This hostel was amazing! Great vibe, awesome breakfast, the best wifi I've had anywhere in South America and the staff are absolutely wonderful!! So friendly and helpful in everyway. I only wish we could have stayed longer. :)
Love this hostel! met amazing people and I love the vibe, hammocks every where, swimming pool and 20 min walk from a nice beach. I loved Maik! And the lady who checked me in was sweet! I didn't like the girl working there from Barcelona, she was very rude and never smiled and caught her laughing and whispering about people!The breakfast could improve! All white bread with a cheese spread which was awful and watered down juice. Also no locks on the bedroom doors! Cheap BBQ amazing 25 real!

Great staff and v social. Lots of sofas and tables in the communal area and an excellent happy hour - 4 x beers for 10 BRL! We also had a great all you cant eat BBQ here for just 25 BRL each! Downsides - location not great. A good 20 min walk from the nearest beach (which is beautiful but v quiet, no bars etc). There is only a small shop and restaurant in walking distance from the hostel, all other beaches and town areas are a good 30 min bus away.
wow. this is a hard one. we didn't like it so much, and I will explain. its a hard one cause the owners, Ana and Marcio was sooo nice and informative. they went out of their way to help, gave us tons of info and let us check out late when I was sick. they are amazing! BUT- the other staff is not helpful( except for Tami!) and don't really speak English. its not clean at all, especially not in the two Private rooms. location is bad, 20 min walk to supermarke, beach, etc. enjoyed it though anyway
Great hostel overall. All staff members are very welcoming and always ready to help. Rooms are cleaned at least once a day. Bathrooms cleaned 2x/day with maintenance schedule posted in each bathroom. Showers in almost every bathroom so you never have to wait. Brazilian barbecue every night (if there is a demand) for a low price. Note that this hostel is far from all the major attractions but an bus/taxi ride is easily accessible. Well worth it if you're not looking for a party hostel.
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Greenhostel. The staff are all lovely, super welcoming, helpful, kind, friendly and sociable. Free pasta night was a plus, and the free pina coladas they gave us and other guests on our last day were delicious. A super generous hostel. It's location isn't excellent (15-20mins walk to the nearest supermarket and the same to the nearest beach) but the lovely house, pool and staff make it all worthwhile.
It is a quiet hostel in the nature but everything is easy to reach with the local buses. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Though the location can seem somewhat off in many eyes, I thougt it was okay. You had to take busses around the island. But the price, staff and atmosphere made it all worth while. Great hostel.
Such a fun and friendly hostel. We booked for 2 nights and ended up staying for 6. The staff are super friendly and the hostel has a friendly laid back feel. We were made to feel so welcome. Good bar area and hammocks to relax in. Campeche beach is amazing and only 20 minutes walk away.
I really enjoyed staying here. Very nice atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff, knowledgable about the area and can give you lots of good tips about where to go, how to get there etc Note: Not many cash machines that accept Visa in Brazil outside of large tows
Had an awesome time here! The owners are really nice, the staff were awesome and so was the atmosphere!

Kitchen needs a thorough clean and organisation to the cutlery available
Really enjoyed our stay. Hostel makes effort to make it social & relaxed. Xmas they provided a huge buffet, was brilliant fun. Communal areas have good spaces to relax; hammocks/sofas. Owners & staff are v friendly & offer advise for activities. Hostel is clean & for price has good facilities. Our first room was bit noisy from bar area & some dogs barking nearby. But next room better. Great breakfast selection, usual bits but also juicer with fresh oranges & freshly made cake! Would stay again!
If you look for a place like home, you're in the right hostel! It's not just a bed to sleep, Green Hostel is a state of mind!

Love this place!! Excellent value for money. The hostel is brilliant lots of places to relax, nice easy bus routes for if you want to get out and about, good rooms and lovely people! Ana was brilliant, we felt so welcome and comfortable. Ana is so helpful if you need any info for anything! We had an amazing time here and we hope to be back soon!!!
The Greenhouse is one if the best Hostel where I stayed in all South America! Ana, Marcio and all the staff are just amazing, as they'll make you feel like at home! The Hostel is really beautiful, is just 10min.walk from all the main facilities and the standard of cleaning is really high! Ana explained in details how to do to get to the beaches and how to get to all the main shops and places of interest. I wish I stayed longer there! All the best and hopefully I'll come back again soon!
Nothing to complain about! We were perfectly happy with this hostel!
Good location - walking distance to a beautiful beach and a bus ride away from exploring the rest of the island I spent my first night in Lago Barro and was very happy I moved to Greenhose hostel. There was a nice atmosphere in the hostel and the BBQ was great. Anna was very welcoming and helpful throughout my stay. But for the other staff, it took me a while to figure out who worked there as the other staff never introduced themselves to me, asked how I was getting on etc
Incredibly nice hosts and an amazing atmosphere!! Thank you so much for the days we spent at yours.
