At long last a true hostel experience has come to Uruguay’s spectacular Rocha coast. 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. 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, an antique but still rockin’ futbolito, and the always friendly faces found at our reception desk. Above you’ll find a lofted internet lounge and beyond that the intricacies of our traditionally woven thatch roof. Additional communal areas include several terraces, a kitchen, book nook, and the picnic balcony. Now we invite you to settle in to the lodging of your choice, mixed or female dorms, private singles, doubles, 4 person share, or - for a real treat - book yourself into one of our suites and enjoy a private fireplace, full bath, ocean views, and your own balcony to doze away enveloped in a hammock. Hostel guest or not, the whole city comes together in The Bar. Located on the beach just one block from The Hostel, El Diablo Tranquilo Bar is 3 floors of beach party. Sip a cold beer, or sample mixed drinks from the world over, while you shoot some pool, listen to some tunes, or even chill out in our 200 DVD strong ‘Cinema Room’ behind the curtain and in front of the big screen. And then there’s the food: Enjoy our local favorites and fresh seafood, taste home in one of our two daily ‘Platos del Dia’ each of which a foreign special, or head up to the terrace to nibble on some pizza and parilla under the sun or stars. Above all e understand that your travel will be defined by memories, and our goal is to provide you with what you need not just to eat and sleep, but to facilitate all those hard to place things that make a place stick with you. Those things which ensure that you leave Punta del Diablo as I did the first time; feeling tranquilo, brimming with stories to tell, and friends made. Our goals always include enabling a strong interaction between guests, employees, and locals alike and we work fervently to ensure that the biggest service we offer is the chance to find your own style and fill your own days with sun, sand, a caiparina or two, and hopefully some friendship. If that’s not enough – rent a horse, a surfboard, or a fishing pole, hike out to the Forteleza of Santa Tereza, explore the Bosque de Ombues or the Laguna Negra, spend a day volunteering with marine turtles at Karumbe – just get out here and start making your own memories of El Diablo Tranquilo. Sitting on a 2000m2 lot just one block from the beach, The Hostel provides accommodation for 53 people in a diverse array of rooms in its 384m2 and 4 separate balcony areas. The Hostel boasts a multi-lingual staff with a distinctly international flavor, and takes great pride in giving our guests the best experience possible in Punta del Diablo, whether that means taking advantage of our services or fulfilling their needs by working together with other businesses. The Bar is open to the public and is designed to deliver the best facilities and most appropriate services based on the specific demands of each season. From our beachside location, all 3 levels of the Bar have a breathtaking view of Punta del Diablo, but it is not just those inside who can enjoy the benefits of our fully equipped restaurant, loaded bar, or experienced staff, our boardwalk extends all the way to the beach, where we will gladly take and serve orders from our Barcito to your table, your beach towel, or wherever you happen to be enjoying the sun –bringing you music and service to accentuate the phenomenal ambiance of Punta del Diablo.
