    Located at just a 5 minute walk from the main pier of Abraao, it's near a supermarket, drugstores, and plenty of restaurants. It's very cosy, has a calm atmosphere, the bathrooms are always clean, the bunk beds are comfy and the breakfast is very nutritious. Luis and Mario are very helpful and attentive: they know the island very well and can tell you which activities are best at a given day, like boat trips, trails and hikes. This is the hostel you should stay at Ilha Grande, definitely.

    Marlin is a family-owned and - managed hostel, which the family treats as an extension of their own home. The family ensures every detail is finely maintained. After staying in close to 100 hostels, Marlin is arguably the cleanest. Also, the father & son duo, Luis and Juan, will optimize your experience at Isla Grande. They will help you with everything that you need.

    We stayed 4 nights in a 6 person bunk. It was quiet and not too crowded but we made some new friends. Very clean hostel. Decent fresh breakfast. Beds were fine. Rooms were a little warm for us even when aircon was on at night. Mario is awesome with suggestions and what to do each day. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend staying here!

    Lovely little hostel in the heart of Abraao! It is a short walk away from the pier, beach, shops, bars, restaurants... yet you wouldn't know it, as it is really peaceful allowing for a good night's sleep. It is very clean and comfortable, the breakfast is good, Luis and the rest of the staff are very welcoming and helpful, it is set up with a central communal area so you can meet other guests... all of which make it worth paying a little bit more for!

    Luiz was very welcoming and gave excellent advice as to what to see.The hostel is very clean and tidy. The breakfast provided was a tasty continental breakfast: bread, rolls, cheese, ham, cake and cereal. The location is excellent - very central. My friends and I had been traveling for a little while already and needed to do laundry but there isn’t a washing machine. However they do have adequate facilities for hand washing and drying your clothes. Overall one of our favourite hostels in brazil!

    Great experience at the Marlin Hostel. Very easy to reach from the port, beds were comfortable, showers were clean. Breakfast was really good - fresh fruit and fresh juice along with cake and the usual spread. Luis helped us greatly and gave us recommendations on what to do on the island. Really can’t recommend this place enough. Was a pleasure to stay here.

    Beautiful hostel that is exceptionally well kept. It’s in the perfect location, close to the main pier where the ferry gets in. Mário and Luis are great hosts and make you feel at home. The breakfast was nice and it was great to have air con in the rooms. While the lockers are only small, there was enough room for valuables and the place feels very secure. Would definitely recommend!

    was only here for a night whilst another hostel was booked out. Rooms are not that spacious and there are not a lot of bathrooms available for the number of people staying there. free breakfast is alright and the owner is a really nice guy.
