Right in the heart of Montevideo downtown, Caballo Loco Hostel is located meters away from Cagancha Square, housed in an old building from the beginning of the 20th century, completely reformed and conditioned.

Our aim is to make your stay at the Hostel another great experience in your trip, with an emphasis on cultural interchange and offering you a wide range of activities inside and outside the Hostel, such as traditional “asados” (barbecues), pool tournaments, city tours, trips to the interior of the country and many other outdoor activities.

Prices are per person per night.

We are located on the street Héctor Gutiérrez Ruiz, No. 1287 – Montevideo, in the city center, one block from the Av.18 July and less than half a block from the Plaza Cagancha, the km 0 of the city.

From the airport: You can hire a TRANSFER through the hostels reception. Another option is to take a bus at the door for the airport to Rio Branco Terminal and get off Montevideo Uruguay street corner Av Rondeau, (ie 4 blocks from the hostel) and walk to the Plaza Cagancha and cross to the other side, where the street begins Gutierrez Ruiz.

From the bus station: You can take the bus “CA1″ in the terminal gate Bvr street. Artigas, and get off at Plaza Cagancha. Cross Av July 18 and the square to reach Gutierrez Ruiz Street.
