    Papaya Hostel is a lovely place to stay while you're in Bonito. It's close to the city center (5 min on foot). They provide breakfast with lots of options (I didn't really like it but there was variety). The dorm has eight beds with a shower and toilet en suite and lockers to store valuables. It feels like a pousada and most guests are in their own rooms & there isn't the backpacker atmosphere to get to know other guests. Outside there's a pool, hammocks and a kitchen you can use to cook meals.

    I stayed in one of the private rooms, this was really clean and bed was comfortable. There is a good communal space which is very relaxing with hammocks and a pool. A large breakfast is served each day with plenty of items to choose from (pastries, cheese, cakes, fruit, juices etc.). Hostel also connected me with an agency in town who helped me to arrange excursions in advance of my stay which meant that I could relax and enjoy beautiful Bonito while I was there. Thanks!

    I was very impressed by this hostel and particularly Maycon who was super helpful, helping me plan everything in advance over WhatsApp, answering questions and booking tours and transport so everything was ready when I arrived. Rooms are a good size and clean with a modern air conditioner. It’s a five minute walk from the Main Street. They also have on of the best hostel breakfasts I have had (included in price).

    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.
