Good staff, friendly people, and the owner is in the establishment almost all the time. Bedrooms are large and spacious, clean and aery. By the time i was there, could see peeling paint on the walls. Another problem: bedrooms without lockers. Breakfast is not so good, but in other hand, free coffee was avaiable almost all time. Bathrooms are clean... More

Nice place, nice and very helpful staff, coffee available almost all the time, little breakfast with bread and marmalade and juices, pool table, kitchen, little, cheep, local bar just next to it, good internet, AC. Little bit loud in the evening (good to have earplugs if want to sleep early), only one person speaking English.

Nice and cheap option with nice people near Ciudad Vieja. Usual services like kitchen and wifi included. Only 5 minutes walk until the placa de independencia and some of the best bars in Montevideo. Its cool.

We stayed for a week over New Year for a city visit. Location between port and centre of the old town was perfect for us. Facilities were fine, with kitchen and common areas - great if like us you don't want to spend all your budget eating out! But the best part was the staff, who were kind, helpful and... More

Don't get this wrong, this is a hostel and not a hotel, and as a hostel I found it outstanding. Location is nice, rooms are clean, staff is friendly, food is great. Walking distance to the center of the city and the old city gate, to "mercado puerto" and tourist attractions. Stayed there twice already and was surprised when the... More

The only good things are walking distance to main attractions and availability of wi-fi. Located in run-down street. No heater in room plus cold draft from the open yard. Toilet and bathroom not in good condition but there is hot water. Staffs not friendly or not around when needed. Room was very messy. The hostel need updating. At USD15 per... More

I traveled here with a group of friends, but I still felt unsafe. The area is NOT good, and thats why the price is so low. Especially if you are a female traveler, consider spending more money to be in a better area. The rooms are okay, a bit disorganized and the bathrooms aren't very clean (not horrible, but not...

Stayed for one night in this hostel in the dorm. Nice and quiet and great helpfull staff. Kitchen and bathroom were clean,even as the bunkerbeds. Still there has to be fixed a lot, like the shower and some doors were not completely ok. Still good value for money in a capital.
