Liked: The breakfast is simple, but great! The beds are confortable, you can rest and sleep good at night because almost all rooms are in the first floor, far from the commom area and the reception. The location is great, near of everything.

Disliked: The lockers are in the floor itself, under the bunk beds, but it seems like they never clean inside them. If you don't need to use a locker, than that's ok. That's the only thing I dislike about this hostel.

Liked: great location, great set up, warm showers, near markets and close to the night life. well organized room wise and has all the facilities you would need

Disliked: staff are not entirely helpful and are more or less just hanging out there, tried to book a tour and didnt get to it because the staff said "go to the pier, and youll find it" with a shrugged off attitude. the hostel has a clicky feel with very little atmosphere. Punta Del Este is an extremly expensive city!

Liked: The staff was very helpful with directions and also booking my next hostel and trip to Punta del Diablo.

Disliked: I didn't like about the hostel that the activities they offer are pretty much not existent while is not summer time. That goes also for the Punta del Este in general.

Liked: It's reasonably well located, a short walk from the "resort" part of town and even closer to one of the best beaches in Punta del Este. You could easily walk to the beach to go surfing for example. There is a large and comfortable lounge, very inviting in winter when the open fire is going.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Good location and beds quite comfy. Good Internet access.

Disliked: Staff were rude, unfriendly and unhelpful (in most cases, one or two were friendly) barking at guests to do the washing up sometimes before they had finished eating. Communal loos were often filthy and blocked. The bar was only open a few nights of the week, and if you wanted to go to sleep earlier, music was often blaring out from cars parked in the hotel drive. All in all not an enjoyable stay and I would urge fellow travellers not to stay here, despite what others might say on this page.

Liked: Staff was very nice and helpful. Good atmosphere and pretty easy to meet people.

Disliked: The weather sucked so the location was not ideal. Prob best to stay in Ciudad Vieja. Very few showers for the number of beds (only three total available).

Liked: Although it´s well located, the city is small, so it´s not hard to find a hostal with a good location.

Disliked: THE STAFF. When we arrived they werent helpfull, one of them was rude, they didn´t have the beds ready even until a few hours after the check in time. Rooms are very dirty, internet very slow (we had to find some other place to use it). We asked for information about another touristic point, and gave us terrible information. Whenever we had any kind of question related to the hostal and it´s services, no one could give us an answer.

20 January 2012 Matt would recommend this property

Liked: There are alot of people who are staying here so it makes it very easy to meet other travelers. Its location is great because its only a couple of blocks or so to each beach either side of Punta del Este. The rooms are also away from the main lounge area so you dont have any trouble sleeping.

Disliked: The wi-fi didnt work half the time because of some connection issue on their end. The air conditioning would turn off in the afternoon sometimes so the room would heat up like an over after a while until we found out what was wrong with it. Some of the staff also look like they really dont want to be there which doesnt make it that fun to be around.

Liked: Location was good, easy to get to the beaches. Staff were nice.

Disliked: Punta del este in general doesnt seem particularly backpacker friendly. There were families only, the supermarkets poor and the restaurants too expensive or rubbish. That´s not reflective of the hostel though, the hostel was generally good.
