I can't say enough good things about this hostel... First, it's in a great location - not only are you steps away from the sand, but you can also see the beach from most rooms and hear the waves when you sleep at night. The rooms/bathrooms and common areas are kept very clean. The actual hostel is bright and airy,... More

This was very nice, clean place. Staff was very helpful and friendly and the location is ideal, right by the beach. The room had an air conditioner and a very well-equipped kitchen. We had to rent an entire room, which would have been much cheaper with enough people to fill the beds. My only complaint was that the wifi didn't... More

We stayed in Punta del Diablo during low season, so the town and the hostel were pretty much empty. However, Casa de las Boyas is a good choice for anyone visiting; we'd imagine when the sun is shining it'd be a really fun place. There's a small outdoor pool with a deck-bar area in the centre of the hostel complex.... More

I´m not very good with words but i can say just nice things about this place. The location and the sight was awesome, and the owner is a really nice guy. Breakfasts were good, nothing out of the ordinary. But besides the location, the best thing was the mood, everyone, guests, owner, staff included were in a great mood all... More

1 star rating because of the staff... First, the location is really great, nothing to say about it. But obviously we visited when the owners were on vacation and we definitely could feel it. The 2 lazy women working there weren't very friendly, spent time tanning and kept asking everyday when we'd leave. Needless to say they didn't clean much.... More

Loved our 6 nights at Casa de las Boyas! We are traveling through Uruguay during the off season so we had almost the whole place to ourselves! Unfortunately, breakfast is not included during the off-season, but our room had a little kitchenette so it was fine. Perfect location a block from the beach and close to 2 supermarkets. Rented bikes... More

We were 1 night at a room for a couple. The room was not so clean also the floor was wet.. No Wifi at the room, very poor breakfast and the hostel was very noisy during night. The price was expensive . I do not recommend this hostel if you want to sleep at night.

Punta del Diablo in general was a great place to stay, wish I had stayed much longer. Area is great and bustling with other travellers. This hostel had a great atmosphere, it was busy with different areas to hang and chill out. So many different levels to the hostel and I had to keep trying to work out what was... More
