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.
Had a great time in paraty but first night ruined by my friend and I woken up 3 times to move to a different bed being told by staff certain ones were free when not and eventually find out they overbooked 12 bed dorm. That dorm was terrible anyway, no space for bags, no lockers just 4 triple bunks in had shape. Moved to 8 bed which was much better with great view but we're given discount, not sure how much it is normally. Otherwise, var is great on beach, beautiful spoti
We stayed in a 12 bed dorm the room was tiny it didn't have a window, the room smelt terrible. This might just have been the 12 bed dorm I didn't see any of the other rooms. Good location and great breakfast.
