Very nice hostel in the historical district. Not far from anything. Nice staff and a really good breakfast!


Friendly staff, good location, cleanclean. Would recommend it!


We did not have a good experience at this hostel. I understand that the prices are higher this time of year, but it was too expensive for what it is. The eight bed dorm is not big enough for eight beds and backpacks, certain members of the hostel staff are out of it, the wifi barely works, the rooms are oppressively hot with two fans between eight people, and the breakfast is one of the stingier ones in SA. The courtyard is nice and I suspect, at a lower price, it'd be fine. Try elsewhere.


they have no wifi...not even a internet conection...on the site it said they can spwak english...not true at all. the beds are in a really bad condition..also the sheets and pilows...breakfast is good..so is location...the courtyard is quit cute.


Amazing location! Staff were really helpful, breakfast was good. Will stay there again without a doubt!


Very nice people there. The owner is a very nice person. He lives there with his wife and child. Always happy to answer your questions and help in any possible way. I'll be back next this month.


After staying at other guesthouses in Paraty, I must say, the price you pay here for the room is an absurd! The rooms are very old and need urgent renovation, it looks like it will all fall apart. And the safety is very low, everybody come and go whenever they want without anybody looking if people are staying there or not (this is a very important issue in Brazil, as foreighs are a easy target for criminals). I would recommend looking for a guesthouse in Paraty, better comfort for lower price!!

We have cameras and a recepcionist in our hostal working for 24h. Please inform HostelWorld if you realize that you have made a mistake. Thank you!


Everything was great. The courtyard is just a great place to have breakfast or just hang out. Replacing the pillows shouldnt be too much of a problem.
