Very helpful staff, great location on the beach, close to the old city. Internt wasn't working but we could use WiFi at Geko Hostel next door. Breakfast on the beach :-))


The staff was very helpful and kind, but they messed up our booking. We ended up paying more than we were supposed to. They required a 50% deposit before arrival, even thou it wasn't high season, which we found unnecessary. The wifi didn't work at hostel for five days. We could use the wifi at the neighbor hostel, but that almost didn't work either. But besides this, it was a great hostel with friendly people.

Hostel was set in a really good location right on the beach with a great beach bar that was always busy in the evenings. Lots of options for breakfast and the cooking facilities were better than most places we have stayed! Clean rooms/bathrooms which had lockers and keys for each room. Most importantly, really helpful as friendly staff to help us plan our stay, especially Larissa. Altogether great hostel!


This is the best hostel in Paraty. Dorms are clean and breakfast is on the beach! The nearby bar has lots of great live music and the staff are very friendly and helpful.


The room was SO small to fit 9 people. It was to little space for that many people and especially their belongings. The three stories bed was awful. The bathroom was dirty and also too small. Wifi did not work and the one computer was there was slow! The only good thing about the hostel was the location on the beach. It should get a comon area as well.


Nice Hostel right at the beach front. The Hostel Bar is on the beach breakfast and dinner is served here really nice in the mornings and evenings to chill out by beach .. 10-15 Walk to the bus station. There is a hostel pick up from the bus station. We got a taxi to hostel and they covered the cost. Free Cocktail from 7:30-8:30 each evening. Rooms clean with AC. and lockers. Defo stay here again.


Great hostel. Staff very nice. Got moved to Geko hostel (next door) because the room in Chill Inn was full. Geko was nice but the toilets shower was weak on the night we arrived to Chill (2nd night). Otherwise very happy with the hostel. Right outside the beach, one free Caipirinha (Brazilian Drink) per day in the evening.


The staff at this hostel are so nice. Sometimes they might mess up your reservation (I actually ended up in Gecko Hostel not Chill Inn - they're the same owners) but they always make it up to you. The breakfast on the beach is beautiful and the dinners are good value - who knew pizza made on a barbecue could be so good! The 6 bed female dorm is spacious with good a/c. I would definitely recommend it!


The hostel and staff were very good. They need a better common space, because is either the bar in the beach or just a table in the kitchen. They should be more careful when acommodating big groups: I was alone with a big group in my bedroom and they were a nightmare.


9 bed dorm was cramped; had top bunk of 3 which barely had headroom. Didn't seem to be a huge amount of security with the main door open most of the time. The location was excellent. Close to the beach and restaurants. Atmosphere was really chilled and nice though found some staff to be more accommodating than others. Peruvian guy on reception was particularly cool, as was Brazilian girl. 15 min walk from bus station with lots of shops on the way. If I stay here again would stay in 6 bed dorm


Very good hostel located in front of the beach! The "restaurant" is in the beach and you can take breakfast, drink frozen juices or caipirinhas and lay out in the sun. Our room was a bit noisy since it was located just in front of the kitchen and next to the laundry. It is only 5-10 minutes walking from the downtown. I really recommend this place!


Great location on the beach however far away from the town centre if you needed anything. Rooms were average, we had a stuff around with check in as they put us in the wrong room which meant we had to change rooms the next day due to their mistake. They say they have wifi but it never works. The bar on the beach does create a great atmosphere to have a few drinks and watch the sunset and make new friends.


This hostel is in a wonderful location right on the beach, where the complementary breakfast is served every morning and turns into the bar/restaurant at night. The hostel is also very conducive to meeting other people traveling on their own. The staff are also incredibly friendly and helpful. I was only planning on staying two nights, but ended up staying a week because of how great they are!

Really sweet staff, awesome breakfast on the beach, great location. Definitely recommend. If you stay here make sure you walk up the hill behind the hotel, really pretty view.


Friendly staff, very cute and small hostel next to the beach. Everyone was very helpful but the building could do with some face lift. It looks a bit old and dated


Met some awesome people at this hotel. Breakfast on the beach is the best! 9 bed room was definiely a mistake, it looks like a cell. Paid extra to upgrade to 6 bed female, which was way better. Close to the centre and all that jazz. Tip: don´t book your tours here, as they are way more expensive than the ones organised by agencies in town! But in general, good hostel, friendly staff and no complaints.
