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


Excellent welcoming, information about the visits around the hostel


Highly recommended!


A "beer garden" where no alcohol is allowed. Great! No atmosphere at all. Do not stay here if there's rain, there's nothing to do in the hostel; no music, lounge, comfy sofa etc, only the wooden benches/chairs in the "beer garden". Bunk beds are very low. Coffin like. My knees touched the bunk above. Staff were nice and helpful. Probably the only positive.


Amazing environmental, caring with security and facilities. Also very clean and with a good staff. For sure I will return to there.


Positiv first: clean, +/- new, new and fast computer/internet. BUTS: Good place to be eaten alive by mosquitos. The hostels 5 min. up the hill don´t have this problem. Beds are good for gothic people: you feel like like in a coffin, burried alive - due to the 50 cm between the bed at the bottom and the upper. They put a plastic protection on the matraze - so every turning around in bed gets on your and the others nerves. No television. No alc. drinks allowed and bar is always closed.

Jean is lovely and extremely helpful. He made us feel very welcome. The hostel was very nice and clean. The beds were comfy and i like it a lot when there are large lockers and individual sockets and lights. The location was central. The only downsides were that there was no atmosphere and it was hard to socialise. I imagine this was because the bar was shut and because it was low season. Very expensive but all the hostels are there.


very clean hostel specially when you are comming from misty hostel down the road. Nice staff. just to bad the bar was not open, i was expecting a lot of beers but no beer bar at that time it was closed due to low season. we were not allowed to bring our own beer too. great location and nice athmosphere. defenitely worth going


There are no alcoholic drinks allowed at this "beer garden".... The staff is very friendly and nice, but this hostel didn't live up to its #1 ranking.


Great hostel but when I visited the bar next door was closed so the atmosphere wasn't as good as it could have been. Still definitely recommend staying and staff were super friendly!


Great Hostel, Very clean and Good location. Excellent Bar!


A nice place!


Nice hostel - good people, clean and comfortable. Good set up for socialising and the atmosphere was pretty chilled


It's a very nice hostel but not a party place, but there is a party going on on the island every day very close by. The internet was working very well and the showers had hot water at all times. Staff was super friendly and knew a lot about the island and tours to take. The kitchen wasn't that well equipped and somebody took one of my food bags although I signed it.


Amazing hostel!! It was so clean and beds were comfy. We were provided with towels and our beds made each day. Good quality large lockers, comfy hammocks, nice bar area and good kitchen facilities. Not right in beach but very close. Highly recommend!


Best hostel to stay on the island! The staff, Jean and Victor are so welcoming and helpful! The hostel is very clean and they do a great breakfast! This hostel made my stay on the island even better. Make sure you book in advance though because it gets booked out quickly!


Great stay at Biergarten! I really recommand the place! Great and fun staff, perrfect location and very clean! Au top l'ami!


Good hostel for staying in Ilha Grande. Quite pricey but so is everything on the island. Nice bar (great caipirinhas) and Jean was friendly


Staff spoke at least basic English (some fluent), which was very useful for getting information about the island, which was also available from the staff. Location is a few roads in from the main pier, with lots of restaurants nearby. Biergarten had it's own per kilo restaurant attached which we receieved 10% discount at and served really good food. Only point to note is that we had to ask for the staff to turn on the AC, we didn't get to keep the control ourself, which would've been better.


It was a very good place to stay, the location is perfect and the staff attitude was excellent. We really enjoyed our trip in this hostel.
