We are two friends who met in Ireland in 2006. After travelling and working around we came back to Uruguay convinced that the best way to continue with our trip, getting to meet people from all around the world and new life stories would be by having our own hostel. That´s why we opened Pocitos Hostel in December 2008. Our staff has been carefully selected; they are all very good friends of ours and even though they are young people (between 18 and 23) they surely are the best staff you’ll ever meet and for sure will never forget. The hostel is in the heart of ‘Pocitos’, the best neighborhood in which to stay in Montevideo. The house is unique and was built in the 1930´s by Bello & Reborati . It has big, light dorms and common areas. Pocitos Hostel is an "all year-round hostel". Here, when days are cold you can enjoy listening to music, reading a good book from our library, having a drink, playing board games or just sharing a moment next to our fireplace! Then, when the days are nice you can enjoy our backyard! Get a nice tan before going to Pocitos beach (2 min. walk) or just lie down on a hammock or an outdoor chair and forget about the world. Last but not least you cannot miss our "asado" nights with all the hostel staff and guests. Our beautiful house, the opportunities at the hostel, the neighborhood and our great service will make of your visit to Montevideo, a special stay. We are proud and happy to say (as some backpackers said) that Pocitos Hostel is ‘a home away from home’.
