I don't have much to say about this hostel, but the 85% customer rating on the hi hostel website shouldn't be! We got here just a few hours ago and woke up in the middle of the night with bedbugs crawling all over us and our things. We should've realized that this place was infested when one of our roommates...

This hostel is ok, but not much more. It doesn¨t feel that clean which is never a good start. There are some good points. It is out of the city which if you want to feel a bit more disconnected then they´ve achieved that. You can walk or take a bus quite cheaply. The lockers thing is a concern, I...

One of the best hostels i've been to! At the minute i arrived i felt really comfortable there.. the staff is great! They organize EXCELLENT BBQs! Pocitos (the neighborhood where it is) is the safest in Montevideo, so you don't have to worry about getting there late!

Personally, i think this hostel is way down there and there must be better available for the price in Montevideo. NEGATIVES: - Locks on lockers are laughable - little eyelets for you to put a padlock through that can be pulled out by hand. - No hot water in the morning. - Staff coming into our dorm at 2am, slamming...

The Hostel is very good, not too expensive. The accommodations were nice, very good beds to sleep. There were 3 bathrooms, with heating system, which is very good in the cold and windy winter. My only complain is the Kitchen, too small and it didn't have enough kitchenware for doing basic stuff. The peolpe there were nice, helpful and always...

Very small rooms. NO locks on doors. "Lockers" in rooms are simple wooden boxes with eyehole screws twisted into the wood to attach a lock (can be ripped out). Kitchen is tiny. Hostel is fully occupied by the family that runs it - and they overtake the entire kitchen/dining and TV area. Showers had absolutely no pressure (took 10 mins...
