This hostel is my absolute fave, on the coast of Uruguay! Wonderful pool, bar, staff, location! Will always go back.....like coming home!! Clean, spacious....Manantiales!!! Surf zone. Gorgeous sunsets and starlight, with nightime campfires/chill parties. Not the least expensive but definitely worth it!!!
