    Really great relaxed hang out vibe and Paraty has so much to offer. PROS: cute courtyard with pool, all female dorm was spacious (others are not), close to nice restaurants and bars, helpful staff, 5 minute walk from bus station. CONS: I’m not a fan of in suite bathrooms, breakfast is extra, lockers and doors are noisy. But I would still absolutely recommend this place.

    I did like it very much ! The atmosphere was chilled and offered everything a heart could ask for ! The staff was outstanding nice and helped in any case ! I had in no second any reasons to impeach my security or safety in this Hostel! The location is very central it took us 5 min by feet from and to the bus station from where you can go further to São Paulo , Rio or Ilha Grande etc. Cleanliness was the only topic which wasn’t perfect but for the price very good as well :)!

    Really nice hostel, within walking distance from everything in Paraty. Keycard room access and spacious lockers. Large & pretty social area with a little pool. Atmosphere was quiet, it seemed that there were no evening or social events, but we only stayed one night so maybe we were unlucky.

    Everything is as described except the kitchen that is a real joke : only 2 stoves and they aren't powerful enough to boil water... Hopefully the romms are clean and the staff is helpful!

    We arrived and the staff guy was literally drunk and high, couldn't understand a word even in portuguese. Honestly insulting and pathetic. Other than that,the environment was great and the location was pretty good.

    Beware! Money stolen from PRIVATE room! We would have had a good stay here if it wasn't for money being stolen from our private room while we were out on the hostel organized boat trip. I keep an emergency stash of USD in a HIDDEN zipper in my backpack. Upon returning from the boat trip (on our last day), I found the zipper in my pack open and $100 USD missing. Brought to the attn of staff that day and again the next morning before leaving. Have tried to WA/Text/Email. No help or reply!
