The Hostel de la Viuda this situated in Punta del Diablo, 7’ minutes walk from the beach that gave origin to his name (Viuda beach), one of the most beautiful of the town. And surrounded of a mixed forest.
A place where the nature surrounds the hostel and where you could see diversity of birds and animals. Also in the Viuda beach you could see sea lions. And in the months of low season whales and penguins that make a stop in their trip to the south of the continent.

Warning: In Punta del Diablo the ATM (Cash machine) only works in January and February!

Prices are per person per night.
