A friend of mine recommended Ël Oriental for a one night stay. I went with 2 friends. I should point out that this is a hostel, and not a hotel, like some of the previous comments suggest. There are 3 bunk beds in each room. There were 3 of us in one room, the price is unbeatable. The beds, as well as the lockers and the keys are labeled with the name of a famours uruguayan person, it´s really cool.
The beds were comfortable and very clean. We were there in July and they had a heating system and extra blankets. We were not cold. We had a very pleasant time.
The Oriental is a very simple, yet charming place that I strongly recommend, it´s a great place for its value.
