This hostel is amazing!! It has a great atmosphere! Pablo and the staff are wonderful and they organise BBQ and pizza nights! Also they organised a waterfall trip which I would recommend doing, we had a great day! Location is brilliant 2 minutes from the bus station and a supermarket. And the breakfast is absolutely incredible! Best one we have had in the whole of South America! We loved our stay here and I would definitely recommend staying here!


Do not stay anywhere else in Paraty, you will regret it. People from other hostels came here to chill. This is a true backpackers hostel and it is the best hostel I stayed at in all of Brazil. The owner, Pablo, hosts tours, I went on the waterfall tour and it was amazing. Breakfast was incredible, you get your monies worth from breakfast. Some people say the spaces are crowded, they are just more intimate spaces and you get to know everyone better because of that.


great location just a block from bus terminal. The staff was good but when the bathroom was out of use they did nothing to solved it they prefered play play station games or be concentrarted in facebook... At the end of the days bathrooms were no clean and showers flooded. great breakfast by the way. Tours they offer are more expensive than the ones offered in tour agencies.


This place is amazing dorms are clean and well kept, best breakfast ever served everyday, best barbeque ive ever had abd great value for money for all you can eat. Most helpful staff ever so friendly, will help you organise to see the best of the local attractions and also does an awesome waterfall tour.


Very nice hostel! Very nice breakfast! Very nice and friendly staff. Great, cosy little place. Beds are a bit crammed but you can live with that (yes you can). Recommended!


This hostel is very chilled, lots of hammocks to laze about in, very good common area to meet fellow travellers. We also had all you can eat bbq and all you drink caprihinas. Amazing breakfast spread. Very clean, loved it here


Great place close to the bus station, safe, fun ... the best food. Chill out in the pool, take a nap on the balcony, mingle at the BBQ ... this is the life.

Staff are really accomodating, showers could with a bit of an upgrade as well as luggage lockers.. Otherwise awesome stay, and the waterfall trip organised by staff was awesome!

Thanks Will, we are going to build more showers this year; the lockers are big enough but most of the people prefer to leave their stuff on the floor :( Have a good trip, boys!! Pablo


Less than 5 mins from the bus station. Nice areas to chill out and a pool if nice. WiFi was a but tetchy when I was there but better once everyone had gone to bed. I definitely recommend the waterfall tour they do. Cheaper and better than booking with a tour operator. Only problem we had was they messed up our reservation and then we're full, but this was promptly sorted out by Pablo who moved us to his mums guest house for the night. He was nothing buy helpful. Breakfast was AMAZING!


This is the best breakfast of all time. There are big lockers in the room, really friendly staff and nice vibe. Its not on the beach front like other hostels but the breakfast makes it worth the stay.
