Caballo Loco Hostel

Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights. The location is great, the staff are super friendly, the place is clean and has a cool ambience. If you're planning to stay in a hostel, this is definitely a good choice!!
Highlights - pool, games, air conditioning, nice little terrace area, breakfast included, staff helpful, cool restaurants in the area (kitchen in the hostel if you prefer to cook), nice boutiques for shopping nearby.

Stayed: January 2014, traveled with friends

This relatively new hostel is a great place to stay at when you visit Montevideo. It is runned by two guys who are both really nice and help you with everything you need. The breakfast is great with a lot of different fruits. On Friday, the guys made dinner and it was delicious! Lots of different meats on the BBQ... loved it.

Amazing hostel and even more amazing hosts! Thy were the nicest and most helpful people we have met on our trip. To give you an idea - they started searching another hostel for us when we thought we could find something cheaper... That was just the beginning, but at that moment we knew we don't even want to go anywhere else, and when we saw the rooms and the common areas we knew it is a keeper! Loved the hostel design and the location. They have bright and spacious rooms and comfortable beds. The breakfast was the best we had had on this journey! You can see right away that people put a lot of thought in what they do or serve you. Exceeded our expectations in every possible and impossible way! I'm usually too lazy to write reviews, but this place (and people) were so great that I just had to tell the world about it!

This hostel is relatively new, but it is perfect. It is not an exaggeration. This was the last hostel we had in our 3 month south-america trip, and it was by far the best we stayed in. The hostel is one block from the main square and has been renovated for 2 years by the owners. The bathrooms and kitchen are super functional and cleaned several times per day.

The staff are also extremely friendly and helpful. They are genuinely interested in you and your wellbeing. Personally I find it hard to believe reviews that are all positive, but we honestly cannot find a single ting to write here that is not positive
