Really just a safe budget option for visiting Isla do Mel, the location is perfect, putting you in the middle of the southern part of the island. It's understandably very quiet and rooms are kept reasonably clean. Breakfast is extra which is always annoying and the staff keep themselves to themselves. Benefits from being virtually the only budget option on the island, nothing special but puts a roof over your head in a good location


No locks on the doors. Kitchen was really small, only one can cook at the time. Cold showers.


Fantastic area and great value. Need bigger lockers. Proper closing doors on the NetSuite bathroom. Wifi is terrible. Overall the area is incredible ans well worth two or three nights.


Nice and cheap hostel but the young man who works there didnt let me to put my medicines in the fridge after the check out. Even not for just 4 hours! He said that he will put it on the floor and let it go bad if i won't pay more. And he didn't let me to sit in the hostel with a friend who didnt stay there. He was unpleasnt.

Good place, very close to the beach and to the supermarket, but a little bit far away from the lighthouse and the fortress. Staff is nice and always trying to help.


The days me and my girlfriend spent at Hostel Encantadas Ecologic were fantastic! The place is amanzingly well-located, the atmosphere is great and Pedro (the owner) is a great guy and does everything for the guests to feel good! I definitely recommend it!


Ótima recepção e cuidado com os hóspedes. Estão super dispostos a fazer recomendações sobre a ilha e interagir com os hóspedes.


The hostel itself is not bad and the location is great but I just can´t recommend this hostel. Ilha do Mel has a lot of mosquitos - a lot, and I´m pretty sure the staff knows this. I´m not saying to put up mosquito nets around each bed but I found it ridiculous my room had a sliding door that was open all day, and no net. The room had more mosquitos than outside it. The second night I could not sleep through it and left the room to go sleep on the docks.... At least the island is safe


The atmosphere of this hostel is the same as the Island very very roots, which I like the most, so it's very simple, but a good value for money, the staff are very nice and helpfull.


Nice a relax hostel in a cabain. Very closed to the point where the boats stops. The staff is friendly and relax as the place. The only negative thing is they dont have breakfast and the kitchen is small and not well equiped


Very friendly staff, location is great and the island does the rest. stay here for if you want to enjoy the island at a good price and make new friends.


The hostel is well-located in the small settlement of Encantadas, nearby restaurants, bars and supermarkets but still really quiet. The place is pretty simply like all other accommodation there but there's really no need for more on the island. Last but not least, the staff is genuinely friendly and helpful.


A basic hostel, but that is really all you need (and can get) on Ilha do Mel. It is near the dock and next to the pathways to all points on the island. They have nice hammocks and a good terrace to drink a beer. Wifi is not that fast, but that´s more a problem of the island. Pedro offered to bring me to my next hostel in Curitiba for a fair price, which saved me a lot of effort and hours. Sometimes he was just not present at the hostel though. All in all, would go there again! :)
