Pedro, who runs the hostel was really accommodating when we had to leave early one morning. The breakfast was good, with fresh fruit and bread. Pedro, was helpful and friendly.


Great location very close to 2 beaches, a few shops, a restaurant and bar. Nice chill out area with a few hammocks. Gave us plenty of extra blankets and his sleeping bag when it got a bit chilly in the evening. Fresh breakfast on the first day. The owner was so lovely


Lovely little island hostel with a warm host Pedro! Pedro was lovely


This place is pretty average, internet didn't work, kitchen is very small and pokey and the owner doesn't speak much English. No breakfast but the owner did cut up some fruit for us one day randomly. Not bad, just not great.


Very nice Hostel with excellent host


Pedro was the most wonderful host! He made us a lovely breakfast each morning, and even made us toasted sandwiches and coffee when we arrived late and wet! The hostel is small and nice with a decent kitchen and wifi. The only things I didn't like were the Mosquitos and the damp, neither of which could be helped. Obrigada, pedro!


We had an amazing time here! It is a cozy place with a very welcoming host Pedro. We only wish we spoke better Portuguese so that we could chat with him more. We liked Encantadas more than Brasília - a second town on the island. The surroundings are amazing and everything is walking distance. We definitely recommend this hostel.


Ilha do Mel is an amazing spot. Definitely worth the trip if you need to get away from all the hussle and bussle of the big Brazilian cities. Pedro the owner is very hospitable and a really nice guy.

Good staff and really nice place to stay!


I had a really great stay in this hostel! Thanks to Pedro for the brithday t-shirt and everything! The hostel is on a perfect place, the people i met there were amazing! So go to this hostel if you stay on Ilha do Mel!


Great hostel on a great island. As a backpacker you rather stay in Encantadas than in Brasilia, which is another village on the island. Brasilia is more honeymoon like. The owner Pedro is a great guy, really helpful. Personal breakfast every day and even made hotdogs and pizzas for us. Stayed for 6 nights, fully recommend!!


Our plan was staying at Ihla do Mel for 2 nights and we ended up there for a week. Exploring the island and enjoying the quietness and chilled out atmosphere. Our host Pedro made us feel like being in paradise. Definitely an awesome place to stay on the island!


The owner of the hostel was very friendly and welcoming! The hostel itself was really nice decorated with hamocks etc. We appreciated our stay at ecologic!


The environment there is amazing. This hostel is very clear and it is very well located. The owner, Pedro,is a bit systematic, but he is very helpful ,tpp.He resembles almost a father sometimes! But that's ok, sometimes it is fun. So, this hostel is well-worthy: good price for good stay.


Pedro is very nice guy, he is very attentive to the customers' needs, makes a delicious coffee. Thanks for having us in your hostel!


I thought it was breakfast included, but it isn´t, You could have breakfast paying 10 reais more.


Its a very nice hostel with a great athmosphere! The owner, Pedro, is a really nice person!

Lovely place, very relaxing, good atmosphere, great breakfast. My mozzie net turned out to be a good idea. The owner, Pedro, is wonderful! Thanks for everything!


This hostel are awesome. Pedro the owner is such a great person and he makes your stay unforgettable. The whole hostel is made by him and it looks like adventure and stories to tell. We stay there 5 nights and we were very comfortable and happy. We will always come back and listen to one of Pedros stories. Very nice!
