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.

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

    I visited during the slow season, staff was small and the vibe was laid back but the place really stood out to me, they treated everyone so much like family half of the other guests that I met had been there a week or more just hanging around. Food was good too, don't skip the dinners.

    Best hostel that I have been too on my trip and best in Latin America during any of my visits here. If you're coming in from Buenos Aires or down from Brazil and looking for a chill spot to relax before the next big city, these guys have been here a while and know how to do it right. The town is laid back and the atmosphere at the hostel is as tranquilo as advertised.

    Staff are welcoming and friendly. They cooked both nights for a small additional cost to join. There was a storm so I lost power in my sleeping quarters but didn’t mind since I wasn’t spending most my time there

    I really liked staying here, everyone was super friendly and the common spaces are comfortable with lots of natural light! It's close to the beach. They also offered some great happy hour deals at the bar.

    I loved this hostel. The rooms were clean enough, and so were the bathroom sink areas and toilets. The trash could be emptied more int he bathrooms, and the showers are just a bit old and grimy, but the atmosphere is SO chill and lovely! A fire every night with lots of couches, a nice little deck and outdoor kitchen, hammocks, dogs, and a cat. It was the off-season and very quiet, but I loved it! Breakfast was great as well!

    Good hostel and location, I imagine it's buzzing in the summer with parties, bands and backpackers. The staff there are great and super friendly. I think if the owner wants to make this hostel a 9/10 they should renovate the bathroom facilities, they're a bit grim. I would have stayed longer but the WiFi was broken and I needed it for work.

    Probably one of the best hostels in punta del diablo. Lots of staff from all over the world have given this place a really good atmosphere. WiFi wasnt working properly but hopefully that's been fixed now, in the mean time they let you use their laptop though for onward bookings
