    Amazing place to stay, comfortable beds and pillos! Somehow Banana Leaf crew not only are extremely lovely and attentive but also manage to make a beautiful athmosphere. The place its loaded with lovely gems all over the place, not to mention it's inside the rainforest making it a very nice place to relax and enjoy nature in good company. I stayed for about 5 nights and nothing to complain about. Will definetly come back! Love you guys to pieces! Johny I miss you already! Obrigadaa!!!

    This hostel is a delight. A real hidden gem off the beaten track. The owner and staff are warm and welcoming, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The pool and the view from it is a little slice of paradise... Perfectly situated in the little town, beach and good hikes within walking distance but you may never want to leave the place!

    Excelente hostal y con una vista increíble. Perfecto si quieres ir a la Pedra do Telégrafo temprano, yo fui con otros huéspedes a las 5 am. Lo único que debes tener en cuenta es que es un poco enredado encontrar el hostal pero lo vale!

    incredible & surreal experience. It was the vacation I didn't know I needed. It is not in Rio city its in Guaratiba which is outside of Rio. Located near incredible hiking, hidden beaches, like Prainha Beach. Great sleep. Quiet & peaceful. Open plan communal areas and airy so must get over fear of bugs. Rural setting surrounded by beaches, bays, rivers, jungle. The staff made the trip. Polly was the perfect host: responsive, attentive, kind, and lent me clothes when my luggage was lost.
