    What a place! The Search House Buzios is perfect for those looking to chill some days after Rio. It's a beatiful house in a quiet place, surrounded by nature, and beachfront ath Manguinhos beach. It's a great place for nautic sports like Kitesurf and Windsurf, with a full infrastructure. I had my first lessons there and it was incredible. Also the rooms are nice and clean, and the restaurant very tasty! Try some Poke when you are there!

    Great place, good location if you want to kite surf, has a great view and nice bar/restaurant. A little far from city center if you want to go shopping/dine, but an uber will get you there in 10mins.

    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 :)

    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.
