The Trip hostel is the best hostel we stayed in!

The staff is awesome! It feels like being part of a big family
The rooms are always clean as the bathrooms
The kitchen is very well furnished and you have space to cook. The breakfast is very good as well.
Commun area are perfect : you can stay on the roof top, the barbecue area, or just chill inside in the sofa.
The Trip Hostel is also very well located : 2mn walking from the beach, 5mn walking from the bus station and the center, 15mn walking from the harbor. They also have bikes for renting at the hostel.

If you feel like partying you will love it! There is part of the hostel that seems like a bar and the staff is always ready to have fun.

But if you feel more like chilling, you can do so as well.

We were travelling for 2 months in south america and this hostel is clearly the best we visited. We spent Christmas and New Years Eve there. It was an amazing experience that I would recommend to everyone.

Thank you Gonza, Fede, Diego, Marcelo and all the others for this perfect days ;)

We were staying one night in this hostel in Punta del Este. They had good prices, nice staff, nice hostel, air condicion...almost everything was good.
But unfortunately, at least that bed where I slept, was full of some bugs..."pulgas" or something like that.
Because in the morning when I woke up, my cheeks and my legs were full of bites..and now couple of days after they are still red and itchy, and there is so many, that its sure its from the bed. My friend didnt got so many bites, but she has some in her feets too.
So, otherwise nice place to stay, good location near bus station and everything, but hope they could take away those bugs... :(

I stayed at this hostel over Christmas, and the guys running the hostel made it a really enjoyable experience. Diego, Marcello and Gonzalo, 3 local guys do a fantastic job in making everyone visiting feel really special and welcome. From the moment you walk in, they are helpful and try to make you feel at home. They play great music in the bar and chill out areas downstairs, there is a nice terrace upstairs to sit out in as well as the shaded area by the entrance. They brew their own very tasty beer. The resort itself is a bit touristy, but the sea being quite clear compared to Montevideo is a bonus, and the hostel is very chilled and 'reggae' and personal, the total opposite of a chain kind of place. If you like somewhere to feel relaxed and comfortable, this is the place for you! Thanks guys!!!

Room Tip: I would say book the smallest bunk room you can - the 12 dorm when not full is fine, but if it is fully booked, it can be 'cosy'... but as most people spend little time in the room anyway, it shouldn't matter, as the atmosphere in the chill out spaces is great.

What a terrific hostel. My girlfriend and I rented their private room with ensuite bathroom for 3 days, we could not be happier with our decision. The service and friendliness of the staff is beyond amazing and they made the stay so much more worthwhile. The room had AC and cable TV with HBO. The kitchen was very well stocked with cooking ware and cutlery. The hostel bar had ample and comfortable chairs and tables as well as a great micro-brew beer from a local Uruguayan for only 120 pesos a large bottle, it was truly delicious. The hostel is very centrally located, only a 5 minute walk from the bus station or beach. I would recommend that anyone stay here while in Punta del Este.

We stayed one night at the Trip hostel on a short visit to Uruguay from Argentina and loved it. The hostel is perfectly located only a few hundred meters from the bus terminal. Easy to find with signs everywhere. The bathrooms, rooms and sheets are very clean. Our room was small with triple bunk beds which makes it easy to meet people. There is a nice terrace and nice common areas. The atmosphere is super welcoming and the hostel has a unique style. If you are looking for a clean, convenient, friendly place to stay with a true "backpacking feel" stay at the Trip Hostel.
