If you were tossing up between staying in old town (close to all the colonial buildings/business centre but a bit dodgy and not that impressive) and further out, stay further out in the suburb of Pocitos! It's an upmarket suburb (safer), right on the beach with tree lined cobblestoned streets. Destin26 is well positioned in the neighbourhood. 10 min walk... More

The good: The internet is screaming fast. From what I hear, the whole country has pretty good internet and the government is trying to put fiber in every house. The location is pretty good too. Its right on a main street with some restaurants and close to the beach. Its a ways from La Cuidad Vieja though. The not so... More

The location is great. A few blocks from the beach in the upscale neighborhood of Porcitos. Beds are very comfortable, staff super helpful and friendly, very clean and a backyard to relax and sun bath. Would stay there again.

Amazing place, a 1940 house completely done up , full of character, very clean with very helpful owners and staff. 5 Minutes walk to the beach and 2 Min to the bus stop to the centre. I loved the breakfast that included fresh fruit and brown bread ( unusual in this part of the world). I highly recommend the place.

As soon as we walked in the door we felt at home. The entrance hall which leads to the living room is inviting, warm and clean. The manager greeted us immediately with a friendly smile and told us all about the place, showed us rooms and asked us a bit about ourselves, before we decided to stay for two nights.... More

I stayed here for 2 days, the rooms were clean and the common areas were tidy. It had a relaxed atmosphere and the staff were nice and accomodating. A nice breakfast was served every morning. I would definitely recommend this hostel. ------------------------------------

I just can't get over the price of the room. granted, the staff was very nice and the main part of the house was clean. but our ensuite room above the kitchen was like sleeping in the kitchen, the floors were dirty, and to call it ensuite was really pushing it - basically a WC with a shower head on...

Cozy, warm atmosphere. Full kitchen, great backyard and rooftop. Safe neighborhood, walking distance from Montevideo shopping and the bars. Warm staff, Ignacio is the man. If you're looking for a smaller more intimate atmosphere, music by a fire and a relaxed vibe this is the hostel for you! Super clean by the way!!!
