The staff and general vibe here were a dream. Everyone was so welcoming staff were incredibly helpful and there was plenty to do all within the hostel. Great set up. Since having left the hostel I have come up with a few bites which I think are bed bug bites, they definitely aren't mosquito bites, they are much smaller. I wasn't aware of this at the time but I think the mattress I was on maybe needs to be replaced or cleaned just in case. Thanks anyway for a great time Che Lagarto! :)


The staff members are absolutely incredible, and went out of their way to make my stay as fun and comfortable as possible. Breakfast was great, and the atmosphere around the hostel was excellent as well (especially at night). Would highly recommend.


Great hostel with excellent common area and bar, perfect to meet new people . Although Breakfast is poor, they should definitely add some more food.

Staff were really helpful and friendly. Great hostel dinners if you can catch one and occasional live music at night too. Hostel organised some tours which aren't bad but might be best to do your own research before booking. Overall, highly recommended.


One of the best hostels we've stayed in. It was clean and comfortable with good common areas. The staff were very friendly and helpful.


Lovely hostel with great atmosphere. Really nice chill out area in the garden/patio with a mini pool and hammocks etc. Staff were super friendly and relaxed. We arrived late at night and the dorm was full so they gave us a free upgrade to private. Cool bar too but not too noisy to keep you awake. Definitely recommend!


The breakfast was average / not that good. They were out of a few things, although the breakfast time wasn't over. The room and bathroom were good. Great common area and great caipirinhas at the hostel bar! Location is good too, aprox 7min walking time from the historical centre. It was a good stay!!


Had a great stay here in Paraty - special thanks to the staff who were REALLY helpful. 6 man dorm was tiny so a bit claustrophobic and breakfast was VERY limited with choice. However, nice location and would recommend and would happily stay there again.


Really nice staff very helpful. Good location 5 minutes from the bus station.


Really good location. 5 min walk to the bus station and 10min walk to anywhere else in town. Staff all really nice. Mexican night food was really good too! Dorms very clean and spacious.


super friendly staff, nice place in a good location


Great hostel to meet people and in a good location. The staff here are super helpful and friendly and I thoroughly recommend the boat trip organised by the hostel. Only negative is that the rooms could benefit from a few additional plug sockets.


We stayed in the 6-person room. There were 3 bunks / 6 beds in a space that would be better for 2 bunks / 4 beds. The door banged into one of the bunks every time it opened, and even then could only open part way. It was clean, though very humid and the bathroom got / stayed really wet. The common area outside had a nice atmosphere. The service was fair - most of the staff were kind of "spacey": you'd ask something and they'd leave to look it up / ask / help and were just as likely to never come


The rooms were tiny, we were in a 6 bed dorm that would've been tight for 4. The kitchen is tiny and not very clean, but the breakfast was great


No one likes the stuffs here


This hostel was really fun to stay at, the staff and the people were great. It's a short walking distance from most things within Paraty town, such as the bus station, supermarkets, restaurants, etc. The biggest complaint I have was with the cleanliness of the dorm rooms, especially the bathrooms. Also, in the shower in my dorm, everytime I touched the taps, I would get a small electric shock But otherwise, it's a great hostel especially if you want more of a party vibe
