My issue isnt so much that the hostel was removed so far the town (which, beware, it is), but more so that the Hostel doesnt have the facilities to account for this distance. No guest fridge or kitchen, no major common areas, and the hostel compound itself doesnt quite offer the "chilled out" atmosphere it advertises, particularly for a town like Lencois. However, the staff more than compensated for these faults in being one of the friendliest hostel teams I've ever stayed with. Big ups to Cesar


Great time at the Chill Out. Michael & Cesar are real cool. Good chatting to them. A walk from town, but not that far and safe; even late at night. Pousada is close to a trail leading to a great pool for swimming. Michael got me to the bus on time on the back of his bike and organised a great day canoe / waterfall trip with Leons. Would go back if back in Lencois.

The best thing about Pousada Chill Out is its multilingual and incredible helpful owner Michael. He is a character, with amazing stories, seems to know everyone in town, and if you get to spend some time with him, you will get to know a few characters in Lencois also. He goes out of his way to be helpful. The hostel is a little outside town, up a hill, but it is en route to some of the most accessible hikes, so its in the right direction. Looking forward to returning. Obrigado!


Chill Out is a wonderful hostel located right next to the entrances of several Chapada trails and a very short walk away from the city center. We had a transfer from the bus station when we arrived at 5:30am and were allowed to sleep for a bit before having a big, delicious breakfast and heading out for our hike. We also were able to shower after check-out which is great after spending the day hiking & swimming. The staff was very friendly. Lockers in the room would've been nice.
