    A very nice and warm family home. I even felt like a family member. So friendly and nice. The kitchen is clean, breakfast is good (and included), pool, view tower, bike rental....

    Great place to stay. I little bit back from the town, but an easy walk to everywhere. The staff is super friendly and they have the cutest little puppies. Good breakfast, clean facilities. A nice pool, pool table, lots of common areas, and a well stocked kitchen. I stayed longer than intended!

    Very friendly place, vast garden, comfortable shared kitchen. A good deal & exquisite experience, especially at season's start (end of Nov), when it is still not crowded yet lively.

    Best Hostel ever

    We were six months into a year long trip when we found this hostel. It was definitely the best hostel we have stayed at yet. The hostel was built to be a hostel, not a converted house. The rooms and bathrooms are well planned out and the common room and kitchen are huge. There is a pool, seriously a pool, with a pool house, that has a pool table (sensing a theme?). The owners are amazing and charge reasonable prices, rather than most other hostels in the area, that over charge just because they can. Highly recommend!! Book ahead of time, this place fills up.

    3 hours bus ride and 1 hour wandering around a maze (the streets of
    Punta del Diablo seem like one), I've met some guys who also were looking for a place to stay. I've looked up a hostel beforehand, even though I haven't booked it I knew where to go and I was brave again and try and risk something.
    We were greeted so very friendly at the …

    We had a fantastic stay in Punta del Diablo, and the hostel had a large part to do with that - we had booked over the phone, and the owner (Sebastian) sounded very open and friendly - we arrived off the bus from Montevideo, and he was there waiting for us and insisted that he drive us back to the hostel! The hostel itself was one of the nicest we' …

    ... we check out this fort at the national park. It was huge. We happily paid the 20 peso entrance fee and roamed around a bit. It was occupied by the spanish, then the portuguese, the argentinians, uruguayns and brazilians at different points and had some interesting history. We were lucky enough to watch a stunning sunset from the top of it, after which we called it a ...

    ... eggs. They looked like turtle eggs anyway but we couldn't tell if they were empty or just dud ones. Then we spied a giant black bird in the sand, as we got closer we saw it was eating something. Closer again revealed it was a vulture eating a dead seal. It smelt so badly. So hurrying passed we made it to the rocks but it was too rough to see anything. With dark clouds rolling in we headed back to the hostel. Everyone else had the same idea as the hostel was ...

    ... a full skull with most of its teeth. It was eerie but really interesting. The grave of Evita (yes, Madonna played a real woman in the film) was also there.

    On the way to the cemetery we saw a dog walker (paseadorres de perros). See pic. It was pretty crazy.

    On Christmas Eve we caught the fast ferry to Uruguay. Now I don’t like to put countries down so I will list out the positives first:
