I loved that Hostel! Especially the atmosphere! The only thing is that the electricty went off a couple of times, so there is no light, warm shower or wifi than, but it seems like this is a problem of the whole island! Breakfast is good, rooms were nice and clean. I would definitely stay here again.
Very good vibrations at that hostel. A very good place to stay for a longer time. Great breakfast.

Really great atmosphere and lots of outdoor green space. The breakfast is great with lots of fresh fruit. Comfy beds and nice spacious dorms (well laid out so it doesn't feel like there's 8 people in there). Staff are nice and happy to book trips/transfers for you. It's a few mins walk away from the main road but such a nice hostel to stay at that it's worth not being right by the main pier. Would recommend to anyone visiting Ilha Grande.
Incredible hostel, really relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and amazing breakfast. Would definitely stay again!
Very lovely place! Staff was helpful and welcoming. Sempre volto.
For an 8 bed dorm it's too expensive and I don't care if it's on an island. The place is nice but uphill so a bit hard to get there with a suitcase. The room is big and there is no AC for 8 beds only 6 beds which is too expensive. Breakfast isn't that great. Staff is excellent
This is a very good hostel. The staff even baked a cake for me when they found out it was my birthday. Will definitely come back.
Very cool laid back hostel. Ilha grande is amazing
Great Hostel. Friendly and approachable Staff. Great facilities, although the Wifi was often out. The place is settled in the hills a little away from the beach. But it makes for a relaxing get away after a long day. Highly recommended. Thanks for the hospitality.
The place is charming, beds very confortable. People great. I would try to impruve bathrooms, the shower. But must say, the best breakfast ever at a hostel. It is hotel level really. And very charming soroundings. Peaceful.
Nice location, just a few minutes walk from the Main Street. Rooms are a good size with big lockers. Wifi is patchy as it probably is everywhere on the island. Some staff speak better English than others. No A/C in rooms, but fans were enough during my stay. Loved the island. Would recommend.
HI Holandes is a very good hostel, the atmosphere is fantastic! Very clean and new. The beds are really good and the shower as well. We can cook and stay together with a lot of nature. One of the best hostels in my jorney around Rio. If you don`t like animals, You nedd to know that there are some cats , but the cleanliness still excellent
Nice little hostel. Wasn't first choice, but enjoyed our stay. Staff friendly and hard working, dorms cleaned daily and spacious. Liked the surroundings and short work to pier and town. Maybe a tad overpriced.. didn't think value for money given where else we'd stayed in Brazil and paid far less - even in Rio over New Years was cheaper. Saying that, had a pleasant stay, would stay again and would recommend.
A perfect jungle retreat only 5 mins walk away from restaurants and the beachfront, with very friendly staff who were happy to look after our luggage once we checked out, and helped us with getting to our next hostel on the island... thought it was Abraão ended up in Grande das Palmas! Had to take a taxi boat. Stayed comfortably in the 6-bed female dorm with AC, ensuite & hammocks outside. Spacious communal area with games and smell of freshly baked cake! Breakfast was a treat. Highly recommend!
A nice hostel with a very relaxed feel. The location is a 5 minute walk from the centre giving it a more secluded and chilled atmosphere. Rooms were clean and the hammocks were a real highlight.
Upon our arrival, the power was out. The wifi they offer is very limited and works less than half the time. Other than that, it was great!

Very nice place. Good location just outside the center of the town. It's like a big garden with some rooms and small private cabins in it. Good breakfast.
Nice looking hostel where the rooms are located in seperate little houses, with each a few hammocks in front which is very relaxing. Staff is overall Brazilian and only Portuguese speaking. Almost no wifi signal, you're lucky if you manage to receive and send some WhatsApp messages, but no more than that. Kitchen facilities very limited. Hard to find, some signs at some point but the crucial one is missing (ask around). Overall, a good hostel but I think there are better ones on Ilha Grande.
Nice and clean hostel but a bit expensive for what it actually is. No A/C, noisy beds, kitchen is small and not so well equiped, wifi doesn't work (only a few times a day), the staff is ok but they don't make sure everything is alright. 5-10 minutes from the "centre" but alright. Nice garden.
One of the nicest places I ever stayed. It´s a little juwel of a hostel. The walk isn´t far and as well, it shoudn´t play a role when you have a chance to stay at Holandes. There´s nothing to say --- a place to relax and to chat away if you want to. Delicous breakfast, great beds and very kind staff. It was hard to leave. Go there and appreciate this place!
