a really cozy hostel with an amazing staff. It offers delicious food at a good price. punto del diablo is a beautiful place where you can relax and the hostel fits there perfectly. it has a nice fire place for the winter days. really close to the beach and the little supermarket. The hostel it self is nice and bright.

I stayed with my sister and her baby in El Diablo Tranquilo for some nights during low season and while the town was quite empty, there were still a lot of people hanging out in that beautiful hostel, which made it a fantastic choice. Also, the hostel is huge and offers large common rooms and terraces. We had a huge... More

My friend recommended this hostel and she was right to do so. The staff is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They have created a great atmosphere in a very cozy hostel which makes it easy to stay here for a very long time. The beach is only 2 minutes away and you can easily get to the national park by...

Really liked the location and the feel of this place. Yuri met us at the bus stop and gave us lots of information. When we arrived at the hostel Steve at reception helped us with EVERYTHING we could need--information, kitchen tips, music selection. He's awesome. The rest of the staff is questionable. The German girl wasn't very friendly or knowledgeable... More

When we arrived in Punta del Diablo that night it was very windy and we were freezing. So it was with great pleasure that we discovered a hostel with a big chimney and a very warm atmosphere. This is the perfect place to stay in the village, very spacious, lots of animals and a couple of hamac to have a... More

What a relief it was to arrive at a hostel that knew exactly what I needed even before I myself did. When do buses leave for Montevideo? Which beaches are best? Surfing lessons? I didn't even have to ask. Part of the hostel's success, I'd imagine, comes from the fact that those that run it are travelers themselves. As a... More

The atmospe was amazing when i went there. Came in alone, but met a fantastic group of people within 10 minutes of arriving. Steve behind the counter is very cool and knowledgeable. Staff and atmosphere definitely make this place special. Facilities are ok, kitchen is a bit cramped but civilised guests can make it work. Would gladly stay here again.

Punta Del Diablo and El Diablo Tranquilo was a ultimate high point of the two month trip I took to South America. The staff was absolutely wonderful, over the two weeks I stayed there I became like family with them. There is a great kitchen with two stoves, a neat fridge, and various useful pots and pans all alongside a... More

Absolutely loved our time here!! Such a social hostel with a great atmosphere and lovely, friendly staff! Good breakfast and kitchen to cook in and really nice food offered by the hostel for dinner! Great location - close to beach, supermarket and local restaurants. 10 percent discount at an AMAZING restaurant around the corner. Hostel can arrange tours for you... More

My experiencie was better than I thought, I felt like home in the Hostel, people working there were really kind and helpful, always with a smile and patient. Breakfast was really good and complete, and at the night the hostel organized a general dinner that helped people staying to get to know each other and socialize.
