I spent three days at this lovely hostel and I can recommend it, especially because the owners are so nice and it felt more like a stay at a friend´s place. It´s not so easy to find so if it´s hot and you have a big backpack it´s maybe better to take a taxi. The beach (10 to 15min. walk) is amazing and much more nicer than the beaches directly in Ubatuba. They also have a very nice and big garden and a bar to relax. So if you would like to spent some relaxed beachdays go there!

This was the most horrible hostel I ever stayed in my life. Everything is dirty and smelly, mattress and linen are old, full of holes, the fans doesn't work, the lockers are really small and don't work, the bathroom is impossible to enter, the kitchen's stuff are old and dirty in a point you can't wash it.

Karen, you are the first to give us a bad review in 2 years. You have every right to complain, but be fair. The fan is working ok, we even put an extra one in the dorm for you. The lockers are pretty much standard size and to work properly you only need a padlock, which we have at the reception. The bathrooms are cleaned every day and we make cleaning rounds after everyone has used. Cheers.


Great chilled hostel
