Great place to stay if you want to be on the water and in the only location a party happens almost every night. Debbie is very helpful and really goes the extra mile to help you if you need anything.

To say it describes itself as a party hostel, it seems strange that the bar doesn't open on a Friday or Saturday night! Overall, nice room (we got a free upgrade to a private room, which was great!) and the location looking out onto the sea is amazing and they have a great space to chill out and plenty of hammocks to do so in!

It's in the party venue of the Island. Depending on where you room is you could experience some noise, with earplugs problem was solved and had a good nights sleep! Met some great people there and could definitely stay again. Staff were helpful!

Great hostel, friendly staff, great atmosphere, awesome parties and very secure rooms (card swipe to get in). However, was a bit dirty, especially the kitchen, very few plates or bowls or utensils. Left with what I thought were mosquito bites but after three days, began to wonder if they were bedbug bites instead. Well recommended but take care, and maybe keep your bags and clothes off the beds, just in case.

Ilha Grande is AMAZING! We planned on staying 2 nights and stayed a week. The hostel options are pretty slim, I would say that Aquario is the best option. The staff isn't that friendly, confused at checkin- did't have our reservation- we had a hard time communicating. BUTTTTT it definitely was the biggest party spot on the island. The BBQ they host is amazing. Beds are comfortable, bathrooms weren't the best, great location.

Hostel itself is basic and the dorms are cramped but the location and the view out over the main beach from the hammocks make it totally worth it! Breakfast is good, atmosphere is okay but it is low season so it's naturally a bit quieter. Aquario is the only night club in the village and all the other hostels come here at midnight but at least if you stay here you can buy alcohol from the supermarket and keep it in your room as the bar is expensive and they search non-guests on the way in!

Location is perfect right on the peer, has a little bit of music playing every evening or a local band so the atmosphere is pretty good. You can bring your own alcohol as well to areas outside of the bar which is good. The kitchen is the worst kitchen I've come across so far in Latin America. It didn't bother me as was only making noodles but I know this may put of some people. Honestly though would recommend this hostel massively, everyone very friendly.

Great hostel. Reception staff were excellent. Great bbq's in the evenings. Only disappoint was the late night music. Didn't start till 12am so went on really late. Great if your wanting to stay in a party hostel. If you want somewhere quiet in the evenings do not stay here!!
