This is a great hostel on an amazing island! It has everything you need and a good breakfast. My only criticism is the bar man. He's the grumpiest most miserable you will ever meet. Then when he shuts the bar he decides to go and use the hostel computer to Skype his girlfriend at midnight speaking at the top of his voice outside the dorm rooms.


Great hostel with very helpful staff. Chilled vibe, the bartender was a little weird and definitely inappropriate toward women. Rooms were big, beds comfortable, and air conditioning good. Bathrooms varied from nice and large in some dorms, to horrible and sized for infants in other parts. Overall a good hostel and a short walk to the main port/street. Try the crepes to the right when you exit the hostel.


The room downstairs is very noisy, and there is a direct light on the porch shining inside when the light are on making it difficult to sleep it would be a great help to add curtains on the Windows. The lamps on the bed are a nice thought but they do not work as you cannot plug them - the lead is too short . Would be great to let everyone know about the ac at the reception as well as about the eggs in the morning as me and my roommates only rediscovered it the day after. Cheers


I had a good time there. We stayed in an ensuite private room. There was a lot of space and they cleaned the room everyday. The hostel also has a nice atmosphere at night. I would stay there again.


One of the best hostels I stayed in S. America. I stayed 3 nights but wanted to stay longer. The 6 bed female dorm ensuite was very spacious with very nice bathroom. Paula was awesome and super helpful. Bartender also very nice and sociable who typically takes people to the party after -Acuario! Atmosphere is great, very chill and relaxed vibe, great for meeting other travelers. The buffet restaurant is pretty good and convenient. Wifi was excellent. Would definitely stay here again :)


I stayed four days at the hostel and only have good things to say. The athmosphere was great, the comum area was really enjoyable, the staff very helpfull. The breakfast could be a bit better, but other than that, I have no complains at all, going back at new years.


My first time in a hostel and Im really surprised with the infra-structure. Well located, friendly people and also clean. Definetly I intend to back.

We enjoyed our short stay at Biergarten. The weather in Ilha Grande was pretty crappy while we were there - We would have enjoyed our stay a little more if the hostel had organised an event of some sort to entertain the guests while there wasn't a whole lot to do on the island. The pay by weight restaurant at the front of the hotel is great!


Veey good for the football if theres a game you wabt to catch.


Stayed in biergarten for two nights and really liked it. Great value from money and 5-10 mins walk to beach. Nice breakfast with a toasted sandwich machine. They didn't change the toilet bins regularly enough resulting in a strong, unpleasant smell and we saw a cockroach in the common area. Apart from that it was an enjoyable stay.


BEST hostel I stayed at during my entire time in South America. Staff do everything to make you feel comfortable! Really chilled atmosphere.


The place to stay in Abraão, Very social hostel - impossible to not make new friends! The restaurant in front of the hostel was also very, very good and cheap. People staying other places in town actually come to this hostel to hang out and eat dinner, drink, etc. My only complaint was that the wifi signal was kind of weak and didn't work in my room.


Nice hostel but wouldn't recommend the 8 person rooms. The ceiling is quite thin and it hangs right over the bar area. Other than that great place


I stayed in the newly renovated female dorm, clean with big lockers and bathroom with two showers. Breakfast was great. Staff very very helpful. Very nice atmosphere. I have no complain to this hostel, and i would definitely stay there again!


Best hostel of our trip so far. Staff are incredible and helped us with everything on the island. Highly recommend staying here.


For me the best hostel to Stay in the island.Great atmosphere!!!!,beautiful,really Nice kitchen,great breakfast,has also a small restaurant where u Can eat great food, great lockers. People were nice, wi fi was ok.. At afternoon everybody get together to listen some Live music, talk and drink caipirinha. I felt like home.


Loved this hostel-so clean and facilities were so good. Staff were so helpful and friendly. Great atmosphere and met loads of really nice people! Could not recommend this hostel highly enough!


I stayed at the hostel for three days. This is a very nice hostel, the only problem was that the island had no electricity for my entire stay. This meant no hot water for showers and I really hate to take a cold shower and no wifi for 2 of the 3 days that I was there. I actually reduced my stay by a day. The breakfast here was good and the staff very helpful.
