On the first night the bed I slept in was itchy. I'm not sure if it was the bed or the Mosquitos but i couldn't sleep until 2am. In the dorm the fan and air conditioning didn't work. Moreover, there was a crack in the window so no way to control the temperature or stop the Mosquitos biting you. However, the breakfast was good, and you get a wide variety of items to choose from. You get grenola and oats etc, alongside fruit, cake (savoury and sweet), as well as bread with ham and cheese

The Hostel was beautiful, but our door extended the framework, so we couldn't close it :)

Great value, great breakfast. Only downfall is you can only use the kitchen between 5pm-10pm and very limited supplies/space.

Lovely and clean hostel. Nice location but Ilha Grande is so small everywhere has a good location. Staff sometimes unfriendly and tried to overcharge us but would recommend and was a good stay

Lockers were provided but outside of the dorms which was quite inconvenient, also our door didn't close let alone lock. The staff were friendly however, and in particular one man was very helpful.

The staff didnt aswer emails too fast... it was like two days before going to the place from europe that i got a confirmation... and the staff seemed a little bit lazy to help u with anything. Besides, a lot of times the people were not on the door of the place, so it seemed lke anyone could walk in

The last three days the water at the shower was cold!!! We were told that it was a problem existing in the whole island, and that wasn't true!

The breakfast is good and the staff is receptive, but was really hard get someone in the reception of hostel to do the check-in/check-out. There are security cameras, but you have to drop and pick up the room keys on the board by yourself. Some things are very old and it needs to be renewed, like the stair to the suites on the second floor.

Excellent place! Really close to everything, clean, great breakfast (lots of things) but the most important thing of all: excellent staff! Thanks for a perfect stay Marcio and Natalia!

The room was very hot, the beds were horrible and the shower had no hot water. Besides that, the staff was not very helpful, it was almost impossible to contact them by phone and they don't reply e-mails! The breakfast was only regular for brazilian standards. The location is ok, it's near everything, but the village is small any way. I definitely do not recommend this hostel. There are much better options in the island for the same price.

We had a 3 bed room with private bathroom next to the lobby. The bathroom was really dirty, please look at the shelf there! The room has no real window and therefore hardly any fresh air can come in. It is loud as people sit right outside. So, considering all this, the price is much too high!

"Customer Service" is VERY bad. The hostel manager(s) is rude most of the time. Poor WIFI service. The beds are not very dangerous (it sways) to sleep in specially if your in a bunk bed.

Friendly staff but unfortunately the hostel is not very well maintained (they could do much better). On high session is overpriced for the quality of the rooms. Garden is abandoned not taken care of. A bit disappointed with the place. Much better service in other hostels&pousadas on the island.

We stayed in a very expensive small private room, which was never cleaned as it should, relation quality/price is really bad , but we could not move because it was high season . Staff is completely unprofesional , Mr Marcio at the recepcion is a violent man ,shouting the whole time . I had to go to the police to tell them about the way this man treats travellers ,discriminating Latinamerican people . Terrible, scaring place. The worst place I ever been Scaring place to stay

The staff team was amazing...super friendly and very helpful. We spent Christmas eve & Christmas at this hostel and really appreciated the comfortable family-like atmosphere. The special Christmas dinner was delicious & had many vegetarian options...and the breakfasts were great with so many options. Thanks for a lovely stay. :)

Nice clean hostel. The Kitchen was a bit awkward to use as meals were cooked by staff each evening, so getting a spot in the kitchen was difficult. Staff very nice. Hostel a bit quiet for meeting people unfortunately although there is a good area for socialising with a pool table and drinks available.
