Really nice place but I think people from 20 to 25 years old will enjoy it more than a 30 year old person. It's near a disco but a bit far from the centre. The staff is cool. I think it´s great but for teenegers.

Hostel is relaxing, awesome friendly owners. Just bring great earplugs/eyemask if you intend to get any sleep in the big dorm as it's mostly locals holidaying from the neighbouring regions than backpackers, who either don't know or don't care about dorm etiquette. About 25 minutes walk to the main beach and 25 to a smaller quieter bay. 2 minutes to a tienda and milenesa. Really nice spot. Bring your ping pong skills!


Really nice atmosphere, great staff! Well equipped kitchen. Location: close to nightclub but 20 mins walk to the beach. What I didn`t like: Toilets. No toiletpaper is included (because it got stolen so often) - I think this problem should rather be solved by lockable dispensers, than that the guests have to buy rolls. For the rates that they ask for, I think it should definitely be included. Moreover the toilets only part the rest of the bathroom with shower curtains - no door.


The rooms were very close to the common area where they had parties (it was hard to sleep); There is no toilet paper in the bathroom; Wi-fi did not always work; Few sockets for the amount of people in the room; The bath water was not always hot.

If your are searching for rest and peace we recommend to avoid Punta del Diablo at least the first two weeks of January. The whole town transforms into a party hell and there's limited WiFi and water supply everywhere. You can buy toilet paper at the reception. Sorry for the inconvenience.
