Close to bus station which is very handy. I was directed here by El Viagero as they had no space, but turned out to be...

I came to Punta del Este at 4:30 am, it was cold and rainy. I haven't booked any Hostel and decided to take the first Hostel on my way. It took me 5 min walk from the bus terminal to get there. The lights, decorations and some cozy energy attracted me to that place. I was lucky enough to get...

The Trip Hostel welcomed my friend and I with open arms and we immediately felt at home. We stayed at this hostel for 4 nights and it was hard to say goodbye.

I stayed at the Trip Hostel over New Years, and had the most incredible experience! The community vibe here is unlike any hostel I have ever been to. The parties are incredible and the beer they brew themselves is delicious. It's a home away from home

Upon arrival we were greeted by Gonzolas who was friendly and provided us with information regarding free breakfast, a map of the area and directions to the beach. Our room was ready for checkin and we shared a 6 bunk room. The room was small, however, it...

Diego and Marcelo are awesome. Really helpful and friendly. They have homebrew too! The rooms can be tight but in low or shoulder season it's awesome. Plenty of bathrooms and they seemed to be doing some renovations to make it even nicer for next season. Thanks guys!

“I preferred the 6 person room to avoid too many people who snore loudly :)”

“You might ask for rooms on the second floor if you want to avoid the noise from the common areas which are at ground level.”

“Avoid the private room which has no ventilation and is next to the communal smoking area. Mold and mildew are prevalent in the room.”
 of 5 bubbles THEBSTravelers, 2 Nov 2014 | Read review
“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.”
