I have been traveling for 6 months, and this is THE BEST hostel I've stayed in! Pablo, the owner, is beyond amazing. He makes you feel welcome, and creates a wonderful community atmosphere by cooking nearly every night the most INCREDIBLE meals, including caipirinhas for 25 reals. The breakfast is unreal - everything you can possibly imagine. His hospitality is what made this hostel such a great experience. A MUST visit, especially if you are traveling alone.

right next to Bus Station! The Owner Pablo is very helpfull with trips and everything. There is a dinner every evening with some included Caipirinhas which offers a perfect opportunity to meat some other travellers. The Hostel offers also a cheap Laundry Service. Had really nice days in Paraty

Minor criticisms: only 2 toilets which had issues and the beds are close together, quite hot at night. But it doesn't matter at all. This was my favourite hostel so far. Huge, varied breakfast, great dinner deals (get the BBQ) with loads of caipirinhas. Lovely atmosphere, it felt like we were in a house with lots of friends. The staff are so good and the waterfall trip, R$50, was one of my favourite days in Brazil. Hammocks, a pool & a puppy. Great location, next to bus station & supermarket.

This hostel was excellent! Really nice atmosphere, the owner was definitely kind and friendly, places were very clean and very very well located. Just 1 minute from bus station and 5 minutes from historic center (walking). Beyond that, there was an impressive breakfast! Delicious! Big table with different types of natural juices, bread, snacks and tropical fruits! I highly recommed it!

We had an amazing stay at this hostel where you immediately feel at home. Pablo is the best host you can get and if you're able to do the Waterfall Tour with him, then you definitely should! We can also recommend his dinners (BBQ, pizza and loads of Caiprinhas) and off course his amazing and endless breakfast! Definitely the best choice if you stay in Paraty!

I've loved my stay here, Pablo was extremely helpful at all times. It's a very comfortable place, it makes you feel at home. The Cachoeira trip is amazing, definitely do it if you can! Couldn't be more happy with my stay here.

We had an amazing time here, thank you so much Pablo and staff!! The breakfast was delicious and the hostel was really cozy. The pizza Pablo made for us was incredible! If you are there for the pizza night definitely don't miss out. We also really enjoyed the trip to the waterfalls and kayaking. Best hostel so far in South America.

The staff was great - they kept the Caiparinhas flowing and the outdoor area was very cool with lots of hammocks.
