Jessica McCubbin thinks…

"Good wifi, hot and clean showers, comfortable beds and lovely staff.. All I really need in a hostel. Breakfast is fairly basic, but the multigrain bread was a great change from the usual! Definitely…"

Liked: it's clean, showers are warm and it's in a very good location. Gianluca helped me a lot by organising a walking tour of the city, recommending "asado" and generally being a great help. My bus was late at night and even though they had closed the hostel to paint they knew my bus was at night and kindly let me stay.

Disliked: nothing my stay in Uruguay was perfect thanks to the hostel and the help of it's staff

Liked: O hostel é tranquilo e a equipe é muito atenciosa e amigável. Eles gostam de cozinhar junto com os hóspedes e se preocupam muito em ajudar com a programação durante sua estadia na cidade. A localização também é muito boa.

Disliked: A parede dos quartos é fina, portanto você tudo nos quartos adjacentes, e algumas vezes pode incomodar, mas nada sério.

Liked: The guys running the place really take your comfort to heart. They have the info backpackers need and are super friendly. The kitchen is very well-equipped and there are lots of great lounge/chill/reading areas. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom was clean. The breakfast buffet is great and the wifi works well everywhere. After several months of travelling in South America, this is the best hostel. Keep up the good work!

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: The list is endless but starts with the super-helpful owners who are amazingly dedicated to making sure you have a good stay. There is a pool table and TV chill out room in the basement, a nice kitchen, comfy beds and I was really lucky with the other travellers I met- this hostel is a nice people magnet.

Disliked: Same with most South American hostels- I´m not a fan of white bread for breakfast but that´s pretty standerd.

Liked: A good location - half way between a nice beach and the older part of town with the museums - easy walking distance to both. A secure building - a doorbell to get in, so people can't wander in off the street. A small breakfast is included.

Disliked: The showers are a huge disappointment here - no water pressure at all.

Liked: Owners are nice guys and super helpful. Nice communal area downstairs. Not too crowded. Felt safe at night. Pretty clean considering 2 guys run the place.

Disliked: Location is ok, 30 minute walk to CBD. Breakfast not the most hygienic or filling (just white bread/toast and jams which are in uncovered bowls in the fridge). But Im sure they're open to suggestions.
