If you're looking for a good location in ilha grande this is the best place to stay. The breakfast was yummy as well and the staff were really friendly. It's a small hostel but makes meeting people more fun and easy. Definitely not one to miss!!


First the location of the hostel is really nice, it´s just one minute from where the boat arrives, but it´s an island you cannot really get a bad location. Unfortunately we didn't enjoy our time in the hostel at all, the host is very unfriendly and super annoyed. The hostel itself is tiny, just one room with 11 beds and the air-condition is not working properly which made it impossible for us to sleep. I unfortunately have to say the only good thing about this place is the location and the wifi.


Das Hostel ist billig und man weiß auch warum. Zwar liegt es direkt am Main pier, ist jedoch ziemlich dreckig. Im Bad ist sogar eine Kackerlake von der Decke gefallen und danach durch das Zimmer gekrabbelt. Die Badezimmer waren dreckig, der Owner lebt oben drüber und geht immer durch den Schlafsaal, mit einem unfreundlichen Gesichtsausdruck. Das Mädel vom Staff war nett jedoch unerfahren da sie neu war. Das Frühstück war reichhaltig und gut, jedoch steht vieles schon lange und schmeckte alt.


Muito recomendado, a estadia muito boa junto com a recepção e localização ! Parabéns para hostel e agradeço a estadia .


best breakfast during my trip! but it's annoying that the room doesn't have any doors and everyone (owner, friends of him, cat and dog) are always walking across the room no matter what you are doing


This was an ok hostel, the owner had to go through the dorm to his room which was strange. He also didn't speak any English. Good breakfast and good location.


Very chilled. Only issue is that I was never sure who worked there or not. Breakfasts were very decent!


I think that this hostel is really more like a pousada than a hostel. For instance the breakfast is really great but is is better to wake up early to enjoy it well-settled after it is a bit a mess since the place is a bit squeezy. There are not a special atmosphere to make buddies for a night and laught but again it seems more a pousada. But even as a pousada I do think there re rooms for improvement in the facilities and the bed. Make sure to get rid of any dusty covers.


Es una completa estafa! Reservé pensando que me encontraría con otro lugar, resulta que era otra la dirección, y un lugar sucio, pequeño, nada se Parecía a las fotos. Me sentí completamente estafada.

desculpa paola , pela sua estadia frustada , era tao simples nos comunicar de suas frustaçoes , pois teriamos oferecido um de nossos hostel dentro de suas expectativas


This small hostel feels like a home away from home. The owner lives upstairs and is more than happy to welcome you into his home. He has lots of local friends for you to chat with that really makes it a comfortable place to be. The young lady that prepares breakfast and cleans speaks English a little better than the owner of you need help with anything. The mold on the cieling


Really nice, small hostel with a great owner. Very central and incredibly easy to get to - though it does get quite quiet at times. Would definitely stay again.


Tenia una reserva para el studio Beach Hostel pero como no habia lugar nos mandaron a otro a la vueta abrao hostel (algo asi, no recuerdo como se escibe), que fue excelente. Super bien ubicado, la gente amable y atenta. Del Studio Beach Hostel tengo que agradecer a la señora que nos atendio cuando llegamos que me guardo mi mochila que me la olvide alli y al dueño que me ayudo a buscar. Muuy buenas personas, amables y atentos a lo que necesites por mas que no estes en ese hostel. GRACIAAS!!!
