Overall this a nice hostel, with a swimming pool
It's a boutique operation, not a cookie cutter hostel. You can tell the owner put allot of effort into the design, from the fun logo to the slab of granite in the bathroom
Great Staff, very friendly and helpful
Swimming pool. Only three other hostels in Punta have pools and this one has the best location. Trust me on the very hot days you really want to stay near a pool
Extremely clean, great kitchen, bathrooms.
Location is OK, not great. About a 5 minutes walk to stores and markets
Some fun activities at night, such as movies and live music
Be careful checking in when it comes to the price. Some of the people at the front desk will want to charge you a bit more. Same with the bar. When you order a beer the default they want to give you is the larger size but I found this all over Uruguay tourist areas. It's not that they are dishonest because they are not but they do tend to try to upwell you. Seems to be part of the culture.
As pointed out in another review beds don't have proper mattress but foam. I thought they were OK but I heard some complaints.
