Definitely one of my best experiences in all my trip for south america!!! If you wanna be in a nice hostal, with amazing staff and owners and amazing place, you have to choise Hostal de la Viuda. I can not wait to return one day.




Seba and guada have a wonderful place, they will help you with everything they can, the city is very calm and beautiful it's a good place to relax and learn




Minha experiência na Posada de la Viuda foi ótima! Guada e Sebabastian são muito atenciosos e nis ajudaram com tudo que necessitamos. A posada é muito bonita e organizada, com a cozinha mais equipada que já vi :)
Muchas gracias por todo!




En este paraiso tuve mi primera experiencia trabajando de voluntario y fue increible. Lo demuestra perfectamente el hecho de que en un principio iba para un par de semanas y terminé quedandome 7! Los dueños del hostal son personas super amables y divertidas y hacen todo lo posible para que te sientas como en casa. Personalmente trabajé mucho con Sebas, del que aprendí muchas cosas y con el que pasé buenos momentos. !El hostel es increible¡ Tiene todo lo que se puede pedir. Si volviera a Uruguay estoy seguro de que volveria!




Mi experiencia aqui fue genial. Conocí personas maravillosas, amigos de todas partes del mundo. Es un hostel lindo , el lugar perfecto para relajarse, hacer amigos, pasarla bien y aprender nuevas cosas. Sebas y Guada, gracias por haberme dado la oportunidad de ser parte de su equipo y gracias por contribuir positivamente en mi viaje. Hasta pronto!
