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.

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.
