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.

Some of the towels and linens were very old, they could have been changed. Some of them had stains also. The breakfast was great, the location also very inspiring :)

By far one of the best hostels I´ve ever stayed in, and definitely the best on Ihla Grande. The staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is excellent, in a great jungle local but not too far from the center. Also, the breakfast is out of this world! Do not hesitate to book!

We had a very relaxed stay at the hostel, it was really good for us. Not all staff spoke English, thats the reason I rate staff average, all of them were friendly and trying to help.

Incredible breakfast. Comfy beds. Clean. wonderful garden, social but not a party hostel. One small drawback is the size of the kitchen, please open the staff kitchen up to guests!!

Amazing spot. Stayed in a little cabana. Cats became my best friends. Electricity randomly went out, but this was true for most of the island. Internet not good in the cabana's, but it works well in the central area. Decent breakfast. Ilha Grande is definitely worth a visit.

Stayed for 7 nights in Hi Holandes, there was a little walk up a hill via a slight winding path but worth it for the feeling of seclusion. Staff were helpful and all good English. The rooms and showers were great, very clean. Not a party hostel but still plenty of people to meet and great hammocks to chill out in. Island electricity and therefore wifi a little temperamental but part of the charm I think. Hostel perfectly facilitated chilling out. Downside, communal kitchen a little small.

A beautiful hostel, a bit out of town, with rooms set around nice grounds. Run by the daughter of the owner, she was so accommodating and flexible. Breakfast is amazing, loads of fruit and freshly baked cake. We had a dorm which was really nice and big, with fresh towels laid out on the beds. There were a lot of power cuts when we were there due to poor infrastructure on the island and heavy rain, but the manager provided candles around the kitchen and dining areas. Highly recommend.

Hostel is a little walk away from the main part of town but it's not far. Could be better signposted (a sign on the hostel entrance would help). Being able to use the large kitchen instead of the tiny one for cooking dinner would be a big improvement. It seems strange not to let guests in a big hostel use this spacem instead it is kept for staff only & they only need it for breakfast time. Allow guests option of more than one piece of cheese & ham at breakfast, not everyone wants sweets/cake.
