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

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! ! Always willing to help and suggest ideas. The mattress like other Uruguay hostels offer sponge mattress so not a very comfortable sleep. The bathrooms are a bit... More

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to leave such extensive review. For the ones reading this and having questions we like to clarify a few points. Our breakfast is what's common here, plus a bit more: Freshly baked bread, jams, dulce de leche, tea, coffee, milk, orange juice and unlimited fruit. As for the wifi, unfortunately we've had some...

I've been there for the new year's eve of 2015. It's a very fun place at an amazing location and view. But considering it is the most expensive hostel in punta del diablo I was expecting a better structure. If you wanna use the kitchen you need to go to their second hostel which is 10 min walking. Also the... More

Can't beat the spitting distance to the beach. However, there are a few quirks with the property, primary that the kitchen and any usae refrigerator space are located 2.5 blocks away at the sister hostel. Gives an extra opportunity to meet those folks, though. Would stay again.

Hi Eric, We are happy to hear you liked your stay at our hostel. Since it's a real beach hostel, only open in summer and surrounded by many places where you can eat we do not have a kitchen in this building. The only thing we would like to clarify though is that there is a fridge, kettle and coffee... More

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
