Really nice stay, not to loud but still not too far away from the city center and the beach! Friendly staff!


It was a lovely place to stay, the staff were great, it's a really chilled out hostel. The beds are comfy, the breakfast is good, warm showers. I would recommend you take a mosquito net as there are lots of them, but they're sort of inescapable on Ilha Grande.

Really liked this hostel! Very nice atmosphere. During the day chill and at night everyone comes together downstairs have a drink. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Would prefer real doors with normal lock with key, now it are separate locks with code. The village is very small so everything is closeby. Loved my stay here!


The were really great and helpful. Even with a language barrier they tried to help us booking buses and drew us maps for out next destination. Great home feeling and chill out areas. Thanks for a lovely stay!


This was a pretty hip hostel a short walk from the main village. I loved the hammocks in the common area, they were so comfortable!! The breakfast was good and the rooms were reasonably clean. It got cold at night so make sure you ask for a blanket.


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 :)
