El Diablo Tranquilo doesn't offer much that's out of the ordinary for a good hostel as far as facilities go. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen has just the basics, and the same goes for the bathrooms. What sets the Tranquilo apart from other hostels I've been to are its great staff and killer location. The staff are always polite... More

A fellow traveler said it best, "this place is sticky". Meaning you will get to this quaint little town on the Uruguayan coast and not want to leave. We arrived in winter (June 2014) and it was mostly empty but warm enough for a T-shirt and shorts. The staff will welcome you in like a family member and you will... More

I really had a great time at El Diablo Tranquilo. I felt like I was home, although it's 5000km from Punta del Diablo. Diablo Tranquilo's staff were always ready to help at anything we need, and you'll feel home too! I really recommend anyone to stay there!

I really want to recommend this lovely place to everyone! 1. The location is perfect for reaching everything in the town and around, first of all - of course - the beach. 2. The building itself just invites you to feel comfortable by being of a generous size and comfortable at the same time. It is obvious that artists are... More

Overall, I was happy with my stay. The staff was generally helpful enough, almost all young, non-local surfers or partiers working the place for a month or three. Bathrooms and the place in general were kept reasonably clean, and the beach location can't be beat. The bar downstairs often goes late, but the sound doesn't necessarily penetrate harshly to the...

yes, the property is right at the beach with a great view but everything else is just awful: structure falling apart, windows won't open, garbage surrounding the house, sketchy hot water, weak wireless, terrible breakfast, restaurant permanently closed, room furniture falling apart, no lights near bed, 10% surcharge on credit cards. bottom line: owner is letting the property fall apart,...
