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.

Located Near

Located at Km0 in Montevideo, just a few steps away from 18 de Julio Ave, we are meters away from the direct bus lines to the main bus terminal, near the port terminal and with a quick connection to Carrasco International Airport via Rambla (riverside).

Additionally, it is very convenient and quick to walk from Caballo Loco Hostel to any point in downtown, to the Old City, to Pocitos, Punta Carretas and Parque Rodó neighbourhoods, and even to Rambla Sur, which is only 6 blocks from the Hostel.
