Nice place to stay, close to the beach, bus terminal and the casino!
The staff were very friendly, nice place to stay!
It's nice to stay at the hostel in the weekend, everyone party all the time! Cool place, one off the best hostel we have been on!

Best regards
Denmark !

Very fine hostel, with great personal! We unfortunately had a short stay in Punta and could not appreciate more of the activities the people had in there! Absolutely, I’d recommend the Trip Hostel to everybody!

Overall it's a good hostel but the walls are very thin (upstairs) so you hear everything in the next rooms and around you. The mattresses are poor and need to be updated. The staff are great and very welcoming. Excellent common areas - lounge downstairs, deck upstairs

The upstairs rooms are very basically built, feels almost like a shed or cubby house, with ply-wood walls.

If you come to Punte del Este and don't stay at The Trip Hostel I can honestly say you are missing out on an amazing time and your stay in Punte del Este will not be the same. From the moment I arrived at The Trip, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly (not to mention very attractive), and continued to be so throughout my stay. It is in an excellent location; walking distance to the bus terminal, beach, restaurants, bars, clubs, and casinos--really couldn't be better. The hostel has a very relaxed and chill vibe and definitely the place to be if you're looking to make friends and have a good time. The owners definitely know how to through a good party with great music and company. They also will give great recommendations of places to go out at and usually will provide a free wristband to get in. I will always remember my time at The Trip Hostel and would DEFINITELY go back. I miss it already!

I had been travelling for a while in Uruguay and everyone kept telling me Punta del Este is so posh! Depends on who you meet I guess... The 3 owners and the staff at The Trip Hostel are absolutely great!!! The are knowledgeable, super friendly and do get out of their way to help you. They took us to Casa del Pueblo and we jumped off the rocks to the sea, it was great. Atmosphere at the hostel is very nice, with a lovely patio. Rooms are clean and they have a very convenient kitchen. It was a great pleasure to meet you all and I look forward to seeing you in Europe :) sofia
