Excellent 'tranquilo' place. Lovely vibe, very helpful. The girl from Guatemala makes that place even better than it already is though, she's an absolute diamond. We really enjoyed our short but sweet stay here :)
Great hostel, wonderful staff that basically were friends by the end of the 3 night stay. Great atmosphere among travellers. Would recommend to anyone.

This hostel is my all time favorite: nice staff, super atmosphere and the hostel offers you a ton of extra stuff to do! Rooms and bathrooms are clean and there are lockers, plus the hostel is at a less than 5 minute distance from the beach and a supermarket. After staying here for a couple of days it feels like you've made a new family! All but love!
Cool place, well run & great location
awesome place to stay. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Helped me plan where to stay in next town and how to get there. Clean accommodations. Inviting, relaxed and cool vibe. I would definitely recommend El Diablo Tranquilo to friends and look forward to staying there again. Thanks for an awesome stay and experience.
Pretty awesome place to stay - not much room in the dorms but the ambiance and staff totally make up for it, one of the most unique hostels i've been on the staff side! They are very loving people, mostly expats - they live behind the hostel and chill a lot with the backpackers and travellers, we had soccer games at the beach and they easily start great parties, asados, etc. with the guests! You won't be deceived if you choose this place!
Very nice hostle, great atmosphere , staff is amazing
One of the best hostels I ever stayed in

Recepcionists (brazilian girl and blonde guy) were unkind with the guests!
Really good hostel in a great town. Staff super friendly and a party atmosphere. I booked a private room with my partner and unfortunately got leveled with bunk beds which wasn't ideal, but I guess I didn't read the fine print. The doors upstairs need new locks, too. Other than that, a chilled, clean hostel in a must visit part of the awesome Uruguayan coast.
such a cool hostel and place. both hostels combine and its a really social chilled atmosphere. so many people came for 2 days but stayed 2 weeks. staff become like your family. make sure you do the horse riding like a gaucho! its on the beach and through a national park. one of my favourite place's!
At first you will notice the surfer crowd, but there are other types of travellers as well. Staff is friendly and useful. Good breakfast. Lockers under the beds. Kitchen rather well-equiped.
Super-friendly and helpful staff, fun communal atmosphere, great value and a gorgeous location! One of the best hostels I've stayed in on my trip!
