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.

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.

Perfect location for doing all Island activities. Lacks a good communal area but it's still easy to meet people. The restaurant was closed when I was there but has since opened, so can't comment on that. Best showers of my trip so far, always super hot and strong. And towels provided which is rare and appreciated! Would recommend to anyone staying on the island.

Awesome place. Staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. Cleaners clean the rooms everyday so it's spotless. One of the best hostels I have stayed in.

I enjoyed my stay at biergarten hostel. it is well located and has a good atmosphere. the staff (the owner) helped us a lot with our planning. breakfast was good and our room (we had a bathroom inside) was suitable for all...

Small rooms and some problems with damp (it was raining a lot while we were there!) However, overall we met some great people and really enjoyed our stay here!

Great hostel with awesome staff. Pity the bar and restaurant were closed the few days we were there; if they had been open it surely would have boosted the atmosphere.

Our stay was a good one at biergarten, a shame that the restaurant was closed but still managed to eat out at some other venues. Some take card payment if you are low on cash due to NO ATM's on ilha grande....Lockers come with own keys which is handy, Internet is not the best but this is on the island throughout which is a pain when trying to book transfers. We really enjoyed the hiking on the island which makes it a very nice place to be.. Ferry price has gone up to 14 reais per person ...

one of my favourite hostels. off the main street on ilha grande but not far at all. bar was closed when we were there coz it was so quiet but that's understandable. very good value for money. nice ppl working there, very helpful re directions, etc.

Great hostel that's close to Abraão port so there's easy access to all parts of the island. Security leaves a bit to be desired but good apart from that.

Very well run hostel. All the things travellers appreciate like big lockers, hot showers and a decent breakfast. Staff are really helpful and friendly and I was able to totally relax and enjoy what the island has to offer.
