Hostel did NOT have the room we reserved when we arrived, claimed it was an error with Hostelworld that they knew about and still needed to fix. This was on a holiday/busy weekend, so no other hostels available. They offered a random house nearby that did not have the same quality level (i.e., no A/C, not enough beds, poor bathroom, etc.). Had to book a room at hotel for 4x the price for decent accommodation.
Nice hostel, the main reason you should go there is for the beach location, nice breakfast and dinner straight on the sea! Nice staff as well!
Fantastic location right on the beach - beach bar which you get a caipirinha voucher for on arrival and which also serves the breakfast. Good cooking facilities under a covered area outside and nice little area to chill. Good choice for Paraty. Check out Trinadade while you are there though!!
We stayed here in November and we had the worst stay ever! There are two hostels side by side and a bar on the beach, which belongs to the hostel on the other side of the road, approx 20ft away. The boys who run these hostels run riot at night and keep the bar open til 4-5am in the morning. No guests, just them. They are aggressive and rude and think that the hostel is for them, not paying guests. We asked them 4 times to close the bar & turn the music off, but they just laughed at us.

Decent hostel, always clean, rooms cleaned daily. Not the best set up kitchen, hard to use when it's raining as you get wet and oven has really low power. But in sunny weather it would be just fine!
A great hostel, perfect for backpackers. Dorm room was quite basic with no lockers but very clean. Staff on reception were very helpful and friendly. Location is perfect - right on the beach and only a short stroll from the main colonial centre. Breakfast on the beach was beautiful. Free caipirinha upon arrival. Free use of a computer in reception. Loved it.
I had very nice moments here. Wonderful place with great atmosphere and an amazing bar. I hope to go back there one day. The staff is a differential too, they are always helping you with anything that you need.

Very close to the Paraty town centre by a easy walkable distance. It's an average hostel that met the expectations.
