    A great hostel and a great experience there. Staff were one of the best commodities of the hostel. V v helpful, welcoming, accommodating and good fun. Nice pool and outdoor area perfect for relaxing. Short walk to the nice bars and old town. Next to bus station for local and wider transfers. Rooms were decent and with good air con etc. Really nice atmosphere at the hostel. Really good stay and would recommend to anyone.

    Lovely little spot. The staff made me feel like part of the family. The beds and rooms were a little small. Outside dining area and pool are great.

    A good hostel, we stayed here as we wanted somewhere with a pool so we could soak up the sun and IT RAINED THE ENTIRE TIME. (Not the hostels fault obviously, but annoying nonetheless.) Hostel has a functional kitchen, pool and area to sit / socialise / eat. The room was good we had a private bathroom which was ace. Short walk to historical centre. Would recommend

    This was a very basic hostel and value for money. The rooms and especially the kitchen were quite dirty. It had a pool and a snooker table for relaxing. Staff were pretty young but friendly. Unfortunately a massive group of teenagers turned up at 6:30am on a Saturday morning and put on loud music which pretty much continued until midnight. There was no escape from the party even in the dorm rooms so be aware if booking over weekends. On the plus side its right next to the bus station!

    It was quite rainy when we were there and I would not recommend staying at this hostel while it’s rainy. The hostel doesn’t have anywhere to chill out when it’s raining unless it’s in your very damp room. (Windows don’t close properly etc) it was pretty miserable. The staff were really nice and helpful and the location and pool are cool. I’m sure when the weather is good this place would be great. We stayed in a shared dorm and my partner had some suspicious track like bites afterwards! :/

    The common areas were really great, especially the outside dining area and the pool. However the bedrooms were disappointing in comparison with broken lockers and creaky bunk beds that felt unstable / unsafe to sleep in. We were bitten loads and we fear there were bed bugs so we left a night before our booking ended. Such a shame because the free breakfast and the kitchen were really good and the people staying there were nice

    Carpe Diem is located just off one of the main streets in Paraty. To be honest it is a little too far from the Main Street and we wondered if the area was safe at night. We had no issues but the hostel itself was nice - the staff were nice to deal with and breakfast was okay. The only main issue was that there is not WiFi in all of the rooms especially in any of the private rooms. You had to walk down to reception which is somewhat inconvenient - but something to note depending on the room.

    It was ok but the rooms were really damp and the drain from the shower smelt awful, we had to cover it because the whole room smelt of s**t because of it.

    Only one staff member spoke English or Spanish. Hard to know for sure who worked there and who didn't, but the place seems to be run for the benefit of the staff not guests... Playing their own loud music by the pool, taking up the best pool chairs, never on reception when needed, no one manning the bar. Room cleaning was half hearted. Air conditioning didn't work properly (but was fixed when I complained). Breakfast was a good offering but not enough for all the guests/staff.
