A very nice hostel in the Punta del Este area (it's La Barra, about 7 km drive to Punta). The host, Walter was super friendly and helpful. The room was okay. The kitchen is fully equipped. There's a supermarket next block. Was easy to park a car.

Great location close to shops but not too noisy. Beach a 10 min walk. Lovely staff- Walter, Luis & David Rooms were clean & comfortable- especially the beds. Beautiful big window that opens up and the breeze cools the room (there is aircon too) Each bed had a big locker (own lock) Common areas were spacious & very new bathrooms....

They were incredibly nice, helpful and treated us like family. The location is great because you are just a short walk into the town of La Barra. The bus stop is right...

Well.. Where can I start? Uy Punta Hostel definitely exceeded my expectations. The place is 24/7 clean and neat, as well as very smoothly organized. In addition, what can be highlighted is the warm atmosphere among the stuff and guests. Something unique and very enjoyable! Place that I would surely come back. My experience: 5 STARS!

But, this hostel in La Barra is perfect for those that want to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the summer season in Punta, whilst being with...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Uy! 2 nights in early April and lived the hospitality and welcome environment Walter has set up. The hostel is perfectly located within the beach town of La Barra and was easy to reach via public bus from Punta del Este (15-20 min). We were also able to walk everywhere and enjoy the charming,...
