I enjoyed my stay at Praia do Forte hostel and would definitely come back. The location is excellent and the staff I encountered were extremely friendly (letting me check in early, remembering my name, arranging transfers etc). Since it is such a big hostel there isn't much of a backpacker vibe but the central courtyard is a nice place to hang out and the kitchen is good. It's clean, convenient and comfortable - just a bit quiet and lacking in atmosphere.


The hostel has amazing breakfast included, one of the best we have had! The staff didn't speak very good English though and we couldn't understand Portuguese so it was a bit hard for us to communicate to get any information on what to do or where to go to get laundry done. The rooms were really comfortable though.

great hostel, really clean, really good private rooms for the money - nice size, fantastic bathroom, fridge. Nice owner who speaks English and can tell you where to go. breakfast is decent rather than amazing. still best we had in Jeri though (stayed at two other places). Not so much of a social backpacker hostel as the social/breakfast meeting area is quite small, and it seems more a Brazilian crowd than international but should change, its a great place.


Very nice accommodation. Ten minutes walk to the beach. Hospitable staff.


Really nice hostel in a lovely beach village. The breakfast was great, great advice from staff who speak excellent English, wifi and internet work really well.


Spent a lovely two nights here. Staff were good, rooms were spacious and clean, good bathrooms. Breakfast was average and there was only 1 socket in the room but other than that all fine. Great location only 5 minutes from the beach and right near to the main street in Praia do Forte. I thought it had a pool - but it's just access to the natural pools on the beach not a swimming pool. All in all a nice stay! :)


Very nice hostel and very nice rooms. Really close to an hotel.


The hostel was the best part of my trip to the beach, honestly one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The thing is that the place is not for young people in the season of August (at least), is more for couples, families but definitely not people traveling by themselves unless you are a too quiet person.

Hi, in summer is always a season with more parties and more people. And winter is quieter. But we always have interesting people staying and interaction always happens! Thank you for your comment. Hope to see you soon!


Definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Nice breakfasts, great staff, lots of discounts - out of which I do not recommend visiting Casa da Nati restaurant

Hi, will always be a pleasure to receive you in our Hostel. Thanks for your comment. Best regards!


One of the best hostels in Brazil!! Felt like we were walking into a hotel - great friendly, helpful and smiley staff, lots of computers for use, kitchen and big communal area. Rooms were nice, clean and big but air conditioning should be a standard not an extra. Get discounts off of loads of places in the town which was fantastic!! Defo recommend this hostel, thanks.

Hi, it was very nice to receive you in our Hostel and hopefully return soon!


Good location. Need to pay for wifi connection.


Very good hostel! ... Clean, new furniture, nice decoration and common areas. I wish it was a little more fun though (maybe a bar at night?). Also the WIFI could be for free it's more than a standard now!


Friendly staff, clean facilities, and excellent breakfast.


the hostel is very well maintained, the staff is awesome and the breakfast amazing. absolutely to be recommended!


Loved the hostel! Met great people there, great atmosphere! The staff are all awesome people!!! Want to go back!!


Very good hostel : it is very well organized, clean, very good breakfast (one of the best i had during my trip!), nice garden with hamac, the staff is very nice and helpful. you have free entrance to the park projeto Tamar. i recomande this hostel !


I ended up staying here for a week with a blustered ankle post Carnaval 2012. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Continuing to offer material and ice to wrap my ankle and always checking how I was going. The hammocks were perfect for me too! The common areas are good and clean and the breakfast very good! And for a little extra touch staying gives you a free pass to Project Tomar, the local turtle sanctuary :)


Nice hostel in Praia do Forte with great breakfast and cool staff (thank you Taizzi!). Cool daily tours offered by the hostel. The beach is not too far. The only small issue was that there was a decayed wood smell in my dormery.


Very nice and clean hostel, the staff are very helpfull and happy, they really cool, the bedroom was nice and big, good shower and confortable beds!!! we really enjoyed our stay!
