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!
My visit here was in the slow season. My feeling is that backpackers travel here in the offsets on just to stay at this hostel. The staff and owners are as good as it gets.
EDT was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Great atmosphere, activities (we did the horse riding tours and took a surf class) were fun and we had a blast with the staff. They even have a building right down on the beach, Playa Suites, with a bar downstairs we spent a lot of time in which we could go hang out in
Great staff, very good food and always people around at night to have drink and a chat.
Really a GOOD hostel! Cozy fireplace area with books and couches, the rooms are good and I got lucky that we were 2 in the 6 people dorm. The staff is great and helpful. They offer a horse tour that is a MUST take if you like to ride. It's beautiful, you really can go running with your horse and it's for 3 hours (worth every cent of the US$45)! The hostel also offers dinner for US$10 and it's good food even though it's late (9-10pm).
El Diablo Tranquilo is excellent, not for the facilities (which are adequate for whatever you'll need), but for the location and staff. It's maybe 200 yards from a great beach, down the street from a mercado, and in a part of town that's easy to find. The staff is great too, all of them were very friendly and knowledgeable about the beach, and were more than willing to help. If I head back to Punta del Diablo in the near future, I'll definitely stay here again.

When I walked into the hostel, i realized the adjective "tranquilo" most definitely described it. We entered after a long day of traveling and found ourselves amongst 4 girls reading books around a fireplace. Just what we needed! It seems it is much more lively in the summertime, and actually full of people (maybe the opposite of what I experience) but we came early in the spring season so it was much different. Lovely staff, beautiful location, awesome building. Amazing time @ diablo tranquilo!
