This is the worst hostel i have stayed in while travelling south america. The staff are extremely rude and unfriendly, random people walk through the hostel all day long, the kitchen is barely equipped with the basic necessities and there is no social atmosphere.

sure that stayed right place


This is cheap, with an okay breakfast and internet. Location is amazing! Staff are poor as you don't really know who works there.


Good price, good breakfast but the cleanliness was not the best


The cheapest option in Ilha Grande, the hostel is very well located, very clean and with a good wifi! Not to mention the huge breakfast...However the common area is a bit small and the kitchen as well but still I guess you cant find a better option for such a cheap price! I really recommend it!


very nice hostel, good atmosphere and the best location in town. no alcoholic beverages allowed from outside which is a problem due to the fact that they sell any in the hostel. the kitchen is really crampy and not a lot of open space to hang around.


Nice location. A bit expensive though.

dear guest, you requested a reservation at a special day, and it was only one night, this the reason price,


Loved our stay here! Hostel was quaint, rustic, and we felt right at home. PROS: Good (sugary) breakfast; good dorms; generally good wifi in common area; good common area; staff were accommodating to us (although a couple of others had issues due to the high season. CONS: Our door was broken on our dorm, meaning security wasn´t amazing. Mosquitos were bad some nights too, obviously not their fault but a screen door would make a huge difference! Will stay here again :)


Fantastic location right near the pier and waterfront. Was a bit difficult at time to determine who actually worked there and they didn't speak much English. Only real issue was that for a day half the hostel lost water which was not communicated to us.


Had a great stay here and would fully recommend. The only downfall maybe is that tehre wasn't really anyone on reception all the time so people could walk in. Amazing breakfast, bed changed each day - which we were grateful of as some reviews suggest dirty sheets but we didn't find this at all. Fully recommend.


Nice, quite affordable hostel. Great breakfast!


Excellent location!! Good breakfast! On the other hand, the sheets from all the beds were dirty, so as the bathroom, the staff were pretty rude, and we had problems because they assingned the same bed for more than 1 person.

sorry, you are not being fair with your comment, a personal comment


Nice enough. had a nice vibe to it but the staff weren't very cluey. I´m lucky i speak portuguese cause they couldnt speak anything else. nice atmosphere and has a cool movie room. no lockers big enough for a backpack and doors are always open... so I chained up my stuff. don´t think youll get much better for the price tho on ilha grande


great breakfast!!!


I have stayed in many hostels but this Hostel has by far the unfriendliest staff. You never see them smile or say hello. On two nights there was no staff, the door is always open and you can't lock the dorm rooms. So it would have been easy for anyone to walk in. The breakfast is amazing but if you get there after 8:30 am, barely anything gets filled up. Other than that the hostel is close to the pier, the supermarket and the beds are comfy.
