More

At 3am we decided to go to montevideo to assist to the match Uruguay vs Colombia. At 9 we were sailing. Due to our nule planification we found out that our cards wouldn't work being already in uruguay :-( We used the few cash we had to get into Pocitos hostel. Terrific location. Beautiful neighborhood close to main avenues where... More

I've stayed four days in Pocitos Hostel and it was actually amazing! The staff is very nice and friendly, the bed is comfortable, its a very cozy place and in an excellent neighborhood. The beach is 5 blocks away and there is a good supermarket one block away. I would definitely stay here again and strongly recommend it. I could... More

This hostel is in the nicest and safest part of town. It's a good area in particular solo travellers, though not much happens in winter and the hostel was quite quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful (though at times some of them seemed more focussed on hanging out with their friends who were visiting than actually working) They... More

We were a bit disappointed by our stay here. Our private double was downstairs in the basement and was quite dark and dingy. Having said that the staff are friendly, location is good and there is a decent kitchen. We found it quite expensive though for what you get - there are better value places to stay in Montevideo.

I stayed here for both the first few days and the last few days of my Uruguayan adventure. It is a small residential style building in a nice part of town with convenient bus access and walkable to a pleasant urban beach, restaurants and various shopping options. Friendly staff, available 24 hours, secure with a door buzzer entrance, clean and... More
