    Loved our stay here. Juan and the whole team were incredibly helpful, and some of the nicest people we’ve come across in South America! They informed us of cool places to eat and to visit, and were genuinely super friendly. Would recommend to everyone.

    Highly recommended. I came already 3 years ago and really wanted to come back again! The building is beautiful, the forest is just behind and marmoset monkeys might pay a visit while you’re having a good breakfast. The pool is large enough that you can properly swim. The center of Paraty is no more than 10 min walking.

    Casa viva was idyllic. The property is beautiful, Paraty is a gorgeous town, and the staff were unbelievably helpful and friendly. Before we had even arrived, Juan (who is amazing!) found us transport to Paraty when no buses were operating. When we arrived he (and his colleagues) helped with everything from organising boat and jeep tours, to restaurant recommendations, and hanging out with us every day. Casa Viva is a home away from home and we couldn’t recommend staying there enough!

    This hostel ia fabulous. It’s cosy, with few rooms, but it has a huge external area with a beautiful garden and an amazing pool with a very nível view. The private room I stayed was really clean, with new mattress, air conditioning and smart tv with Netflix already logged. Location is good, walking distance from historical center.

    I want to say thank you, New. He is very friendly, helpful and amazing guy. Casa is big with nice rooms, but our room needs some renovation but still it’s quite nice. They provide cleaning service every day. Also there’s a swimming pool. Breakfast was really great and yummy and is free. Monkeys came to try some bananas, it was funny.

    I loved the staff at this hostel, they were extremely kind and amazing to talk to. The cleanliness, however, was very sub-par. After my stay here, I got sick for 6 days— and I believe it was because of the bacteria and stains all over my sheets (repeatedly). It is a bit out of the way of the historical center of Paraty, the walk is beautiful to get there. There also is a huge mosquito problem. Overall, I would not necessarily recommend— but if the things above dont bother you— go for it!

    Nǎo me parece um hostel e sim um hotel com quartos compartilhados. Verdade que nǎo li o regulamento do hostel porque até entao entendia que hostel é para viagem economica, entao no minimo oferece uma caozinha compartilhada, cafe da manha mesmo que seja basico. E fiquei surpresa de tudo ser vendido e com valores nǎo economicos.
