I had a great time at Biergarten Hostel! The bunk beds are a little squeaky, but that's the only thing I can think of that wasn't great. The staff is very nice and go out of their way to try to help you!

This is one of the most amazing Hostels I've ever been! Completely worth booking it. Maybe organize some events at the hostel would be even better!

Great hostel! Nicely build, good choice for breakfast, clean spacious rooms and good lockers (I loved the little extra shelf inside). If you are an early to bed person bring earplugs because the bar outside can get a little noisy (but not until too late, no worries). But the best is definitely the staff, exceptionally friendly and helpful! There are not many hostels where you are so well cared for, always with a smile. Thank you so much!!! :-)

Overall a very good hostel - people are very friendly and helpful - beds are slight hard and make sure you bring plugs if you stay in room close to bar even though it closes at reasonable hour. We stayed in 4 bed mixed dorm with ensuite. Decent breakfast, they also have good pay per weight restaurant. Happy with stay and would come back here.

Was a great weekend stay, the owner of the Hostel was great, he even took off the first night of our stay because we didn't arrive in time. The room was fantastic, had an air conditioner and was really comfortable. Would recommend this hostel to anyone that plans a holiday to Ilha Grande.

Very organized and clean, especially the bathrooms (which are shared by all rooms). Also very friendly staff and the breakfast was very good for a hostel (bread, cheese, slices of cake, cereal, milk, juice..). The lockers are excellent! Huge! You can fit almost everything in there. The only drawback is that anyone has access to any room, since there are no door lock. There's also a great restaurant in the hostel. Not so cheap, but a fair price for the food. But drinks at the bar are tremendously

Everything about this hostel was great! The only concern I have is that some of the bunk beds were not stable and felt like they were about to collapse. However, I'm sure the staff had already don't something about it :)

nice and quiet hostel, efficient staff. The private room was comfortable and clean, with air conditioning, and the breakfast was tasty. We had no WIFI for the 3 days we spent there, but apparently it was a problem for the whole island at that time. The biergarten restaurant was also really good (pay by weight).

Lovely little hostel on a stunning paradise island. Great location with clean, nice rooms and comfortable beds. It's not a crazy party hostel so you'll get a good night's sleep but with such a good location you won't be missing out on everything going on on the island. Only negative was that the toilet's could have had a little privacy (sliding shutter for a door and right by the kitchen) but when you're backpacking I guess you get used to it. Definitely pleased we stayed here!

The hostel was excellent. The kitchen was great, the staff (especially Anne) was really kind and helpful. The only problem was the pillows, which had a terrible smell.

Really nice hostel in central area of Paraty. As others have said there is not a common area as such, but nice little courtyard and open area near kitchen.

Pretty decent all round. Good location near beach. No common area really in this hostel so not aerating place really. Would stay again

We really enjoyed our stay at the Biergarten Hostel. The private room is very big and it is cleaned every day. The breakfast is delicious. The atmosphere is very relaxed. We definitely recommend this hostel with its friendly and helpful staff. When we come back to Ilha Grande, we surely will stay again at Biergarten Hostel!

Rooms and staff are nice! Sadly lot of loud animals (rootster and dogs) outside the hostel made it hard to sleep during the morning hours...

Beautiful place! Staff was great, the lockers come with locks/keys and the hostel cat was always amusing. Make sure to bring bug repellant as the mosquitoes at night can be very very annoying. Oh and they have hot/almost boiling water every morning for showers!

Super nice place. We got the private 3 bed so I cannot vouch for the other rooms. When we arrived there was a security guard that did not speak English, so checking in late was rather difficult. Ending up flagging someone down from the street to help with the situation! He thought we were showing up at midnight to party. Can't blame him, but maybe the guards should be more aware of guests checking in late? All in all a great place and I definitely recommend it.
