Lonely Planet review
Founded by three Uruguayan friends, this small hostel has plenty of onda (good vibes), with its cozy lounge, on-site bar selling local microbrews, and rooftop terrace sporting six homegrown cannabis plants (Uruguay's new legal maximum). It's on a residential street within a five-minute walk of the bus station and beaches. Avoid the lone private room, which is windowless and claustrophobic.
Our independent authors have visited The Trip Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Punta del Este.
Description provided by property
The Trip Hostel opens its doors to travellers from all over the world. We are situated in the heart of Punta del Este, close to everything you need to have an amazing stay. The hostel is conveniently located just two blocks from the bus station, two blocks from the main street, Gorlero, and two blocks from the most popular beaches in the area: Playa Mansa and Playa Brava. There is a 24-hr market located on the corner and a supermarket just 1 ½ blocks away.
The Trip Hostel has the perfect combination of good vibes and comfort. It’s owned and operated by three young Punta del Este locals that go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, BBQ areas, a rooftop terrace, and a common area with cable TV and a DVD player that you can use. You are also welcome to BYOB into the hostel to enjoy in our bar.
Our exclusive bar has nightly drink specials, summertime Happy Hour drinks, and the best atmosphere to party before enjoying a night out at the local clubs. We offer a unique handcrafted beer sold only in our bar. For your entertainment, we have instruments you can play, and if you are lucky you’ll catch a live reggae-ska concert!
