Staff were really good and helpful. We went during the Casassa festival so the town was really busy and this was one of the last places we could find a room. The owners also let us stay on an extra night even though they were officially closed which was really nice. The bikes they rent out also make it easy to get in and out of town and cut out the walk. Breakfast was also good and the supermarket round the corners is really useful.

No geral eu gostei. A localização é mais afastada do centro tradicional de Paraty, nada que uma caminhada de 10/15 min pelo canal não compense tb. E em compensação fica perto de um mercado e um restaurante. As pessoas são cordiais e solicitas. Generally I liked. The localization is farther from the tradicional downtown, but a nice 15min walk by the river worse it, And it is close to a market and some restaurants. Also the people are really nive.

I stayed there for two nights, it was fine. Althoug it's a bit far from the center, it is near a big supermarket and many facilities. There were no lokers in the bedroom, and the bathroom wasn't cleaned during the whole stay.

Hello, 15 minutes walking throw the main road of Paraty is not far a away, right? We are 1 minute away from supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, atm and bus stop. Our lockers are in the reception and we are very proud to get the best rate for security in Paraty. Nobody never had absolutely none issues about security in the hostel :) Also you stayed with us during Cachaça Festival and we were full, its why you though we didnt cleaned your 6 beds mixed dorm room but we do it everyday.

The hostel and staff were nice. But was a bit far from the city center.

Dear guest thanks for your words. I would like to clarify we are 7 blocks away from the historic center walking by the main road. Its 15 minutes walking and its a walking distance. We are behind the biggest supermarket in town where you can buy all you need and in the front of it the bus stop to easily access the most clean beaches of Paraty and some waterfalls. We are also 10 minutes away from the bus station but the buses also stop in the front of this supermarket. Its not that bad, ah? :) :)

Once again, I had a wonderful stay at Bossa Nova. Incredible staff, great atmosphere, a varied breakfast and clean facilities. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Paraty.

Good Place to Stay for a pleasant time in this interesting town. A little outside the city center, there is shopping nearby and the staff is always good for laugh or two.
