The hostel is kind of cute, unfortunately we chose the cheaper rooms downstairs with no windows, very dark and not very inviting. The breakfast was one of the best in all the hostels we stayed at. Staff was discreet but friendly. Bathrooms are a bit old. The location is quite good, close to the market.

The posada al Sur was just magnificent. The rooms were spacious and cleans. The breakfast at the hostel was a unique experience. The staff so excellent, very polite and very helpful with everything. They can also give you tips on what to do or where to go by night. I would definitely recommended!!!

Easy to find and an excellent value. Six bed dorm next to restaurant downstairs ensures an early wake up but is not too loud for the jet lagged. Bathrooms have plenty of hot water and staff are great.

This is one of the better hostels I've ever stayed in, with fantastic staff and guests. We stayed in a four bed dorm which was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was nice and the kitchen really well equipped for cooking. Bathrooms were clean and although there are not many of them we never had to wait. Nice rooftop terrace... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Beautiful building, with a very nice rooftop terrace. Very relaxed athmosphere, and the manager is very friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

We found this posada to be very nice and well maintained, the staff most knowledgeable and helpful, and generally very good value for Montevideo, which is generally more expensive than the rest of South America. The area is quite and safe, yet in the middle of the old city, only a few blocks to the famed Mercado de Puerto and... More

We really enjoyed this hostel. It's owned by a collective who also have a restaurant and shop in the building next door. It's a really attractive building with good kitchen facilities and a nice rooftop area to chill out and watch the sunset. Breakfast is provided although starts a little late at 8:30 so you may miss out if you... More

The manager is actually a very smart, personable and very educated person, if you can converse with him in Spanish. If you don't speak Spanish, then you will have issues here. There is a great ambience in the place, and during the night time, the manager often holds deep cultural and political discussions on the roof with little bites to... More

The dorm room we were given wasn't inside the hostel itself but was in the building next door. This was a huge problem because the dorm room was next to a kitchen. It was like sleeping in the middle of a restaurant. We were woken up one morning by the chef and an employee having a blazing row. We also... More
