Liked: Interesting old building with a cool rooftop terrace. Good staff, friendly and helpful. Spacious dorms.

Disliked: At the time I was there, it was very cold inside at night and most of the time not many people there. I didn't like the common area in the basement, which is huge, but not very comfy/welcoming for my taste. But there is another small one at the reception which is ok. One night a big group stayed at the hostel and partied all night, so it wasn't easy to sleep as the dorm has an open window to the backyard. I stayed in another hostel, which is way better, location more central, beautiful decorated, garden with pool, better vibe, better breakfast. But if I should come back to MV and the other hostel were full, I would stay in Dolce Vita again.

Liked: The location is great, it's easy to walk to all the important places. Staff is really helpful and shows you everything on a map right on arrival. The house itself is an old colonial building which looks really beautiful. Pretty clean as well.

Disliked: Maybe breakfast offered in Brazilian hostels spoilt me, but there's not really much to choose from and the bread is rather dry. Some fruits and ham would be nice as well.

Liked: This hostel was a really nice surprise, didn't know much about it before coming there but ended up staying one extra night. The owners and the rest of the staff were really friendly and helped with every problem you might have and gave really good tips what to do in Montevideo also the location is right in the middle of things in a quiet neighborhood. This is a great hostel if you just want to relax in Montevideo, not a party hostel where everybody stays up blasting loud music until 3am.

Disliked: Breakfast was nothing spectacular but that's often the case in other hostels too. Also the private room is right next to the kitchen area so if you want to sleep longer than other guests having breakfast that might be a problem.

Liked: Perfect hostel to relax for a few days. I wanted to stay for 4 days and ended up staying 10 days. I stayed there between Christmas and New Year´s and the stuff were really friendly. They made for us dinners for Christmas and new years eve and we had fun parties on the most perfect roof top terrace! As well the common areas are very comfy and spacious. In the cellar they have a bi flat screen TV with international channels with comfy couches and a pool table. As well quick internet and WIFI. Kitchen and bathrooms are very clean and in the dorms there is plenty of space. Location of the hostel is great as well, about 15 mins walking to the old town with lots of restaurants and shops etc., as well to the next beach is about 10 mins walk. What can I say just the perfect hostel!

Disliked: NOTHING!

Liked: Really wonderful staff who are very helpful with everything and give you a fantastic welcome. The location is pretty good and the rooms are excellently sized. The beds are very comfortable and you have a lot of space to put your things. The breakfast was basic but nice.

Disliked: There weren't many people staying there when I was there which meant the atmosphere wasn't as good as it could have been but all the same the hostel ensured that with the few people who were there, there was a nice atmosphere. There was a really nice christmas dinner which created a nice atmosphere.

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.

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!
