Ukelele awaits you in the best location of Montevideo. Our classic style house built in the 20's, is worth itself, with very spacious rooms, large common rooms and a huge swimming pool. (we are the only hostel in Mdeo that has one!!)
We are downtown in the Km 0 of the city, next to Barrio Sur (where candombe was born), and in ten minutes you can reach Ciudad Vieja (old town) walking! Only 300 mts separate us from the Rambla (seaside), one of the best places of Montevideo! Read more

Location Information

Ukelele Hostel
Maldonado 1183, between Gutierrez Ruiz street and Zelmar Michelini Street.
CP 11.100

Ukelele is located downtown Montevideo, 400mts from 18 de Julio (most famous street of the country) where you can shop anything you want. Only 300mts from la Rambla (seaside) where you can meet one of the best treasures of Montevideo, the coast. And 10 minutes walking of Ciudad Vieja, historical place. From this point you can go to every place you need to know in the city very easily. Theaters, Parks, Pubs, and all kind of restaurants... everything is close.
Few blocks from here, it is the Barrio Sur, and on sundays, you can hear the drums sound around the streets, in honour of the founders of Candombe.
