We loved this hostel mainly because of its location. The breakfast is super good considering the ones we find in other hostel! We stayed in the upper bedroom (by the ceiling) and the only suggestion i have is the need of installing some sort of personal light near the beds (It gets very dark for packing/unpacking even when the light is on). One more suggestion is the use of a board to coordinate better the night activities, provide bus schedules,the best beaches etc.


The location of the hostel is perfect, but the problem is the quality of wifi signal, you only can be online in some parts of the hostel, and the staff is not very cheerful.


Location is perfect, near everything, and really quiet at night, you can sleep listening the waves.


Very good vibes in this hostel. The staff is really friendly and helpful and Carlos, the owner, a real Carioca, is still there to share some time with guests, talk about everything and give some tips about Rio.


We had an amazing room with sea view! Just in from of the beach. The hostel was located at the Main Street surrounded by restaurants & shops. Camila was excellent at reception, very helpful and her English was perfect. Breakfast was great too. Excellent value for money. A highly recommended hostel. Cheers.


If I ever go to Búzios again, there's exactly where I'm staying. Awesome location, breakfast served just fine and helpful staff. Be sure to check Nomad before booking any other hostels!


The location of this hostel is amazing. It's located on the Main Street, in the middle of the bars and restaurants and shops and yet at the same time on the beach. Because of the way it's designed, at night you hear the sea, not the streets. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the breakfast is great. The atmosphere and security let it down a little, the lockers aren't very secure and although the private rooms have keys, the windows slide. However staff are there 24/7 so not bad.


O cara do frontdesk é de mais! Sempre tenta fazer conversa, super legal... Só se voces quer fazer o "Pub Crawling" nao faza! É chato pra cassete alem de caro, nao adianta é melhor fazer por conta propria


Nice place right in town on the beach. amazing views little more pricey than most hostel but worth it.

The central patio agglomerate a crowd at 🌃 and not everybody is polite enough to make silence


Excellent location, especially if you like to go out at night as it is a short walk to all the best clubs. Great patio area for sitting and enjoying the view of the sea. Friendly staff.


Perfect Hostel. Staff was super nice, meet a lot of great people which was important because i was traveling solo. Location could no be beat, right on the sand.


Best location. You get a discount in the restaurant outside the hostel


The atmosphere of this hostel makes you have no desire to leave, everything is perfect, the location is the best of Buzios, the beds are very comfortable, the breakfast is amazing. Only thing I would recommend is that the bar would be better planned, close 11pm and it's frustrating. Wanted to send a big hug to the night receptionist Juliano, you're the man, always with valuable tips, keeping order and patiently explaining the rules of the hostel. (Who speaks is the fan on the S.C. International)


Booked for 2 nights. Stayed 3. Location was excellent on the beach+centre of town. Great breakfast with amazing view+cool bar. Good caipirinhas. Wifi only worked in reception. Bad smell in our dorm. Remote for air con is at reception and got some grief on arrival asking for it. Overall it's a great hostel but not worth €27 per bed in an 8 bed smelly dorm. Although other hostels are also very expensive in the area.


Amazing hostel with amazing people. A lot of beautiful ladies from all over the world. it felt like we're in heaven 😁 hostel is situated in the middle of the center, everything is so close (shops, restaurants, clubs, bars, bus station, beach). you have an amazing breakfast with view on beach. I enjoyed so much! staff was really friendly, it was very nice that I could always count on their support and useful advices! I really want to come back one day. totally recommend this place ;)


Great hostel, awesome shorefront view, located in the main street.. Close to Reataurants, bar, beach, pier and markets and stores. The Staff are nice and simpathyc! Nice common area, but kitchen need to be improved.. And the fridge is quite messy and confuse. But these are small things, the place in general is great!


Not a hostel-like atmosphere. My friend and I had a great stay. Central location. The breakfast was the best I've had in a hostel in South America. Thanks!
