    Y'all are angels ❤️ this place was so beautiful, amazing art all over the hostel giving instant atmosphere. Absolutely stellar staff, they do an amazing job keeping the vibe of the hostel alive and are the most welcoming and helpful I've found in Brazil! (Heaps of local knowledge for island adventures). Awesome events to help travellers to connect, like cooking workshops, music, cultural exchange etc. and the MOST humble yoga classes for free every morning 🌻 Open minded humans, thanks so much!

    Best place ever to stay in Ilha Grande !! The atmosphere was so friendly and the vibe there makes you want a stay more and more. The place is small and very cosy, lots of activities organized at night and the staff becomes more kind of your friend than anything else. No lockers in female bed-dorms. Breakfast amazing too but not big. Recommended 100%

    Mahalo hostel has a great vibe, it’s nice and quiet as it is tucked away from the main street but still close to bars and restaurants. There’s a chilled communal area which is really social and the staff were all really lovely, putting on events in the evening and a great yoga class in the morning :) I was in the 5 bed female dorm which felt cramped for 5 people, the mattress felt pretty thin and uncomfortable and there weren’t any lockers in the room, but overall happy with my stay here!

    I stayed for three nights at Mahalo Hostel. The hostel is really nice, great vibes and a lovely design. Big lockers are really good, beautiful open air kitchen to cook in - although not a huge amount of space, especially where the sink area is. Everything was clean, just watch out for the super cold air con! Staff were friendly and helpful! Would stay again for sure.

    Great location away from the noise of the town but only a 3 minute walk. Staff were extremely accommodating and helpful with recommendations and bookings. Cool vibe and homely feel.

    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.
