Dolce Vita Hostel
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Located in a nice neighborhood of Montevideo, I found the Dolce Vita Hostel a good and convenient place to stay. It's situated in a good distance from both Ciudad Vieja and the beach, Saturday there's a farmer's market round the corner and the Sunday flea market also is within walking distance. The dorms are spacious, and the comfy bunk beds have built-in lockers. If it's full it could probably do with more showers, but since we stayed there in low-season that never was a problem for us. Despite having a lot of shared space, in my opinion it lacks a proper common area for socializing. Although as far as I know this is now being remidied by making more use of the rooftop, which is a rather cool spot to hang out on a warm evening, The staff is super friendly and there's lots of information on things to see and do in Montevideo. Definitely recommend!

The two former "Italian" owners are awesome. They help you with everything and they are very welcoming and nice. The hostel itself is also a good place. Its half way between the old historical center and the Bus Station. Its easy to go to the beach from there and the whole city center is really not very fare.
I can really recommend this hostel!

We stayed here for 3 days, and it was a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly, the breakfast is good, and the rooms are warm. The hostel has a great layout. Depending on what you're looking for, the location may not be the best-- it doesn't seem to be in the touristy neighborhoods, but rather is equidistant from several locations. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
