Nice hostel. Good location, helpful staff, good wifi. Beds weren't super comfortable (i hate top bunks with no rail) but okay. I would happily stay here again :-)


Great friendly hostel with a good bar and nicest bar tender you will meet! Great for meeting other people, and good wifi but only in the bar area. Good breakfast and good advice on how to see the island.


A nice hostel with good kitchen facilities. The rooms are quite comfortable, but no locks on dorm doors, good wifi, very clean. Try the restaurant just over the bridge opposite the pancake place, good cheap food. A good place to stay whilst in Ihla Grande.


The owner is a really top bloke. Really helpful and friendly. The bartender is a fun guy. Toilets are a bit tight but bathrooms are clean. Mozzies are a killer but that's outside their control. You'll find people in the common area near the bar. So good that I can back to this place when I decided to return to Ilha Grande.


Brilliant hostel! Perfect location, staff friendly and clean hostel. Stay here!


After been traveling for 2 months within Central America, I decided to go to Ilha Grande, where I've gone several times, and I'm glad I stayed at Biergarten. It's the best hostel I've stayed so far. Very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms, two well equipped kitchens and an welcoming atmosphere. I'm surely going back there soon!


The location is great - not right on the beach but set a block back on a fairly busy road so you're never walking back in the dark/alone. The manager, Paula, was wonderful but when I checked in, as well as when I checked out, only the cleaning staff were available and they don't speak any English at all to answer any questions. My room didn't have a lock on it but there were large lockers inside for my stuff. The showers were HOT :) and the bar is a nice place to hang out in the evenings.

The owners are great, spend time telling you whats good etc. very sociable hostel though the island itself is not a place for nightlife.


Really nice hostel with a chilled atmosphere. The manager was really nice and helpful and had lots of great advice. The cleaner even made our beds for us!! I would definitely stay here again.


This hostel has a fun atmosphere, a great layout and nice facilities. The breakfast was plentiful and nice quality. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. My only issue was that the beds had a plastic mattress cover that was very loud when you moved around in bed. This was somewhat annoying when trying to sleep in a dorm room at night.


We originally booked che lagarto for four nights. After one night we left because there was mold everywhere, it was disgusting. Biergarten was extremely clean and had very good sized lockers. It was two large communal areas and two kitchens. However, you cannot bring alcohol into the hostel and the hostel bar is extremely expensive. Furthermore, it only opens after 6pm I think. I would suggest that the decrease prices slightly or give discounts to people staying at the hostel.


Excellent hostel! Really friendly staff, awesome communal areas and a really nice, spacious room. Thanks!


Had a great time at Biergarten! Great value for money, clean, good lockers. And Victor who owns it is a legend! Highly recommend to stay here. Bloody cool place
