Loved our stay at El Diablo Tranquilo. Staff are really friendly, and very helpful. The hostel is in a fantastic location, in walking distance to the beach. Our room was amazing with our own fireplace that we could light each night. Overall very happy with our stay, would highly recommend and would stay there again.
I was looking for a quiet place to relax and take in the surroundings and it was perfect! The whole vibe is very chilled out and as it's off the usual track for South American travellers, I even had the 8-bed dorm all to myself! A little cold in winter, even with the fireplace on and the rooms could have been cleaner but I really enjoyed my time there, closer to mother nature. Steve and Notchi (not sure if my spelling is correct) were great hosts. Thanks very much!
A very warm atmosphere filled with lovely people. The staff was exceptional and the location is perfect. Its a great place to stay even in the winter time if you're looking for a bit of peace and relaxation after lots of traveling.

Really nice hostel and super helpful and friendly staff. For some reason, you just get stuck there, there is always a really good atmosphere and you don't wanna leave this place. Punta del diablo is also a really nice little village, we really enjoyed how relaxed it was in off-season.
Staff were fantastic. The hostel was not the cleanest, particularly the bedrooms. Also, my mattress felt like a piece of foam
Excellent hotel ! Best place to stay in Punta del Diablo !
had a great time at this hostel. will definitely be back! staff were awesome!

Great hostel. Lost of activities to do! Great staff, food, bar. Would really recommend this hostel. Shower and toilet were not always really clean. A lot of water on the floor and toilet paper.
The hostel has an awesome atmosphere and a very friendly staff. Very recommended
We arrived on a rainy day in off season so thats why Punta del Diablo and the hostel itself were Tretty empty. Unfortunately "El Daiblo TRanquilo" has its best days behind and definetely needs to be renewed! the rooms are small and smelled mouldy. The so called internetlounge is a singel (!!) computer that does not work all the time. Same with the "book lounge" a few old books laying around and all is in dutch...Staff was friendly, but most of the time hangover and not helpful at all. Dont go!
What are you waiting for? Book this hostel. Everyone comes in for two days but stays a week instead. Great place, awesome staff. Came by self and left with a whole new group of friends.
This is a really nice hostel to stay at if you want to relax and have a good time. They provide surf classes and the horse riding tour in the nat park is definitely recommendable. Nice hammocks to relax and breakfast is one of the best I have had so far in South America!! The staff is international and really friendly.
Very nice staff and the best atmosphere. You simply get stuck over there and don't want to leave!
Best choice! The Diablo Tranquilo family is just awesome! Its a pleasure to spent lots of time there! The rooms are cosy and nice, the kitchen is outside and the location is perfect with just some hundred metres distance to the beach. Try the asado if you got some money to spent and don´t miss the horseback riding along the beach! Great great hostel!!!
... keep it up, I was very happy with my stay!
Given the high reviews we'd read of this property, we were a little disappointed. The facilities were decidedly unspectacular - the kitchen was small and dirty - so too were the bathrooms, and the dorm beds weren't great. Also the two lockers below our bed, one didn't work at all and the other was a real challenge to close! It's not a terrible place, but I think it's been reviewed highly by people into yoga etc that get to meet like minded people. That's not really for us!
I arrived for 2 nights and stayed 4. Awesome staff, close to the beach.
One of those extremely rare times when everything clicks at a hostel. I've stayed in hostels over the world, and the memories from this one are some of my favorite. Great and numerous expat/local staff that is mixing and socializing. Relatively clean, comfy beds, spacious rooms. Great happy hour at the sister hostel, serves 2 for 1 drinks and is on the beach. Get drunk there and walk back to this quiet place and get a good nights sleep. Hammocks, couches, and wonderful chilled out vibe !
Had a wonderful time at this hostel, especially due to very relaxed atmosphere and friendly people. The lockers in the female dorm couldn't be locked at all though, so it would have been nice to have a little more security there...
