Yolo was a really nice hostel, but the atmosphere wasn't quite there. The breakfast was really good, the beds comfy and the air con was working fine. Would probably recommend.


YOLO has the makings of a perfect hostel yet the staff just don't really seem to care. It has a great set up, good vibes and a good breakfast but the heavy rock music from 5PM onwards ? All the guests were complaining and management simply denied any requests for a change in tune. Also our room was stuffy and hot and smelt like urine and my pillow smelt sweaty. I expected more if I'm honest.

Hey Nir. The bar has what people usually wants, unfortunately people were enjoying the day more than the night at the period... We all went hiking yesterday. But next time we will have more parties. Cheers man, enjoy Rio.


The staff was very nice and helpful and the surroundings were beautiful, clean, calm and cosy. The room was nice and got cleaned every day. We had lots of fun in the evening it was a great place to stay :)

Hey John, nice to hear from you. We had a great time, didn't we. The LEGEND, hahaha. Man the doors are always open for you. See you around. Cheers mate


It is a nice house and the owners care about your well being. It lacks a bit of professionalism regarding to the staff as there are many volunteers and sometimes they depend a lot on the owner's decision. It is 6 min walking to Geriba Beach which is nice. Breakfast is simple and the owners kindness make up for the rest. It has a relaxing atmosphere and plenty of people in their 20s.


I loved my stay at Yolo.. i booked five nights but could have easily stayed longer. The staff is very nice. The atmosphere is great with a chill vibe but also know how to party at night. it is a very short walk to Geriba beach, which is nice and is also right beside the shuttle bus line to take you anywhere you want to go. Would not stay anywhere else in Buzios, these guys treat you like family.

Hey Chase. Glad to read that. Would be great if all guests were cool as you. YOLO is your beach house. Cheers


Thanks to Miguel and Gabriel, their hostel (more a house than a hostel with a huge garden bbq and swimming pool...) is really nice and cozy, located close to 2 of the main beaches in Buzios, really safe place and "feeling at home" atmosfera! maybe they should take care more about mosquitoes that are everywhere in the area.. but i think it's pretty difficult with such a huge garden!


Great staff, great breakfast, great outdoor area! Location couldn't be better, it's very close to Geribá beach, supermarkets, banks, transportation, restaurants, etc. Great value for the money.


First time I rate 100% an hostel. Nothing more to say.


Great hostel to have fun and chill out. The stuff is awesome Real good value for the money.


Great staff! Miguel and Gabriel did their best to welcome you to the hostel, tell you about everything you could do in Buzios and even take you to parties. The hostel is a short way by car to the centrum, but close to two of Buzios nicest beaches. Would definitely recommend the hostel to anyone.
