This hostel is great and I recommend you stay here. The staff were fantastic, spoke English fluently and did everything they could to make our stay great. They helped us book our activities and even helped us plan our onward travel and accommodation. There are a few things that would help to improve the hostel, but they are aware of this and working hard to make the changes. For example, they were building lockers whilst we were there. Being able to pay by credit card was useful.

We stayed at Sao Jorge for 3 nights and had a really good time! The staff is very helpfull and friendly! They booked tours for us and listened to what we had to say. The outdoor kitchen was not that clean, but this had nothing to do with the hostel, just the travellers living there. The shower were not that great, I have to say. There was a really bad smell from the bathroom and you kind of got a electricshock from touching the shower knob, but again, it is really cheap and I would recommend it!

Staff are very knowledgable and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and help you with anything and everything from trips, transfers, to SIM card top up and card readers! Many speak excellent English so never had any problems. The kitchen facilities were good with big supermarket close by and amazing breakfast. Great laptops for use and good wifi. Very good aircon, and private bathroom for dorm of 4. No lockers but the place feels so secure it's not a problem. Highly recommend this place

Weird, unpleasant small as you walk through to the dorm area. Great facilities for organising tours.

The Pousada is a very nice option for to stay in Bonito a few days or a week. The staff is very friendly and speaks portugues, spanish and english. They can book you tours to the sightseeings, the only negative thing here is that the transport is not included, so the tours are very expensive. But the staff helps to find a group that the transport will be cheaper.

unfortunately no lockers in the rooms and room and hostel doors were left open. Located near the bus terminal and on the main street. The rooms were clean and air con was great. The breakfast was amazing, yummy cakes and fresh fruit! The main problem was with the staff - they booked us on tours and got a permit with our names on it before even asking if we wanted to go or having checked about prices. Really cheeky!They did sort everything out and the tour ended up being great but we felt forced.

Definitely valued for money since the hostel it's located in the center, and everything is in reachable distance by walking. The hostel also provides bike renting, car renting and pick-up taxi service so it makes traveling to see those natural sites more convenient. And the host Felipe and Victor they are both very helpful, open minded and multilingual.

Good and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend Pousada São Jorge, but I would criticise the absence of lockers in my dormitory, the reason why i gave a low evaluation in the criterium security.

We would definitely recommend pousada Sao Jorge. Very warm welcome, nice staff and everybody is very helpfull. The rooms are clean and airconditioned, and they have watermelon for breakfast :-). Just prepare the three following questions before you arrrive: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? ;-)

There is a nice shower, but the room is very narrow. The breakfast is great and the staff is very helpful!

Hostel needs deep refurbishment - some is already ongoing. Manager is friendly speaks several languages and willing to help. He gave good advice about outings However hostel craves for extra staff. He has a lot on his plate and has difficulty to always follow thru with service Dorms were overbooked: we were "upgraded" to room not cleaned, bin full, linen not changed, wet towels and toilet not flushed Overall if everything works as planned this should be a good budget place after refurbishment

Has recently been taken over. Was ok for one night. The only main issue i had was the fact that i was bitten alot! Not sure whether by mosquitos or bed bugs but the bites were huge and another girl had the same problem.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi! I am very sorry to tell you that, but we NEVER had this problem here. It was mosquitos bites, and it was not here at all. Please, you should watch out what you write and have more attention, becase if you write what you are not sure about, you might harm the company and people because of that. Thanks!

There's no good chill out area in the hostel, other than on the street out the front which was a shame. The breakfast was great. The staff were friendly and pretty helpful but kind of scattered, had to ask things a few times before getting a reply or help. The lock on my dorm didn't work and the front desk if often unattended so anyone could walk in.
