Cramped room, extremely noisy fan and... bed bugs!


The room was dirty, the bed sheets seemed dirty also, there were cockroaches around (which I think were related to the lack of cleaning), there were nails from previous guests inside the sink. For the money we payed they could certainly offer something more decent. I had troubles sleeping there. The breakfast was not bad though.


The staff was drunk and the pool and power did nok work - The fan in the room was poor so it was to hot - We will stay another place next time - Can not be recomended

the hostel was hard to find. There where probems with the electricity and water. the internet didnt work. The room was really really tiny for three people, it was really hard to geht space for our stuff. There where just one bathroom for about 16people.


It was oke for one night, but there are so many more better places to stay. Wanted to book a 3persons bedroom for 2 but had to pay the triple price on this website. Decided to go for a bigger room to pay normal price. When we arrived we got the 3persons bedroom for just the 2 of us that was nice. Except for the bloodstains on the sheets.


I think this hostel is the worst of Ilha Grande, far way from the beach, very dirty, full of insects, the breakfast was not so good with artificial juice and not so many choices. Then compared to other hostels I have tested in the island, this one is very expansive for what it offers.
