    Awesome stay here. Very social space upstairs if you put in the effort, everybody is cooking or chilling and just having a good time. Staff are super nice and will help you best they can. Close to everything (lol everything is in one spot at Ilha Grande). Not many bathrooms, but I didn't really find it to be an issue. Chance of copping the infamous triple bunk, I did. Not a big deal, but just a heads up.

    Small & cozy hostel, perfect size to meet people. Rooms are a decent size, en-suite, aircon at night & cleaned every day. There are no lockers but space for your things & shelving/plug sockets by all beds. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself, which is great. WiFi was good, staff really helpful & friendly, you can also get island info & book tours & transfers. Only downside is there are regular power cuts on the island & there is no generator (most other places had them).

    I was only here one night but really liked the place! The hostel is in a good location & the staff are really nice & welcoming! The breakfast was incredible, the best I’ve had in South America! The only downside was that the room was quite cramped & I had to use my own pillow as the hostel ones were too hard!

    I have stayed here one night and had to leave. The place is very dirty and beds awful. There isn't security lockers from what I know. They have a nice terace upstairs and downstairs, the location is also good. Staff were nice.
