Nice, spacious wooden panelled room with sea view and fridge. Tiny bathroom. Kitchen and common area available to use but no one really there when we were so quiet. Breakfast really good with lots of choice. Convenient to reach pier, shops and trail to beach. One of the staff spoke English. Room was cleaned daily which was great! Space outside to hang wet clothing. This was one of the better places we stayed in in Brazil!

Overnativa is a 2 minute walk to the beach so great location. Most staff don't speak english so a little hard communicating. Awesome brekkie, can use the kitchen from 5pm-10pm. We didn't have power 2 out of the 3 days, it wasn't their fault and it's no biggy... They brought us lights and candles which was nice.

Mould everywhere, including on the pillows! Roof was leaking. If you came back to the hostel late at night, you were supposed to be buzzed in. However I had to climb the fence on two occasions as the late night staff was too busy listening to music to hear the buzzer. No hot water in our dorm shower. Absolutely zero atmosphere at the hostel.

Really friendly staff and great breakfast. We felt really welcome.

Overall, good enough. Rustic, cozy vibe. Excellent breakfast and Roger was eager to give recommendations about the area (although it wasn't the best and he wasn't there all of the time). Large, fully-equipped kitchen, large common space and washers. Using washers costs extra and not enough sunny places to dry clothes. Wifi only in common areas, not in rooms. A bit out of the way, but it's a small, walkable village. Bathroom could have been cleaner.

The Room was very dirty with a lot of insects and mosquitos.

Like others said already before, most of the people who work there are not very friendly and helpful. Most of them dont speak english. Everything else is ok.

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.

Stayed here as I made my way up to Rio for Carnival 2014. It was Alastair minute stop so options on hostel limited. Stayed in 4 room mixed dorm. Shower not good, Xmas paper as a window was strange.

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
