We only booked it as a staging post for a trip to the pantanal. We were able to book this with the guy at 10 pm when we arrived, he was a bit of a salesman, but we booked what we wanted for a reasonable price and had a good tour and good info regarding onward travel to bonito and Bolivia. We were here during the world cup and there was a BBQ with the match which had a good atmosphere. breakfast was average, bathroom could do with an update.
No water pressure, the manager is a scam artist, and the area is not safe
No water pressure, unsafe area and the staff will scam on tours available. Negotiate, negotiate, negotiate. If you can find a better spot i suggest doing so.
BED BUGS!! stayed here 1 night & woke up to a bed infested with hundreds of bed bugs, no exaggeration the size of watermelon seeds, we pulled back the sheets to discover blood stained mattresses they have known about this for a while. We changed rooms and there was 2 bed bugs then were given another after they checked a few rooms & were saitisfied but we could not sleep. We had to approach management they offered no compensation we had to demand and were lied to on several occassions. Not Happy
Good hostel and good trip Organisation. There are other Reviews telling that the tours offered with Hostel Campo Grande would not be good but I may object to that. The tour was okay (not great, but not poor as well). And tours to the Pantanal always depend on the guide and the people that are on the tour. In our case, our guide was very nice (Nico), but some people of our group were unprepared (no Repellent, WTF) which f*ed off our guide and us as well. Organisation and accom. were good, though.

Only spent a few hours here, as I arrived late, and arranged a Pantanal trip the next morning, but everything seemed perfect. I was very grateful to the friendly man on reception who was happy to sell me beers when I arrived at 2.00 in the morning ! I had a private room for the same cost as a dorm, making it very good value.
