Studio Beach Hostel, Ilha Grande, Brazil

24th Mar 2014

The cheapest option in Ilha Grande, the hostel is very well located, very clean and with a good wifi! Not to mention the huge breakfast...However the common area is a bit small and the kitchen as well but still I guess you cant find a better option for such a cheap price! I really recommend it!

A good location just nearby the bus station and the historic center of Paraty. The breakfast is amazing (best breakfast ever), however wifi is not working well and the room wasn't clean.

One of the best hostels in south america. Everything is reunited in this hostel: perfect location right on the beach, huge breakfast, lot of amenities (they rent for free surfboards, snorkelling equipment...), staff is helpful and the everyday diners are amazing! An excellent hostel!

A good hostel in santa teresa, breakfast ok, rooms were clean but A/C wasn't working well in the rooms and only one bathroom so can get crowded! But location and staff are nice

Hello, thans for your review. We were doing the annual revision on the A/Cs, and the last to be done was exactly the one in your room. We apologize for that. But abou the bathrooms, Your review is not the first one to "complain" about that. In fact, we have 4 bathrooms in the hostel. 3 with toilet and shower and one with toilet only and another with shower only. I guess it is a staff mistake not to let you know about that, Cheers :)

The best hostel option in Manaus! This brand new hostel is a perfection: excellent location, modern design, spotless, excellent breakfast. Not forgetting the 3 owners that all speak a perfect english (very rare in Brasil), one speaks french as well, are super friendly and extremely helpful. Definitely an excellent value for money!

A basic hostel but you can't expect much for such a low price. Everything was clean but the room was very hot and lot of mosquitoes. Staff speaks only portuguese but was helpful enough to book us in advance a transfer to jericoacoara.

The best thing about the hostel is its location right in front of the bus terminal (really convenient)! Rooms were clean and with a good A/C, breakfast good, the shower was pretty weak and swimming pool not super clean. But globally a good option in puerto iguacu.

The hostel is in a nice location with a beautiful on the scenery around. However we were supposed to get a 10% discount as we stayed in the same hostel in Buenos aires but at the end the staff refused to do the discount because we made the booking on hostelworld :( Staff was except that pretty helpful as theybooked for us different bus tickets to save us time.

Everything is clean and comfy, many bathrooms, good wifi. We had a nice stay before and after a long hike in torres del paine. An excellent hostel! One thing missing is breakfast...

Hostel was ok with a helpful staff, a solid (but basic) breakfast, a good wifi. However dorms were pretty small and gets messy, kitchen and dining area were small as well and always crowded. A bit expensive but Ushuaia is expensive...and a breakfast that starts too late not very convenient for early morning hikes...

A massive modern hostel where there is only private rooms and 4pax dorm which makes you fell like being more in a hotel than a hostel. Everything is clean and comfy, excellent breakfast, private bathrooms with even hair dryer. An excellent value hostel. Only issue was the wifi that wasn't working well...

An excellent small hostel with an amazing staff and a great vibe. Big common areas, a delicious breakfast and good dorms. Location is good as well (near subway, bus station that goes to airport...) with lot of restaurants, supermarkets around. Only small issue is that there are only 2 showers but we never waited long. A good choice in Santiago!

Overall a bad experience in this Tulum Pueblo Hostel. Bathroom wasn't cleaned during 3 consecutive days. No toilet paper refill quite embarassing when there are 8 people using it. Water flow (shower and sink) so weak that we had to use the outside facilities meant for other rooms (+8 people). Garden and kitchen area are not welcoming and dirty. Only positive aspect is breakfast and location with a couple of nice restaurants nearby. All that for the highest price paid so far after 3 weeks in MX
