Dorm room smelled very musty and the bathroom door did not close but we were moved to a private room for the same price the next night when we raised these problems. The shower was not very hot as with most places in Brazil. Convenient hostel on ilhe grande but would probably book somewhere else a bit nicer if there is availability.

The place is really clean and cosy, there are small nice rooms with private toilet in each room, internet is only in the reception but since is an island i think is fine, the stuff is helpfull and friendly, but they don't speak english, the breakfast is really good.

Comfortable rooms, ours didn't have AC, but it was perfectly fine, tho the fan in the room wasn't working. We were allowed to bring the fans outside into the rooms which was nice. It came with a mosquito repellant option as well. Breakfast was good. Bed in living area will consume you and you may stay there forever, but beware of mosquitoes. Wifi was iffy, but normal for an island. People at reception were super friendly and took us to the hospital as well (friend was ill). Good place.

Awful experience. Staying here was so bad that we left after one night (even though we had been pressured into paying at checkin) and spent the rest of our stay at a nice guest house across the road. Vermin everywhere, not a fun hostel atmosphere at all, staff are unfriendly, bathroom is filthy, the room is like a prison cell with no natural light and was like a sauna at night so it was impossible to sleep. To add insult to injury, it is also not particularly cheap. Don't stay here.

Very dirty and small hostel. Staff doesn't speak English. Breakfast was okaY. The room was hot and humid. I wouldnt recommend it you can find better hostels on the island.

The room was very small and a bit dirty. The kitchen was located outside and that resulted in loads of flies plus many mosquito bites. Wifi was very slow.

Nice hostel with very friendly staff. Clean room, with air con. Great location close to everything you need. Wifi wasn't the best, but I don't think that is a reflection so much on this hostel, it's more the island.

This is a hostel not worth staying at, very damp and dark, door to bathroom can not be closed and sometimes the water runs out...There is a funky smell and the wifi don't work for more than a minute at a time. The breakfast is good!

This hostel is beautifully settled in a green garden, it's got a pool table and the breakfast is superb! I don't really know why the atmosphere is pretty much dead and the reviews not so good, because it really would have the potential!

It is a Hotel that they transformed into a hostel so they keep the good thinks as a great breakfast and other hostel services but are lacking things as atmosphere and a friendly staff. The staff was efficient but not friendly in general as it will be in a hotel I guess. They were arguing with each other quite often and the manager was arguing with staff in front of the guests. When the owner was there it was ok as he was friendly and gave us good advices. No atmosphere.

Friendly staff however we were left outside for sometime overnight as they couldn´t hear the doorbell over the TV they were watching. Our private room price jumped from 110 to 440 on a saturday night despite the hostel itself not being full.

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.
