I went twice and both times I had a beauatiful time. The staff is friendly and the place is perfect to have a party or make churrasco. It's easy to go to the center by van and i'ts close to good beaches

I wouldn't recommend staying at this hostel. The location is good & you can walk to the beach in 10-15mins but the bathroom is dirty, there's only 2 showers and 2 toilets for all the dorms (male & female) so the toilets constantly smelt bad! The bin in our dorm was over flowing & the owner had come down said it was mess but still nothing was done. There is also no air con but this is stated in the information. I'd spend a little more and stay somewhere nice! We couldn't wait to leave!

That is a lie, there is separated 4 shower and 4 toilets on this floor. Everybody were smashed on carnival I am sorry but from now cleaning is the number one. You could also be more social, drink, talk, smile...

The bathrooms should be more clean and the staff should know more about trips they offer.

Meant to stay 1 night, stayed 3 and would stay longer if I could. Great place with great people, love the view on the lake from balcony. The dorms have very good room to keep the bags on the floor or under bed, so people didnt need to jump over each other and you could only lock the valuable stuff. Very good location for shop & laundry & buses to the centre - about 3min and beach 10-15min walking. This place feel like home! Thanks a lot Renan and Marina for making it so great!:) Btw awesome bbq!

A cheap and nice place to stay. Far from downtown, though...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Far?? Just get a van that works 24h and cost R$2 taking 5 minutes is far? If you would stay at tourist centro you would have spent 3 times more at everything, food, drinks, stay...come on jesus!

The place was great, very secure, and one of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in! Atmosphere was amazing and very close to the beach. I would recommend this hostel for anyone coming to Buzios!

Lagoon Backpackers is one of the best hostels I ever stayed at. Renan, the owner of the hostel was super cool and accommodating. The location was great and there are vans that pick you up right in-front of the hostel that will take you anywhere you want to go. The vans run 24 hours a day and only cost R $2. The set-up of the facility was very inviting to meet and hangout with fellow backpackers. I could have stayed there forever and would recommend this hostel to anyone.

Great place to stay! nice location (just a short van ride to center and tons of beaches), good facilities, and positive atmosphere. The owner Renan is super friendly and happy to show you all the best places. Also a good place for solo travelers- super easy to meet people!
