I was blown away by how stunning and modern this hostel was. It's a nice change from all the backpacking hostels in other cities when staying in a massive city like SP. Location was OK, close enough to metro to go sightseeing or take a taxi to party at vila magalena. They had the most comfortable beds from all the other hostels in all of Brazil. Breakfast was fine. They have a reception/bar/communal space just steps from the kitchen which works well for meeting people.
Do not stay anywhere else in Paraty, you will regret it. People from other hostels came here to chill. This is a true backpackers hostel and it is the best hostel I stayed at in all of Brazil. The owner, Pablo, hosts tours, I went on the waterfall tour and it was amazing. Breakfast was incredible, you get your monies worth from breakfast. Some people say the spaces are crowded, they are just more intimate spaces and you get to know everyone better because of that.
This hostel is at an amazing location. Minutes from everything essential and very safe. Only speak English, no problem, everyone had decent English. Nice beds with enough privacy. The private bathrooms on the first floor were awesome and better than the communal ones on the second floor. Good bar with plenty of drink specials every night. Many places to eat on Augusta (one+ block away). If you have a room on the first floor at night the sound carries through all the rooms.
