We spent only one night here but could have stayed much longer! The place is so cool, spacious, clean, comfortable and a little bit quirky. The owners were wonderful, giving us lots of advice and directions, taking time to ensure we would have the best of our short time in punta del este. If you're looking for a chilled out place near the beach, look no further!

Found travelling in Uruguay in early February during carnival so difficult, hard to find places and those you did find were extortionate. Also I was a bit worried as the bus approached punte del este and I saw how built up it was with tall appartment clocks everywhere.
But what a relief when we arrived at La lomita, a family house run by Rodrigo and Alexandra. Rodrigo is so helpful with telling us where everything was and giving us bikes and beach chairs and even drive us down to the supermarket and to the beach on our first trips so we knew where we were walking, but its so easy to walk to a lovely beach away from the skyscrapers thought the only non built up part of punte. Alexandra cooks lovely meals a couple of times a week where all the guests can sit round at chat. Lovely chilled out patio area me nice breakfast.
This place made punte for me.....I can't recommend it enough.
P.s. keep to Sam Raphael beach at about the 11.5km mark......Rodrigo will show you where....then you can avoid the hoards of people. Also the restaurant across the road from disco supermarket is great

After traveling around in South America for 3 months I went to Punta del Este to enjoy some relaxed days - it turned out that the La Lomita del Chingolo was the perfect place one can imagine for this purpose.

The hostel is located a bit out of the hustle & bustle of the center in a calm, green area just a 10min walk away from the beach (with great waves to surf or have fun jumping into). It's true that you have to take some time to get into the center but it's absolutely worth it if you want to charge your batteries. The house itself has everything you need: a fully equiped kitchen for cooking your own food (to save money), great common areas to relax in the garden (on a sofa under trees), good wifi connection, Surfboards and Bikes for rent, Bodyboards and an umbrella to take to the beach for free...

Like already mentioned the breakfast is also great: fruitsalad, cereals, cake, sandwich, tea, coffe and juice let you have a good start. In the end I stayed more than a week, got some work done, enjoyed 2 tasty asados (10$ each) in the garden, got some decent sleep and catched some waves at the beach.
As it's a guesthouse you stay together with the family who is running the place - they are good hosts and pretty relaxed. Moreover you can ask for tips on what to do and how to get around in Punta

The only downside: if you really want to go out you have to pay a taxi which is not that cheap - if you can share it with more people it's still an option. But be prepared: Punta is one of the most expensive places in high season!

Room Tip: Private rooms are located in the garden where it is really quite - the dorm is located inside the ho...

What a gem. Alejandra and Rodrigo are so great - they are amazingly kind an helpful and their guesthouse feels much more like you are just a friend visiting in their home. Highly recommended. One suggestion is to check out where it is on a map first, as my driver from the airport thought he knew where it was, but we had to consult a map to find it.

My two friends and I stayed in the four person room. We had an AMAZING time. The place is beautiful. It was great that we were not located in the middle of the city. It was quiet and beautiful. We had amazing dinners and the breakfast was incredible! I would DEFINITELY recommend staying here.

I strongly recommend this place to stay. I went alone and meet new people from all over the world due that Rodrigo and Alejandra make you feel in family and present all people who are staying. The room was good and clean. the breakfast was also good.

We stayed in this house for two nights and felt very welcome! The taxi ride to the hostel was a bit a odyssee and much more expensive than expected. But after telling this to Rodrigo, he called the taxi driver and in the end we got a free taxi ride back to the bus terminal two days later. Rodrigo explained the whole area around punta del este to us and gave tips and tricks, where to go and what to do. He breakfast in the house was great (first time we had enough after a breakfast). One evening we ate with the hosts and two other guests at home - great experience and very tasty! As we first arrived we thought, that it is almost to close to stay in the house of that hosts, but after a few hours it was not a problem anymore.
We can really recommend this place to stay, while you're in Punta del Este!!!
