Nice, clean and welcoming hostel in Ilha Grande. Beautiful garden and a quiet place. Recommanded.
Beautiful Hostel would stay there again
A nice hostel in the hills away from the hustle and bustle. A bit of a walk in the rain but otherwise fine. Wonderful breakfast of fruit, cereal, cake, ham and cheese rolls, juice, and good coffee. Very clean rooms. Only con was no soap in the bathrooms.
Fantastic hostel with amazing staff! Met some incredible people and we loved our time here!
Outstanding hostel - wonderful place to stay, an absolute dream! we stayed in the private huts and it was fantastic
Awesome! This hostel is so relaxing and serene. It's located in the treetops and has such a chilled vibe! Wifi works fine. People are all really nice. Rooms are good! Would come back again
I really loved my room, it was like a family house , great breakfast, with laundry service and above all friendly and helpful staff. I even got to practice my little Portuguese :)
Staff don't speak English but it was nice area feeling like living in the forest. Wifi is bad though but pretty much the same in the island! Not very helpful with the tour stuff.
This is a very nice hostel if you like a relaxed stay on Ilha Grande. The small houses are located in a semi-forest environment which gives it a nice atmosphere. Breakfast could be better, unless you like cake. Cake is the main component of the breakfast, haha.
Clean hostel in a peaceful setting. The location is easy, only hard part is getting up there with your bag in the first trip but after that the walk is easy. Very chilled atmosphere, but suits the setting. Wifi was really poor/ non existent which was frustrating at times.

Way too far from the beach, really clean facilities but to big to really get to know people. receptionist wasnt really available to ask for and some didnt spoke english at all?! braskfast was same as usual.definitely go to some place nearer to the beach and city.
The hostel is big. you have a nice bar , good breakfest. rooms are very comftarble and the staff are very friendly.
Talked to loads of others I met on ilha grande and hollandes was definitely the best hostel to stay in, especially as it's one of the cheapest! Amazing atmosphere, great dinners and breakfasts and the free water filter was great. Staff were lovely but only one could speak English which was annoying! Wifi was dododgey but probably best on the island... And hot water! Whereas some people complained their hostel actually ran out of water full stop! Amazing amazing, wish I could go back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Holandes! There was a really nice atmosphere & we were particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the hostel, in both the common areas and the rooms. The breakfast was fantastic with a great selection of fruits and teas/juices... rather than just the usual bread rolls and ham. They also put on a buffet dinner during the week for 18 reals each - it was absolutely delicious! Definitely have it at least one night! Overall, we had a great stay, reccomended!
We had a great stay at HI Holandes! I would definetly recommend it. :-) Nice rooms, helpful staff, good breakfast.
All rooms were very clean with comfy beds and with everything you may need. Great breakfast with loads to choose from, with limited cooking facilities but sufficient for making basic dinners. Location is a little out of the centre but only 10 minutes walk max and the hostel is set in really nice and quiet surroundings. Wifi not great but worked on and off - no worse than anywhere else is South America! Staff really helpful too.
Wonderful place with a charming atmosphere. The Hostel is very beautiful!!! Stuff is very friendly and helpful. Everything was excellent!!!

Nice hostel. With a chilled vibe and hammocks everywhere! Not far from main port and restaurants.
Nice hostel, very comfortable beds. Wifi didn't work, one receptionist (there is one at a time) wasn't interested in the wifi problem at all and couldn't speak English at all.
