You feel like you are staying at a friends house here. The owner is great and often cooks group meals or BBQ's for everyone, sometimes for a small charge sometimes for free. The staff were all super friendly, It is relatively small and as such everyone hangs out together, we did lots of group trips and nights out. There is also a pier just out the back where you can sit and watch the sunset which is beautiful. The main door can be easily opened without a key so security is not great.


Travelled for one month in Brazil and Lobo in Buzios was my favorite place! AMAZING STAFF! Lyzendro will welcome you as a family member! Strongly recommend!


Fine hostel in Buzios.. The place is clean and kept well, situated near the beach, although not a great beach. Alright stay. Not too much atmosphere though.


Great staff and great owner who were excellent. They made you feel like family. The hostel is about a 30 min walk into the main town but there were lots of cheap vans that can drive you. Lots of restaurants, grocery stores and shops right next to the hostel and the beach is a 30 second walk away. Good choice if you don't want to be right in the town.


What a great place to relax, cook meals in the fully equipped kitchen, and casually stroll to Porto da Barra and the beach, just 2 minutes away. New, solid bunk beds. Relaxed, calm, friendly staff happy to help with whatever request you have...Close to supermarkets, fruit stand, fish market, but away from the tourist crowds. Watch sunset from the beach a 2 minute walk away.


Really nice place near to the beach and services, the staff is awesome, we have such a good time, definitely recommend!

Do not believe the rating of this hostel, it is an ok hostel but not a great one. That being said, one of the staff members was way more interested in creepily hitting on the Argentinian guests than doing his job and was really hard to deal with. I'd give it a miss


The cleanliness of the hostel was ok, rooms/bathrooms were cleaned everyday and they also have a nice living area/kitchen/bar. Most of the staff were helpful/friendly, however, they always seemed to be busy or doing something else in which case no one was at reception. Check-in for example took about an hour. The wifi didn't work at all or very poorly. The breakfast needs serious improvements, since they only serve butter with the bread.. And some of the beds were not so stable/broken.


The staff is great and the hostel is ok fro the price in Buzios.

Such an amazing hostel. Great facilities and good location. The owner makes you feel very welcome and takes you on beach tours and city tours too. I've stayed in Brazil for 2 months and this has by far been the best hostel I've been to.


Should be able to give Staff more than 100%. Lizandro was very friendly and helpful, almost to an extreme. Took me and a couple who also stayed at the hostel to some amazing beaches more than 1h drive from the hostels. Thanks for a great stay Lizandro!


The place has a great location close to many beaches and there are restaurants and shops close by. It is easy to get to the city center by taking the bus since the hostel is on the main road. The owner of the hostel was very helpful and since he is from Buzios he had great recommendations of where to go and what to do that any other travel book or website would know to recommend.


Lizandro the hostel owner was absolutely class went out of his way to take us around the peninsular and show us a good time had a great barberque as his friend is a chef .

Lisandro and the Lobo Inn are truly awesome. The hostel is perfectly situated within a few minutes walk of amazing beaches, bars, restaurants, and super markets. The place has a cozy feeling and is very clean. Lisandro is extremely nice and accommodating - he grew up in Buzios and has great recommendations and even took us out one day to explore the island. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.


Thanks! But make the toilets not stink.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear Customer, Thanks to advise us about the odours, we have a problem with the siphon and now we have fixed to prevent odours.


For starters, even though I booked my place in this hostel I wasn`t given a room in the hostel but in another building 5 min away from the hostel. This was done without prior notice or information.. My friend and I were taken to another place like it was a normal thing or as if we were staying in the hostel..We were allowed to use the facilities...So everytime I needed to use wifi I had to go back to hostel.. Location of the hostel is good with frequent mini-buses going to centre 24hrs..


Great hostel, the staff is very friendly. The owner is awesome, he really wants to show his guests the area and tries to connect people with each other. I really recommend this hostel to everyone.
