I was greeted by an employee at the bus stop who was there to get me to the hostel safely, thank you! I met the most amazing people here, I had a blast. The beach is only a couple minutes away, I planned to stay for a day, stayed two nights instead. MUST visit.

We arrived at el Diablo towards the end of a road trip around Uruguay on a cool dark evening. The minute we walked in We were greeted by a warm homely open fire and a friendly hello from the staff and the guests. We felt at home straight away. The hostel has the most welcoming feeling.

We didn't stay in ohter places, but for us the hostel was the best option in punta del diablo. The staff is super friendly and you meet a lot of nice people there. The hostel has a lot to offer for activities, like funboard, bike rental, they can arrange back horse riding trips or help you planning your trip to... More

The rooms in the hostel are very simple but comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This hostel is a very good place to meet many people from all over the world. It also offers many activities. Highly recommended is a horse ride through the National Park of Santa Teresa. One of my friends felt at night very ill,... More

I stayed a full week in this amazing hostel. This was not planned at all but I stayed because it is an place. The staff is great and they organize a lot of activities! They all are perfect bilingual (English and Spanish) I loved my stay here and they will see my face again! Hopefully sooner than later!

The hostel itself is pretty decent, they have great and helpful staff, always keen to help out, decent facilities and a great vibe, upon arrival late at night, we (six british lads) arrived and checked into our dorm, then went into the lounge area for beers. After chatting to the guy at reception he suggested we checked into their sister... More

Hi there, Thanks for your review and good to know you enjoyed the private ocean view dorm room. We would really like to be number one of South America for you but the breakfast is subject to opinion, for South America the breakfast we offer can be categorized as normal and fits the budget. Just for anyone reading this, our... More

I stayed in the 8 beds dorm that was definitely too crowded (or too small for 8 people), I'm not sure if they change the sheets (as in many hostels I stayed in Latin America). The rooms, the bathroom and the common areas were dirty and full of spiders, also, I don't think that two showers and two toilets are... More

Hi Silvia, we are not exactly sure why you left a review here because you were staying in our other hostel El Diablo Tranquilo Hostel, where strangely enough you also left a review. We have left a more extensive reply there for you. Best regards from everybody here. More

When we arrived in Punta del Diablo we've mainly been on the road for 3 days straight. We were soo looking forward to spend some days on the beach. The Diablo tranquilo was recommended to us by different people so there was no question where to stay. When we arrived we moved in in our clean and nice 8 bed... More

The view and location is stunning!!! My 6 bed dorm looked straight onto the ocean. I woke up to the view of the beach! Wow!! The staff were super friendly and helpful! !
