One of the few hostels in town. It is a big structure but the ambient is familiar. The receptionists work with a big smile on their face and are always very helpful. The location is ideal - 10 minutes to get to town and 10 to the beach, yet the hostel in a quite and safe area. The place is clean and the pool is definetely a plus. I would put more hammocks around and organize some churrascos or game nights in order for guests to bond a bit more. Overall, a pleasant stay!


Very nice staff, english wasnt an issue, they should be doing cleaning trainings for some 4* hotels i've been staying in Brazil and get some money out of it!! Big plus

Very good hostel well located and very friendly staff. Highly recommended


We stayed just before xmas and the weather was pretty bad which may have affected the atmosphere but it just seemed a little dead, with a different group of people and with it having a pool if it was sunny it could have been mega! its a 10 min walk to the beach which was ok with me


This was the only hostel we could find in PDG. The common areas are very nice (swimming pool, hammocks, computers) but the rooms (6 bedroom female) was too small. Staff were nice, WiFi worked perfectly and breakfast was great (fruit, bread, cake, EGGS). It lacks atmosphere thotho. But I guess its because there no atmosphere in the town itself


I recommend to everyone this hostel, its super clean, nice pool and atmosphere is very lovely. *Che Lagarto as Porto de Galinhas is preference for couple, if you are alone, or with group of friends, don´t hope to meet single girl, and beer hang out late on the night !


Great hostel with very helpful and friendly staff


Amazing hostel! Big relaxing area with swimming pool and hammocks! It's a must! Good breakfast, friendly staff and lovely cats!

I stayed 2 nights in a 6 bed girls dormitory with private bathroom. The room and bathroom were never cleaned. It is a beach hostel and even if you are careful and wash your feet outside, there is inevitably a lot os sand. Breakfast is OK. Location is great, close to the beach and to the city center.


The good thing with Che Lagarto Hostels is that you always know what you are going to get! This hostel was no exception from the general perception of Che Lagarto being clean, well equiped (internet, Wi-Fi,...) and good value for money. With regard to the Porto de Galinhas one, I found it to offer a nice breakfast, great common area with a big pool and very friendly stuff! Lots of cats in and around the hostel (you can decide for yourselves whether that's a good or bad point!).
