Excellent hostel with everything you need! Hostel is especially important in a place like Bonito because it's your main point of contact for finding out about all the tours in Bonito and to the Pantanal. Papaya is especially great for this, Jennifer is fantastically organised and knowledgable and will give you honest non-biased advise! Lots of the main attractions were full up when we arrived, but she was great and made sure we had activities arranged to suit us!
Great hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Jen (one of the owners) is the shining star of this hostel. She helped me organise my day trip for snorkeling and my 4 day trip into the Pantanal. Being from the UK she spoke perfect English and Portuguese which was a tremendous help in such a small town. Hostel was nice and chilled with decent kitchen. Being located 5mins walk from a huge supermarket was nice too. Also had good wifi but didn't reach all rooms.
A quiet but new and clean hostel. Good beds, exceptional staff (Jenny) and a very chilled and relaxing vibe. Not a party hostel, but you don't go to Bonito to party =]
Place was very clean, quiet and tidy. Staff were very helpful in providing advice on the next leg of our trip getting to Iguazu Falls. This place is VERY close to the bus station.
Great hostel! Clean, 5 minutes from the central bus station, supermarket and the main road of town. They will help you arrange all of your tours. Delicious breakfast. Only negative point is that not all of the staff speak English.
Amazing hostel, with everything you need. A friendly staff, always willing to help. Good breakfast. Rooms are large with airco and everything gets cleaned every day, even the swimming pool! They also have hammocks and a pool table, which is nice. Fast internet. If you go to Bonito, this is the place to be, value for money is excellent!
We had a great time at the hostel, good atmosphere, cleanliness and helpful host and staff!

Great atmosphere and vibes at this hostel!
Chilled vibe and met lots of people. Mornings are busy with everyone off to do activities. Owners are friendly and incredibly helpful organising everything. Breakfast included, drinks can be purchased, bikes rented. The common room had a TV with DVD's but no DVD player. A bunch of us wanted to watch something one night, but the TV also had no USB port. The private rooms are hotel quality- super clean & comfortable. A top spot for your Bonito stay!
Well set up. room nice and clean. Staff super helpful, particularly Jenny with any enquiry and organising transport for us we can't thank her enough

Close to supermarket and three blocks from the main road. Jennifer is very helpful and they have a nice are for relaxing and cocking your own food. Loved it! /sweden
This was a very good hostel. Clean pool. Good location. Great breakfast (buns, brown bread, ham, cheese, fresh fruit, several types of cake, real coffee). Great air con in the dorms starting nice and early at 7 pm. Good cooking facilities. Fan in the tv room. 2 blocks from supermarket. My only suggestion would be to add a fan into the kitchen/pool table area.
