“Don 't go there, a night club not an hotel”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great location but impossible to sleep. Hôtel staff put loud music at 5 am in the reception close to the rooms. When I woke up to tell them they looked at me like if a were an alien who wanna sleep, the girl tell me good night laughing with her friend.

This hostel may be great in summer (it has that potential), but in the winter, go elsewhere. We booked a private room, and when we got there it turned out they'd given it to someone else. They offered us an upgrade to private room with bathroom, but made us pay the difference. When we got to our room we realized there was NO HEATING AT ALL and it was freezing. They put in a heater, but it failed to heat up the room during the two days we were there. I don't understand why they hadn't heated up the room in advance. Great location, but a pretty miserable stay-- it's a good thing Punta del Este is beautiful.

It's very close to the beach and downtown, where everything happens in Punta. I stayed in the room upstairs, that's very little but it's really calm. Perfect for a couple who wants the basic. In this floor there is a shower that's almost exclusive. All the people from donwstairs just doesn't know about it, so its very clean.
I don't know if I would liked to much to stay here if I was in the rooms downstairs. It´s the classic hostel there, a lot of people, noise, crowd.

Great location. Unfortunately my entire stay was ruined by the fact that the night staff have absolutely no respect for guests & the need to sleep.
I didn't pay $US30 a night to be kept up until 3am+ by the reception staff & his friends blasting loud music right next to the dorm rooms. Would NOT stay here again.

The hostel has a great common area and patio for barbecue outside, but that's about it. The rooms are super tiny and leave almost no room for luggage, and the kitchen is also impossibly small and can only be used by 1-2 people at a time. The bathrooms are lit by skylights (awesome!) but very dark at night. The staff speaks limited English but tried to help when needed. In the three nights we were here the other guests partied constantly... fun but very loud so it's something to think about if you're a light sleeper or not looking for a party atmosphere. Overall I would not recommend a long term stay here but it's ok for one or two nights.

A friend and I travelled from Buenos Aires to spend a few days in Punta del Este before high season in late November. The common areas of the hostel are cozy and built for guests to mingle. There's a large TV with a full set of cable channels and several couches surrounding it that's kept clean by the staff. It's a nice place to lounge and relax. The dining area is right above the common area - it looks small but there's enough room for everyone to move around. The kitchen is cramped but there's a lot of cookware and utensils for the guests. Everyone seems to do a good job of cleaning up after themselves. Guests are not permitted to bring their own alcohol into the hostel and have to buy directly from the hostel if they want to drink in the building. There's a nice little "bar" area surrounded by hammocks that is open late and also meant for guests to get to know each other.
The room where we stayed was fine - nothing special. The bathroom was a typical hostel bathroom, the maid came every morning and bleached the floors. The bidet didn't work and the toilet handle constantly had to be worked.
In terms of the staff, there were a number of chicos that worked the front desk who were friendly and helpful with recommendations. The only female staff member was less friendly, seemed more professional but was not so approachable.
Overall, I would recommend this hostel based on the location to city center and to the two main beaches and the bus station.
