So most daytime and nighttime activities will be just a short stroll away!

We had a great time in Montevideo , the staff was súper friend lu and helpful and the hostel as shown in the pictures , well located and equipped. We recommend it to anyone visiting the capital of Uruguay
What a surprise. We came for only one night on our way to cabo polonio and felt very welcome by the staff and felt in love with this beautifull old colonial house. A place to feel comfortable and to stay definitly longer.
Todo muy bien. El espacio limpio, el edificio bellísimo, las habitaciones amplias y la hospitalidad muy agradable. En todo momento estuvieron a disposición para lo que necesitara. La vista desde la terraza es increíble hacia el puerto y en general el ambiente de los demás huéspedes es agradable. Aunque sólo pasé una noche estuvo genial. La ubicación es en la conocida Ciudad Vieja y está muy cerca de las plazas centrales, aunque al rededor del hotel no sienta del todo seguro se puede caminar sin ningún problema pero con precaución. En general creo que esa medida aplica en varias partes de Montevideo. En conclusión, recomiendo este lugar!
Very nice place, great vibe....location a bit dodgy by night
Nuestra estadía fue excelente, y nuestros anfitriones, maravillosos. El lugar es altamente recomendable: hermosa arquitectura de estilo, ordenado, limpio y confortable. Lo recomendamos especialmente. Volveremos!!!!
Estuvó muy linda nuestra estancia, pero muy corta al mismo tiempo, solo nos quedamos una noche. Pudimos aprovechar de la bienvenida que nos dieron a nuestra llegada, así que del desayuno, solo nos quedamos una noche pero nos gustó mucho el lugar.
No sabiamos que era un Hostel, escogiendo via Airbnb, pensábamos llegar a una casa particular, pero no quita nada de lo que hicieron para renovar de forma increíble este edificio!
Suerte y gracias!
Cesar was very kind and friendly and his hostel is very nice. Good bathrooms and kitchen. The hostel has an incredible view in the balcony. Nice place!
Cesar is a great host really helped us with everything!
The house works like a hostel, has a amazing view of the port and it has a good location if you wanna stay around the Old City, Ciudad Vieja!
We stayed there for a night, Cesar was a wonderful host, the house and room are very nice. It was just very hot that day and thus difficult to sleep.
The house is really beautiful! Cesar and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful!
At first, we were staying in a bedroom without any window, but during summertime it can really warm! (even though we had a fan!) Once I asked Cesar if we could move to another one with more fresh air, he managed to do so, and we really appreciated that. Besides that, it's a nice place to stay if you wanna hang out with other people and socialize!
The location is not the safest in the city, but it's an interest place to stay with nice and old architecture. It's very easy to get around by bus in Montevideo, but during the night time, I'd recommend taking a taxi to go back to the house!
