Property Description

Just 5 minutes away from Geribá beach (perfect for relaxing, swimming and surfing), and 10 min from the beautiful sunset in Manguinhos, you’ll find a new home in Búzios 🏖️

As fellow travelers, our top rated staff is available 24/7 to help you with any request or advice, and assist you in arranging cool activities, as well as how to get to the other beaches in town, easily reachable by local vans that run regularly for just R$ 5.😉

We are proud to offer a welcoming atmosphere for EVERYONE, either if you just wanna chill in our cozy common areas, relax in the pool or meet other travelers at our bar with a classic Caipirinha and local music in the background. 🍹

As for the facilities, all the beds in the shared dorms have sockets, lockers and curtains for each bed (a little bit of privacy is never enough, right?), fans and AC (mosquitos and the heat won’t keep you awake).

We’ve got common toilets spread around the house, and in the showers there’s plenty of hooks and space for you to hang your stuff (something you won’t find everywhere).

More importantly, since last January, we’re putting more cleaning ninjas during every shift, because if feels good to stay in a tidy place!

Not forgetting:
Reception 24 hours
Free Wifi all around the hostels, with different hotspots
Laundry service
Hangers for you to dry bathing suits and towels
Bar offering classic Brazilian breakfast, homemade pizzas and empanadas for a great price
Spacious kitchen, fully equipped for many people to cook simultaneously and store their stuff for later (we-ve got 3 fridges!)
Supermarkets just a 5-min walk away
AC and fans in all rooms
Towels for rent (included in the private rooms)
And lots of love from our staff!

Come and visit us! Enjoy our charming and vibrant Búzios and have a great time here with our team and the other guests!

No one in the hostel spoke Portuguese well - you would think that being a hostel in Brazil that at least one staff member would speak the language? Really struggled with the language barrier. The vibes were really off too, seems like it would be a fun party hostel but staff members just keep to themselves and are cliquey -> basically if you’re not Argentinian don’t come here. The hostel is close to one beach but far away from everything else. Horrible stairs leading to 14bed room + bad beds

An ode to Paula: My time at Buzios was absolutely splendid. I spent 6 nights there, and whilst on occasion I felt sick, tired or had to do some work on my laptop, I always had someone to help me! There was this wonderful elderly woman named Paula volunteering there, who over the course of my time at Solar I believe took a shining to me, and she completely made my week! She was at my constant beck and call, always offering to help me with anything I could imagine. She would clean my bed everyday, help me or

Overall, the place has a nice vibe to it. The dorms have everything you need although they're really nothing special and very cramped for space since the lockers don't really work so everybody's stuff is on the floor. Despite all the cleaning the (lovely) staff do, the bathrooms are still quite dirty and smell bad. Location is okay, could be closer to the centre of town which you need to take a taxi to. Fortunately, there are some great people working there which makes up for the other issues.
