Lexi Randall-L'Estrange thinks…

"Great staff, location, and diverse guests. Fresh bread and fruit for breakfast was a real treat. Full kitchen available for use by guests. Nothing to complain about at all!"

Liked: ein wunderschönes hostel mit einer tollen dachterrasse, von der man über die dächer von montevideo schauen kann! die leute sind supernett, beantworten alle fragen, auch über das eigene hostel & montevideo hinaus und nehmen sich zeit für jeden einzelnen. das organic food-frühstück sollte man auf keinen fall verpassen. ansonsten ist alles tiptop sauber. das hostel liegt an der grenze des hafenviertels, das für touristen vor allem nachts nicht zu empfehlen ist, durch die tipps der leute weiß man aber schnell, wo man sich gut bewegen kann. ein super preis-leistungs-verhältnis!

Liked: We paid a bit more than normal but that's Montevideo. Worth every penny - it's a wonderful place. Relaxed, friendly, gorgeous rooms, great lounge for relaxing, fantastic breakfast (homemade bread), nice rooftop, great location. Was really quiet when we were there - felt like we had a posh London appartment to ourselves. One of our favourite hostels in 7 months of travelling. Not a "fun" place but perfect for couples like us wanting a characterful, quiet, relaxing stay.

Liked: Beautiful clean hostel. Massiv e rooms with high ceiling such a gorgeous hostel felt really homely. The roof top terrace had a great view. Break fast was great with home made bread and home made jams. Good cheap pizza place on the corner!! Great place to relax but would not reccomend for those wanting to party or meet people.

Liked: Nicely decorated rooms, impeccably clean showers and bathrooms with more than enough for the 3 private rooms and 1 dorm room that they have. New fixtures, cheery, rooftop terrace with hammock, wonderful breakfast spread with homemade bread. All profits go to sustainable tourism local projects. Fantastic facility, good location in heart of old city.

Adam Fell

16 November 2009 Adam would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel is very clean and the rooms are nicely decorated, with high ceilings and futon beds. However, the location is the main negative, being near the port and the whole area seems very run-down and sketchy. The breakfast was nice compared to other hostels in South America, comprising organic conserves, yogurt, cereal, bread, juice, tea and coffee. No rooms seem to have TV, and only one has ensuite facilities. There was WiFi, and 2 computers, however only 1 worked. Overall a nice hostel, but the location lets it down.

Disliked: Adam left no negative feedback.
