Chilled hostel with an awesome staff. They create a friendly atmosphere and organise yoga, bus tickets, dinner etc for you. They also have really good bikes to rent and the fireplace was great for the winter evenings. Be aware that there is no ATM in town. So bring enough cash!
I spent two nights in this lovely, peaceful place just in front of the coast. The volunteers staying at the hostel are travelers themselves, therefore they create a cozy, home-like atmosphere and can give various tips about Uruguay and other countries as well. Breakfast was great and the evenings sitting and talking at the fire-place were really lovely. Thanks for everything! Hope to be back!
Nice staff, amazing atmosphere, fireplace and blankets for the cold nights, breakfast and sunrise from the balcony included - i don't know what more to ask from that place so I can just fully recommend it!
Super friendly and helpful staff, good breakfasts and dinners, close to beach

Really one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The people who run this place were so friendly, down to earth, and willing to accommodate me and help me in pretty much every way possible. Especially for English speakers (although they are of course fluent in Spanish) this place really felt like home. The staff felt less like staff than like my friends. Stay at the Diablo Tranquilo.

Best hostel we've stayed in during our 3 month trip. Best vibe with a friendly, family like atmosphere. The staff are all so nice and want to get to know you. So close to the beach and they'll sort out anything you want: from horse riding to renting surf boards - they're happy to help. The decks and hammocks are a really nice touch and the fire place is perfect for the evenings where everyone sits around and chat. 100% will come back no contest
Absolutely amazing, loved the staff and location. A came for a day, ended up staying an extra day cause I was so impressed! It's an offshoot from anything but definitely worth coming off the beaten path. The town was mostly closed down for the season but I still had a blast. The hostel was very lively, open space lots of good people. I will return one day 😊
Great hostel with nice stuff, especially Steve is a super helpful and funny guy! 2 minutes to the beach, perfect!
Amazing place. As the name says, this place is tranquillo. Met some incredible friends here and we will all miss the love that the staff showed us everyday. If you're in punta del diablo, this is where you MUST stay x
Great looking hostel from the outside, from the inside less. Kind of dirty, and smelly in the kitchen at the time. Great vibe, kind staff and very helpful! In my opinion high prices for what it offers. But had a great stay further. Thanks!
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 :)
Loved it. Great staff and atmosphere, really easy to chill and have fun. Surfing, beach volleyball, assados and empanadas. Went for a week and ended up staying for 3!
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!
we had an amazing time in diablo, the staff are really friendly and were amazing in helping us out when we were in a sticky situation regarding our next destination and accommodation. the beds and showers are good, breakfast amazing, outside lounging area is perfect and the town is just a MUST
