El Viajero Brava Beach Hostel & Suites Punta del Este Reviews

El Viajero Jun 05, 2016
El Viajero Hostel in Punta del Este is a part of the hostel chain, and I was constantly trying to avoid that chain while traveling through Argentina and Uruguay. Reason is that I wanted to stay in more independent places, places with soul and unique style. This time around I have chosen the place that was simply the closest hostel to the bus station. I am not saying that chain is a bad thing, and being the part of the chain brings some nice things such as standardized quality of beds, rules, and another example is a breakfast which was pretty good in this place. Generally speaking all hostels in Argentina or Uruguay have breakfast in the offer, and it is mostly few kinds of juices, bread with different spreads such as jam and dulce de leche, cereals, and some kind of fruits. El Viajero expended the offer with some yogurt and very nice kitchen where you could prepare anything you like (for example heat up your pizza).

Hostel is right on the street, but noise from the buses and cars is not a factor. We were in Punta during the off season and there was no much people around, but hostel has open bar area that is surely full during the summer months. Interior design of the reception area is very cool and creative. There is a kitchen that everyone can use and few refrigerators that are also for all (write your name on your stuff if you want to eat them later…). Rooms are on the second floor and there are only one stairs leading up there. Watch your head because clearance on those stairs is not that great. We got matrimonial room with private bathroom for around $30 which is regular price for it. It was a spacious room, bed too, and there is also lots of space in the wall storage area (must be for renters that come there during the summer). Restroom was another sorry altogether. They have one of the worst layouts for the bathroom, so that if you want to get to the toilet seat, you need to practice gymnastics.

Security is pretty good and cameras are everywhere. They did not seem to be bothered with main door that could open only half way until getting stuck, which is uncomfortable for me to get in with my backpack… Aside of that place is run well, and it cleanliness is on high level.

El Viajero is three blocks from bust station and same distance from the “famous” sculpture of the hand coming out of the sand. After the bus station you can find bunch of restaurants and small shops. Half block away from hostel is a supermarket and block away you can get decent pizza. It is also right in between two beaches so you can easily go to the place you like. Staff is welcoming, speaks English and they will gladly help you with your questions. There is a “bag room” where you can leave your stuff after check out if your bus is departing later on.

If you are coming with intercity bus, they can stop on the station next to hostel...
