Probably the worst hostel I stayed at during 4 months travelling South America. No bar, no Internet access, cold showers, 2 lockers for 11 people, swimming pool was lurid green, no airport transfers, no cafe, no games room, no city maps. No one on reception at 5pm when we arrived, so I highly doubt there would be 24 hour security. No cleaning appeared to be done, bathrooms and dorm was filthy, no toilet paper.
It is a simple hostel, have all you need and is located in a calm and nice area, 10 minutes walk to the nearest beach. But the kitchen was small and no good opportunities to cook more then 2 pers at the same time, the dorm wasnt cozy, hot and full with mosquitos, the only bathroom for all the people in the dorm had no lock and no water. The breakfast was very poor, the pool was green... but in average an OK hostel but with no soul. Changes hostel after two nights.
Very cheap hostel in Buzios. Staff were really friendly and very helpful, it's less than 5 minutes walk to Geriba beach and even closer to the nearest supermarket. Unfortunately, the bathroom was really dirty, and there was only one for the house so there was always a wait. The pool didn't look very clean either.
I thought this hostel major positive point was the staff as the owner was a laid-back and fun to chat to! Also the Hellers were very helpful with our cooking and helping us learn our Spanish, which I think is a great quality. The location is not far from supermarket and ten minute walk to a beautiful beach! It is far fromthe centre but in buzios this isn't an issue! High ratings for this hostel
It's a really nice place with a good staff and atmosphere, and the price is the best. High recommended!

The staff was friendly. The place was clean. I stayed there right after Christmas and it was very expensive. It was the most I've ever paid for a hostel but the hostel was average. Not bad, not great. There was a relaxed feel, not a party hostel by any stretch of the imagination. It was in a good location so you could party then come back to a quiet hostel and sleep.
