The place is very close to the beach and to the taxi and bus station. They have a bar where they make crazy parties. The owners are very kind and create for their guest a very good atmosphere. They make you to fall in love with Buzios.

Such an awesome hostel! As soon as I walked in, the staff made me feel right at home and did everything they could to assist me. I was there for 3 nights. One night, they through a birthday party, and one night they had a bbq. Both of which were awesome. The hostel has a very chill atmosphere with an outside bar, pool, slack line, a bunch of hammocks/beanbags, nice tv area, etc. One block away is a van that can take you to the city center in 10mins and for just 2.50 reals.

Pleasure having you here buddy!


Given the reviews and information online about a welcome drink, pool parties and fun bar and atmosphere, I was shocked to be virtually the only person staying mid March. Recommend they close down for these quiet March weeks as really disappointed and does not live up to the hype. Nothing else around to do as a quiet beach, no near restaurants or bars. I was upgraded to private room as no one else there, that was appreciated. Staff were lovely and did what they could. Breakfast terrible though!

This review is based only on the lack of parties. The low season starts after Carnaval and this year it was at the beginning of March so of course the Hostel was empty, the City was empty. But you were never the only guest here. Based on your review the entire city should close. The location is very good, if you asked you could go to good restaurants and bars. Geriba is the most famous beach in the City. The lack of parties could have been solved with our offer of free entrance for the clubs
