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.
Our first stay was great. The workers were pretty helpful and we had airport pick up. I would have rated it pretty high. However, after visiting Bonito, we decided to go back for the night. We showed up pretty late and the lady that lives there did not know we were coming (when we left we asked about a new reservation and thought everything was set up). So, we ended up standing outside for 30min trying to get ahold of the lady to wake up and let us in, in an area that she had said wasn't safe.
