Very nice stay!


Nice little place, a bit of a walk into the main historic centre, but not a massive issue. Amazing breakfasts!


Wifi is bad, breakfast is great! Hostel is a bit out of town compared to some others, but this means its 100m out of town, next to bus stop and a cool caparinha pub! The hostel is very homey feel and people hang out there a lot.

sorry about wifi, it was the server connection that was poor and inconstant. Now we pass to 10mb connection (new in Paraty) and is much better (of course the server lies and we really have 6 or 7mb but is good anyway) Thank for your stay!!


Pablo is a wonderful man and went out of his way to accommodate us. You feel like you're in a big family home. We were lovely and cool at night and there was plenty of space to relax in the house and garden. Excellent breakfast and we had a brilliant bbq. Seconds from supermarket and 5-10 minute walk to the old town. Thank you Pablo!


We loved our stay at Backpackers House Paraty, we felt welcomed as soon as we arrived, the hostel had a great atmosphere and the breakfast was very good.


It's like staying in a friends house, feels just like home! Lots of hammocks, a pool, great breakfast, very secure, right beside everything and the nicest staff you'll meet! Book in advance because it's a busy spot!


Awesome hostel that was very much like being at home. Adrian is the best and very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend staying here.


Really chill place in Paraty! Best breakfast I ever had!! Pablo also makes an excellent BBQ for a good price, recommend you to try it!


Great breakfast. Owner is amazing


Good atmosphere but very very small amd too few bathrooms for the number of people. If you don't mind being stacked into 3-layer bunkbeds x3 per room with minimal fan/air con then it's value for money. Right next to the supermarket!

Daniel, there is 8 beds for room, not 9. In both rooms there is ventilator and aircon and great lockers that allows to have the surface free. There is also 2 bathrooms (the one in your room is ensuite), and 1 more shower into the other shared room I´m sorry that you are not able to see that, but yes to write this poor comment.


Staff were amazing, very welcoming and friendly. Recommend the waterfall trip with Adriano! The breakfast is unparalleled..even from my business travel days!


Best place I stayed so far in South America. Awesome staff. The breakfast is a dream. They also organize cool tours and bbq. Thank you guys. Loved my stay there!


I stayed in a 8 bed dorm. It needed more power sockets as the sockets were only on one side of the room which made it difficult to charge anything. There were also ants. The owner is a lovely man who goes out of his way for you. The breakfast is amazing!

Thanks for the sockets suggestion, That will be fixed soon. I did an agreement with "the" ant, and she said that if there is not more big storms as that afternoon and we continue using poison everyday, she will be out of the room, but only if we apply the same restriction with the gekos.


Only stayed 1 night but really liked this place. Good atmosphere and homely feel. No A/C but fans were good enough in my room. Massive lockable trunks in rooms. One of the best breakfasts I've had. Very close to the bus station (but not noisy). Didn't use the pool, but it is tiny. Wi-Fi was slow, but finding this is the case in many hostels. Comfortable beds.

thanks for your comment. There is A/C, you didn´t see it cause that day was cold and nobody switch on see you next!!


Favourite hostel ever! Really homely and in a lovely house with hammocks and swimming pool. Breakfast was amazing comfy beds everything you would want in a hostel.


A very laid back vibe at this hostel. It's right next to the bus station (3 minutes walk) and 30 seconds from a really cheap supermarket. This hostel is great to meet other travellers from around the world. Breakfast hit the spot, I didn't need lunch after that lol. Staff were very friendly and helpful. ¡Gracias!


Literally a stone's throw from the bus station. The place was ok but nothing more than that. The highlight was clearly the breakfast, which was amazing. The whole place just felt a bit overcrowded though. Too many guests and not enough room. Staff were a bit indifferent to us, which is neither a good thin or a bad thing I suppose. Beds were ok, but they're all conjoined so that if one person moves in the night the entire structure shakes. Bathroom facilities were poor.


Very friendly and helpful staff, great location to the bus station and supermarket. Easy to arrange tours and for bus information for local beaches. Air con in dorms but not in private rooms!


The hostal was very beautiful and the staff is all about helping you. They serve the best breakfast we ever had in an hostal. You can also enjoy the swimming pool, small but very convenient, giving the very warm weather.


As everyone said, the breakfast was gorgeous, stuffs were nice, and house was pretty. Thanks for giving me a great time.
