    This hostel is absolutely fantastic! The location is perfect! Just beachfront, a few steps and you are in the water! For those looking for water sports they offer all kind of activities. Besides that is walk distance from Geriba, most popular beach in Buzios and great surf spot. And you are only 10 minutes from the center, by van, which is cheap and 24 hours! Uber is also available. Dont miss the chance to get to know this hostel, just one of the best i ever stay in my life!

    They put me in a room with no bunk beds, they where individual beds and that was a PLUS! Amazing breakfast, beautiful location, beautiful house and garden and lots of thing to entertain, room with instruments and big tv and a slack line! Loved it! a bit far from the center but its right next to a big beach and the van to the center its just 3.50 reals so no problem at all.

    Loved my stay at this hostel. It’s in a beautiful location right on the beach. The dorm was clean and looking out onto the sea. The staff here are amazing and really friendly, and let you join in on all their water activities. It was a very relaxing stay :)

    It was an amazing place to stay. Beach so close on calm days without wind you can just float in the water on sunset. Great activities with Filipe who really made this place an experience to remember. He is an asset to TSH. Great staff in general Private room was everything we expected and more. So clean and private. Dorms were great having no bunks and a beautiful view. Lockers were not secure and do not lock. I mentioned this but they were not fixed. Also the kitchen cabinets are not complete.

    The hostel is right on the beach which is amazing. It isn’t that close to the centre but there are vans or Uber to get into the centre and there is shops, restaurants and supermarkets in walking distance. The atmosphere is really nice, the staff are lovely and there is a great free breakfast.

    Very Good

    Really clean hostel in a pretty perfect location if you're in the area for kite-surfing or sailing. As a surfer it's a bit of a walk to Geriba where the waves are. You're definitely better off staying in one of the many pousada's closer to the surf. Hostel itself was clean, tidy and super relaxed. The staff were always on hand to help out and all super relaxed. Probably because it was in the middle of low-season, the atmosphere was pretty much non-existent.

    It is quite far from the center (taking into account how small Buzios is). If you have a car, it is doable; otherwise, you should use a van or an Uber to reach the center. Getting into the hostel is also not ideal as it is a very long way through a tight street. Definitely it is not the right place to meet people nor make any friends; there are mainly day guests practicing water sports which use basically the entire outside area. Not a beach to chill. The staff is friendly enough, but that's it.
