Really bad staff especially 2 guys who work there. First time in 7 months travelling in south america that i have a such bad experience and bad staff very unpleasant. Very not helpful and a bit agressive to kick out from the hostel just after the check out. "You pay or you leave now!!!" Never again in all Misti hostels chain.

The staff was amazing. Some of the rooms are extremely small and have too many beds...Others are ok.

Good breakfast, kind staff. Dorm with just to many people (triple bed). Kitchen was mostly occupied by some old woman, she was spying on us every time we were preparing our food. Would not recommend this hostel, there are better spots.

Had a great time here. The staff are very personable with cleaners always on the go. It's small and a buy old but the cosy atmosphere makes up for everything with beach only a 5 minute walk Away. Breakfast is nice.

Really nice staff. Good breakfast (ham, cheese, good bread, cereal, fruit etc). Perfect location, 5' from beach and main buses, good shops nearby. The transfer to Ilha Grande they sell was good. Facilities are quite basic. Small kitchen (only 4 hobs, not enough pans); small dorms, too many beds, not enough space between upper/lower bed (you can't even sit); bathrooms/showers are OK. WiFi not always working. No storage room (they can keep your bags but just next to reception - not very safe).

DO NOT STAY HERE. I had a terrible experience at this hostel and would not recommend it to anyone. I booked a private room and ended up with bed bug bites all over my body. They don't use mattress protectors and the sheet they used was too small for the mattress. Terrible hygiene standards! The staff cannot be trusted either. I was told they would give me a refund for a second room I didn't use if they managed to let it out. Let it out they did but STILL NO REFUND & NO RESPONSE TO MY EMAILS.
