Leo was awesome! He helped us with everything in Paraty and the rest of our time in Brazil and Argentina, so helpful and not just that, he can sing like a rockstar. He made our time in Paraty the best!

Hostel was totally fine - the 6 bed mixed dorm room was REALLY small, but the AC worked great and the beds were moderately comfortable. The common area didn't have a whole lot of space to chill in, but the staff was SUPER nice and helpful and overall it was a really nice experience. Leo and Carla were the best - they helped us so much and were also great to hang out with.


Good value for money: good, clean rooms en nice breakfast on the beach.


Lockers in the doorm was broken, only 2 fully working for 6 people? Only toilets in the rooms, which is not much when many people are staying. Location is good, jusst on the beach which is awsome for breakfast, however the seawater in this are is so hot that its not very nice to swim in. The (delicious)breakfast buffet was empty at 9 am(breakfast till 10) so we didnt really eat 1 day as well, why I can't rate value for money higher. The place needs some couches and stuff to make it cousy.

We stayed in a 9 bed dorm and it was a little crowded but such is the nature of a 9 bed dorm. People aren't kidding when they say the wifi is bad. It is bad, often infuriatingly so. However the position right on the beach and proximity to the old town is excellent and we had such a relaxing stay we extended it (moving to a 6 bed dorm!)


The hostel is nice and we really liked the beach bar. But the dorms with 3 stock bunkbeds are bad. We slept on the top ome. It was dangerous to get in and out og bed because the fan was directly at the top of the ladder. The bed didn't have a security thingy in case you move a lot in your sleep. The cleanliness was in all nice but the pillows and matresses were dirty and we were happy that we had our sleepingbags to sleep in.


This is a very nice hostel if you want to realax and meet other people. The hostel is right next to the beach, and it is also many other nice beaches not far away. The breakfast is good and it is nice that you eat it at the beachbar. It takes 10 minutes to walk into the old town and it is very nice with all you need. I really recommend this hostel! The straff was really helpfull and nice too.

I loved how breakfast was served on the beach, and how the chill inn and geko seemed to be just one hostel, with no difference as to where you hung out. Except the fact that the wifi was non-exsiting at the chill inn and actually functioned at the geko. Some staff members spoke english fine and were able to help, whereas others did not speak english very well. It is a fine hostel, delicious breakfast!, nothing special, but nice for beach times.


The hostel is located right on Pontal beach and the breakfast is on the beach so it's nice. GREAT BREAKFAST. The rooms are very packed and small so not very comfortable. They need to put less beds in one room. Staff is okay nothing special. Nice stay. Internet did not work at all.


The wifi not worked Said it was because of the rain but even on a sunny day. 9 people's room upstairs is very crowded but the best of what we have seen mainly because of air conditioner. Excellent breakfast the hostel. 10 minutes walk from the center. 2 meters from the beach. We loved


They are stingy with the air conditioning and the wifi didn't work at all. Besides that it was a nice hostel.

Its got all you need: across from the beach, beach bar, A/C, close walk to old town. Staff can help arrange tours.


Great hostel. Right on the beach


Some of the staff just seemed completely clueless. Some of them could give you a lot of information, others knew as much as I knew myself or less...but they were all very friendly. Drinks and food are not cheap at all, every other bar in town will charge you the same for a drink. There were tons of advertisements for a tour, when we asked, they told us that the guy is on vacation....then why do you advertise?! Overall the place is nice, clean and has a perfect location :)
