    I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff are really friendly and hard working. They can organise a selection of tours which michael patiently talked through. Breakfast is delicious, the rooms are clean and the whole place has a really nice relaxed feel to it - Pool, hammocks, communal kitchen/lounge.

    I am very happy with my stay. The staff is just amazing, everyone friendly and talkative. The breakfast was just amazing, lots of variety of food - fruit, desserts, yogurt, eggs etc. I was wondering if I'm gonna have enough time to eat breakfast and leave for an early morning trip - I asked about that and the lady working there simply responded that she is going to open the kitchen earlier for me to have enough time in the morning. Best wishes for everyone working there.

    This is probably the cleanest hostel I’ve stayed in during my time in South America. The pool is cleaned/maintained daily. Staff is helpful with excursion information, suggestions, and can book things for you easily. Love the hammocks! Breakfast is fantastic with many different options. The only negative is the kitchen, it needs more equipment. During my visit there were 2 plates, 2 bowls, 1 cutting board, and 1 knife which was an issue even during low season. I’d stay here again!

    Overall recommended, just staff seemed at some moments to condescend to serve hostel guests. I received wrong info from a woman at reception about main route to Campo Grande (the one she indicated to me was indeed geographically the shortest, but it was an unpaved road).

    This is a great hostel. Very clean, friendly staff, and you can book your tours directly with the office staff at the hostel. One of the downsides is that there are not enough bathrooms for the amount of people that can stay there, and that the beds are really rickety and shake a lot when you're climbing up into them. You'll wake the person above or below you when you move. Otherwise, it's super comfortable, I love the hammocks in the courtyard, the location, and the staff. Great value stay!

    The staff are good here with helping to organise tours aroind the area. They do seem overworked though! Breakfast was good. WiFi was strong. Location is perfect, very close to supermarket and bus terminal and only a short walk to town. They need to fix the lockers in the dorms as many locks were broken. They also need to get more blankets in the rooms as the AC was cold.

    Very Good

    I liked that the hostel is centrally located and has a good (standard Brazilian) breakfast. Maycon will help you book your activities and transfers. I stayed in the 8 bed dorm, it was freezing while I was there and the blanket they gave me was really thin and not sufficient. I would say the room needs a bit of maintenance to fix the damp/mould on the walls and the bathroom door handle, which kept falling off. The pool area is nice.

    Hostel cancelled my booking and didn't inform me, despite contacting me with information about the hostel. Excuse was 'overbooking' even though I booked 4 days in advance and there was plenty of availability on hostelworld at the time. Offered to put me up in another hostel the other side of town which has no reviews so didn't feel a suitable replacement compared to Papaya being a central located, reviewed hostel. Poor customer service & handling of the situation.
