    This is one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at! The staff are so helpful, especially sandy who goes out of her way to help you with anything you need. The hostel is really lovely and the free breakfast is the best we’ve had! Our only regret is that we didn’t get a chance to eat in the restaurant, however if the breakfast if anything to go by I’m sure it’s great. Thanks for a fabulous stay!

    What an amazing vibe at this hostel! Everyone gathers downstairs for drinks in the evenings. It has a nice boho decor. Location is fabulous straight on the beach and less than 5 min from the main street with all the restaurants and bars. The owner is incredibly helpful and speaks English, Spanish and of course Portuguese. If you are staying in a hostel in Itacare, this is the one.

    Absolutely amazing place! The owner, and the rest of the crew felt like a family. It’s like a combined restaurant/hostel/bar. Great atmosphere every night, with live music and good vibe. Best breakfast I’ve ever had in a hostel. Served whenever you wake up. Will come again!

    Mais que nada is the best hostel ever!!!! The owner and all of the other staff and volunteers were such amazing people and couldn’t have been more hospitable, constantly making sure my stay was the best it could be. The inclusive breakfast is the best I’ve ever had at a hostel and the potato gorgonzola dish you can order for dinner is the nicest meal I’ve had in my life. I couldn’t recommend a hostel more ❤️ I’ll be back x

    Sandy and her staff create one of the best atmospheres I‘ve seen in a hostel so far. The vibe fits perfectly to the hippie/surf vibe you want to experience in Itacare. Breakfast is incredible and helps to bring the hostel together every morning! :)

    My suitcase was stolen from my dorm within 3 hours of arrival at Mais Que Nada. The staff helped me file a police report & afterwards I discovered that friends of mine had also been robbed there on a previous occasion. The hostel has a great atmosphere, lots of international backpackers & friendly staff. Breakfast is incredible, with fruit, juice, eggs & sausage. My belongings were recovered in the neighbor's yard but for me the cons (price, lack of security, mildew & dirt) outweighed the pros.
