Property Information:

The Hostel de la Viuda this situated in Punta del Diablo, 7 minutes walk from the beach that gave origin to his name (Viuda beach), one of the most beautiful of the town. And surrounded of a mixed forest.
A place where the nature surrounds the hostel and where you could see diversity of birds and animals. Also in the Viuda beach you could see sea lions. And in the months of low season whales and pinguins that make a stop in their trip to the south of the continent.

If you like the beach but also to do other activities, the Hostel de la Viuda offers you some, like tours by the national park Santa Teresa, the fort inside the park, the Black lake (with his great sunset), the fortn of Saint Miguel, the forest of Ombues, Cabo Polonio and Valizas. And also you could rid horses throu the beach to the nacional park.

All the bedrooms have big lockers and mirrors with a good size. The bathrooms are shared but at the same time are individual, this it is because when you go in to the bathroom, you are alone and when sgo out any another guest of the hostel can use it.

    Decent overall. Good breakfast: better than the average bread and jam, plus yogurts and cereal. Helpful staff. My only complaint is the space in the cabin, which was a 10-person but really should only be 6, so all the bags were very much in everyone's way. But if you're in Punta del Diablo, you shouldn't spend much time in your hostel room anyhow, so it was worth it to me.
