the staff are very helpful and even stored my belongings for a couple of days while I hiked part of the island. The curtains on the beds is a nice little touch of privacy in such large rooms.

I really like this hostel but we had no breakfast since it was a low season (beginning of June).

I spend a really good weekend, the hostel was plenty of young travellers, the atmosphere was great, people from the reception are really nice, they are always offering help ang giving advices for the treks or any kind of tour. They let us organise a BBQ in the hostel. I recommend (especially for the kindness of the staff on reception) !

Great hostel to stay at and from there explore the island. The hostel is on the outskirt of the small town. There is a very relaxed vibe, couches, and hammocks where your can relax add to this feeling. The beds are exceptional comfortable; proper matrasses! And the breakfast contains all to start of your day. Staff is friendly, helpfull and cleaned two times a day when i was there. I would definitly recommend staying here.

Cats all over the place (so be careful if you're allergic) and quite far uphill and not many lights on the road at night. Otherwise nice place, helpful host, good breakfast. Kitchen offers basic equipment if you want to cook for yourself, Internet is fast and reliable.

The hostel is far from the beach or the main street compared to other hostels in the island, and the access is not the best if you're carrying a suitcase. There's no warm water in the shower. Leonardo, the owner, and his friends, are really creepy. If you book through any agency, like hostel world, Leonardo will send you an email asking for your credit card info to pay half of the prize on the reservation... I wouldn't repeat my stay at that hostel, not even for free.

Solo female traveller that stayed three nights. Positives: was quiet so got to know the others staying, clean, small lockers in room, curtains around bed, quiet, owner/manager friendly and we all went out one night. Negatives: rustic, had to walk downstairs for toilet, no soap for hand washing, a bit further back from the main area (not necessarily negative but I was followed one night and asked someone to walk me because it was quiet and dark)

Really lovely staff, sadly though the property is too far away from the beach when compared to other places and also found it to be quite expensive for what it was . Very quiet place, stay here if you are looking to relax for a few days

Quite far away from the beach. Although not a long walk, it's a little bit into the jungle which is a very damp and humid environment. The beds are very good have curtains. Plenty on charge points in dorms. Could be run better if the owner was around more. Decent value for Ilha Grande but not great place. Breakfast had ants crawling on it on more than one occasion. Could have been a bit cleaner over all.

The room smelled damp, the room was not Secure. 2 staff members were lovely, one not helpful or friendly. Path to hostel, slippy and dangerous when wet and carrying rucksacks.
