Worst hostel I've been! There is mold in most of the walls, smells bad, seems like they don't wash sheets and pillows, there was dirt on the floor and lockers, kitchen was weird and washrooms were dirty. Staff is good, nothing bad to say about them, but the place in general is not good at all! You can get better... More

Hot showers, felt and was safe, and staff were friendly.... More

If you are looking for a place with a character, a place to find new wonderful friends, a place to have fun, a place that feel more like a home and a part of a big amazing family then in an ordinary sterile holiday accomodation, a place where you can feel the fascinating mixture of Uruguay culture and travellers from...

We stayed in this hostel for two nights in a 4 bed dorm as late twenties couple. The staff were very friendly throughout and the hostel was a nice relaxing place to stay.

everything about the Unplugged hostel is awesome! The staff is the best possible, they're friendly, have the best hints about Montevideo and Uruguay, always helpful!! The location couldn't be any better, it's in the best neighborhood for foreigners! It's pretty clean, organized, more than enough for you to interact, make friends or just rest. In the end, you are sure... More

An all round positive experience in a vibey, happy atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful and always around when you need them. I spent many nights chatting and having a good time there. The social is pretty much non-stop which made for some noisy times specially in season, but the bar and the 'patio' are great. Easy walk... More

Nice place to meet nice people! Great location, nearby market, beach, parks, bus stop. About 15 min from Punta Carretas, with a beautiful view of the sunset. Excelent choice to meet interesting people in a good vibe. Helpful staff and good accommodation.

We spend 2 nights in this hostel, and I must say that I really enjoyed it. Rooms were clean, it had quite good location (10 minutes walk to beach), and most of all great atmosphere! Also last night there was an amazing asado that was prepared by the staff. The nights weren't very silent. I had to use earplugs, but... More

Loved my stay at unplugged, the staff here is unbelievably friendly and helpful. Whether it was assisting me with exchanging money, teaching me how to prepare mate, or enjoying the night with a few beers. The rooms are typical of a hostel, nothing amazing, but not horrible. Comfy bunk beds, plenty of restrooms to go around, and a kitchen with... More
