Clean and well located hostel, with helpful staff. There was ac, lockers and two private baths in the 6 bed female dorm. The bar wasn't as nice as i supposed it would be when i read the other reviews, but the hostel is great.


Very nice hostel! We were staying in the 6 beds female dorm, there was 2 private showers and a toilet, air co and lockers. It was very clean. People at the reception are living on the island so their advises were very helpful. We had a wonderful trip around the island that i would really recommend. Breakfast was good and the restaurant "kilo" from the hostel is also good. We really recommend this place :)


Nice hostel but a little pricey


This was a great hostel, just a tad expensive. Lovely spacious rooms with good beds, 2 kitchens for use, clean bathrooms, great breakfast and nice common areas. Per kilo restaurant attached with great food. Would recommend!


The staff was really nice, the location was nice and set back from the street, it is next to a restaurant that's cheap and good, and the bar was fun. It also has AC and they give you towels which is nice. The lockers are also massive and new.


Good location. About 10 min walk from ferry terminal. Located with a great restaurant with food by the kilogram. Hostel bar was busy until around 11pm and then the music stops so if you want an early nights rest not the place. Breakfast was decent. Very helpful staff.


This is a wonderful hostel on a wonderful island. The food in the restaurant is great!!!! I would come back here again. The girl's dorm had air conditioning and was cleaned everyday!!! Staff spoke good English. :)


Helpfull staff, nice atmosphere, people from all over, good breakfast, nice bar...


I stayed in a 3 bed dorm and it was a very nice room with 3 single beds - no bunks. The kitchen area was nice too. There's a per kilo buffet restaurant and bar downstairs which is convenient. I found that it wasn't a very social place - the rooms are fairly separate and people generally kept to themselves. Maybe the hostel could organise some social activities to bring people together a bit more? I don't recommend the 'door to door' transfer back to Rio that they sell - not worth the money.


There were ants in the toilet, no hot water so we had to have freezing old showers and the breakfast staff were quite unfriendly.

The staff was very nice and helpfull and the surroundings were beautiful, clean, calm and cosy. The room was nice and got cleaned every day


I loved the room, the big lockers, the two showers in the bathroom (so there could be more than one girl inside)... The breakfast was good and diverse (bread rolls, cheese, ham, eggs, cake, etc.), the location perfect (in the middle of the town). However, the prices in January were crazy steep, and not worth it.


Ripped sheets on bed Noisy common area, people drinking despite no drinking policy Small private room Buns not emptied regularly enough in toilets


I had a great time here. As a solo traveller it really helped that the hostel had it's own bar. There's also a fantastic little restaurant connected. It's clean, safe and secure. The breakfasts are great. All of the staff are friendly and so helpful when recommending things - I chose to do a lot of hiking and they were always able to direct me to the starts of the trails. I met some really lovely people here, there's a nice atmosphere in the hostel. Would definitely recommend it!! Thank you!

Great hostel with a cheap bar and a good breakfast, basically all you want, air conditioned clean rooms and a good bar downstairs to chill and relax, if you are going to ilha grande, stay here!


Good hostel on Ilha grande located in the city center, 2 streets away from the main bars and the beach. Power cut for few days when i was there so no wifi at all. The food served at the restaurant is just incredible and the free breakfast decent and with few options. Very helpful and lovely staff too!


Really clean hostel!! Sockets at beds and night lamp! Very very friendly and helpful staff! Food is yummy and cheap!


Highly recommended! I liked both the 4 person dorm and 6 ladies dorm. They both had ensuites and the 4 person one has a mini fridge which I found quite useful. The hostel's in a good location, right in the middle of everything. Great vibe, good people. Worth a stay!


Excellent place to stay, clean, nice, helpfull staff, the best.


I'm really glad I managed to stay at Biergarten!Staff is engaging and worth pure gold!Great reastaurant,nice breakfast,nice location.@Travelers:Most tours of the island begin early in the morning.Getting from Rio takes 4-6 hours depending on the traffic,so you won't have any tour the first day.If you have time the best option is to stay three full days.First day arrive,second day full tour,thrid day hiking.I highly recommend you to take the minivan-boat transfers from Rio and back!
