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.
We were disappointed upon arrival to have to wait over half an hour outside ringing the bell with no answer. The staff were poor and never present and had limited information about the hostel and island. The wifi did not work and when we asked the response we got was `honey i know nothing about the internet`. The showers were cold and smelt of burning plastic and the advertised swimming pool obviously had not been used in a long time and was not fit for purpose. We will not recomend to anyone.
Horrible hostel, we couldn t sleep because of "bats" in the roof, the kitchen was unpractible and dirty. We couldn t use internet because there was a problem on the island...but it turns out that the problem was only in that hostel. Don t go!
