    Just amazing. Perfect beachfront location, pristine beach which has a very private feel as only accessible by boat. Meals served in the family style and all food was DELICIOUS and so healthy, came away feeling very full and refreshed. Clean rooms with mosquito nets, good showers, I can’t find anything wrong with this place! Transfer to and from the main town went without a hitch. Would love to stay again, thank you for such a perfect stay.

    This is probably the first review I’m writing because I loved Happy Hammocks that much. It’s a slice of Paradise. Everyone working there was so friendly - they create an amazing atmosphere. You can wake up and go jump straight into the sea! We saw turtles while we were there and took a kayak to a near by beach. Patrick is starting a new hostel on that beach and I believe it’s going to be amazing! I’d highly recommend this place.

    An amazing hostel still under redevelopment, can't wait to see what it's like when it's completed! Located on a protected beach and only accessible by boat you practically get the whole beach to yourself until the tour boats arrive in the afternoon!

    A hidden gem off the coast of Paraty. Currently under refurbishment, but we were made to feel very welcome and part of the 'Happy Hammock' family. The owner greeted us on the shore to take us to the Happy Hammock boat and together we sailed to the island. The hostel is located right on the beach, so was perfect for a sunset/ sunrise swim. We relaxed in the many hammocks, where we shared dinner and breakfast with the volunteers and staff. We also befriended the one-eyed cat. Highly recommend!

    Beautiful location. Food excellent. Only downside is the dorm rooms appeared neglected and were not the cleanest. Dirty showers etc. Would benefit greatly from a refurb. Luckily everything else was superb which mainly compensated for this

    Beautiful setting on what's basically a private cove looking out over endless sea. Paddle boards and canoes for use. Dinner and breakfast are delicious and good value. Lunch is more pricey. The disappointing thing was the feeling that they're trying to rinse you of every last penny. For example, we were given tiny, old towels, and then charged for them, as if they were a luxury. The location made it worth it, but the attitude of the owner wasn't appreciated.
