Decided to stay here after seeing the recommendations in a couple of guide books. Lovely building and clean rooms. However the breakfast was terrible. Also the hostel was filled with a huge tour group and so it was not a very social atmosphere as they kept to themselves and we seemed to be the only other people staying here. We...

One of the best hostels, anywhere, Friendly, helpful staff . . . good clean rooms, convivial atmosphere . . . nice location on the edge of the city center. Easy to get taxis and buses for the 3 Cruces bus terminal, neighborhoods such as Pocitos, etc. Fantastic place to start the trip!!!

On hostelworld the description said that the hostel was renewed in December. This turned out to be old information. The bathrooms of the hostels were renewed December 2012. The photos are from 2009. The breakfast was very basic and the rooftop bar could use a make-over. Matresses and pilows were very old.

Worst breakfast in six months travelling in South America , made a mistake of booking this hostel. Rooms were clean and staff friendly , but was expensive and thinks it is the Hilton by the way it charges . The hostel is central to the city and seems safe at night . Should have read the reviews on trip adviser...

The only good thing is that is close to the center.... Anything else.... My friend and I booked a room without to know that at the end was on the basement, on the next building.... Dirty sheets, no AA or ventilator in a roon with no windows and just one pc for a fulllllll hostel.

Really good hostel close to town but still tranquil. Lots of hangout space, in the lounge room talking to staff and other people staying there, around the kitchen and up on the balcony (aparentely good in the morning to listen to music and meditate before your day :) ) Staff very friendly and helpful, people who were staying there at...

I think it's an old building, so staying at Red Hostel had a bit of a nostalgic feeling to it, and I quite enjoyed my stay. The hostel has a nice kitchen and terrace, really good breakfast, and a magnificent fireplace. I was there during the off-season, so not many travelers meant I had a nice room to myself. The...

Intendencia Municipal (panoramic city view), Centro de Fotografia de Montevideo and Museo de la Historia del Arte are points located on the same street.There is the Mercado de la Abundancia where you can buy artcrafts and eat typical...
