    So good! The location is exactly in the middle between supermarkets, shops, small street food booths and even right in front of the hospital. However, even if it's surrounded by many hostels and shops, it's also very quite and homie type of a hostel. Everyone are smiling and the staff is very nice. Moreover, several times per week, there are conducted yoga classes with an amazing yogie. The only thing they might need to adjust is the variety of breakfast. Everything else was very nice!

    I wasn’t supposed to stay at Mahalo but loved Ilha Grande enough to stay on an extra few days...I loved it here. It’s so chilled and perfect for a few days of relaxation. Staff were always on hand and happy to help with a smile on their faces. The highlight has to be the breakfast. WOW what a spread they put on. Baked eggs, fresh bread, fresh cakes, fruit, granola, juices, spreads, salsas. Everything to kick start your day the right way. Thank you for a lovely stay x

    Maria is the sweetest woman you’ll ever meet in an hostel, she’s accommodating and always smiling! The rest of the hostel was nice, well decorated and overall okay. Some mattresses were overused and felt uncomfortable.

    The girl at the reception was really nice, forgot her name, the Colombian one! She’s great and knows a lot! Wasn’t busy when I stayed which is good - had own room for myself for a price of one bed. However it seemed like it was just staff in the hostel and no guests. Didn’t have a locker in female room, had to use in a different one, breakfast not included in price.

    + It’s a cute place overall with nice atmosphere in the common area and really nice staff. Breakfast is paid extra but the yoghurt bowl is amazing. - the beds are terrible. Its really loud every time you move and if you’re in the top bunk it feels like the whole thing will collapse. Only cold water. Bad WIFI. There was a wide gab between an old A/C and the window so we had plenty of mosquitos in our room at all times. Bring your own towel the one provided is kinda gross.
