    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.

    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.

    My group stayed for two nights at Search House. We loved the atmosphere. Everyone was friendly and we found it was very easy to get to know other people. There was lots of options to do water activities but we did not participate due to time constraints but having the beach right there was so cool. Our only complaint was the cleanliness specifically in our dorm room. It was bearable but we had quite a few bugs and the bathroom wasn't super clean. Regardless, it was one of our favorite hostels!

    My girlfriend and I stayed at TSH for three nights! Breakfast was really good with a great view. The 10-bed door room had its own bathroom but the beds were not so comfortable. Besides that, the staff was really amazing and the ambience was very chill. Great property, beautiful view and lots of water activities. We would come back for sure! Amazing stay!

    Nice place if you want to kite surf. Staff is friendly. Location is straight on a windy little beach so perfect for kite, however need to walk 15mins to geriba, the surf beach. The kitchen has poor facilities to cook and you can’t drink your own alcohol has there is a bar in the hostel. Pretty commun in Brazil. Really nice stay

    The common kitchen was NASTY. It was really dirty. The hostel is really big and the hob has only 4 fires which is not nearly enough. The location is great, right by the beach. And the garden is really cool. I kind of expected something a bit "more" and was a little disappointed.
