Stayed here with a group called Remote Year, they booked it for us for one month. It was fine and had A/C but it was just very old and dirty looking. Also saw a few cockroaches... internet was good though.

Hotel is city downtown, breakfast is honest,room we used was so poor and not clean enough, yet we managed to ask room keepers to keep it as clean it was possible. It was my first and last time in this hotel.

This is a good value place. It is centrally located and provides a good breakfast for the price. Sure, it is not the cleanest and newest but the value is good for a cheap place to sleep. We paid $35 including taxes just walking in off the street. It felt safe and no problems, just basic with private bathroom and...

The Good: Good location, a couple of blocks from Plaza Independencia; Decent breakfast The Bad & The Ugly: Not worth it, definitely not 3 stars as shown - the reception looks deceiving as you'd think it's a decent hotel, at least clean, but once you get to the room..... - Extremely dirty room from the walls to the carpet, bed...

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in Montevideo, look no further. The Austral Hotel has everything you need; a bed, bathroom and TV - however the rooms are dated with many maintenance issues. The door/ window would not open, the toilet leaked water everywhere and the main light did not work. Breakfast was decent and filling.

They want to make you believe the hotel is modern, we booked on booking.com. Whn we arrive we were quite surprised, but in a bad way. The hall smell like gas, couches are old, carpet almost have holes on it... The room has a good size but the walls are dirty, lots of stains and marks, the bed covers are...

Pretends to be modern, but it is just careless. Rooms are clean but the walls have humidity stains, water flow in the shower is minimal, illumination is poor, front rooms are noisy. Check other options before you choose this hotel.

This hotel is a very basic hotel located in the city center. It was ok if you only need to sleep, however the rooms are not very clean, very old fashioned and the breakfast is very basic and not good quality. The price is ok

Everything's quite fine about this hotel (considering the price!) except for the lack of hygiene. It's not blatantly dirty, but if you're the kind of person who would think twice before letting your toothbrush rest on a hotel surface, then keep looking around. I would just recommend it for a solo traveller who values privacy more than anything but cannot...
