      Wow! Glad you enjoyed our list of best hostels in Uruguay! 🙂 🙂 Thank you Cai! 🙂 El diablo is definitely a great choice.

  4. Nice roster. I loved every single bit of Uruguay. There’s soooo much to do there for any type of traveler! You can see the remnants of Spanish colonisation in Montevideo. Enjoy the roster of extreme adventures to choose from outside the cities all across the country. Take in the culture of the city by walking around the small towns and spending time shopping or eating in the markets.
    I always look forward to the kind of vibe and personality a hostel gives off and the type of people they attract. Hostels are an awesome way to get to know an interesting set of people. You all ended up in the same place so you all probably have a thing or two in common. Meeting fellow travellers remind you that the thirst for exploration and adventure is something that you share with every person from any socio cultural and religious background.
    I’ve learned a lot of practical information and new perspectives from all my hostel experiences. I will eternally be grateful for the hospitality quality hostels offer.
    More power to your travels, Clang!
