I've been there with girlfriend in low season and I am sure that we were in a different atmosphere. Calm, just some people talking, cooking and spending the time. In the summer, for sure its a place to party, with music, swimming pool and drinks. We really like: information, staff is really nice, good, kitchen is enough. Not so far...

Great hostel just outside the centre of town in Punta del este! We stayed way to short in this place as it is close walk to everything and the place is both clean and beautiful! You have a pool a bar, clean kitchen and great bedrooms. It's 2 min to the beach as well. Could not have foud a better...

Writing a review on here as F&F hostel cancelled my booking on hostelworld meaning that I couldn't leave an honest review on there. All the reviews on hostelworld are blatantly fixed. The pool and bar area are the best thing about this hostel - everything else is in total disrepair. A hostel that size with only one bathroom with a...

This Hostel is beautifully designed it has a pool in the middle and the rest of the hostel is built around it our room was up a flight of spiral stairs and had a beautiful view over the pool, they have one of the most impressive book exchanges i've ever seen for any fellow book geeks who are fed up...

We are travelling around South America as a late twenties/early thirties couple and we stayed in F&F hostel in an 8 bed dorm. We arrived at F&F to discover that despite having been charged a deposit, our reservation had not been made and due to it being high season they only had spare beds in an 8 bed dorm which...

The hostel has all basic facilities and is clean, but is very compact, overpriced and sports a semi-pretentious atmosphere. I can't understand how anyone can rate the staff positively. We were greeted with nothing but rudeness, told at 7:30am after a long overnight bus journey when making our own coffee, that 'this was a hostel and you can't just use...

We thought that FF was an awesome place to hang out and relax for a few days. They're about a 15min walk from town but have free bikes to use if you want to get around. The rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly.

The exterior shots of the outdoor area and pool make the hostel appear a lot bigger than it is, when in reality it is very compact. The rooms especially, we found to be extremely cramped whereby as many bunk beds as physically possible have been squeezed in to maximise capacity. My main concern during our stay was that on the...

This was a nice place, very trendy and interesting. They have lockers for your stuff, but you need to bring your own lock. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They boast an excellent location, but it's a 10 minute walk to the store, the beach, downtown, etc.

2 of us stayed in a 10 bed dorm, seemed warm at first, but only proceeded to get extremely hot over the night. It was 20C outside, and over 35 inside by morning. The room smelled so bad from everyone sweating it had a taste to it. I asked to change us after the first night, hostel world showed availability...
