Nice Place. Close to the bus station, central and supermarket. In bonito speaks just some people English, I think the English speaking hostel staff could gibe more informations about the tours.

Muito obrigada!


Nice place, good value for money. Not too far from the city, generally safe. However a smell of sewerage on my bathroom was annoying.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your feedback. I apologise for the smell in your room, unfortunately we had a problem with a blockage due to toilet paper being flushed down the toilet in that room. We have now had the pipes professionally cleaned and the problem has been resolved. I hope the smell did not cause you too much discomfort during your stay.


A relatively new hostel in beautiful Bonito. Jenny, the owner has made a great place to stay. Very near the bus stop and only 3 blocks from town. As with all things in Bonito the price is slightly high, but for what you get it's worth it. Nice outdoor cooking area, small pool, perfect for cooling off on those very hot days, secure lockers and a great atmosphere with BBQ evenings. Very clean and good information on what to do in the area. Great place to stay!

Thank you very much!


Really enjoyed our stay at papaya, carlos and jenny are very nice hosts. Great breakfast, pool was nice to dip when day was its hottest. Cool kitchen and self laundry facilities. The only small details needed in a mixed dorm was a soap in the bathroom along with a towel hook. Would deffo recomend !! :)
