Live in Management for iconic Uruguayan boutique hostel

El Diablo Tranquilo, in the bohemian seaside village of Punta del Diablo Uruguay, has been creating memories as a welcoming home for guests and staff alike for ten years and is looking forward to continuing that tradition – hopefully with you included.

Our reputation as a leading boutique hostel has been built on the importance we place on the experience of staying here, whether just visiting or living here for a season or longer. We constantly strive to blur the lines between guests and staff and create meaningful relationships for guests, provide a context for management to grow personally and professionally, and offer each staff member the same through our independent projects program.

The hostel is made up of three buildings, a beachfront restaurant and hostel on one property and a larger hostel and staff housing just two blocks away. The pueblo is extremely seasonal, with up to 30,000 visitors joining the 2,500 year-round inhabitants for the very peak season. Though we do generate the vast majority of our revenue during a relatively short season, our business is one of the few that operates consistently throughout the whole year. This brings a balance to the job that I have always appreciated, with ebbs and flows that allow each season to be approached as a unique challenge and enough peace and relaxation during the winter months to offset the frenetic pace of the short summer.
