Even if it was not as expensive as the other properties around, this hostel has the most romantic-ocean view-cheap place that we could find. The beach is literally in front of the hostel, the staff was very agreeable and the food was also ok.

Loved this hostel. Was supposed to only stay two nights and ended up staying 6, which seemed to be the story with many other guests there. It has a super relaxing vibe, is close to the beach, has a fireplace, comfortable sofas, games, hammocks, books, musical instruments, free breakfast, cheap dinners and organises fun-themed parties frequently. The staff are very... More

I find El Diablo Tranquilo a "home away from home", a 100 % festive and vibrant kind of hostel and a place where things are clearly done with good vibes and passion. I have been many times here and always see that it improves in a way, it is always growing up to offer a better service. From the building... More

This hostel was a fun, busy place when the rest of Punto del Diablo was very very quiet in October. The positives are : friendly staff, great fireplace, nice location right near the beach. They also make communal dinners. However the hostel could do with a real clean. The kitchen especially was not great. When I was saying, two of... More

I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. When I came in the bed was already made and the check in process was really easy. There is plenty of space between the upstairs and downstairs and there is a great kitchen upstairs. Staff was really friendly and helpful and there were delicious group meals served for $6 both nights that I... More

I cannot say how magical and harmoniously in-tune with peace, happiness and fun this hostel was, for me at least. The staff's happiness was infectious to the customers mindset, you couldn't help but be happy. I loved all the staff and special thanks to Youri, the manager, Ana, Agustina and my meditation mentor Valeria. There were so many reasons why... More

I stayed here from Nov 23-24, 2015. They have great bikes for rent that can take on the local terrain! Overall the staff are great people that try to help answer any questions you may have.

Diablo Tranquilo makes a random group of travelers seem like a family. Wonderful atmosphere and staff. Super caring and concerned about making the hostel a great place to stay. Great place to make friends.
