Property Description

Come partake in a true boutique hostel experience on Uruguay's spectacular Rocha coast. For more than 10 years, El Diablo Tranquilo provides a wide variety of accommodations, services, adventures, and memories to travelers of all styles.

Whatever your preferred method of travel, The Hostel is sure to offer what you're looking for. Even before choosing your lodging find yourself at home in our spacious lobby, surrounded by 16 foot high windows looking seaward, a massive hearth and fireplace in front of cozy sofas, and the always friendly faces found at our reception desk. Above you'll find the breakfast area and shared kitchen, and beyond that the intricacies of our traditionally woven thatch roof. Additional communal areas include a beautiful balcony, book nook, and the picnic tables and hammocks outside in the front yard. You can choose between mixed or female dorms, private singles, doubles, triple, or - for a real treat - book yourself into one of our suites and enjoy a private fireplace, full bath, ocean views, and a lovely balcony to doze away while contemplating the waves.

The quiet nature of El Diablo Tranquilo lets you enjoy the beach party only when you feel like rocking out with fellow travelers, but always provides the perfect escape to relax in total tranquility. Enjoy the best of both worlds by staying in this more relaxed, laid-back hostel but still be considered a VIP with exclusive access to our beachfront bar located beneath our sister hostel El Diablo Tranquilo Playa Suites, just two blocks away. Sip a cold beer, or sample mixed drinks from the world over, while listening to music or enjoying the stars from the deck of our bar.

Those things which ensure that you leave Punta del Diablo as we did the first time; at peace and brimming with stories to tell and friends made.

If that's not enough - how about galloping along the beach at sunset on our horse tour? Or hiring bicycles and heading off to see the Laguna Negra (Black Lagoon) or the Santa Teresa National Park? You might want to quench your curiosity and take your first steps into the world of surfing with our qualified surf teacher, or simply hire surf equipment and go for it by yourself; perhaps enjoy a car tour along the Park and the Lagoon? As you can see, there's plenty to see and do! - just get out here and experience El Diablo Tranquilo!' View House Rules

    Stayed 4 nights. Not much to do in Punta del Diablo besides the beaches around, so it was super nice staying in a hostel with amazing people. It has a really relaxing vibe and everyone Spanish speakers as English speakers enjoyed the time together in the hostel! Would recommend. The building isn’t suited for heavy rain so mind where your backpack is if a storm comes up

    This is an amazing hostel which is perfectly located, not only is it near the beach but also the city centre. The staff is friendly and speaks a wide variety of languages. The atmosphere was fantastic so it’s easy to meet new people. The only constructive criticism would be to redesign the kitchen so as to make it bigger because it does get crowded from time to time. Other than that, this hostel is wonderful!

    This hostel perfectly fits into the tranquil relaxed vibes of Punta del Diablo. The house is full of character and the staff are all really friendly. We found it more expensive than other hostels in Uruguay but this is unsurprising considering it’s location. They’ve got all the basics down with cool areas to relax, comfy clean rooms, warm showers and big under the bed lockers. Would highly recommend!

    Nice location near the beach, and a very chilled hostel with a good atmosphere. Free breakfast is pretty decent. Also they have live music and film nights too. The kitchen is a bit small and so is the 10 man dorm, could be a bit cleaner in there. Overall a good chilled place to stay

    The hostel was a great deal less lively than I expected. I read there were regular beach parties but when I was there , there were none. The staff were lovely but the hostel was a far away from the bars and restaurNts of the town so I got one hell of a lot of exercise

    Kind of an average hostel in my opinion. It seemed easy to socialize with people but I mostly kept to myself. Private suite was nice, it had its own bathroom with a good shower and patio access. Walking distance to the beach. I enjoyed my stay. The people at the front desk were helpful.
