This is a great hostel. One of the best I have ever stayed in. The staff are amazing. The facilities are great. Location is very good depending on what you are looking for: if you want to be near Rio's nightlife and the "hustle and bustle" then this place is perfect. The beach (copa/Ipanema) is easily accessed by the metro. Would highly recommend this facility.
Great location if you want to be near the historic part of Salvador. The nearest beach is 20min away by bus. Cabs are also quite cheap especially if you split them. Amazing breakfast. Free drinks during happy hour, which is a great way to socialize with other travelers. I had a great time there.
Pros: Location. Good internet. Nice kitchen with garden. Amazing family that owns/runs the hostel and wonderful staff. Very helpful: they tried very hard to help me maximize my time there. Cons: while the rooms were very clean, the bathrooms could use some more attention every now and then.
Location is perfect for a night or two to go see the falls. Very close to bus station and a massive supermarket.
Amazing breakfast. Very friendly atmosphere: great place to meet other people. Very reasonable laundry service. Overall a great experience.
For the price this place is great. It is quite basic but that is all you need when staying on Ilha Grande. The owner is amazing. She will take care of you as if you were family. I felt as if i was living with a local family as opposed to staying in a hostel. The hostel is roughly a 5 min walk from the beach. Breakfast is great for the price.
Amazing staff. Very friendly and helpful. The entire hostel is cleaned at least once a day. Very good place to meet other travelers. Location is unbeatable: 5 min walk to copacabanna beach and only 10-15 to ipanema.
