I had trouble finding the hostel because the directions are really poor. I came from the airport and i didn't know you had to change bus to get to the busterminal which is so far out of the City. I ended up driving around for more than an hour by bus before I got out and took a taxi. I also tried to get the airport pickup but my emails never got through. The hostel is very close to the busterminal, so it is a good place to stay for one night.
You can walk from the busterminal in the day!!! So don't let the taxidrivers fool you! Really nice breakfast. We came at night(cause we spent 7hours on the border to get from Bolivia to Brasil) and they were already at bed...so we had to wait outside the hostel for half an hour!
The staff at Santa Clara were lovely. Even though there was a language barrier the hosts were very kind and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. My friend and I couldn't believe how clean and homely this place felt when we arrived. After enduring a 27 hour bus excursion to get to Campo Grande, Santa Clara was just the right hostel to arrive to and feel excited about sleeping in knowing it was going to be very comfortable. Cheers to the guide Thomas for arranging a short tour to the pantanal
The busstation is 5min. away by walking. The city center is reachable by bus 15min. To buy food wasn't easy cause the shores aren't close and not easy to reach by public transportation. Only one stuff member speaks english
It was a quiet hostel but very clean and comfortable. Close to bus station. Far from the city centre, but can catch a bus easily enough. The lady who lives there caring for the place is fantastic. She's very friendly and welcoming. I don't speak portugese, but we were able to communicate with hand gestures and the little spanish we both knew. And at night, the capybaras come into the back yard to graze.
We stayed here just as a stopover on our way from Rio. For a quiet, relaxing break, this is perfect. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The location feels like the middle of nowhere; no shops or restaurants nearby but it's close to the bus station so suited our needs. There's not much guidance with booking tours to the Pantanal but the bus station has lots of tours offices.
The woman that stay's around the house can't speak English. If you don't speak Portuguese, than it is quite difficult to communicate.
