This place rules! The hostel is pretty clean, the staff is very nice, the beds are comfy, and the wifi is always working. I would stay here during any visit to Uruguay. They are located a 5 minute walk to the grocery store and about 15mins to the beach. The small kitchen could be an issue if there were a... More

We've stayed here for two nights. Nacho and the rest of his colleagues are very kind and the location is good. The beach is just a two minut walk. There is a big supermarket just one block away and the busstation is close by. The breakfast is what you can expect in a hostal. We really enjoyed our stay in... 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
