As a hostel it has a good vibe. I did not manage to have any WiFi connection during my stay. The bed sheets in the private room were too small to comfortably cover the mattress and became unstuck. Paying a 10 % surcharge for card payments was unpleasant too. The staff is pleasant but tends to shrug off problems

I've spent 12 nights in the Playa Suites. The first thing that caught my attention was the great view it has. Having breakfast just meters away from the beach is something you'll miss back home. The thing that made a difference to me, was the staff. They went beyond expectations to make you feel like home. Really nice and memorable...

I've been a lot of places in the world and Uruguay has always held a special place in my heart. But seriously...Diablo Tranquilo was an amazing experience. The staff went above and beyond expectations that make my stay memorable. Not only helpful and courteous but fun too! They also do special events for the guests and I never felt bored...

The place is amazing and the people are totally kind and nice. I just loved to know this place and I'll come back to stay there with no doubt when I'd be passing by Punta del Diablo again. Thanks for all you guys who helped me a lot to fit in this amazing place.

Did not stay anywhere else actually, but after staying there, i woudn't want to try anyway. The staff is super friendly and flexible, they were really helpful with everything during our stay. The atmosphere they create at the fireplace every night is amazing (we were there in winter time). The kitchen is fully equipped and the other commodities are great...

I'd spend only one night but the place made me change the plan. Punta del Diablo is a very beautiful and relaxing beach and in the El Diablo Tranquilo you can have also a nice atmosphere among the residents and the helpful staff. I'd definitely go back and I'm already indicating to my friends.

We had a great stay here during September. Close to the beach and with super friendly staff, the private rooms are great value (off season) with an excellent view of the ocean and a fireplace! Just be aware that COT buses do not stop in town and it is approximately 30-40 minutes walk to the hostel.

We stayed for two weeks at El Diablo Tranquilo Hostel in October 2016. It’s a friendly place; the staff all very helpful and there’s a good atmosphere among the residents. While Punta del Diablo itself feels quite remote and rural, the hostel is located within easy striking distance of both the beaches and the centre of town. The building has...
