Property Description

We are a dream come true. The idea of ​​opening a hostel was born when we used to receive people at home: from all over the world, all ages, all types of personalities, different stories to tell, with the pleasure of sharing new experiences, dealing with love and respect to everyone, with many animated conversations in the middle of delicious meals and good wine, and of course, remembering wistfully when they leave.

In Local Friend we value the spirit of friendship, the sense of solidarity with those who have the desire to travel, meet and share experiences. We believe everything you need to feel at home are simple things like a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, nice temperature, an invigorating breakfast and warm attention of those who receive us.

Through a good accommodation, with an affordable price, we give our space so people of around the world and different ages can share culture and customs, things that only a good hostel can offer! Bright, clean, comfortable and air-conditioned rooms. Come see!

    Local Friend è un posto unico. Difficile descrivere l’esperienza del nostro soggiorno in questo corto paragrafo. Eduardo e Flavio hanno la straordinaria capacità di farti sentire parte della famiglia, di farti sentire davvero il benvenuto, di intrattenerti e di insegnarti molto. Passare il tempo nell’ostello stesso diventa un piacere. Questa magica atmosfera ci ha fatto venire un’incredibile voglia di tornare, non solo per Buzios, ma sopratutto per i nostri local friends.

    The local friend! If you stay there you will see that the name of the hostel totally matches the reception and the service that you get. The breakfast is great, the staff gives you all the assistance, always treating you as a friend. I guess I never felt so welcomed and so at home in a hostel.

    If you go to local you will become part of the family. Eddu was welcoming, friendly, chill and so hospitable. He totally made our stay what it was and went out of his way for us! He offers free equipment for snorkelling, biking and surfing. He also gave us loads of tips on places to go around buzios. Beds were comfortable and had hot water. I will say...this place needs a lot of love, it is run down and a bit of money invested would go a long way. But we mean stay, cheers bro 🤙🏼
