Nice chilled hostel, no complaints at all.


Thank you to Leonardo for taking us Surfing at Lopez Mendes beach, and to Soqui and the other lovely staff for looking after us during our stay. Cats, hammocks and the sound of rain hitting the jungle palms.....bliss!

This is a strange one. We enjoyed our stay at the hostel however the building infrastructure isn't to the best standard. My bed for example had nails sticking out next to it. The breakfast is ok although very basic compared to others we've had. The staff are very nice although it is clear that the hostel is just starting up so maybe there's room for improvement moving forward. Overall though a nice, cheaper alternative during your stay in Ilha Grande :)


Nice hostel, with friendly and helpfull staff! A bit hard to find, but plenty of helpfull people to show the way. Overall Nice hostel with good atmosphere. The beds are great btw!


Some of the bed linen hadn't been changed when we arrived and one sheet was very dirty. The dorms are of low quality, specially for the price charged. The staff was helpful and very friendly.


I would definetly recommended staying in this hostel. It is very clean, breakfast is good, in walking distance to the main area. The atmosphere is so nice at this hostel, very chilled with hamocks! The staff are very nice and helpful, we really enjoyed our stay here!


Nice little hostel 5 minutes from town, decent size dorms, kitchen and common areas, staff were helpful and we extended our stay. Didn't book any trips through the hostel but heard they were good. Good value for money on ilha grande. Decent breakfast too.


This place has nothing to do with surfing or giving you any help to organise a surf or tell you where us best. it is relatively cheap but into the back of the small town so uts still 5mins walk to beach because thats the size if town. beds were comfy with cutains around but they refused to give me my key deposit back cause they forgot to write it down even though I had the key.


After 4 months of travelling, Surf Hostel is still one of the best hostels we've ever stayed at. The staff were lovely and really helpful, the chilling area was amazing and the kitchen was great. The beds were comfy and the showers were hot (not that you need a hot shower). Cute cats around too. Would really recommend!!


Nice little hostel in Abraao, some nice hammocks, good value. I did not think however that the staff were overly enthusiastic about surfing LOL The place is quite hard to find on initial arrival
