Arriba charges more than the other Pocitos hostels, despite having larger dorms, but it may be a price worth paying if you want the closest bed to the beach. Staffed by friendly owners, there is a modern but relaxed feel, with bright green walls in the common area and a small wooden bar. Bathrooms are beautiful, some with mosaic tiling, and the good kitchen even features a rare oven glove. Four- to 12-bed dorms are available; the smaller ones a bit overpriced.
