This is not a party hostel. Most of the residents it seems are long term 40+, and speaking to the owners that seems a pretty standard thing. This gives it a nice homey feel. Dwcent Irish bar down the road Rooms are fine, showers good. Location good Most alarming thing however was no receptionist past 10pm and lax security!! Nobody... More

Punto berro worked for us because we mainly only slept there. there is a nice terrace and good breakfast. very close to the rambla (boardwalk). however, the bathrooms seemed like they are never cleaned with actual cleaning solution, showers were pretty gross, the shower curtains looked like they hadn't been changed in years. I've stayed at many hostels that are... More

I stayed five nights at Punto Berro Hostel in a 4-bed dorm, a pretty basic hostel. The dorm AC worked fine all but one day. The breakfast was okay, some fruit, but it varied depending on what seemed to be available, often disadvantageously. The location was just a couple blocks from a beach. The staff was very helpful, particularly when... More

The best thing about Punto Berro is their location, just a few blocks from the Pocitos beach and a good offer of shops and restaurants. The staff is very helpful, specially the girl on the night shift who went all the way to find us a taxi to the airport on a very rainy night. Breakfast is ok, the bed... More

Gaby and Juan are taking very good care for the place, and their guests. Whatever questions you have or help you need, they are not shy to help you to find your ways & concerns in Montevideo or to make sure you have everything you need for a comfortable stay in their place. I stayed for 6 weeks in march... More

As someone who has spent time in hotels and hotels in Montevideo, I have to say that Puntoberro is one of the nicest places I´ve seen in my travels. It is not even like being in a hostel but more like staying in the home of a good friend. The proprietors Gaby and Juan are always on the premises, making... More

Just there January 2013 and bedbugs in a shared room. Luckily, I felt them within a few minutes and saw them - everywhere. The hostel worker looked for another room and as a solo female traveler, I didn't want to share a room with 2 Brazilian older men so I slept in the staff room. Good thing = they didn't... More

We went on Christmas Eve, it was nice to hang out with them. I thought I'd miss the warmth of home, but the staff and other guests celebrated with a barbecue and good wine hosted by the hotel. Clean rooms, shared bathroom (there is only one suite with private bathroom), the bathroom cleaning was ok, much depends on the current... More

Though is well located, in general its not very clean and tidy. The common places are small and the bathrooms are not clean at all. Wiffi is very week in the rooms and the transfer they offer to the airport is expensive. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is ok. I heard there are no other choices, so I... More
