We stayed here for one night before we went to friends. It a nice hostel in a good place easy to find and close by some good restaurants. The place is nice but the staff makes the difference. So if you want to have a good stay go here.

Right in the historic-centre this quiet little hostel offers all you need. Spacious dorm with lockers. Enough and clean bathrooms and showers (good water-pressure with hot-water). Great breakfast; almost a buffet. Fast and stable wifi. And very friendly, helpful and fun staff (Spanish, Englisch, German). It's not a party-hostel, mind you. But the atmosphere exists nevertheless. Definitely recommend this place... More

Super friendly, knowledgeable staff. The older gentleman at the door was very welcoming late night as I took a ferry from Buenos Aires. Super high ceilings. At $19 USD a night this is normally pricey for me, but seriously one of the nicer hostels in #Uruguay. Set in the old town of Cuidad Viejo, the showers were boiling hot, and... More

If you are paying hostel prices this would be ok, but we paid $80 per night for a private room that was both dated and had not been properly cleaned. The manager was unfriendly and gave us no information about the city. The location of the hostel is also not great in that the old town in March was deserted... More

I stayed for one night given its proximity to the port. The facilities are excellent: beds are large, rooms are comfortable, bathrooms offer hot water and constant shower pressure.

We stayed at this hostel in July when the weather could be pretty cold and rainy at times. The owners who you will get to know and love, will treat you like family.

“If you're traveling alone, with a little bit of luck you can stay alone in the dorm with 2 beds.”

“They have a so-called 2-person dormitory room, which is indeed a private double room if you are 2 person. And the price is cheaper than the normal double room.”
