Really cool hostel to relax some days in the sleepy Montevideo! Good location, walking distance to Ciudad Vieja and Rambla. Beautiful terrace to chill, drink and smoke. Friendly staff, breakfast included. Normal shared rooms with toilet outside. The best is the good vibrations of the place and people. Go there if u like relaxed life!!

Really dirty hostel! There was weed on my bed when I arrived and I was told not to worry about it. Then the staff/friends of staff woke me up at 3am to try sell me weed! I couldn't believe it! There are way better options. Not very useful information about the city either.

I visited this hostel because it was cheap and it looked good. At first glance, it was also good, I and my friend booked us in for 2 nights, because we were going to some place else. First night I was put on a 16 people's rooms, and my friend on a 6 person room (with only girls). I diden't... More

I am a backpacker, 37yrs old, 40+ countries visited, travelling with partner. We chose this hostel based on the cheapest price and good reviews. Spent one night in 10 beds dorm on the first floor for 290pp. ROOM: 10 beds with super thin mattresses squeezed together, lockers in the room, sheets provided, no towels. The room has an air conditioning... More

Hostel with lots of social space, big kitchen and large rooms. It was difficult to communicate with some staff but they were all friendly. Good washing service, basic breakfast (only cornflakes). Rooms a bit dusty but beds were comfy. Most guests seemed to be locals.

My friend and I were trapped in Uruguay for a month because I lost my passport. However, this proved to be a blessing in disguise as I spent the majority of my time at Willy Fog hostel. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are clean and the kitchen is spacious. Breakfast is flexible and the upstairs terrace makes for a... More

We are young backpackers from Belgium and we slept here for 2 nights . The atmosphere is great ! Everybody is kind and super chill! It's like entering a group of friends. Nice music, clean bathroom! The hostel is a little bit cold though. Probably because it's so big and it is also winter. For young people who want to... More

I showed up with a friend quite late in the evening, as another friend had made a reservation on our behalf. When I walked in I had the worst gut feeling I’d ever experienced when entering a hostel, and I’ve stayed in some pretty basic holes during my 10 months of travelling round Latin America. We had to wait for... More
