Right in the historic-centre this quiet little hostel offers all you need. Spacious dorm with lockers. Enough and clean bathrooms and showers (good water-pressure with hot-water). Great breakfast; almost a buffet. Fast and stable wifi. And very friendly, helpful and fun staff (Spanish, Englisch, German). It's not a party-hostel, mind you. But the atmosphere exists nevertheless. Definitely recommend this place... More

Was only supposed to stay for two nights but due to waiting for a visa at the brazil consulate ended up here for over a week. Owner made me feel at home here and I enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen at night. Great location for walking to the oceanfront or into downtown. Breakfast was ample and there was use... More

We arrived in the afternoon and the staff were there to greet us and show us to our room. They seemed friendly and showed us around. There is free wifi which worked well. And the showers had hot water. We got to the room and the light was not working. The owner told us for that night to use the... More

Super friendly, knowledgeable staff. The older gentleman at the door was very welcoming late night as I took a ferry from Buenos Aires. Super high ceilings. At $19 USD a night this is normally pricey for me, but seriously one of the nicer hostels in #Uruguay. Set in the old town of Cuidad Viejo, the showers were boiling hot, and... More

If you are paying hostel prices this would be ok, but we paid $80 per night for a private room that was both dated and had not been properly cleaned. The manager was unfriendly and gave us no information about the city. The location of the hostel is also not great in that the old town in March was deserted... More

I stayed for one night given its proximity to the port. The facilities are excellent: beds are large, rooms are comfortable, bathrooms offer hot water and constant shower pressure. Kitchen facilities are modern and ample in both supplies and equipment. WiFi was fast in common areas. Breakfast was large, filling, and delicious. What really made the Hostel a great place... More

We stayed at this hostel in July when the weather could be pretty cold and rainy at times. The owners who you will get to know and love, will treat you like family. They were more than happy to let us borrow umbrellas when the rains came and even allowed us to pull up chairs to the fireplace that is... More

We booked for 2 nights and ended up extending our stay here because we liked it so much. The staff were extremely helpful and lovely, nothing was ever too much trouble and they were great at providing tips of where to go and what to do in town. They also helped to arrange bikes for us to better explore the... More

Such a great hostel! Everything is absolutely clean, the dorms are for few people, the ambient is really nice and the staff é sooo kind. Love this place, had a great time there. It is located right at Sarandi street, the main street in the Ciudad Vieja, really close to the local market, museums, cafes and other touristical spots.

We stayed here for one night only but we found this place very good. Location is right in the centre of old town. The owner is also the receptionist and therefore he is always here to help and give the best he can. High ceilings is one of the best things here. Everything is clean. Kitchen is fully equipped and... More
