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!

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!

This was the best hostel I ever stayed in... Nice and clean, good location, low price, very good breakfast but very sweet... sometimes would be better to have more salty dishes .. but in total very good and nice place to stay :)

Amazing hostel at Ilha grande. Great and beautifull location, easy to walk from the boat terminal. Best breakfast ever! Nice staff, gave interesting suggestions. Internet is really bad on the island, so be prepared. We had a great stay, one of my favorite hostels ever! Can't possibly give a lower rate than 100%

Fun hostel. Great common area with a good vibe. It would be helpful if the staff spoke other languages - I speak Spanish and I still had a hard time communicating with most of the staff, who only spoke Portuguese (except for one, who spoke English). The location is great if you're looking for something a little out of the way. I thought the jungle vibe was fun, but you have to be prepared to walk a little ways from the boat dock. Overall, good hostel (and hot showers were a definite plus!).

Great hostel. Great atmosphere. The staff were really helpful, for example ringing to organise a boat trip, that started in one hour, whilst we had breakfast!

Everything here was fantastic minus (if I had to pick, the wifi was a bit spotty). Above all the atmosphere was what made the place. Set back from the beach, just far enough to feel in private and at peace. 10/10 would recommend.

This was the coolest hostel I've stayed at. By the first night I went out with the hostel staff and met so many new people. I wanted to stay much longer. I forgot my glasses in the hostel and Marcela (one of the workers) arranged someone coming back to Rio to bring my glasses with them. I couldn't believe her kindness!

Absolutely loved this hostel. Clean hostel with fantastic breakfast. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Fairly big hostel so it has the potential to be quite busy. We didn't mind that but something to bare in mind if you are looking for a small hostel.

Staff and hostel were fantastic. Highly recommended for solo travelers. Met a lot of great people and had a blast.
