Really enjoyed our stay at hi hollandes. We had a few problems with the shower in the dorm but they let us use a spare private room's bathroom while they fixed it. Atmosphere was really good it's a sociable hostel and everyone was very relaxed. Nice outdoor communal areas including hammocks. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hostel!

This hostel is the most beautiful I have stayed in-you feel as though you are in the middle of the jungle, with the lush green vegetation of the island surrounding you. The place has a very spacious and tranquil atmosphere. Rooms are comfortable and clean and the bathroom and shower could not have been better. The breakfast is fantastic-the freshly baked cake and granola were a personal highlight and the staff, in particular one Brazilian guy, were lovely. There is no better hostel on Ihla!

Amazing, very clean, a little bit difficult to find but everyone on the island is super polite and willing to give directions. Breakfast was AMAZING. such a cool vibe/atmosphere, would love to return

The location is awesome, makes it feel like a jungle retreat. The rooms are well laid out with comfy beds. And the shower, if you know how to use it is always hot. However the staff are not as accommodating as one would expect of accommodation. Only 1 staff member seems to care about the guests happiness to the rest it seems like to much of an effort. The kitchen situation is joke. And preferential treatment is clearly obvious. It's a shame because this place could be number 1.

We had a very great time in this hostel. The rooms were very humid but I think this is more an island issue rather than the hostel.The staff was really nice, especially the guy in the kitchen. They were are always willing to answer our questions and help us! Bonus: the cats were just really adorable :)

Nice little spot up from the beach. Great facilities - beds great, big soft blankets, free filtered water, big breakfast, etc. Attracts good group of guests. Worth the money.

I am so glad I picked this hostel. It is UP from the main street, for sure, but it is signposted from the main street. The hostel's own website has the best map. And do cross the little bridge and always keep left on your way up. The breakfast is superb with a good selection of fresh fruit, cereals, coffee, tea, milk. And as other reviewers have said, there is a limit on one roll with ham and cheese. However toast and jam are available too. It is in a setting surrounded by nature. I'd return!!!

This place is more of a retreat than a hostel. The location is a short walk from the main road, restaurants and beach. Breakfast was good. Cereals, cake, biscuits, fresh fruit, bread, cheese and Ham. Cake, coffee and filtered water always available. Wifi was continually dropping out but I think that was across the whole island. Staff were helpful and kind. Kitchen was very small. Staff kitchen was 4 or 5 times the size of the guests kitchen. We weren't able to use this facility which was a shame

Loved the atmosphere. Plenty of space to hang out with others outside and great hammocks. Breakfast was good and consisted of cake, fruit, bread, and other standards. Lockers were solid, showers were hot, and beds good. Kitchen was really small and didn't have adequate pans - they should get a new large pan with a handle. Wifi was a bit spotty and slow but you're on a small island so just expect that and you'll be fine. I enjoyed my stay.

Chilled out authentic island hostel. Be aware of the steep walk up the hill to get there, but the hammocks make it worth while!

We loved this place. The rooms are quite cramped but the outside deck with hammocks is lovely. Breakfast is great and the trees and leafy surroundings are lovely. Very relaxed place to enjoy Ilha Grande from

This hostel lives up to all the great reviews that we had read (particularly the breakfast)! We stayed in an 8 bed dorm which didn't feel crowded, lots of space & nice big lockers. Staff are friendly & very helpful! Always happy to tell you about nice restaurants and things to do. There is a large common area which is nice for socialising, as well as hammocks to relax after a day of trekking! There is a kitchen, filtered water & they also offer laundry service which was great! Highly recommend!!

Pleasant, split-level dorm. Tepid shower. Atmosphere ranged from times when no-one spoke to over-noisy, even rowdy. But the grounds are beautiful and the staff obliging.

The place is amazing, and the staff that works there is really kind. Beds are really comfy, and the shower is awesome. Great breakfast. The only thing is that the wi-fi stops working from time to time, but that happens in the whole island, so it's ok. I'd totally come back someday.

If you like a quiet location, where you can rest and don't have noises of the village, this hostel is perfect. It's a bit far from the village, but still just a 7 minute walk.

Brand new hostel. We had a 6 bed dorm but our 2beds were downstairs, the rest upstairs so felt like we sort of had our own room. Everything was very clean and new. Breakfast was ok, everything very sugary. The woman at breakfast doesn't like to smile or speak to anyone but all the rest of the staff were friendly.
