This was truly a great hostel, largely in part to the staff! Some of the most helpful and enthusiastic I've met, always telling about what activities and party's are on, we are not big partyers and felt no pressure to. We were in 10 bed mixed which was nice, 1 bathroom but not an issue at all, there was a separate sink and mirror outside the bathroom too, lockers, night lights, shelves for the top bunks and individual power points!!! Breakfast was a good selection: cereal, fruit, and toasties!

Genuinely the best hostel I've ever stayed at! Can't put into words how good it was. The staff, vibe, view and experience was great! The view from the bar and breakfast area is to die for and the free caipirinha's at 7 aren't too bad either haha! If you're going to party the hostel organizes transfers in and out of the hostel! :) if you're staying here DO NOT MISS GOING TO A P12 PARTY or you will actually regret it!!

Beautiful location, rooms a bit warm and small, and WiFi is poor, but if you're looking for something peaceful and close the ocean with stunning views, this is prefect. Special mention to Mariella (spelling could be wrong), she was amazingly helpful with organising buses for us, thanks again Mariella!

I had a great stay at this hostel. The staff are friendly. Breakfast is good and the chef serves up great meals at the bar in the evenings. The ocean view is amazing. The dorms are a bit cramped. Wi-Fi is only accessible in the reception area. Be sure to bring mosquito spray as there are a lot around the reception area at night!

Here are some thoughts about the locations and the hostel: -If you have a car, it's a good location, because you can go either to the beaches in the north or to the ones in the South. Barra da Lagoa is located more to the center of the island, so you don't need to make long trips, as if you were more to the extremes of the island. -The environment is very nice and the staff is very helpful and friendly. They make you interact also with the other travellers in the house. Breakfast is great.

Hi Michala, We are so glad you liked you stay with us! When i travel, i always bring ear plugs and bug repellent . You never know when you might need them. Summer time parties and all that... Also, you knew that your 10 bed dorm did not have A.C. when you reserved your bed.But it has 3 ceiling fans. All Good! Thanks again! Take care,Jim Rehman

Good hostel, very helpfull and friendly staff. quick walk down to the beach. dorm rooms only had fans and not A/C but it was okay (top bunk was better) closer to the fans plenty of activiteis to do, or just chill on the deck or a the bar

Great spot close to the beach, stores and restaurant. Very easy to take the bus to visit Lagoa da conceio. The vibe is good and staff very friendly. The view on the beach and the free caipirinha very night makes it worth every penny!

Stunningly beautiful, peaceful, and nicely spread out across the slope, Barra Beach Club is still an excellent hostel. It might not have quite the facilities one hopes for from a newer hostel. The vibe among guests wasn't great - among the different social spaces, there was never enough of a critical mass to make a party. A fantastic retreat nonetheless.

Very relaxing clean hostel. Friendly staff. Ocean front views. Close to restaurants and shops and beaches although a 40 minute bus from the busier "downtown". Beds were comfy, large lockers, big clean bathrooms, nice free breakfast, and a great bar for meeting people especially when they do the free drink around 7pm

I stayed at barra beach club over Christmas and New Years 2015-2016. The staff is awesome, the facilities are clean and the food is very good. The only negative is that during peak season (New Years eve and New Year's Day) running water can be a problem because there are so many people on the island. That's okay though because we just we surfing for our shower that day.

My favourite hostel in South America for numerous reasons. The staff are amazing, the atmosphere is great, the location is perfect, the food is always good, and the rooms are just right. Had a great time here and didn't want to leave...
