About El Diablo Tranquilo

Invitation to our guests:

At long last a true hostel experience has come to Uruguay’s spectacular Rocha coast. They opened their doors in November of 2007, 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, and listen to some tunes. 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 chill under the sun or stars.

Above all we 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.
