Montevideo Hostel
Reviewed 30 November 2013

I loved the look of the hostel (high ceilings, spiral staircase), but there's a lot to be desired. The staff didn't give us an introduction to the city (and didn't warn us of dangerous areas - we were nearly robbed), it was very loud (TV and ping pong both early and late), the bed linens were worn so thin that there were transparent and the internet hardly worked. The people working there were nice enough, but you have to ask specifically for the information you need. Also, it's really easy to take the bus from the airport into town (and it saved us nearly US$60). The hostel needs to put better directions on their website (ie: get cash, walk out the front entrance and the bus stop is immediately to your left, take any bus that says Montevideo and follow its route on the map in your guidebook, it will take about 45-50 minutes). The information people in the airport are very helpful. We felt very safe and thought the bus we took from the airport was much nicer than your usual city bus.

the hostel has a great vibe. rooms are good. kitchen is very small but O.K.

the big problem is that it was hard to sleep for us because the rooms are right beside the communal area. turning off the music at 12pm and not cleaning breakfast dishes at 3am (really!) could solve this...
