This was the most pleasant hostel I've stayed. The stuff were fabulous to help and everything, also the people that were in this place made it be one of the most amazing trip I had. I went alone to Montevideo a little afraid of how it would be since it was my first trip alone. Just magical. Great friends and also very close to the most important parts of the city. The unique issue was the noise late at night.
