Liked: Old house kind of charming

Disliked: Party with extremely loud music up to 1 pm then people who stay later and hang out in the patio where all the room are on, impossible to sleep until late I think the people running this place should run a bar and not an hostel , totally disrespectful if people who don't necessary want to party and just rest


The property's response is

This is a party place more than an hostel

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Nice atmosphere, location and staff. Breakfast was good.And the hostel has a great deal: if you book 2 hostels of El Viajero in different locations (so e.g. you book 1 night in Montevideo and 1 in Punta del Este) you get 1 night in the third hostel for free! (e.g. Colonia del Sacramento).

Disliked: There were not enough toilets and showers!! (only 2 for females!). There weren't a lot of people when we were there, so it wasn't a problem, but if there are many people.. By the way, all El Viajero hostels in Uruguay have this problem.The most rooms have no windows, which is why the rooms doesn't smell great (in fact they smell really bad).

Liked: Good location, Helpful and knowledgable staff. Clean and tidy premises. The hostel tries to create a good atmosphere by organising activities.

Disliked: More fruit for breakfast would be good, or something other than just one type of cereal and bread.

Liked: Good location, helpful staff.

Disliked: Dorms are pretty tight and stuffy. Also, outside liquor is not allowed and the drinks they sell are overpriced...a major pet-peeve of mine in any hostel.
