Liked: It is a small hostel it a safe part of town, but a little away from everything. Workers ate Deffinetly helpful and know about the city and things to do.

Disliked: Not so clean, kind of away from the action and small. Also, bunk beds are stacked low and you can't sit on the bottom bunk.

Liked: Location is good, close to restaurants, bars and Pocito's beach, although the building is a little hard to find. It might be a good place to stay if you want to party and if you don't mind staying up all night.

Disliked: The place is too noisy. We stayed at the bedroom next to the reception and it was impossible to sleep. It was about 10 PM the hostel stuff had a barbucue at the rooftop with some other guests, and the music was too loud. After the party was over, the guy from reception was watching TV or receiving calls from friends all night. In addition, at 3 AM some people got to the hostel and they decided to chat right in front our door. Bathrooms weren't as clean as the reviews said and one of them had a window to the commom area (it was awkard).

Liked: The guys housekeepers are amazing, the building is very beautiful, the bathrooms are clean and big. In Arriba hostel you fell like stay in friend's home. The location is pretty good, closer the Pocitos beach and the Punta Carretas Shopping. If I go back to Montevideo, I'm sure that I'll come back to Arriba Hostel.

Disliked: The lockers are small, but everbody leaves the luggage on the floor with no problem. Mosquitos on my ear! Don't forget repellent.

Liked: Good wifi and has lockers, though just for your smaller bags. Staff all spoke great english and were really friendly and helpful. One night there was a BBQ on the rooftop which was great.

Disliked: The bunk beds were a little too short for me. The place can be a little hard to find, so make sure you have a map handy.

Liked: I really liked the staff and location here. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the staff would always ask the guests to join them for dinner (and cook!) Pocitos is a such a nice neighborhood, as well, and the bus to Ciudad Vieja takes only about 15-20 minutes. The place was quiet due to the season, which I appreciated. I stayed for 2 extra nights...

Disliked: nothing, really.

Liked: Feels like home! Incredibly friendly and genuine young staff (thanks, guys for all your help!!), who are trying their hardest to make everyone's stay perfect - it's as good as crashing with friends! Bathrooms are actual bathrooms (toilet, shower, sink etc. all in one)!

Disliked: Without a car, it's a decent bus ride to the city, but made up for by the short stroll to the beach.
