Liked: Nice back garden. Nice building. Comfortable beds. Comfortable seats in common room.

Disliked: Top 40 radio on at all times. A bit far from the centro compared to other hostels (but closer to the passable Montevideo beach).

Liked: The hostel is only a bus-ride down the main road to the centre of town and also the the bus terminal, which isnt expensive. We didnt see the streets of pocitos with shops and nightlife that were supposed to be nearby. Its a safe area and the hostel is clean and has a nice lounge area inside and outside to hang out in.

Disliked: The bathroom is pretty hard to have a shower in with a tiny shower and nowhere to put you clothes.

Liked: Staff were all lovely dealt with Joaquin the one night we stayed and he really went out of his way to help us get a taxi to the bus terminal to make sure we got our bus on time. Wish we could've stayed longer. Small hostel but really friendly vibe, good part of Montevideo and supermarket close by.

Disliked: Aranya left no negative feedback.

Liked: First of all, thanks for all of the staff that they were so helpful and friendly and they did the best like our friends... The location is ok, you can take a bus to go somewhere easily and the city is not so big to explore on foot also. Clean, hot water 24 hours. If you like 15 min walking distance, you can find clubs.

Disliked: nothing. All good...

Liked: This was one of the best hostels that I have ever stayed at! Nacho and his friends were great! he made me feel at home the minute that I walked in the door. Sipping mate and swapping stories together by the fireplace were the highlights. I ended up staying an extra day and plan to return. Great Hostel!!!!

Disliked: It was a bit cold at night so during the winter maybe a portable heater would be great. Other than that, it was perfect!

Liked: Peaceful and relaxed atmosphere in a quite small hostel. The hostel was nice and clean even if it was full the weekend when we stayed there and thats not very commun. The staff in the hostel was helpful and they even gave me a book that I found in the hostel when I didnt have any book to swop with.

Disliked: A bigger breakfast table would be useful when the hostel is full booked.

Liked: The neighborhood is nice, has good restaurants (not cheap) and it's easy to find fresh food like fruits. It also looks generally safe, from my experience at walking at night. There's also a good number of ATM's and exchange services around. Hostel staff is friendly, speak good english and are tolerant to broken spanish . The beds and linen were pretty good.

Disliked: Breakfast was very very simple.
