Cozy, warm atmosphere. Full kitchen, great backyard and rooftop. Safe neighborhood, walking distance from Montevideo shopping and the bars. Warm staff, Ignacio is the man. If you're looking for a smaller more intimate atmosphere, music by a fire and a relaxed vibe this is the hostel for you! Super clean by the way!!!

We arrived from BA and stayed in a hostel in downtown Montevideo, which was not up to our standards and the downtown area feels unsafe.
So we moved to a new location just outside the centrum, in Pocitos. The Hostel Destino26 was very friendly, located close to beach and shopping facilities. As we were staying for a few months to arrange our residency to Uruguay the area and facilities at the Hostel suited our needs perfectly.
Also having stayed in various hostels in Europe & Turkey, this is one of the best Hostels i have stayed in. The best aspect of this hostel is the good and comfortable mattresses, constant hot water for showers, a well kept garden and an excellent kitchen for cooking.

It is a little gem, staff was more than helpful, our private room above the kitchen was a dream, breakfast great with a good variation, I keep going on and on.
The only bad thing is the location, but the buses run frequently and till late so it really isn't a big problem.
Want to go back to Montevideo just so I can stay there again!

Destino 26 is the best hostel (out of 5) I found in Montevideo. It's in Pocitos, the nicest part of town, a ten minute walk to the beach and the rambla, great neighborhood with lots of good bars and restaurants and very safe.
The hostel looks like a nice house converted to a hotel and is much classier than your average hostel. There's wood floors all around, a great kitchen , comfortable living room with big screen TV and high speed internet, nice grounds with trees, asado (barbque) and a terrace. The rooms have ample space, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are large and clean.
The whole place is very clean and the staff works hard to maintain the building. It's a family run business and Mauricio and Grace are dedicated to pleasing their guests. You will feel at home there and happy that you found such a bargain, especially after their generous breakfast.
If you want to get good rest stay at Destino 26 and take the bus (15 min) to the center rather than getting a hostel downtown.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are nicer with a balcony.

After looking at about 15 hostels in Montevideo and staying at 5, Destinos 26 is by far the nicest, cleanest, and friendliest one I have found. They have a GREAT kitchen, generous breakfast, roomy common room, and the loud music is nonexistant.
No I'm NOT an employee or owner, but here they are dedicated to pleasing the guests, not the whim of a staff member. If you're looking for a party hostel, this one is probably not for you. I have been traveling for nearly 5 years and seen hundreds of hostels in many countries; Destinos 26 is in the top 5% of my experience. I am confident you will enjoy your stay here. P.M.

Room Tip: All rooms I have seen are nice, not cramped, with window
