The staff at Montevideo Chic Hostel gave us a warm and friendly welcome, even though we arrived in the middle of the night, all sweaty and jet-lagged. The location is great, walking distance from all attractions in Old Montevideo and it has an awesome rooftop patio (with an amazing view!). No breakfast that we could see, and we didn't like...

We have stayed in many different hostels throughout South America and Montevideo Chic Hostel has by far the most helpful, friendliest and welcoming staff. This does not feel like a hostel, but more like staying with friends in a lovely, large clean house. Highly recommend.

This hostel is always clean, has a relaxing environment, and is sufficiently equipped with everything one needs (laundry station, kitchen + refrigerators, wifi, community terrace w/ view, etc) to have a comfortable stay in Montevideo. The management is super friendly and always helpful. Perfectly located in the Old City as well. This place is a true gem.

The best features of Montevideo Chic are: location near museums and beautiful plazas, the rooftop terrace, the 25 foot ceiling in the common area with skylights above, and the 20 foot ceilings in most of the rooms. The features of the rooms vary just as the cost. On the weekends, you can partake of the Asado (beef and vegetables grilled... More

We really enjoyed our stay and we would definitely recommend this hostel to other travelers! This is a great place to meet and socialise with other people and as a result, we extended our stay from 2 nights to 5 nights. Many of the guests are staying there long term, so it is a really close knit bunch of people... More
