Ejidonia Hostel Montevideo
Ejidonia Hostel is located on a beautiful old house from the early 1900, redesigned to enhance the fantastic component of your travel experience.
Located at walking distance from both the City Hall and the seaside esplanade, you can easily get here by taking any bus that goes downtown, which are the vast majority.
Birthplace of the "candombe", a contagious Uruguayan rhythm, the colorful neighborhood features the heart of carnival, as well as all kinds of pubs, bars, grow shops, markets, restaurants and other services.
If you prefer to stay in for the night, we've got you covered: you may sign up for a traditional "asado" at our barbecue, watch a live music show, attend to a party at the very hostel, or just lay back and enjoy vynil listening sessions by our in-house bar.
You may choose to spend the night in one of the three shared bedrooms or a private one for couples, all of which have access to a fully equipped kitchen, the multimedia room (featuring videogames, netflix and pc), a comfortable sea view terrace, included breakfast and a high-speed internet connection.
Keep in mind we also offer bike rental, night club tickets, various tours (both typical and non-cliché) and much more so you can experience this gorgeous city at its best.
We love music, art, meeting people and having fun. We like our style to have a bohemian feel while making sure everything is neat and tidy. We speak English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German, so get in touch with us and we'll help you get the most out of your trip.

If you're arriving at the airport, we recommend to use our pick-up service: we'll be waiting at the ariport to bring you directly to the hostel, giving you our hospitality from the moment you get off the plane.
Another option is to take an interdepartamental bus (Cot company), which have air conditioning, comfortable seats and plenty room for your luggage. The price of these buses is about 3 dollars and they will take you to the Tres Cruces bus terminal.
We don't recommend taking a taxi from the airport simply because it's not very affordable, but it is also an option. Uber is cheaper.
To get to the hostel from the bus station you have to take the bus number 300 (the yellow one) or 407 at the main entrance (Bvar Artigas street): when you reach Ejido you'll be a block away! Any other bus that goes to Ciudad Vieja or Plaza Independencia also works, just get off the bus on the street Ejido, then walk towards the river a a few blocks.
The neighbourhood is known as the birthplace of Candombe, a contagious uruguayan rythm and iconic cultural expression. Guests may enjoy unique dancing and percussion sessions through the very window of the hostel. It's also a key spot of the uruguayan carnival, celebrated every february. Featuring a priviledged location, quiet and colorful yet central, Ejidonia stands at walking distance from both downtown and the 'rambla' while surrounded by bars, night clubs, markets and other services.
