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.
Don't stay in this "hostel" (its really a hotel from the stone ages and lost its HI membership). It may seem ok from a distance, I.e. good breakfast and pool, but my room was horrid. It was hot inside, there was no toilet paper, the tap in my bathroom didn't work (and nothing was done about it), and I suspect there were flees or bed bugs, because I had them jumping all over me after I left! The hotel is in a bad area and their tours have a bad rep in Campo Grande.
We booked as a package to the pantanal!its not worth staying here unless u are going on a tour. If u book the tour u get a free nights stay at the hostel and a free nights stay at bonito which that hostel is one of the best we have stayed in. Bed was really hard, toilet had a hole above it and would drip on ur back if u sat down on the toilet. The sink tap would leak and there was no glass on the bathroom window so mosquitos could get in!breakfast was average.
Dodgy area right next to the OLD bus station, which is now a shady den of who knows what. Theres a dodgy hotel next door with prostitutes coming out often, so maybe a brothel. Also heard bad reviews of ecological tours. We went with pantanal discovery (through Gil, recommended by our lonely planet and who operates from nacional hotel around the corner). The tour is more expensive but it seems to be a lot better though not been on ecological so cant confirm for sure.
We stayed here a couple of nights between our Pantanal/Bonito tours and going to and from Rio. It was relatively quiet and the room was clean - the shower was slightly cold but it was nice to have running water after the Pantanal! Staff were lovely and really helpful in arranging the Pantanal tour, giving us a discount because we weren't doing as many of the activities and helped put us in contact with everyone to sort our time in Bonito. The tour was AMAZING! Would definitely recommend :)
