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!
