Did not stay anywhere else actually, but after staying there, i woudn't want to try anyway. The staff is super friendly and flexible, they were really helpful with everything during our stay. The atmosphere they create at the fireplace every night is amazing (we were there in winter time). The kitchen is fully equipped and the other commodities are great...

16$ for a shoebox of a room with 8 people. Bathrooms were disgusting, no lights in one shower - the other with lights you couldn't close. Most of the staff was too stoned to care and rather concerned about having their own party than doing their work. The kitchen was disgusting it's not appealing to have breakfast there, which is...

I'd spend only one night but the place made me change the plan. Punta del Diablo is a very beautiful and relaxing beach and in the El Diablo Tranquilo you can have also a nice atmosphere among the residents and the helpful staff. I'd definitely go back and I'm already indicating to my friends.

We had a great stay here during September. Close to the beach and with super friendly staff, the private rooms are great value (off season) with an excellent view of the ocean and a fireplace! Just be aware that COT buses do not stop in town and it is approximately 30-40 minutes walk to the hostel.

We stayed for two weeks at El Diablo Tranquilo Hostel in October 2016. It’s a friendly place; the staff all very helpful and there’s a good atmosphere among the residents. While Punta del Diablo itself feels quite remote and rural, the hostel is located within easy striking distance of both the beaches and the centre of town. The building has...

We stayed here during Christmas. The room was nice, however I assumed when booking that we had a private balcony. That was not the case and I was very surprised to see people standing right outside our room. It didn't help that our curtains were see-through too. Additionally, our room wasn't cleaned once during our stay, despite handing our key...

There are dozens of places to stay in this area. El Diablo has suites near the beach (we stayed there) and dorms etc up the hill. The staff is friendly and responsive. The area is pretty quiet in winter (glad El D was open!), but that's a plus too :)
