We had a great experience there! The location is excellent, 7 minutes walk to the city center, very close to the best beaches (5 min walk) and the bus stop (1 min walk). The owner of the place (Yesha) is a very interesting and nice person, she gave us several tips about which places we should visit! The house is very beautiful, clean, the rooms have air conditioning, TV, towels, everything a backpacker needs! Great place to relax (not a party place). Delicious breakfast. We definitely recommend
Highly recommend Zen-do! This guesthouse is a wonderful place to stay! The house itself ia georgeous and the owner Yiesha is beautiful! She is so accommodating and makes you feel like you're staying at a friends house. Breakfast is deliousios and the rooms and always kept very clean and well maintained. It's also located in a fantastic position only a 10min walk to one of out favourite beaches in Buzios and a short walk to the main village. Would stay here again if we return!
Yesha, the owner, is incredibly a fantastic person. Due to the fact that she lives in the guest house, she cares a lot about it, trying to develop an harmonious environment. There are a few small rooms so guests should not worry about messy travellers all around or noisy groups. Likable garden. Hot shower. Clean room every day. Satisfactory homemade breakfast. People are always invited to recommend things that should be improved.
Excelente lugar! A Zen do Guest House tem um ambiente receptivo e bem tranquilo. Você se sente como se estivesse em casa, a dona da pousada te deixa super a vontade. Eu e mais três amigos fomos na semana santa, chegamos por volta de 13h da tarde e fomos recepcionados pela dona da pousada (Iesha) , seu cachorro e a outra mulher que trabalha na casa. Na parte de trás há uma imensa área com bancos e ávores ótima para relaxar. O café é muito bem feito, contado com frutas, pão, queijo, etc. Os quar
A realy cool place to stay! We had so much fun there. Thanxxxxx Mamy
You'll be treated to first class service and a touch of home at the Zen Do. You can always count on a friendly smile from the owner/operator and a wagging tail of the house dog named Goodee.
Very nice hostel. Very ZEN. We found the situation was the best there is in Buzios. Close to nice beaches, in front of Parking.
Lovely little guest house in a beautiful town. Excellent place to unwind after a busy visit Rio! Staff were very helpful and it's a good location right between the town centre and the beach.
We had an excellent stay at Zen-Do's!! Great value for your money! Super breakfast and the staff is very helpful and nice. Located close to the nicest beaches in Buzios, and the walk to Centro is short and scenic. Can't complain about anything!!
Lovely welcoming homely place to stay! Yesha greeted us with a big kiss on arrival and was very very helpful finding the nicest beaches for our stay and supplying any other additional information. This is not a party place but definitely a place to be laid back and relaxed before the next leg of your journey.
the hostel was under construction while we were there so it wasn\'t that nice to stick around. however, the staff was super-friendly and wonderful and we had a great time there!
Very disappointed. It looks nice in the pictures but actually its an old house with an old lady who attended us badly and wanted to force us to stay there. We still paid her and left the place. She put us in the worst room but we saw a better hostel and cheaper just in front. Only the location is good.
Good place to stay, although there were a lot of mosquito´s on the final night.
A little like staying with an aunt..... but there is something to be said for being looked after after 3 months away from home!!!
Great breakfast. Helpful hostess. Great location for beaches. Would defenitly recommend Zen-Do and would love to stay there again.
Really lovely place in Ossos which is the central area of the 3 Buzios villages with an excellent walking location. 5 mins to the best beaches, 10-15 mins to the nightlife and shops and 5 minutes to the high class restaurants. The owners are great and they offer healing massages and yoga! Plus the breakfasts are delicious! A great private hostel which is perfect for couples...

We had a great time, the guest house is really calm and relaxing, and the location perfect. Thanks Yesha and Victoria.
The hosts are two lovely ladies who make you feel right at home. We were a large group who tended to come home at wee hours of the morning and they did~´t mind us continuing to party there.
Excellent peaceful place to stay with great hosts, within walking distance of the centre and beaches. Not a place for meeting lots of people and parties but we wanted relaxation and that is what we got. Wonderful breakfast. TV and internet access could complete the package.
