We decided to book one day in Diablo at $35USD/bed at this hostel. After seeing the facilities, we decided one day was enough time because there are many more beautiful beaches along the Uruguay coast at cheaper prices and much better accommodations. We stayed in the 5 bed dorm, which was in a different building. It seems they build the bunk bed frames out of basic wood. The sleeping was uncomfortable because there are no separations on the top bunks. Meaning you can/will get kicked by another backpacker and/or your heads may touch if you move around too much. On their computers, gmail only worked on one. Lastly, one of the guy's urinals was broken and the outside bathroom was not ideal. If the price was $15USD, I could have lived with all these issues. The good parts: they have hot water and they offer bread, fruit and a really wonderful juice for breakfast. Overall: Not worth the price
