The Hostel is great. Staff is very friendly, recomende to me the best places to visit. The breakfast has everything!! Room, bath and the hostel is very clean. It is right in front of a beatifull beach and there are a few bars just there.
Just dirty and run down compared to other places I stayed, even at the same price point in the same part of the country.

The staff here were awesome. Unfortunately it rained the whole time I was in Paraty but the staff put on movies, got pizza, and went the extra mile. I was even given a better bed for free. Breakfasts are awesome also.
Nice enough hostel right on the beach. No air con in the room so had to sleep with the door wide open. Bathroom wasn't too clean either.. Location was the best part
Great hostel, busy and lots of atmosphere! Had a really nice all you can eat bbq when we were there, right next to the beach, lovely staff, hammocks, ps2, good kitchen!
The Paraty Beach Hostel has super friendly and helpful staff and a lively and social atmosphere. Can eat your breakfast right on the beach! Close walk to the old town centre and buses, where you can get anywhere. Great vibe, especially for a solo traveller looking to meet people.
Good location, very helpful staff. Not much room in the dorms and not enough bathrooms
An incredible hostel that is 5 minutes from the centre of town and 5 seconds from the beach. The staff were informative and amazing, making it feel like home. I booked 2 nights but ended up staying 8 days. Highly recommended spot and a great way to end my 6 months of travel. Thanks for the great hospitality.

A great hostel right on the beach. The staff are friendly and make you feel right at home. The hostel is in a great location for the town centre. The 6 bed dorm was great with a large ensuite. I will be back!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. Particularly Charlie.
Nice location on the beach. Dorm is large, beds are comfy, individual mosquito nets. No fans in the dorm room. Common areas are nice, good included breakfast. Owner is friendly and helpful. Staff are otherwise aloof. There was construction during my stay (Oct 13.) Hostel was super empty when I was there, even over a weekend. No saturday BBQ due to lack of guests. Had a late bus and was told I was not allowed to hang around or use facilities which I found unusual for such a "laidback" place.
We thought it was the best location on a beach compared to other hostels nearby (not so loud). Friendly staff, good breakfast which you can enjoy with a view of the ocean. When we were leaving they started some renovations to improve the place (check in beforehand whether it has been finished).
Really relaxing hostel with a great breakfast on the beach. More than bread and jam!!! People friendly and location close to the old town. Would have liked to stay longer.
Amazing location, delicious breakfast on the beach with lots of fresh fruit and toasted sandwich facilities! The staff are great in particular Gus the owner who will do anything for you and created a really chilled out, relaxing atmosphere. Planned to stay a few days and ended up staying 2 weeks! Thanks Gus!
Amazing Hostel! Great breakfast and location, and Gus the owner is an awesome guy. Can't wait to come back!
Perfect place to relax, meet great people and enjoy Paraty. We were meant to stay one night booked for 2 weeks! The staff are bursting with information about Paraty and constantly happy to help with anything. Clean rooms amazing brekky spread- always a plus. Owner Gus is one of the friendliest people ive met on my trip, super kind and unbelievably generous, really cool guy. Looking forward to coming back in a few years time! Stay here if you come to Paraty!
One of the best stays I ever had! The staff is very service minded and well intentioned, the location is great and the boat trip and the barbecue were awesome bonuses. In the morning, a various breakfast that you can have on the beach is a very good way to start the day. Coming back whenever I get the chance!!!

Staff were friendly on arrival. Were told the breakfast was a wide selection of food including avocado. But it was just below average hostel breakfast with bread that was old and going stale.Shower full of sand, rooms didn't get cleaned - toilet bin only emptied once during 48+hours it was used. Rooms didn't lock & only small lockers available. Wifi very slow and not throughout entire hostel. builders on site.the boat trip was terrible value for money.leftover breakfast as the lunch!
Great location on the beach. Hostel was a bit quiet as we were staying in low season. Good kitchen facilities and lounge area. Bathroom needs cleaning a bit more frequently. Comfy beds.
