Really nice hostel with a great atmosphere. Definetly recommended!


I loved this hostel! Great location, CLEAN rooms (!!), perfect showers, great internet, and best of all: amazing staff! I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. It was so nice to meet other backpackers from North America, Europe and Australia! And the restaurant out front has SUCH great food.. some of the best I've had in brazil! Would recommend this hostel!


Good hostel. Maybe not The beat of communal áreas or for atmosphere , but a cool hostel none The LEss, . Staff very helpful


We were so lucky that we lived our first two-three days without power or net due to a lightninghit. Still the staff made the best out of the situation. 'Yes can do'-kind of people! Creds to that!:)

Very good location and amazing buffet option. Only downside was one day lack of wifi (although was told this happened to the whole island) and one day the AC did not work, the latter which was really awful. Everything else was great.


Great location and value for our money. We had a private room with a private bathroom, very nice facilities for the money. AC worked great which is very important for how hot it can get! I would stay here again.


Very nice hostel, good facilities and super nice manager Jean who takes care of all your wishes and questions!


Super clean. Staff is friendly but only the manager speaks English. Kitchen facilities are great, bathroom facilities are ok (hair drier not powerful enough to work). Great location with 2 courtyards to chill in and the kg-rrestaurant/bar. Was with friends staying in other hotels and biergarten was always the rallying point. You can organise tours via the manager. I was disappointed by both (tour of the island was overpriced, rushed and all in portugese) and transfer (they ruined my suitcase).

Nice staff, good bedrooms and an excellent breakfast. There are few toilets and showers and they are very small, but clean. Very good hostel.


The Biergarten Hostel is a place where you'll most definitely meet awesome people! The rooms are air-conditioned, everyone gets their own spacey locker (no padlock needed) and there's two kitchens where at almost any given moment you'll find people preparing food or drinking beer. Very relaxed and helpful staff also. The wifi isn't really working most of the time, but i figured that this is an issue all over Ilha Grande, nothing to do with the hostel!


This is a friendly hostel in a great location with very knowledgable staff. The hostel is kept very clean and the breakfast is great. I think that guests should have access to the air conditioning instead of staff turning it on at night as it gets incredibly hot during the day. It's a bit pricey too but all things considered I would stay here if visiting this beautiful island again.


I had a great time at the hostel. The staff was very nice and always ready to help with anything you need. I'm looking forward to visit them again.


Amazing location on the amazing island of ilha grande. Lovely staff and a great atmosphere.


Excellent hostel, great staff, great rooms, A/C was highly refreshing on hot days, good common areas, and overall I'd highly recommend it.


Location was great, really comfortable hostel with super clean rooms and bathrooms. Staff were incredibly helpful and really enjoyed time spent there. Highly recommended (and I may just be going back next week it was that good)!


The 8 bed dorm upstairs is spacious, big lockers and the WIFI was okay (it was quite slow sometimes but I suppose that's quite normal on an island). Breakfast was great and the restaurant as well. Would be even better if you would get a little discount for it as a guest of the hostel =) The beach is not far away (5 minutes walk). Supermarkets, shops and restaurants just around the corner. Nice place to stay.


Great location, excellent place to meet people and the staff were great. Very helpful. Lots of showers and toilets so no queuing. The bar does close early and the staff will turn the lights out on you, but the rooms are quiet and well soundproofed.
