We could not have chosen a better accommodation for our stay in Paraty! The host, Denise, was very kind and helpful - she made great recommendations for us to take advantage of every moment! The breakfast was delicious (bread, patisseries, fruits, chesse, coffee, juices), the rooms were very clean and neat, the garden inside is very quiet and pretty with many exotic fruit trees and little birds. We definitely recommend it and will visit again!
I had a great time in Bossa Nova. The location is very relaxing and really safe. It is just one block away from the main market and road. The dorm is big enough, very clean, new and confortable matresses and enough space in between the beds. Good breakfast and guest kitchen. The staff is very cool and helpful. I recommend.

The owner, Alan, is very helpful and provides many tips on activities in the region. The hostel is close to a supermarket and the bus station. It's a simple place but very pleasant and great to meet other travelers, enjoy the cheap dinners organized by Alan and talk for hours and hours drinking a beer. As soon as possible, I want to be back in Paraty and sure I stay there again.
The owner Alan was really nice and helpful. Kitchen was good and the breakfast ok. Common areas were not appealing. The 6 bed dorm was very simple and without any furniture expect for the beds, which were ok (low three-layered bunk beds). The room was also lacking any kind of storage possibility for clothes etc., i.e. table, chair, drawer, locker (there however were small safety boxes in the reception). The location was ok, but would now choose another hostel nearer to the historical center.
A really nice place. Host are really nice, they give us lots of information to do activities. Rooms are really beautiful.
We enjoyed a warm friendly atmosphere during our stay here. Alan and the team made us feel right at home and were very helpful in suggesting things to do in Paraty, as well as transport options. Comfy beds, with mosquito nets and good security. I enjoyed watching Brazilian films on the big projector screen! More of a 'pousada' than a hostel, with longer staying guests rather than travellers. But we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and good company!
A simple but very nice play to stay. Staff is just great, very kind.
We stayed here for 3 nights in June. Lovely owner and a really good breakfast. Location is OK - conveniently behind supermarket, and not too far to walk to center.
We had an excellent stay at Bossa Nova. Allan is in amazing host who could not be more helpful, I highly recommend this place!
