Liked: I definitely would recommend this hostel. The staff was very helpful and nice. The building is quite comfortable, with a great terrace and it has a good location. The breakfast was very good too. Great place for socializing!

Disliked: It could be more clean and the building needs some restauration. The big dorm doesn't have good ventilation, I would recommend to not stay in that one, the small ones are much better.

Liked: A really nice and friendly travellers environment. Very good location near the exiting afro-uruguayan neigbourhoods. The service and knowledgement of the staff really makes a difference and they make it easy to feel right at home upon arrival.

Disliked: Nothing big really. Maybe the dorms were a bit on the darker end but thats nothing compared to all the positive qualities.

Liked: The decor is very bohemian and airy. It doesn´t feel cluttered. I love the terrace, which is very large and has a good shade, and inside there is ample sunlight thanks to a skylight that extends two hallways.

Disliked: Ernesto left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great communal chill out area. Looks modern. Beds are comfortable. Close to a good supermarket. Cheap-ish beer available at reception. 15 mins walk to the centre. Only 10 mins in a taxi to main bus station. Some members of staff had limited English but still were very helpful.

Disliked: Dirty showers - hairs everywhere!! Kitchen always really busy, not very clean. Not enough pots and pans, etc. Neighbourhood doesn't look as though it would be safe at night.

Disliked: Bathrooms had no paper. Ran out of food at breakfast and staff did not notice.

Liked: Staff was very helpful, free wifi. Breakfast was okay. Rooms were clean and tidy.

Disliked: Rooms very crowded, lockers broken or would not provide any secure storage. Toilets were horrible: One door could not be locked, toilet paper was often missing across multiple toilets, flushing did hardly work with people leaving their waste in the bowl. Last night, the lights were broken and it was pitch black. Four showers of which two could not really be used as the shower head could not be attached. Also the water supply was more like a drizzle causing at most medium water to arrive only after 8 minutes. Some doors to the showers did not provide privacy with missing panels.

The property's response is...

Liked: Great vibe. Nicely laid out with excellent communal areas. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful.

Disliked: Showers are a bit basic and the toilets are mega uncomfortable due to the proximity of the doors (which are saloon style) to your knees.

Liked: The hostel is quite new and has a cool design. Plenty of room and very secure in a good area. When I was there I had a whole 6 bed dorm to myself. Wifi, Air con.

Disliked: Some of the design is flawed because any noise from the main area downstairs echos into the rooms. For guys the bathrooms/showers could be better designed. Few staff speak English
