It's a good, friendly place to saty. Great location! Some things were not working, though, like the shower. And the kitchen was quite dirty.

This was a really laid back place with a really friendly and helpful host (even though we couldn't communicate with him very well because our Portuguese was terrible). Breakfast isn't included, but is well worth the extra (small) cost for lots of fresh fruit, eggs, toast and coffee. A great location near the boat landings and a short walk from a great beach on the eastern side of the island. Recommended.
Very basic but nice place. Good value for money and the owner is very friendly.
I liked more of Encantadas than Brasília, so the HOSTEL is very good place for me. Pedro is an greqt guy, good energy and very helpful. The Island is very safe despite there is no public lighting. There are no lockers at the rooms and the lockers in reception are too small and the doors dont have keys. It is a very simple and cheap HOSTEL. It was excelent for me
Great friendly staff in a beautiful location

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.

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.
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!
