The hostel set up was great with lots of room to chill out by the pool, with hammocks etc. Location was pretty good as it's in walking distance to a few beaches and a short bus ride to Centro. The vibe was very chill, out of the 4 nights we were there none of the guests went out to party. HOWEVER, the staff would frequently have very loud parties in the common area late at night, oblivious to the sleeping guests. Staff also wasn't helpful with any questions we asked

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.

Really good breakfast here and the pool is lovely. It seems a bit disorganised - when we checked out they tried to charge us again for the rooms despite paying on arrival. The owners were around but didn't socialise or really chat to all the guests, there was one guy (Tiago? Maybe spelt wrong) who was the friendliest and most helpful. Overall we liked the place mainly due to the pool and outside chilling areas.

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.

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.

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.

decent hostel in a nice location near to the beach. Really good breakfast.Was pretty quiet when we were there, and even with this one bathroom inside wasn't really enough.Overall good though,however big mosquito problem because of dried up lake!

Owner Comment (Hide)
we have one bathroom inside and one outside which is very close to the dorms and only 2 rooms share those rooms, the other rooms have its own bathroom so that is not a problem at all. Glad you loved the breakfast we like to make it as special as it can be. You are right about hte mosquitos but they lake is filled again so the mosquito problem is solved. Cheers and we are waiting you again soon

YOLO hostel is a very unique and special experience. The hostel itself is very chilled out and there is a great atmosphere. The big yard with hammocks, pool, outside kitchen and the outside bar is a great place to dive into a relaxed but still totally fun life at YOLOs. It is very easy to feel home here! Being very close to one of the beautiful beaches of Buzios the location is great. The owners are really cool and you can tell how passionate they are about making your stay special.

My friend and I planned to stay two days and ended up staying two and a half weeks here! The guys running the hostel are really lovely and its feels more like a home than a hostel. The hostel is so pretty with a swimming pool and hammocks and a great breakfast. Thanks for a great time Miguel and Gabriell!
