A very friendly (including a 420 friendly) place. The rooms are quite packed, that's just what hostels are. Price range from $16 to $20. It's a great place to meet other travelers.You can cook your own food, but sometims the kitchen gets crowded.

Well what an experience, the only good thing about this hostel is its location! I didn't enjoy my stay here at all. No linen until 11pm at night and when asked enormous times about it, it seemed they were upset/angry at us for asking, It didn't help that my partner was sick and needed rest! Our room looked and felt... More

Location ok for Main Street & bus station. On a side street so not so noisy. Hostel pretty empty and not a lot of food left at breakfast, but I was there right towards the end time. One guy who worked at the hostel spoke English, a lot of signs in Spanish only so I'm not sure if they get... More

this hostel has more than enough space, the kitchen is very good equipped (there is more than enough of everything) and big and there are enough bathrooms. the rooms are big and through the big window enters a lot of the warm sunlight. the yard with the banana plant is cute and on the terrace there is a bar and...

Thank you Sergio, Gabriel, and Manu for making me feel at home, I know that is cliche, but you guys nailed it! Sergio cooked up an asado in the wood fireplace that really set the mood, re uruguayo! I didn't want to leave and will be back in a week! Don't forget to walk down a block to the river... More

This hostel is ok. The dorms are plain and the beds could do with an update. The showers were irratic but warm overall. The kitchen is large and well equipped. The communal lounge is ok but the TV is always on so it makes socialising hard. There looked like a nice outside area but we went in winter so obviously... More

Overall we enjoyed this hostel. Things we didn't like was that the lock on the door to our room didn't work...you could jiggle the handle and it would unlock the door so that was a negative. But the staff and other guests were nice, the price reasonable and the water in the showers was hot!

Super friendly guys running this place (see photo). Hostel is in coolly designed, 70's style, retro house. Some of the dorm rooms are better than others (6 bed room is tops). Laid back rooftop patio is great for meeting fellow travelers (but way too many people smoking up there - gross). Overall a fave. Above average brekkie too. (Just avoid... More

O.K hands down one of the best place we have been to. Staff is SO nice young vivid laughing, good music, tons of food, we cooked Israeli food and they made Uruguay cusins. The bath and showers are clean the rooms are big with lockers, and upstairs there is a great terrazas with hammoks and just a chill vibe. If... More

Honestly this hostel leaves me with not much to write home about. It wasn't amazing but it wasn't bad at all. The lady who greeted us was friendly and the other guested seemed relaxed in her presence. The room we stayed in was in my opinion horrible. We had a twin room which was bunk beds in a tiny tiny...
