A really good hostel with comfy beds and excellent common areas. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking too. Wifi works well and the place is kept very clean. A good base to explore from.

Enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The rooms/bathrooms were clean and there was a good kitchen for preparing meals. The staff was very friendly. I must mention that Carolina was so sweet and helpful, she became an instant friend!

This is a good place. Good beds, good facilities. Big, well equipped kitchen, comfortable common areas, good breakfast. Staff is friendly and helpful and the location is convenient too, close to the historic centre of MVD.

The 10 bed dorm was quite expensive for what it was. The location and facilities were good though, with a big kitchen and pool table. The staff were helpful and gave directions to local areas like the supermarket and beach

Thai place was awesome! Starting with the huge painting that gives the place a special ambiance. The staff was incredibly helpful and one of them even took us out to a candombe night festival around the city (if you're in Montevideo on a Sunday night, you have to go and experience it; ask for it at the reception desk, they...

I really recommend this Hostel. The staff is really nice and helpful, and they even take you out in groups to do nice things that you wouldn`t discover by yourself. Great place to meet other travelers.

Friendly staff answered in detailed all emails which I sent before arriving in Montevideo. The building is old, but still in an acceptable condition ( the taxi driver had issues to locate the address). Basic breakfast, clean rooms & other facilities.
