The Yak was excellent - the location was perfect, the rooms were big and clean, the staff was nice and helpful, and the vibe was great. One of the best hostels of our trip.

Lisandro and the Lobo Inn are truly awesome. The hostel is perfectly situated within a few minutes walk of amazing beaches, bars, restaurants, and super markets. The place has a cozy feeling and is very clean. Lisandro is extremely nice and accommodating - he grew up in Buzios and has great recommendations and even took us out one day to explore the island. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
The vibe of the hostel and Ubatuba is great - very laid back and friendly. Vinnie goes out of his way to make every guest feel welcome and have a good time. While the town is not yet a huge tourist destination for English-speakers, there is plenty to do, day or night and Vinnie can help you figure it out. The hostel is very clean and the open floor plan allows for plenty of sun and fresh air. I definitely recommend this place and Ubatuba.
Tough to put into words how amazing this hostel is. I decided to stay an additional 2 weeks after my initial booking. Not only does the hostel have an ideal location with perfect views and beach access, but the staff and mgt. really goes out of its way to ensure that guests have a fun and stress-free time. You can party every night or spend 3 days in a hammock and feel right at home. Finally (and most importantly), this hostel tends to attract really cool, friendly, and interesting people.
Elizabeth was very nice and accommodating. The double room is simple and clean with a large and clean bathroom (which is appreciated after a 10 hour day of hiking.)
This is probably the best all-around hostel experience that I have ever had. Every member of the staff was unbelievably friendly and knowledgeable. Being able to book all tours, tickets, and travel directly through the hostel and having it added to the room bill was a very nice feature. Special thanks to Mattias and Andrea for making our stay wonderful.
We stayed in the double ensuite. It was very clean and charming with a good bathroom. The location is about a 15 minute walk from the city center, but this can be a nice thing after a long day of activities. Eduardo, the proprietor, was extremely nice and accommodating.
