Clean rooms, comfy beds, lockers in rooms, great breakfast, water filter, great common areas. Staff very friendly but didn't speak English very well and it is a bit of a walk from the pier.
The hostel was beautiful. The only problem is regular blackouts
This is a really chill place. It's away from the hustle and bustle and a good 10-min walk from the pier. All the nice beaches are on the other side of the island--a 2 1/2 hour hike or a boat ride away. You could easily chill out here for a week, especially after the roudiness of Rio.
Nice people. Very nice garden, hammocks. Could easily stay here for weeks. Ilha grande is lovely. Staff does not speak very well english. Wifi is very bad (everywhere on the island).
This is the definition of relaxed! Family asado feasts, hammocks galore ... It's like living with locals for a few days. If you need somewhere with all the mod cons this isn't for you but I fell in love with this place
Wonderful hostel, but not if you're looking for a place to party.
Ilha grande is a small Island. So location is not much of a thing. But of all the hostels in IG this hostel has the worst location. in the middle of the 2 drop points from the boat and up a hill. Staff (exception of the nice lady and her daughter) are really not friendly , they see you as a hiccup in there daily routine which isn't serving the guest. (but playing with phone!) The hostel has the best tour rates of the island! good beds, good dinner option for the guest. good breakfast
A really beautiful hostel. Stayed in the 6 bed female dorm. Very comfortable single beds, excellent bathroom. The Staff is really friendly and helpful. we had a great time!
Hi Holandes was the cleanest & most pleasant hostel I stayed in during my stay in Brazil. Nestled in the Jungle portion of the Island, the hostel was quiet, quaint and adorable. Run by a om and two daughters, the premises were spotless and staff friendly. If you don't want to stay on the dusty and busy streets of the Island, this is a great spot for you. It is a 5-10 min walk uphill, but worth your while. Breakfast was the best, plenty of hammocks to chill!
When you go with the bags you feel like it's far but then it's ok. It's a great place and it's definitely worth it!
It is a very nice hostel, with a good park and several rooms. It is a bit far from the beach but it is very quiet and green. Our room was very hot during the afternoon and evening (too much sun and no air conditioning), so we had to stay outside until late in the night. Apart from that, I really recommend this place!
On a tropical island in summer u definitely need air conditioning, a fan is not enough. In the room there was no place to hang your clothes, even though there was room enough to put a wardrobe. even though in a nice location, a little bit far from the beach and activities. Staff very helpful and very nice breakfast.
Loved it ! Very clean, cool and familial atmosphere, good breakfast, large beds in wood in the rooms with hammocks outside, nice and very efficient staff !
This was a really nice place ticked up on a hillside of the island but easily accessible. This is a chilled hostel and one which has families in it rather than just backpackers. It's quiet and relaxing so if that's what you're after then it's perfect. The staff don't speak much english but they are really helpful.
Great! Just need better directions to the hostel. Hammocks were great

It`s seems to be a little far from the center, but only in five minutes walking you are in the dock, so in the center. This hostelling is very very nice and quite. Its one of the best chance if you want sleep well and only hear the bird noise. Very happy to find it.
You could indicate better the way to the Hostel!
Very nice quiet surrounding, but close to city centre. This is a place where you have to stay when you are on Ilha Grande.
When we arrived on the Island it Took us some time until we found the hostel. At the first moment we were not sure if we are happy that it is Not directly locked at the see. But in the end we were!! It is such an amazing Place. Not too much rush but still enough so that its Not getting boring. The Staff is really friendly and helpful. we had a great time!
A bit of a hike up the hill to reach this hostel, but a lovely oasis once you get there! Nice dining room area for hanging out, though the kitchen area for guests is tiny. Great group of people was staying there, so that really made the trip!
