Interaction with Guests

The apartment is located only 3 blocks from Plaza Matriz, the heart of Montevideo, with its Cathedral and Cabildo (its colonial Government House). Most sights are on your doorstep!
This part of Montevideo, known as Ciudad Vieja (the Old Town) is home to nearly all its historic buildings, museums and sights. It also offers a wealth of bars, restaurants, night clubs, art galleries, shops and more - and Uruguay's most important theatre, Teatro Solís. So most daytime and nighttime activities will be just a short stroll away!
Security in Ciudad Vieja is very good, since 400 CCTV cameras were installed and started operating in December 2013.
Several bus lines stop 2 blocks away, that can take you to any other part of Montevideo.
Secure parking is available nearby for about 14$/24h.
From Carrasco airport, you may take a taxi (~70$), shared shuttle (~20$) or bus (~2$) that will leave you at Plaza Independencia.
From Tres Cruces bus terminal, take a taxi (~6$) or bus CA1.
From Buquebus ferry terminal, it's only a 10' walk.

I absolutely would recommend this hostel to any traveller or couple. Fabrizio and Veronika were so hospitable. The balcony overlooks the port. The high ceilings add charm to this home. The bathrooms are especially clean. MOST importantly the location is excellent, within 10 minutes walk you can see almost all of the tourist attractions.
Fantastic! Marcos is a warm, kind, inviting and knowledgeable host—the kind of man that builds and designs his own home like a work of art, and has a secret jazz club in his basement, is the kind of man you want to meet in MV. Anytime I go back to MV I will make a point to drop in and say hi again. Thanks Marcos!
La casa es Linda! El barrio bonito por ser la ciudad vieja a pesar de la mala reputacion que tiene ese barrio, todos Los locales dicen que es peligroso caminar por ahi! En las noches sobre todo! Pero yo lo hice y muy tranquilo!! ;-)
Los anfitriones de la Casa no siguen Los consejos de airbnb! No dan ningun consejo a los turisras, ni siquiera un mapa!! Hay que sacarles la informacion con sacacorchos a fuerza!!! ;-0) fatal para uno!!
La presion del agua en las duchas es una porqueria!! No se puede uno bañar como debe ser y sobre todo lavarse el cabello!!
Ningun producto a dispocicion de Los huespedes! Ni servilletas, ni sal, ni thé ni azucar! Ni la sonrisa!! Y a algunos se les da los buenos Dias o Buenas tardes y ni contestan!!
Terrible ver un réfrigérador con llave!! Se siente uno como un ratero! Sin haber robado algo!! Eso es un Hostal y no Una casa chic como la nombran!! Es Triste! ;-( Pero vamos a decir que de mi pan sin gluten se sirvieron sin pedir permiso! Ja,ja,ja
Gracias por todo y de no ser por El espacio y la Luz en esa casa la estancia hubiese sido fatal!!
Pd: la recamara que me dieron daba a la calle! Y Una noche musica de antro hasta las 3h00am!! Pero vamos a décir que eso es lo de menos! ;-) eso es America Latina ;-)) ja,ja,ja
Fine hostel, well-equipped, clean bedrooms. The manager Alfredo is a really nice guy.
Nice hostel in the Old Town of Montevideo. It's great to experience the spirit of the town although it's maybe not the best neighbour hood and the place itself is very basic. Alfredo helped us with our questions and was there all time.
Nos sentimos como en casa, era muy acogedor y lo mejor la mesa de pin pon hecha en casa! El barrio de noche muy vacio y quizas hasta peligroso, miedo igual salir cuando ya no habia sol. Y la descripcion decia Bed and Breakfast, y no incluye desayuno.
