This hostel has 2 buildings. One right at the beach and one 2 streets away. I had a great stay! The vibe here is amazing, everybody talks with each other, in the evening everyone sits together. It's not exactly the cleanest place, but I gave them some credit since its pretty hard to keep clean a beach place.

The athmosphere in the hostel was really nice, even tho the rooms were really small and a bit dirty, the wifi never worked and the kitchen was really really small. Even tho I recommend this place just to chill.

I had a wonderful time during my week in Punta del Diablo and this was in large part due to El Diablo Tranquilo. The staff were very friendly and super helpful. The asado and chivitos they made for dinner two nights were delicious! The hostel is right on the beach and I couldn't have hoped for me.

As a hostel it has a good vibe. I did not manage to have any WiFi connection during my stay. The bed sheets in the private room were too small to comfortably cover the mattress and became unstuck. Paying a 10 % surcharge for card payments was unpleasant too. The staff is pleasant but tends to shrug off problems

I've spent 12 nights in the Playa Suites. The first thing that caught my attention was the great view it has. Having breakfast just meters away from the beach is something you'll miss back home. The thing that made a difference to me, was the staff. They went beyond expectations to make you feel like home. Really nice and memorable...

I've been a lot of places in the world and Uruguay has always held a special place in my heart. But seriously...Diablo Tranquilo was an amazing experience. The staff went above and beyond expectations that make my stay memorable. Not only helpful and courteous but fun too! They also do special events for the guests and I never felt bored...
